JAKARTA - President Director of Wijaya Karya (Persero) Agung Budi Waskito was summoned by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators, Thursday, January 14.

The boss of Wika will be examined as a witness in the case of alleged corruption in the construction project of the Waterfront City Bridge or Bangkinang Bridge, Kampar Regency, Riau for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

"The person concerned was summoned as a witness for the suspect IKS (I Ketut Suarbawa, Manager of Operations Division I of PT Wijaya Karya)," said Acting KPK spokesman Ali Fikri in Jakarta, Thursday, January 14.

The KPK suspects Agung Budi Waskito is aware of this case. This is because someone who is questioned as a witness is considered to know, see or hear the case.

It's just that Ali can't elaborate on this. Because, this has been included in the investigation material.

Apart from Agung Budi Waskito, the KPK also summoned PT Wijaya Karya employees Ade Wahyu. He will also be examined as a witness for suspect I Ketut Suarbawa. "He is also a witness," said Ali.

In this case the KPK named two suspects, namely Adnan and Ketut Suarbawa in the alleged corruption case of the construction project of the Waterfront City Bridge or Bangkinang Bridge, Kampar Regency, Riau for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

Adnan and Ketut Suarbawa allegedly colluded in the Waterfront City Bridge project or the Bangkinang Bridge in Kampar Regency in 2015-2016 which cost Rp. 117.68 billion.

The KPK suspects that there has been cooperation between Adnan and I Ketut Suarbawa regarding the estimated price for the implementation of the multi-year Waterfront City Bridge construction, which is funded by the 2015 APBD, the 2015 Revised APBD and the 2016 APBD. As a result of this conspiracy, state finances suffered losses estimated at more than Rp. 50 billion.

"It is suspected that in this project there has been a financial loss of at least around Rp. 50 billion from the value of the multi-year Waterfront city bridge construction project in the 2015 and 2016 fiscal years with a total contract value of Rp. 117.68 billion," said Lili.
