Graft suspect Nur Mahmudi ready for questioning, says lawyer Former Depok mayor Nur Mahmudi Ismail (kompas.com/Rio Kuswandi)

The lawyer of former Depok mayor Nur Mahmudi Ismail assured reporters on Thursday that his client was ready to be questioned by police in relation to a graft case against him, despite having requested to postpone the interview by a week earlier that same day.

Pak Nur is calm. He was fine when I last saw him and is ready for the interview,” Abdul Halim said as reported by kompas.com.

Nur Mahmudi was expected to come in for questioning on Thursday in response to a Depok City Police summons, but he was instead represented by his lawyer, who asked to delay the interview.

Abdul said his client needed to be checked by a doctor after sustaining a serious injury during a volleyball match at his home in Depok, West Java, on Aug. 18.

“He bumped into his friend during the match, fell backwards and sustained a big bruise on his face and the back of his head. He’s also limping a bit,” Abdul said.

Abdul also denied rumors that Nur Mahmudi was suffering from memory loss.

Nur Mahmudi was named a suspect in a Rp 10 billion (US$673,144) graft case related to a road-widening project on Jl. Nangka in 2015.

He was the former chairman of the Islamic-based Justice Party, which later became the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS). He served as Depok mayor between 2006 and 2016. (nor)
