The Attorney General Office (AGO) is expected to examine the former Speaker of the House of Representatives (DPR) Setya Novanto anytime soon. Novanto, one of the key leaders of Aburizal “Ical” Bakrie’s Golkar, met with the CEO of Freeport Indonesia Maroef Sjamsoeddin and businessman Mohammad Reza Chalid late last year and allegedly attempted to ask for Freeport’s to-be-divested shares in exchange for providing political favors. As required by the law, the AGO have asked for the permission of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to examine Novanto.To subscribe please click here
