The chief executive of Indonesian state electricity utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has been named a suspect in a graft case related to a power project, the country’s Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) said on Tuesday.
The KPK suspects that the president director of PLN , Sofyan Basir, “accepted the promise” of a bribe, or assisted other suspects to receive bribes, related to a construction contract for a power plant in Riau, KPK deputy chief Saut Situmorang told a televised briefing.
Two politicians have been given jail sentences for their role in the case.
KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said the agency had evidence of repeated meetings between Basir and the other suspects and that under the criminal code a person could be made a suspect in a case for accepting the promise of a bribe.
