KPK Asks PPATK to Trace Source of Supreme Court Secretary's Money

Jakarta. The national antigraft agency has requested the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center, or PPATK, to trace the source of the money that was seized from Supreme Court secretary general Nurhadi Abdurachman, who has allegedly been implicated in corruption at the Central Jakarta District Court.

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) confiscated Rp 1.7 billion ($125,800) from the home of Nurhadi late last month, when it named Central Jakarta District Court clerk Edy Nasution a suspect for receiving over Rp 50 million in kickbacks from a middleman named Dody Supeno in connection with a case review.

"Regarding the case, there has been a request from the KPK, and we have accepted it," PPATK chairman Muhammad Yusuf Ali said on Saturday (28/05), as quoted by Tempo.co. "We are still working on it."

However, Nurhadi, who was issued with a six-month travel ban, has dismissed allegations that he was involved in corruption.

He was questioned by the KPK earlier this week after failing to show up for interrogation days before. He has maintained his innocence before an ethics panel that was convened by the Supreme Court to investigate his alleged involvement in graft.
