The South Jakarta District Court adjourned on Monday a hearing for a pretrial motion filed by former United Development Party (PPP) chairman Muhammad “Romy” Romahurmuziy to challenge his suspect status in a case of alleged bribery.
The decision was made based on a request by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).
"The April 22 hearing is postponed to May 6," presiding judge Agus Widodo said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.
KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said the KPK was preparing evidence for the hearing.
"We still need to work and prepare the relevant evidence," Febri said as quoted by Antara news agency.
Romy was arrested on March 16 for allegedly accepting Rp 300 million (US$21,180) in a case of bribery centering on the promotion process at the Religious Affairs Ministry.
The KPK also named two other officials graft suspects in the case.
Romy is currently hospitalized at the National Police Hospital in East Jakarta due to an illness. The KPK is waiting for information from the hospital’s doctors before determining what action to take against the suspect. (ggq)
