The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has questioned the family of former Constitutional Court chief justice Akil Mochtar in connection to a money-laundering case.

'€œAll of them are being questioned in relation to suspect AM (Akil Mochtar),'€ said the commission'€™s chief of communication and information, Priharsa Nugraha, in Jakarta on Monday, as quoted by Antara news agency.

They include Akil'€™s wife, Ratu Rita Akil, and their two children, Aries Adhitya Shafitri and Riki Januar Ananda.

Besides Akil'€™s wife and children, the KPK also questioned House of Representatives secretary-general Winatuningtyastiti.

The KPK has confiscated several of Akil'€™s assets, comprising a house and a plot of land in Karang Duhur village, Petanahan, Kebumen regency, Central Java; the family home at Jl. Pancoran Indah III No.8, South Jakarta; a 6,000-square-meter plot of land planted with mahogany trees in Cimuleuk village, Waluran, Sukabumi; and a 12,600 square-meter plot of land in Singkawang, West Kalimantan. The commission has also seized 33 cars and 31 motorcycles of various brands allegedly related to Akil.

Akil'€™s wife was also questioned in connection to her position as the manager of CV Ratu Samagad in Pontianak, which was found to have made a Rp 100 billion (US$8.2 million) transaction, according to a Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (PPATK) report.

Together with five other people, Akil has been named a suspect in a graft case centering on court rulings on disputes in the election of regional heads in Lebak and Gunung Mas since Oct. 3.

Akil has also been implicated in a graft case related to the legal dispute of a mayoral election in Palembang, South Sumatra, and the election of Empat Lawang regent in the province. (ebf)
