TEMPO.COJakarta – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) confiscated a plot of land along with a hotel building owned by the inactive governor of Papua, Lukas Enembe, who has been named a suspect in the bribery and money laundering cases. Ali Fikri, KPK’s spokesman, explained that the assets seized are a plot of land covering an area of 1,525 square meters on which a hotel is built in Jayapura, Papua. “The estimated value of these assets is around Rp40 billion,” Ali said in a written statement on Friday, April 14, 2023.

The confiscation was carried out following the case that ensnared the Democratic Party politician. On April 12, the anti-graft commission named Enembe a suspect in the crime of money laundering. KPK investigators previously declared Enembe as a suspect in the case of alleged bribery and gratuities for an infrastructure project in the country’s easternmost province. Apart from Enembe, the KPK also named PT Tabi Bangun Papua (TBP) Director Rijantono Lakka (RL) as a suspect for handing out bribes. Rijantono Lakka allegedly handed out a bribe of Rp1 billion to Lukas Enembe after his company was selected to work on three infrastructure projects in the province. The Papua Governor and a number of officials at the Provincial Government were also promised to get 14 percent of the profits from the projects after tax deductions.
