The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has confiscated a Honda Jazz and a watch said to be given to adult magazine model Vitalia Sesha by Ahmad Fathanah, an aide to former Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) chair Luthfi Hasan Ishaaq.

'€œAccording to Vitalia, the car and Chopard watch were given by Ahmad Fathanah to her as a friend,'€ the commission's spokesperson Johan Budi said on Monday, as quoted by Antara news agency.

The Swiss-made watch is worth around Rp 70 million (US$7,200).

On Friday, actress Khadijah Azhari, popularly known as Ayu Azhari, handed over Rp 20 million and $1,800 in cash she received from Fathanah to the KPK.

'€œThe money, according to her (Ayu), she was to perform in an event. While the event has not taken place she was given a down payment in cash,'€ said Johan on Friday.

Fathanah and four others, including Luthfi Hasan Ishaaq, are graft suspects in the case of the government-run beef importation scam. (ebf)
