Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators have begun questioning businessman Andi "Narogong" Agustinus for the second time in the electronic identity card (e-ID) graft case.

Andi, who arrived earlier this morning, is being questioned as a witness in connection with a new suspect in the e-ID graft case, Markus Nari, a Golkar Party faction member of the House of Representatives from 2009 to 2014, who was named on July 19.

"He is a witness in the case of Markus Nari," KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said as quoted by tempo.co.

Markus, who is already charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly intimidating a trial witness, is the fifth suspect in the graft case of the e-ID procurement project.

Andi himself was named suspect in the e-ID case after admitting to have given US$1.5 million to Home Ministry officials who were in charge of the project.

The KPK has also named two senior officials from the ministry, Irman and Sugiharto, as suspects, and late last month, named House Speaker Setya Novanto as another suspect in the case. (mtr)
