KPK Affirms That The Detention Of MA Secretary Hasbi Hasan Is Just A Matter Of Time

JAKARTA - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has confirmed that Secretary of the Supreme Court (MA) Hasbi Hasan will be detained. The forced effort is just a matter of time because it is part of the strategy.

"(Hasbi's detention, ed) is only a matter of time. It's part of technicality and strategy. It's just a matter of time," said KPK Deputy Chair Nurul Ghufron to reporters, Tuesday, June 6 evening.

Ghufron explained that Hasbi's detention was needed to investigate the alleged bribery in handling the case in the Supreme Court. He will definitely be dragged to the court to account for his actions.

"That's part of the process that the KPK is currently carrying out," he said.

As previously reported, Hasbi Hasan allegedly received money from Dadan Tri Yudianto. He is suspected of pocketing part of the Rp11.2 billion received by the former Independent Commissioner of PT Wika Beton.

The money was called by the anti-corruption commission as a fee for cassation management with the defendant Budiman Gandi Suparman in the Supreme Court. The giving was made after Dadan asked Hasbi to help secure the KSP Inti Dana case.

"Some of the money was allegedly given by the suspect DTY (Dadan Tri Yudianto) to HH (Hasbi Hasan) around March 2022," said Deputy Chair Nurul Ghufron at a press conference at the KPK's Red and White Building, Kuningan Persada, South Jakarta, Tuesday, June 6.
