On April 24, 2017, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) named a suspect in the Bank Indonesia Liquidity Assistance (BLBI) graft case. The suspect is the former Chairman of the Indonesia’s Bank Restructuring Agency (BPPN) Syafruddin Arsyad “Syaf” Temenggung, who is also a suspect of another graft case implicating PT Victoria Securities International.
