The South and West Sulawesi Police have named Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Abraham Samad a suspect in a document forgery case relating to identification documents.
The decision to name Abraham was disclosed by South Sulawesi Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Endi Sutendi in a press briefing in Makassar on Tuesday.
"The date for the naming of Abraham Samad as a suspect was Feb. 9, 2015, following a series of meetings at the detective and crime agency with the presence of police officers [from the South and West Sulawesi Police],' Endi said as quoted by kompas.com.
According to Endi, investigators had compiled sufficient evidence consisting of a family card, an ID card under the name Feriyani Lim and her passport, all believed to be bogus.
"Investigators have questioned 23 witnesses from the immigration, district and subdistrict offices, as well as other related parties. In this case, Abraham Samad acted as the head of the family, while Feriyani was a member of the family," Endi said.
According to previous reports, Feriyani, a resident of Pontianak, West Kalimantan, was named a suspect in a passport forgery case.
In her proposal for the processing of her passport in 2007, Feriyani claimed to be a member of Abraham's family, with an address located in Boulevar, Masale subdistrict, Panakkukang district, Makassar. (hhr)
