Ex-KPK Commissioner Bambang Widjojanto to Be Summoned Again
Jakarta. The National Police will again summon non-active deputy of Corruption Eradication Commissioner (KPK) Bambang Widjojanto next week for questioning over his alleged role in a perjury case.
“We received the file on Wednesday to be completed. One of the directives is that we are required to get additional information from (Bambang),” police spokesman Sr. Comr. Daniel Bolly Tifaona said on Thursday in Jakarta.
Daniel added that the police would immediately issue a letter to summon Bambang for questioning next week.
“We will also investigate several other witnesses to complete the file and get it to the P21 dossier stage so it can go to trial,” said Daniel.
Completion of a P21 is the last stage in a police investigation before the file is submitted to prosecutos before trial proceedings.
Last week, the police reportedly issued a warrant to arrest Bambang who was named a suspect in January in a years-old perjury case.
The suspended KPK commissioner, however, was not arrested.
Meanwhile, Zulfahmi Arsyad, another suspect in the same case, will face trial and has been detained.
“We have sent the suspect and his dossier to the AGO. This means that the case can go to trial and prosecutors will decide on a trial date,” said Daniel.
Bambang is accused of persuading witnesses to provide false testimony during his time working as a defense lawyer in a local election dispute in 2010.
Bambang has denied knowing Zulfahmi who is the cousin of Central Kalimantan’s West Kotawaringin Regent Ujang Iskandar, who eventually won the election dispute.
