Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) said it did not rule out Anas Urbaningrum, former general chairman of the ruling Democratic Party being charged with money laundering.

"Until today not yet, but the possibility is there for any corruption suspect including Anas," KPK spokesman Johan Budi said here on Tuesday.

Johan Budi said currently KPK is studying the charges against Anas and trying to trace his assets.

KPK, however, has not blocked Anas` bank account, he said.

Anas has been declared a suspect in the high profile graft case of Hambalang sport center, but Anas strongly denied the charge.

He said KPK had been under pressure of a big power to name him a corruption suspect.

He resigned as the the general chairman of the ruling party a day after he was named a suspect.

Johan said KPK has sent a letter to the Financial Transaction Analysis and Reporting Center to investigate if there is a suspicious flow of fund into Anas` bank account.

So far Anas has not been investigated as a suspect. He had been questioned twice as witness in the case with others as suspects.

Anas was chairman of the faction of the ruling party in the House of Representatives before he was elected general chairman of the party in 2010.(*)
