This summons was the fourth time he had checked as a suspect.

However, Ade Safri could not confirm whether the person concerned would meet the examination as a suspect. Ade Safri said only that the examination of Firli Bahuri on Friday was an attempt to fulfill prosecutors' instructions in an incomplete case file. This is considering that earlier the High Prosecutor (Kejati) of DKI Jakarta returned Firli Bahuri's case file to the investigator for completion.

“To be asked for additional information and this as part of the fulfillment of the P19 directive material from the JPU at the Kejati DKI Jakarta office,” Ade Safri said.

Firli Could Be Ensnared by TPPU Article The joint team of Metro Jaya Police and Bareskrim Polri still continues to carry out depreciation against property or assets belonging to the inactive Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Firli Bahuri that were not reported in the State Officials Property Report (LHKPN). The investigation team will apply the Taxation Offences and Money Laundering Offences (TPPU) sections to the hidden assets.

“Alleged money laundering offences will be the next target of investigators in connection with the follow-up of the investigation of corruption offences that have taken place,” Ade Safri said.

According to Ade Safri, these unseen or unreported assets are scattered in various regions. Starting from in Jakarta, Bekasi, Sukabumi, in Sleman Regency and Klaten Regency Yogyakarta. But Ade Safri did not detail the total value of the wealth or hidden assets belonging to Firli Bahuri. He said only that the discovery of the hidden assets became material that would be investigated by a joint team of investigators.

“This is an investigative material that is currently being investigated by investigators. Because it is related to the acquisition it is in the same time range of the period of time the alleged corruption offences took place. Including investigators' plans to conduct investigations related to TPPU,” Ade Safri said.
