Papua Governor Lukas Enembe came to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) headquarters on Wednesday to clarify his wealth report, which was reportedly submitted to the antigraft body.

The governor arrived at the KPK headquarters on Jl. Rasuna Said in South Jakarta at 1 p.m. He kept tight-lipped about details of his visit. The governor also declined to talk to journalists when he left the KPK building at 6:15 p.m.

KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah told journalists Lukas’ visit was to clarify details of his wealth report. “There was some information in the report we needed him to clarify,” he confirmed.

Under the 2002 KPK Law, the antigraft body is required to evaluate state officials’ wealth reports, the submissions of which are required as part of the KPK's efforts to prevent corruption.

Lukas is a witness in a graft case related to the use of scholarship funds for the 2016 fiscal year. The case is being handled by the National Police Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim). On Sept. 4, Lukas fulfilled the police’s summons for a questioning regarding the case after skipping two previous questionings. (ebf)
