Police grills two KPK investigators

Two Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) answer police summons on Wednesday in relation to a criminal case, in which two KPK deputies have been implicated. KPK legal bureau head Khaidir Ramli told reporters that investigators Wisnu Baroto and Roni Santana have arrived at the National Police Headquarters in South Jakarta. KPK deputies Chandra M Hamzah and Bibit Samad Riyanto were naems suspects two weeks ago for an alleged abuse of power in issuing bans on corruption suspects Anggoro Widodo and Djoko S Chandra (who are now at large) and for lifting the travel ban on Joko. The police subsequently accused them of having received bribes from Anggoro to halt investigations into corruption cases implicating Anggoro's company, PT Masaro Radiokom. The police are summoning two other KPK deputies – Haryono Umar and M Jasin – on Thursday and two more investigators. Six national commission have criticized the police for criminalizing the KPK deputies, saying the action had indications of legal uncertainty and was a violation of human rights.
