Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Yogyakarta Public Works Office was sealed by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) after it caught four people red-handed over corruption charges on Monday.

"As part of the efforts to safeguard the evidence, we put up a KPK line at the three locations we have sealed. Two of the locations are in Yogyakarta, including the Public Works Office. We also put up a KPK line at the house of a partner in Solo," KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah remarked in Jakarta on Tuesday.

The four caught red-handed by the KPK are the public prosecutor, two civil servants, and a private partner.

"The civil servants have been tasked with the procurement of the project," he stated.

In addition, the KPK seized cash worth Rp100 million after corroborating the truth behind the information from the public on the field.

"We followed up on the information from the public. We checked it on the field and found alleged transactions. We seized evidence, including cash worth around Rp100 million," he stated.

He remarked that the KPK will also conduct further investigation to check whether transactions had taken place before.

The transactions are allegedly linked to a project at the Yogyakarta Public Works Office. The project is under the supervision of the central and regional development supervisory team (TP4D) at the Yogyakarta Public Prosecutor's Office.

"We will study further whether it is the first receipt or whether several receipts were there before," he added. Related news: KPK arrests former Papua Highways Public Works head
