REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Regent of Tulungagung Syahri Mulyo surrendered to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Saturday night. He appeared at around 21.30 pm, KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said.

"He is currently in the examination chamber," Febri said in Jakarta on Saturday (June 9) night.

Febri said the anti-graft body appreciated Syahri for surrender. Being cooperative to the legal process would be better to the suspect and the case handling.

"KPK leader Saut Situmorang is also at the office to ensure the examination proceed to the next stage," Febri said.

Syahri along with Blitar Mayor Muh Samanhudi Anwar and four other people were determined as suspect by KPK in an alleged graft in goods and service procurement case. He ran away after being named suspect.

The Indonesian Democratic Party (PDIP) cadre then made a video statement claiming he was a victim of politics. Syahri who is the incumbent in Tulungagung regional election along with Marwoto Birowo also asked his supporter to vote for him on June 27.

Armed police officers guard in front of the Tulungagung district head's house Syahri Mulyo in Ngantru, Tulungagung, East Java, on Saturday (June 9). That day, the Corruption Eradication Commission searches the house to find additional evidences in Syahri's involvement on alleged corruption in road infrastructure projects.


Earlier, KPK said the four other suspects were already in detention including Susilo Prabowo, a businessman now in the Guntur military detention house. The other three - head of the district Public Works Service Sutrisno, businessmen Agung Prayitno and Bambang Purnomo were sent to the KPK detention house of Merah Putih.

Febri said in the Tulungagung case, Syahri Mulyo, Sutrisno, and Agung Prayitno were charged with receiving bribe and Susilo Prabowo is charged with giving the bribe. Susilo Prabowo is charged with bribing the regent of Tulungagung Rp1 billion via Agung Prayitno as "fee" for road infrastructure projects in that district area.

It was believed to be the third bribe given by Susilo. The Tulungagung regent was believed to have received Rp500 million and the second Rp1 billion.

Those charged with receiving bribe in the Blitar city case included Muh Samanhudi Anwar and Bambang Purnomo with Susilo Prabowo as the briber. Susilo Prabowo has won a number of contracts to build projects in Tulungagung since 2014, a KPK leader said.

Meanwhile, the Blitar city mayor has also received Rp1.5 billion in bribe from Susilo Prabowo via Bambang Purnomo for a Rp23 billion school building project in the city. The "fee" was believed to be part of 8 percent for the mayor with 2 percent for the city public works officials.

In the operation, KPK confiscated a set of evidence including Rp2.5 billion in cash and other baking documents. Susilo Prabowo, therefore, is charged with bribing in two cases.
