KPK Probes Former Papua Governor’s Alleged Money Flow to Crime Groups

    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators are currently looking into the alleged money flowing from inactive Papua governor Lukas Enembe to armed criminal groups (KKB) in the region. 

    “This will surely be looked into in the investigation. Based on the evidence and witness testimony, we will study the possible link between [the governor] and the [criminal groups] that oppose the government,” said KPK deputy Alexander Marwata on Tuesday, January 17, Antaranews reported. 

    According to the watchdog’s deputy, KPK had coordinated with the regional development bank (BPD) of Papua for the investigation. “All of the Papua provincial government money flows through BPD Papua,” he added. 

    Furthermore, Alex also stressed that the investigation would not stop at graft cases. The KPK’s investigation will continue to develop, especially on matters related to government fiscal responsibility.

    Lukas Enembe, Tuesday, was officially examined as a witness for the suspect Rijatono Lakka (RL) in the alleged bribery and gratuity case for an infrastructure project in Papua Province. Enembe is believed to have received up to Rp10 billion in bribes. 

    After being examined, Lukas Enembe was taken to the Gatot Soebroto Army Central Hospital (RSPAD) in Jakarta for consultation and outpatient care.
