I am ready for whatever KPK will do."
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) will on Friday question former youth and sports minister Andi Alfian Malarangeng as a witness in the graft-ridden Hambalang sports complex construction case.

"Tomorrow (Friday), Andi will be questioned as a witness for suspect DK," KPK spokesman Johan Budi said here on Thursday.

KPK will also summon TBM as a suspect in the graft case, he said.

Although KPK named Andi a suspect in the corruption case related to the construction of the sports complex in Hambalang valley, West Java, on December 7 last year, it has not detained him.

Johan said the availability of data from the State Audit Board (BPK) on the amount of state losses arising from the graft case will help KPK speed up its probe into the Hambalang case.

"The sooner (the data are available), the sooner (the suspect) will be detained," he said.

The anti-graft body for the first time questioned Andi as a suspect in the graft case on April 9 this year.

"I am ready for whatever KPK will do," Andi said when asked if KPK would detain him as a suspect.

KPK also has named former chief of the planning bureau at the youth and sports ministry Deddy Kusdinar and operations director of state construction company PT Adhi Karya (persero) Teuku Bagus Mukhamad Noor suspects in the graft case.
