Speaker named in theft probe

World | Nov 17, 2017
Indonesia's anti-graft commission says it will declare the speaker of parliament a fugitive if he does not turn himself in after being accused of involvement in the theft of US$170 million (HK$1.32 billion) in public funds.

TV reported that Corruption Eradication Commission officials and police went to Setya Novanto's home in a failed bid to arrest him and were met instead by his wife and lawyer.

Police allege that a network of about 80 people and companies used an electronic identity card system to steal the funds.
