The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) says it raided the home, office and apartment of Futures Exchange Supervisory Board (Bappebti) chief Syahrul R Sempurnajaya.
KPK spokesperson Johan Budi said that the raids, done in connection with the bribe scandal implicating Bogor Legislative Council speaker Iyus Djuher, were done at Jl. Haji Jihan No. 73 in Cipete Utara, South Jakarta; Jl. Kramat Raya No. 172, Central Jakarta; and Senopati Tower in South Jakarta.
"We suspect that there is evidence connected to the case at those locations," Johan told a press conference on Friday at KPK headquarters in Kuningan, South Jakarta.
The case centers on allegations that Sentot Susilo, director of trading company PT Gerindo Perkasa, allegedly bribed Iyus through Usep Jumeno and Listo Wely Sabu, both Bogor administration employees, to secure a certificate for a 100 hectares in Tanjung Sari, Bogor, to build a luxury cemetery.
Iyus was arrested on Wednesday during a two-day operation which also saw the arrest of Sentot, Usep, Wely and Nana Supriatna, an alleged middlemen of Sentot, all of whom were named suspects by the KPK.
The KPK confiscated Rp 800 million (US$82,372) and two cars during the operation. Iyus was supposed to receive Rp 500 million while the other Rp 300 million was to be distributed among the middlemen.
