Dahlan revises names of
alleged “unlawful”

State-Owned Enterprises Minister Dahlan Iskan delivers another letter, containing revised names of lawmakers that allegedly asked state-owned companies’ officials for kickbacks, to the House of Representatives (DPR) ethics council.

The House ethics council chairman M Prakosa said on Tuesday that the council had received the letter on Monday. “The letter mentions revision of lawmakers' names that have been delivered to us before,” he told kompas.com, without giving further details.

On Thursday last week, Dahlan delivered five names that had allegedly asked kickbacks from state airlines PT Merpati Nusantara through a letter. In the letter, the names mentioned are AQ, IQ, ATP, LM, ARW.

Prakosa, however, said that there was no additional names in the list, only the changed ones. “We will summon Dahlan to ask further explanation on his reports,” he added.
