KPK hands over dossier on Miryam to prosecutors
The Jakarta Post
Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators handed over to prosecutors on Wednesday the dossier on former Hanura Party lawmaker Miryam S. Haryani, a perjury suspect who previously testified in the high-profile e-ID card case.
“After receiving the dossier, prosecutors have to prepare the indictment and other documents before they register the case with the court. They plan to register it in early July,” KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said on Thursday.
Febri said the handover of Miryam’s dossier affirmed that the KPK’s case against the lawmaker was proceeding.
“All evidence will be shown only at the trial, including that indicating both the suspect’s perjury and the intimidation she was allegedly subjected to by certain parties,” he said.
The evidence includes a record of the KPK’s investigation into Miryam.
According to case investigation documents, Miryam stated that she had distributed a portion of the Rp 5.9 trillion (US$ 398 million) project funds to several House lawmakers. During a hearing in the trial of graft defendants Irman and Sugiharto on March 23, Miryam testified that she had never distributed a portion of the funds to the lawmakers.
The KPK named Miryam a suspect on April 5 for allegedly giving a false testimony in the graft trial of the two former Home Ministry officials. She claimed that KPK investigators had intimidated her into making the statement. (kuk/ebf)
