KPK freezes bank accounts belonging to Nazaruddin

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) says it has frozen some bank accounts belonging to graft fugitive M. Nazaruddin, because he is a suspect in an alleged bribery case linked to the construction of an athletes’ dormitory for the upcoming Southeast Asian Games in Palembang, South Sumatra.
“We froze several bank accounts [of Nazaruddin’s] a few days ago,” KPK spokesman Johan Budi said on Tuesday.
Johan did not mention the number of the accounts closed or how much money they contained.
According to him, besides Nazaruddin’s accounts, the KPK also froze accounts owned by other suspects implicated in the case, including Youth and Sports Affairs Ministry secretary Wafid Muharam, PT Anak Negeri marketing director Mindo Rosalina Manulang and PT Duta Graha Indah marketing manager Mohamad El Idris.
Johan said his commission was still tracking down the suspects’ assets.
He refused to confirm whether Nazaruddin had assets abroad.
“I can not mention details since our investigators are still working,” he said.
The KPK previously received a report from the Financial Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (PPATK) that showed dubious transactions connected to the case.
The PPATK said last week that it had identified 109 suspicious financial transactions made by Nazaruddin and his company.
