Anti-graft agency imposes overseas travel ban on Jakarta governors special staff

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) imposed an overseas travel ban on a member of the Jakarta governors special staff and a director of real estate developer Agung Sedayu Group over an alleged bribery case on Thursday.

The overseas travel ban is part of the KPKs efforts to facilitate its investigation into the alleged bribery case.

"The testimonies of the two people will most likely enable the KPK to deepen its investigation," Head of the KPKs Information and Publication Division Priharsa Nugraha said at the KPK building.

The anti-graft body filed an application to the Directorate General of Immigration at the Law and Human Rights Ministry for the overseas travel ban on the two people on Wednesday. The overseas travel ban is valid for six months.

Earlier, the KPK also imposed an overseas travel ban on three people for allegedly bribing members of the Jakarta Provincial Legislative Council.

The KPK has named the director of Agung Sedayu Group identified by his initials as SK as a witness who must be questioned. SK has been subjected to a six-month overseas travel ban since April 1, 2016.

In addition, it also has imposed an overseas travel ban on other two people identified by their initials as GP and BK for six months starting April 4, 2016.

The KPK is focusing on alleged bribery case related to reclamation projects in the Jakarta Bay, including examining how private companies could be involved in the reclamation projects.

On Friday (April 1), the KPK named a man identified by initials as MS as a suspect in a bribery case related to the deliberation on the draft bylaw regarding reclamation projects in the Jakarta Bay.

MS has reportedly received a bribe from the president director of PT Agung Podomoro Land identified by his initials as AW who has been named a suspect.
