The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has named NasDem politician Andi Irfan Jaya a new suspect in a bribery case implicating prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari and detained him at the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) detention facility as part of coordination between the two legal forces.
Andi was named a suspect on Tuesday for allegedly being the middleman in Pinangki’s case. The AGO named Pinangki a suspect in a bribery case as she was accused of receiving a US$500,000 bribe from graft convict Djoko Soegiarto Tjandra.
“We are detaining the suspect today at the KPK’s detention center. This is a form of our coordination,” AGO spokesperson Hari Setiyono told reporters Wednesday, as quoted by kompas.com.
