KPK chairman vows to put
Angelina, Miranda behind
bars soon


Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Abraham Samad pledged that his commission would soon detain all those who the KPK named suspects in corruption cases.

“Everyone who the KPK names as suspects will be detained,” Abraham said at the House of Representatives on Monday.

Abraham explained that there were still steps that needed to be undertaken before the KPK could arrest the suspects and put them behind bars.

“It is just a matter of completing their dossiers,” he said as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Among the high-profile corruption suspects who still enjoy their freedom despite their status as KPK suspects are Democratic Party politician Angelina Sondakh and former Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor Miranda Swaray Goeltom

Also in the list is National Mandate Party (PAN) politician and House budget committee member Wa Ode Nurhayati.

The KPK, however, has slapped travel bans on all three women, which forbid them from leaving the country. (sat)
