The national antigraft agency has extended the detention period for three graft suspects on bribery allegations involving a state defense procurement project at the Maritime Security Agency, or Bakamla, a spokesman said on Tuesday (03/01).
The Corruption Eradication Commission, or KPK, spokesman Febri Diansyah said the tree suspects in the case – Bakamla’s deputy head for legal affairs and cooperation Eko Susilo Hadi, along with two employees of Melati Technofo Indonesia, Hardy Stefanus and M. Adami Okta – will be detained for until Feb. 12.
The three were nabbed in a KPK sting operation on Dec. 12 with Rp 2 billion ($140,000) in cash in their possession.
The trio were allegedly involved in bribing officials to secure a satellite procurement project, worth Rp 200 billion, at Bakamla.
The agency’s data and information director Rear Adm. Bambang Udoyo was also named a suspect for his role in the incident.
A joint team of KPK officers and Military Police, or POM, also seized S$80,000 and $15,000 cash from Bambang’s residence.
