The antigraft body has also named Atut a suspect in a case concerning the procurement of medical equipment in Banten.

Agung gave his assuarances that Golkar would not intervene in the legal process surrounding the case as long as it was not politicized.

“We trust that the KPK will be professional and not use the existing situation for its own purposes,” said Agung.

He added that Golkar would be offering Atut legal assistance and said that she remained a member of the party.

“Atut will not be thrown out of the party, but she will be dismissed as one of the party’s officials if she is found guilty. First, though, we have to respect the principle of the presumption of innocence,” he said. (The Jakarta Post)
