The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is scheduled to auction seized assets at its office in South Jakarta on Friday.
“We are cooperating with the Jakarta III States Assets and Auction Services Office [KPKNL] to auction 54 assets,” said KPK prosecutor Irene Putri during a press conference on Tuesday.
Among the 54 items on offer are gadgets, jewelry and cars, amounting to around Rp 5 billion (US$369,631).
“This is also the first time we are offer paintings, which were confiscated from graft convict Ahmad Fathanah,” Irene went on to say.
Ahmad was sentenced for his role in a corruption case centering on beef import quotas at the Agriculture Ministry and his involvement in money laundering. The beef graft case also implicated former Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) chairman Luthfi Hasan Ishaaq
The auction is open to the public, but participants must first register at the Finance Ministry’s Directorate General of State Assets website to receive an activation code and a catalogue.
This will be the second open auction held by the KPK. It offered 22 assets during its first open auction on Sept. 22. The antigraft body has held graft asset auctioning events routinely since 2015. (ebf)
