JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Chairman, Agus Rahardjo, has been reported once more to the police. The accuser has not been revealed to the public.

Agus has confirmed that there is report against him. "Yes, a man filed a report against KPK chairman," said Setyo Wasisto, Public Relations Chief, National Police, Tuesday (3/10).

However, Setyo said the report lacks enough evidence. The police has asked the person who filed the report to provide the required evidence as they don’t want to process complaints based on slanders.
"Everyone must understand this. The Police is now waiting for the person to return with the other required evidence," Setyo said.

The accusation against Agus is yet to be announced to the public and the anti-graft body’s chairman has not commented on the issue.

This is the second report filed to the police against Agus. Previously, members of the Nusantara (Indonesia) Islamic Netowrk (JIN) reported Agus to the Attorney General’s Office. They accused Agus of being involved in the electronic resident identity card (e-KTP) corruption, namely when he was Head of the Government Goods and Services Procurement Policy Institution (LKPP). "JIN members reported that Agus Rahardjo was involved in the e-KTP corruption, when he was head of LKPP. We can’t make any decision yet (whether to follow-up the report). We are still studying the report," said Attorney General M. Prasetyo. (dtc/mag)
