KPK gets new information on flow of funds in e-ID graft
The Jakarta Post
The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has received details provided by the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) regarding the flow of Rp 2.3 trillion (US$172 million) that had been stolen from the electronic identity card (e-ID) procurement project.
KPK deputy chairman Alexander Marwata said that the information concerned financial transaction of four firms that are part of the State Printing Company (PNRI) Consortium, which was appointed to implement the project.
Alexander said the firms were PT Superintending Company of Indonesia (Sucofindo), PT LEN Industri, PT Quadra Solution and PT Sandipala Arthaputra.
"[The flow] was pretty simple. Money from the government went into a bank account controlled by the consortium, and we're looking into how the money from the consortium went to other [parties]," Alexander said as quoted by kompas.com.
He said that the PPATK data would help the investigation in gaining details on how Rp 2.3 trillion — from the allocated budget of Rp 5.9 trillion — was stolen and how it could have likely ended up in overseas bank accounts.
"We will find out who has enjoyed the money; an audit of the Rp 2.3 trillion would show us. We’ll just follow the money," he said.
At least 37 House of Representatives members have been implicated in the e-ID graft case, including House Speaker and senior Golkar politician Setya Novanto.
