Indonesia’s Home Affairs Minister Tjahjo Kumolo was questioned by the country’s anti-corruption agency on Friday as a witness in a bribery case linked to Lippo Group’s Meikarta township project near Jakarta.
Kumolo was asked about statements made by Neneng Hassanah Yasin, an elected official in charge of the area where the project is located, who’s a suspect in the case. Yasin said during a trial there had been some communications between her and the minister, agency spokesman Febri Diansyah said by text message.
Calls to Kumolo’s office outside office hours on Saturday for comment were unanswered.
