The KPK confirmed that Budiyanto had purchased church materials that did not meet specifications.
Quoting news.detik.com, Acting KPK Spokesperson Ali Fikri said information was also dug up on a witness from a staff of PT Master Steel, Jessi, on Thursday (17/3/2022). The witness was also investigated regarding the flow of money to the parties related to the case.
“Witnesses were present and confirmed, among other things, the process of purchasing materials used in the church construction project of the Kingmi Mile 32 Church which was allegedly not in accordance with the specified specifications, along with the alleged flow of a sum of money for parties related to this case,” Ali said, Friday (18/3).
As known, the KPK is currently investigating allegations of corruption in the church construction project in Mimika Regency, Papua. The KPK is currently collecting a number of evidences and examining a number of witnesses.
“It is true that the KPK is currently investigating allegations of corruption related to the Kingmi Mile 32 Church construction project phase 1 FY 2015 in Mimika Regency, Papua Province,” said Acting KPK spokesman Ali Fikri.
Ali said that the KPK would scrutinize a number of witnesses to collect evidence. “The KPK investigation team is currently still collecting evidence, including examining witnesses,” he said. Previously, the KPK had investigated 8 witnesses related to the alleged corruption case in the construction of the church in Mimika.
Suspects Have Not Been Detained So far, the KPK has not detained the suspects in the alleged corruption case in the construction of the Kingmi Mile 32 Church building on Jalan Agimuga, Kuala Kencana District, Mimika Regency, Papua Province.
