National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian says he has ordered investigators to exercise prudence in processing a case against two Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) commissioners on allegations of document forgery and abuse of power.

The case centers on a travel ban the KPK issued against Golkar Party chairman Setya Novanto in early October after he won a pretrial motion that annulled his suspect status in the KPK’s investigation into the high-profile e-ID graft case.

"I have ordered investigators to question more experts [witnesses] that may have different interpretations of the matter,” Tito told reporters on Thursday. 

The accusations came after an individual, identified as Sandy Kurniawan, reported KPK commissioners Agus Rahardjo and Saut Situmorang to the police. The two leaders have yet to be named suspects. (ipa)
