Jakarta (ANTARA News) - High profile corruption suspect Neneng Sri Wahyuni, who has been on the international police wanted list, has been arrested.

The wife of Muhammad Nazaruddin, the former treasurer of the ruling Democrat Party who was jailed for corruption, was arrested on Wednesday at her home in Pejaten, South Jakarta, upon her arrival from hiding abroad.

"That is right. (She was arrested) at her home in Pejaten," Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Johan Budi said.

Neneng has been wanted since August 20, 2011 and had been named as a suspect in a corruption case involving the solar power project (PLTS) of the ministry of manpower and transmigration. She and her husband Nazaruddin are alleged to have received Rp2.2 billion from the project.

KPK had earlier said that authorities had known her whereabouts, but could not arrest here pending Interpol`s action because she was living abroad.
