Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Attorney Generals Office (AGO) has questioned five employees of the state-run television station (TVRI) as witnesses in an alleged case of corruption.

The case is related to the procurement of TVRI broadcasting program which led to state losses of Rp47 billion.

"Five witnesses were questioned by investigators," Head of the AGOs Information Center Tony Tribagus Spontana confirmed here on Wednesday.

The five witnesses are Riyanto Budi Rahardjo, Donny Putra, S. L. Tobing, Tri Suharnoko, and Edwin Rinaldy, the AGO spokesman said.

Spontana further noted that the questions asked were based on the chronology of the processes in the selection of the third-party for the procurement of the broadcasting program for 2012, in which eight companies won 15 packages of the program.

The AGO named three suspects in the case---comedian M, the president director of PT Viandra Productions; IC, the president director of PT Media Arts Image; and Y, the civil servant who made the commitment.(*)
