JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Corruption Eradication Commission, Friday (25/05/2012) re-scheduling examination of former members of Commission IV of the House of Representatives in the investigation of alleged corruption case procurement of Integrated Radio Communication System (SKRT) in the Ministry of Forestry 2007.
This time, the KPK summoned Ismail Tajudin and Hifnie Syarkawie as witnesses for the suspect case, Anggoro Widjojo. "The concerned person was summoned as a witness for AW (Anggoro Widjaja, red) suspect," said Head of Reporting and Information of KPK, Priharsa Nugraha, in Jakarta on Friday.
Ismail and Hifnie are considered to know about the corruption crime alleged to Anggoro, the owner of PT Masaro Radiokom who is a fugitive since 2009. PT Masaro Radiokom is a partner of the Ministry of Forestry in the procurement of 2007 SKRT whose project value reaches Rp 180 billion.
At that time, the Ministry of Forestry led by Minister of Forestry, MS Kaban. This SKRT project was actually discontinued in 2004 at the time of Menhut M Prakoso.
However, for Anggoro's efforts, the project was revived. Anggoro allegedly gave bribes to four members of Commission IV of the House who handled the forestry sector namely Azwar Chesputra, Al-Amin Nur Nasution, Hilman Indra, and Fachri Andi Leluas. Commission IV, led by Yusuf Erwin Faishal, issued a Letter of Recommendation to continue the SKRT project.
In the decree, it was mentioned that Commission IV of the House of Representatives requested the Ministry of Forestry to continue the SKRT project, and urged the Ministry of Forestry to use the tools provided by PT Masaro for procurement of goods in the project. Both Azwar, Al Amin, Hilman, Fachri, and Yusuf Erwin Faisal have been convicted through the Jakarta Corruption Court ruling. This case also ensnared Anggoro's brother Anggodo Widjojo.
Related to the investigation of this case, the KPK previously examined MS Kaban, and former members of Commission IV of other Parties, namely Mindo Sianipar, Azwar Chesputra, Mardjono, Soekotjo, Markum Singodimejo, and Hilman Indra.
