JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The anti-graft commission (KPK) has named the President Director of PT Quadra Solution, Anang Sugiana Sugihardjo, as a new suspect in electronic ID card (e-KTP) project corruption. Anang was questioned as a witness in the case, and now KPK has named him as the sixth suspect in the case.
"We have named Mr. ASS, President Director of PT Quadra Solution, as a suspect," said the Deputy Chairman of KPK, Laode M Syarif, at his office, Jalan Kuningan Persada, South Jakarta, Wednesday (27/9).
Anang is allegedly involved in the case with the other suspects, which are Setya Novanto, Andi "Narogong" Agustinus, Irman, Sugiharto, and Markus Nari.
According to Syarif, Anang’s company is a consortium member that won the e-KTP project with Perum PNRI, PT Sucofindo, PT LEN Industri, and PT Sandipala Arthaputra. "PT Quadra Solution is one of the companies in the project consortium," Syarif said.
Anang is also suspected as the one who bribed the House Chairman, Setya Novanto, and the other House members when the e-KTP project progressed in 2011-2012.
"ASS is allegedly involved in handing an amount of money to SN and the House members through Andi Agustinus in e-KTP project," Syarif said.
Syarif explained they name Anang as a suspect based on some evidence and information they gathered in the previous trials of former officials in the Internal Affairs Ministry, Irman and Sugiharto, and entrepreneur Andi "Narogong" Agustinus.
According to the testimony of Sugiharto, former official in the Internal Affairs Ministry’s Directorate General of Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil), Anang was asked to prepare US$500,000 and Rp1 billion to be handed to a politician of Hanura Party, Miryam S Haryani.
"ASS is also suspected of helping to prepare additional money worth Rp2 billion for the legal aid of the Directorate General of Population and Civil Registration (Dukcapil) and the other needs in the e-KTP project," he added.
Anang, Setya Novanto, Andi Narogong, Irman, Sugiharto and the other suspects have derived benefits for themselves, certain groups and companies from the project worth Rp5.9 trillion.
KPK charges Anang with a violation of Article 2 paragraph (1) or Article 3 Law No.31/1999 that’s been amended to Law No.20/2001 on Corruption Eradication jo Article 55 paragraph (1) point 1 of the Criminal Code (KUHP). (dtc/rm)
