Moreover, the KPK Council is currently investigating the alleged violations committed by Lili. He was suspected of violating ethics after receiving accommodation and tickets for the Mandalika MotoGP.

"It will be handed over to the KPK Council. We must not precede the Council", he stressed to reporters at the KPK ACLC Building, Rasuna Said, South Jakarta, Monday, July 11.

Lili was again reported to the KPK Council for allegedly receiving hotel accommodation facilities and tickets to watch the 2022 MotoGP race at the Mandalika International Circuit, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), from PT Pertamina (Persero).

In dealing with the alleged receipt, the KPK Supervisory Board has collected materials and information from related parties, including the state-owned company. President Director of PT Pertamina (Persero) Nicke Widyawati has also been examined some time ago and provided additional information in writing.

Not only that, but the KPK Council has also asked related parties to bring proof of booking accommodation at Amber Lombok Beach Resort and Mandalika MotoGP tickets at the Grandstand Premium Zone A-Red.
