The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has reportedly arrested 10 people — comprising officials from the Bekasi administration in West Java and private companies — in relation to property permits.
KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said on Monday that the KPK had also seized an amount of money in Singapore dollars from the suspects.
A number of workrooms at the office of the Bekasi administration had also been sealed, he added.
“We will disclose the names in the upcoming press conference,” Febri said, adding that the press conference was likely to be held on Monday afternoon.
The suspects were taken to the KPK headquarters for questioning. (kuk)
