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