Anti Graft Agency Summons Two High Ranking Officials For Questioning

JAKARTA

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has summoned two high raking officials for questioning over tax fraud case.

Head of the Development Supervision of the Working Unit at the presidential office Kuntoro Mangkusubroto  and Taxation Director General Fuad Rahmany were to be questioned by the anti graft agency  in the tax fraud case involving PT The Master Steel.

“The two will be investigated  in the case with Diah Soembedi as the suspect,” head of the KPK’s reporting and information  department Priharsa Nugraha  said.

Kuntoro  and Fuad hingga failed to show up until 11.00 a.m. local time .

KPK already named five suspects in the case including Diah Soembedi , a director of  PT The Master Steel,  and two manager of the steel company Teddy Mulyawan  and Effendy Komala, and two tax officials of the taxation directorate general Eko Darmayanto  and  Mohammad Dian Irwan.

The case came to surface after the arrest of Eko Darmayanto  and  Mohammad Dian Irwan, who was charged with receiving S$300,000   or around Rp2.34 billion  from Teddy Mulyawan  and Effendy Komala in mid May at the Soekarno Hatta airport.

KPK confiscated S$125,000  from Eko  and S$130,000, US$75,000 and Rp700 million from  Eko.

Diah was arrested later when he came to KPK to report that his company was victim of extortion by the tax officials.

After being grilled by KPK,  Eko said he was ready to become “justice collaborator”  and would unveil another tax fraud case involving PT Genta Dunia Jaya Raya, which he said had link with Taxation Director General Fuad Rahmany.

Fuad, however, denied the allegation saying he knew nothing about tax case involving PT Genta.
