E-ID defendants to serve as justice collaborators with KPK
The Jakarta Post
The defendants in the e-ID case, Irman and Sugiharto, have expressed their gratitude to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for granting their request to become justice collaborators.
“I thank KPK leaders for granting our request,” Sugiharto said as he read out his final defense at a hearing at the Jakarta Corruption Court on Wednesday.
KPK prosecutors conveyed their approval to the two former Home Ministry officials in a hearing last month, during which they read out their sentence demand for the defendants, kompas.com reported.
Meanwhile, Irman stated in Wednesday’s hearing that they had told the KPK everything they knew about the e-ID case, including about the roles of other parties suspected to have intervened in the discussion of the project’s budget at the House of Representatives.
In last month’s hearing, prosecutors stated both defendants were guilty and demanded that the judges sentence Irman and Sugiharto to seven and five years in prison, respectively. (kuk/ebf)
