The Corruption Eradication Commision (KPK) seized a house worth Rp 5.8 billion (US$596,000) belonging to Ahmad Fathanah, one of the suspects in the beef import shambles, on Thursday.

According to Kenang of the Pesona Kayangan housing complex, Fathanah has paid Rp 3.8 billion ($390,000) for the house, which has six bedrooms and a swimming pool. Rp 2 billion is outstanding.

'€œWe promised to return the money [that Fathanah had paid], but the rest of the house still belongs to us." he said.

Kenang initially planned to sell the house when Fathanah was arrested in January 2013.

Fathanah'€™s third wife, Sefty Sanustika, said that the house was for her and her baby. Sefty stayed at a Margonda Residence apartment, near the house, while awaiting the house'€™s construction. Sefty moved out of the apartment at the end of January when KPK investigators seized the apartment along with her jewelry and diamonds.

'€œNot all of his wealth came from that case. Why did they seize everything? How should I support my daughter?'€ Sefty asked. (nai)
