The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) extended on Wednesday the detention period of graft suspect Miranda S Goeltom for another 40 days.
“KPK investigators have sent her [Miranda] a letter, informing her about the extension of her detention, which starts from June 21 for the following 40 days,” acting KPK spokesman Priharsa Nugraha told reporters at the KPK headquarters in Jakarta.
Miranda, a former Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor, has been detained by the KPK since June 1 for her involvement in the 2004 vote-buying scandal.
The KPK also questioned Miranda on Wednesday in relation to her status as suspect in the case.
KPK chairman Abraham Samad has said that the KPK might transfer Miranda’s case to the Corruption Court by the end of this month.
