The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Saturday searched three offices of state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL Indonesia in Jakarta and Surabaya, East Java, as part of its probe into a bribery case pertaining to the company’s export of two warships to the Philippines.

The KPK previously arrested several PAL officials for allegedly receiving US$25,000 from a Manila-based company that brokered the purchase of the two warships.

The two PT PAL offices that were searched in Jakarta were located in Tanah Abang and MTH Square, KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said as quoted by

KPK seized several documents during the search in Surabaya, which lasted for 11 hours. “We also confiscated several items of electronic evidence and some money,” Febri said.
