JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) has submitted its report on transactions made by Setya Novanto to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), but the agency refused to provide any details on the public.

"The report was actually submitted quite some time ago. It revealed potential violations against the law and criminal actions," said Kiagus Ahmad Badaruddin, Director of PPATK, Tuesday (19/12).

Ahmad did not deny that KPK may indict Setya Novanto on money laundering charges.

Meanwhile, in its indictment against the former House of Representatives chairman, KPK mentioned Setya Novanto’s wife and daughter Deisti Astriani Tagor and Rheza Herwindo, respectively, who the anti-graft body claims are shareholders in the holding company of PT Murakabi Sejahtera, a member of the consortium that participated in the e-KTP (electronic resident identity card) project.

"KPK must prove that they are aware of and participated in the embezzlement," Ahmad said. (dtc/mfb)
