The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) apprehended a lawmaker and a high-ranking official of state fertilizer holding company PT Pupuk Indonesia during an operation in Jakarta that took place Wednesday night to the early hours of Thursday.
KPK deputy chairwoman Basaria Panjaitan confirmed the arrests, saying they took place after investigators obtained information about an illicit transaction through an intermediary.
“There were several people arrested during the operation, consisting of a member of PT Pupuk Indonesia’s board of directors and businesspeople. We allege the transaction was related to the distribution of fertilizer by ships,” Basaria said in a statement on Thursday.
