KOMPAS.com / KRISTIANTO PURNOMOIndonesia?s Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Firli Bahuri speaks during a press conference after a top Indonesian lawmaker Azis Syamsuddin (in orange vest) has been named as a suspect in a bribery case on Saturday, September 25.

“AZ only paid 3.1 billion rupiahs ($217,000) out of four billion rupiahs ($280,000) he has promised to SRP and MH,” Firli said.

Use of force during an arrest

The police used force during the arrest at Azis’ house on Friday night, September 24. The deputy speaker was scheduled to be examined on Friday. However, he failed to show up as he was still undergoing self-isolation because he had interacted with a person who contracted the Covid-19.

KPK chairman said Azis was asked to undergo an antigen test and he had a negative test result for Covid-19. The KPK officials then immediately brought him to the KPK building for further investigation before he was finally detained.

Azis was charged under Article 5, paragraph (1) letter a or Article 5 paragraph (1) letter a or b or Article 13 of the Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 31/1999 on the Eradication of Criminal Act of Corruption.
