KPK investigation was prompted by a report from United Kingdom's Serious Fraud Office. The office stated that they discovered allegations of bribery and corruption involving senior Rolls-Royce aerospace employees in transactions with Indonesian businessmen and officials in several occasions from July 2011 to March 2012.
