The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) conducted a Sting Operation last month and arrested several people including a Chairman of a political party. We eventually learned that the Chairman in question was Romahurmuziy, the chairman of United Development Party (PPP). The KPK announced the case on March 16, 2019 and Rommy was named suspect along with two others. What’s surprising from the arrest at the time was not only the fact that Rommy’s name was previously mentioned in the budget mafia case but also because the investigators raided the office of the Minister of Religious Affairs and secured a sum of money supposedly related to the case. The Ministry said they were willing to cooperate but Rommy refused to surrender. Rommy filed for a pre-trial lawsuit and the first hearing of the trial was scheduled to be held on April 22, 2019. The KPK said they’re not ready came the day of the pre-trial so the hearing was postponed for two weeks.
