REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- President Joko Widodo believed Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) have been professional in searching the house of State Electricity Company (PLN) president director Sofyan Basir in Central Jakarta on Sunday (July 15). He said it was KPK's authority.

"I'm sure KPK acts professionally," Jokowi said after attending public lecture at Nasdem Party's Academy of State Defense in Jakarta, on Monday.

Earlier, Vice President Jusuf Kalla said Sofyan as PLN president director has executed the tenders of PLN very tightly. He believed Sofyan has done his work as good as he can.

“PLN is really tight related to projects execution and I’m sure Sofyan has good experience so far to choose contractors,” said JK on Sunday night.

JK said the search was the KPK’s authority. However, he regretted the news about Sofyan house’s raid that came too early, before there was clarification.

Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators carried a suitcase after searching the house of State Electricity Company (PLN) president director Sofyan Basir in Bendungan Jatiluhur Street, Bendungan Hilir, Central Jakarta on Sunday (July 15).

According to KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah on Sunday, KPK investigators searched the house since Sunday morning in an alleged bribery case of Riau-1 coal-fired power plant construction project. PLN’s board of directors asserted that the company respects the search at Sofyan’s house that was part of legal process. However, it must uphold presumption of innocence principle.

“Sofyan as citizen will be obedient to law until there is a verification at the trial and he gets the legal binding decision," said PLN spokesman Made Suprateka.

According to Made, PLN management has not received any information about Sofyan’s status from KPK yet. However, it is expected that the search process at Sofyan’s house was done in accordance with the legal corridor that is valid and transparent.

In alleged bribery case in Riau-1-coal-fired power plant construction project, KPK has arrested Golkar Party lawmaker Eni Saragih along with another eight people, including an expert staff member, a driver, and a businessman.

The anti-graft institution named Eni a corruption suspect along with the person who allegedly offered the bribe, Johannes Budisutrisno Kotjo, one of the shareholders at energy firm BlackGold Natural Resources Limited. KPK also seized Rp 500 million as evidence.
