Skalanews - The investigator of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) today summoned the elected Regent of Temanggung, Al-Khadziq.

Al-Khadziq was summoned to be questioned as a witness in the case of alleged bribery in the management of contract termination of 'Perjanjian Karya Pengusahaan Pertambangan Batubara' (PKP2B) PT Asmin Koalindo Tuhup (PT AKT) in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

Al-Khadziq will be questioned for the suspect Samin Tan (SMT), the owner of PT Borneo Lumbung Energi & Metal Tbk

"The person was examined as a witness for the SMT suspect," KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said in his office, Jalan Kuningan Persada, South Jakarta, Wednesday (10/4).

It is known that Al-Khadziq was the husband of the convicted bribery in the agreement on the contract of the Riau-1 PLTU construction project, Eni Maulani Saragih.

Investigators are now exploring the flow of bribery funds in the management of the termination contract of the PT AKT through Al-Khadziq.

In addition to Al-Khadziq, the team also called one other witness from the private sector, Mahbub. Originally, Mahbub will also be questioned for Samin Tan's investigation.

Previously, Samin Tan was named a suspect in a suspected bribery arrangement for the termination contract of Perjanjian Karya Pengusahaan Pertambangan Batubara (PKP2B) PT Asmin Koalindo Tuhup (PT AKT) in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.

This case is a case development in the alleged bribery of the Riau-1 PLTU project that ensnared the former Deputy Chair of the House of Representatives Commission VII from the Golkar faction, Eni Maulani Saragih, former Minister of Social Affairs as well as former Secretary General of the Golkar Party, Idrus Marham and Blackgold Natural Resources Limited shareholder Johannes B. Kotjo.

Samin Tan allegedly gave Eni Saragih around Rp5 billion in bribes. The bribe was given by Samin Tan related to the management of PT Asmin Koalindo Tuhup (AKT) PKP2B termination at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM).

The coal conglomerate Tan underwent a pre-trial examination on the status of the suspect on Thursday (28/4) but was not detained.

For his actions, Samin Tan is suspected of violating Article 5 Paragraph (1) letter a or Article 13 of Law Number 31 of 1999 as amended by Law Number 20 of 2001 concerning the Eradication of Juncto Corruption Article 64 Paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code. (Frida Astuti/bus)
