KPK to grill Miranda Goeltom Monday morning
Graft suspect Miranda Swaray Goeltom is undergoing further questioning by investigators of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Monday morning, her lawyer has confirmed.
Miranda’s lawyer, Andi Simangunsong, was quoted by tribunnews.com as saying that the former Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor was scheduled for questioning by the anti-graft body’s investigators at around 10 a.m. on Monday.
KPK spokesman Johan Budi has confirmed the information.
Miranda was apprehended by the anti-graft body on June 1 after facing approximately seven hours of interrogation. She is currently being detained at the KPK’s detention facility in Kuningan, South Jakarta.
The Jakarta socialite is the latest person to be interrogated in relation to the 2004 vote-buying scandal in connection to her selection as Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor by the lawmakers of the House of Representatives at the time.
Twenty-eight 28 lawmakers have been convicted for accepting bribes in her election.
Businesswoman Nunun Nurbaeti, who acted as a go-between between Miranda and the lawmakers, was sent to jail for two-and-a-half years earlier this year. (asa)
