KPK detainees to observe Idul Fitri ceremonies in prisons
Muslim graft convicts who are now being detained in the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) detention center in Kuningan, South Jakarta, will be able leave the detention center to partake in Idul Fitri religious ceremonies, expected to fall on Sunday.
Female detainees will perform Idul Fitri prayers in the Pondok Bambu penitentiary while the male detainees will do so in the Cipinang penitentiary in East Jakarta.
“After the prayers they will be escorted back to the KPK detention center,” a KPK officer who declined to be named said on Saturday.
Families of the detainees will be able to visit their relatives on the Idul Fitri holidays.
“The families can visit them from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.,” he said as quoted by tempo.co.
Currently, there are 10 detainees in the KPK detention center, including former Bank Indonesia senior deputy governor Miranda S. Goeltom, graft convict in the SEA Games scandal Mindo Rosalina Manulang, graft convict in the power plant case, Neneng Sri Wahyuni, corruption court judges, Kartini Marpaung and Heru Kusbandono--who were only arrested by the KPK on Friday--and Buol regent Amran Batalipu.
