Indonesia: High-ranking officials named in Supreme Court bribery trial

The names of several current and former top officials were mentioned during the hearing of a bribery case against former Supreme Court secretary Nurhadi and his son-in-law, Rezky Herbiyono.

Hengky Soenjoto, one of the witnesses, mentioned two high-ranking former police officials, namely former Jakarta Police chief Comr. Gen. Mochamad Iriawan and former National Police deputy chief and current State Intelligence Agency chief Gen. Budi Gunawan, in his testimony during a hearing at the Jakarta Corruption Court on Wednesday.

Hengky is the elder brother of Hiendra Soenjoto, who has been named a graft suspect by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in the same bribery case. Hiendra, the director of PT Multicon Indrajaya Terminal (MIT), who was captured only late last month after eight months on the run, allegedly paid Rp 45.7 billion (US$3.25 million) to Nurhadi in an attempt to gain favor in a dispute between MIT and another company.
