    Jakarta: Social Affairs Minister Juliari Batubara surrendered to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Sunday morning after he was named suspect in a bribery case related to the covid-19 social assistance (Bansos) program.

    According to Metro TV, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) politician arrived at the KPK headquarters at around 02.50 Western Indonesia Time (WIB). He entered the building without giving any statement to the waiting reporters.

     



    Besides Juliari, KPK also declared two Social Affairs Ministry officials and two bribe givers as suspects in the corruption case. The minister allegedly received Rp17 billion from the vendors of procurement of goods and services in the covid-19 handling program.

    The other suspects are Matheus Joko Santoso (MJS), Adi Wahyuni (AW), Ardian I.M (AIM) and Harry Sidabuke (HS).

    "AIM and HS are food suppliers from PT RPI," said KPK Chairman Firli Bahuri in a press conference on Sunday morning.

    On Saturday, KPK arrested several officials of the Social Affairs Ministry in a sting operation. The anti-corruption agency disclosed the detailed information about the corruption case a day later.
