The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has summoned four police officers in relation to a graft case involving former Lippo Group executive Eddy Sindoro. 

The four officers were formerly aides of former Supreme Court secretary Nurhadi, who allegedly accepted bribes from Eddy in connection to the handling of a case review involving Lippo Group companies. 

"Until this afternoon, the four police officers who used to be Nurhadi's aides have not yet arrived," KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said in a statement on Wednesday. "Investigators will wait for them until this evening."

The KPK had sent a letter to the National Police requesting that the four officers be made available for questioning. The antigraft body has not yet explained what specifically the officers are to be questioned about.

Eddy was named a graft suspect in November 2016. He was alleged to have instructed Doddy Ariyanto, who worked for Lippo subsidiary PT Paramount Enterprise International, to bribe Central Jakarta District Court registrar Edy Nasution. Both Edy and Doddy were sentenced to prison in 2016.

After being named a suspect, Eddy fled abroad for two years before eventually surrendering to Indonesian authorities in Singapore last month. (kmt)
