The Golkar politician then left the palace with a 1372 RFO Black Pajero B car, not a 30th RI Social Minister car.
Then the media lecture asked Ali Mochtar Ngabalin about the issue of Idrus & # 39; dismissal. But Ngabalin did not give a good answer either.
Idrus had been questioned several times by the KPK as a witness in connection with the case of a cooperation contract for the construction of PLTU Riau-1 in the province of Riau on Wednesday (15/08/2018).
In this case, the KPK Deputy Commission VII of the House of Representatives Eni Maulani appointed Saragih as a bribery suspect. Eni was arrested when he was in Idrus Marham's house.
The politician of Golkar reportedly bribed Rp. 500 million, which was part of a commitment of 2.5 percent for the value of the Riau-1 PLTU building project.
The remuneration was given by Johannes Budisutrisno Kotjo, a shareholder of Blackgold Natural Resources Limited.
Reportedly, bribes were given so that the process of signing the cooperation in connection with the construction of the Riau-1 PLTU went smoothly.
