He further revealed that, “This case stems from the planning of 4 packages of ipdn campus building work by the Ministry of Home Affairs, including the IPDN Gowa Campus building with a contract value of Rp125 billion. Suspect AW allegedly made arrangements for potential auction winners in the project. Among them, AW allegedly asked other contractors to bid above the project value of PT WK and compile other contractor documents in such a way that it did not meet the requirements and later make it easier for PT WK to be won in the project, “he said.
“Suspect AW is also suspected of falsifying work progress up to 100% so that payments can be made in full. While the fact in the field of job progress only reached 70% and the inclusion of changes in the amount of lighter fines in employment contracts. In addition, AW also allegedly approved the provision of some money and goods to ppk and other parties in the Ministry of Home Affairs, “he added.

“The KPK further made a forced effort to detain Suspect AW for the first 20 days starting from January 11 to 30, 2022 in Rutan KPK in Pomdam Jaya Guntur, of course, before conducting further examinations to the concerned, we conducted self-isolation for 14 days to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the KPK’s Rutan neighborhood in the meantime,” concluded Nur Gufron.
Kpk regrets that there are still criminal acts of corruption in the procurement of goods and services involving various parties. Malicious agreements in the process have hurt business practices that should uphold the principles of a clean, honest, and corruption-free business. Corruption in this development project in addition to causing large financial losses of the State also produces quality goods and services and undue durability.
Kpk again invites all elements of society, both government and business actors to instill strong awareness to stay away from corrupt practices in carrying out every task and responsibility it carries out. Only with strong commitment and joint efforts, we can certainly make Indonesia a developed, prosperous, prosperous, and free from corruption.
