AUGUST 01, 2019

Jakarta. The national antigraft agency arrested Andra Y. Agussalam, finance director of state-run airport operator Angkasa Pura II, in a sting operation on Wednesday evening.

Basaria Pandjaitan, deputy chairwoman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), told reporters on Thursday that the agency also arrested four employees of another state-owned enterprise during the operation.

"The KPK team arrested five people, one serving on the board of directors of Angkasa Pura II, and others from state-owned enterprise PT Inti," Basaria said, referring to Industri Telekomunikasi Indonesia, which is engaged in telecommunications and information technology.

Basaria said Andra is suspected of having received bribes from Inti executives related to a project.

KPK investigators also seized about S$100,000 ($70,000) in cash as evidence.

The KPK has 24 hours to decide whether to charge those arrested in the operation.
