The suspect detained tonight, Thursday (7/12/2023) is Helmut Hermawan.

The Corruption Eradication Committee (KPK) also officially announced Eddy Hiariej as a suspect in this case. Apart from Eddy, the KPK also named 3 people as suspects, namely two of his personal assistants named Yogi Arie Rukmana, and Yosi Andila Mulyadi; and Director of PT Citra Lampia Mandiri Helmut Hermawan.

Eddy was actually summoned today to be questioned as a suspect, but he did not come due to illness. The Corruption Eradication Commission will reschedule Eddy’s summons.


“After collecting evidence, the KPK named 4 people as suspects, namely EOSH Deputy Minister of Law and Human Rights, YAR, YAM and HH,” said Deputy Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Committee, Alexander Marwata, in a press conference at his office, Jakarta, Thursday (7/12/2023).

In this case, the KPK suspects that Eddy, through two of his assistants, received billions of Rupiah in bribes from Helmut. The money was allegedly given by Helmut so that Eddy helped legalize the legal entity PT Citra Lampia at the Directorate General of General Legal Administration at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.

Apart from that, the money was also allegedly given because Eddy promised to provide assistance to Helmut regarding the case that ensnared him at the National Police Criminal Investigation Unit.
