Jakarta, IDN Times – Deputy Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), Alexander Marwata, revealed that he received information about the alleged sharing of plots on the land of the National Capital City (IKN) of the Archipelago, East Kalimantan. He got the news from an informant.
“It turns out that IKN land is not all clean and clearing. From our informants, there are already lots of plots divided. The President has also asked the KPK to escort IKN,” said Alex in a written statement quoted on Friday (11/3/2022).
1. KPK investigates allegations for IKN Nusantara plots by AGM Regent
In January 2022, the Regent of North Penajam Paser, Abdul Gafur Masud (AGM), who became the regional head in the area projected as IKN, was ensnared by the KPK OTT. Alex said that his party would investigate the alleged involvement of AGM in the distribution of the plots.
“Of course, if there is information like that, investigators will investigate it later, to anyone. But I just found out that information, it’s just a rumor. The truth must be sought like that,” he explained.
