Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators questioned five witnesses on Tuesday in its investigation into huge state losses surrounding the Rp 6 trillion (US$455 million) national electronic identity (e-ID) card program in 2011 and 2012 during the tenure of president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
The five were brought in for questioning after the antigraft body collected testimonies from the only suspect in the case, Sugiharto, who was a Home Ministry official, during questioning on Monday at the KPK headquarters.
The witnesses are Harry Sapto Soepoyo, who was a commissioner of PT Sandipala Arthaputra, Benny, who serves as sales manager for PT Vektor Jaya Mekatrika, as well as Christian Atmadjaja, director of PT Virtus Technology Indonesia. The respective companies allegedly benefitted from the multitrillion rupiah project.
