United Kingdom: KPK to help UK’s anti-graft agency in probe into Bombardier-Garuda graft case

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is set to help the United Kingdom’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) probe corruption allegedly committed by Canada-based airplane manufacturer Bombardier Inc. in a deal with national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

The agency had long forged collaborations with foreign legal authorities through agent to agent or mutual legal assistance (MLA) schemes, KPK spokesman Ali Fikri said.

The KPK also collaborated with law enforcement authorities of other countries regarding the Garuda Indonesia aircraft engine procurement case, including Singapore’s Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB). “We’ve been exchanging data and information with the SFO and we will continue the collaboration. The KPK will help the SFO in investigating the Garuda graft case,” Ali said in a statement on Saturday.
