20 April 2012. The Jakarta Anti-Corruption Court on Friday jailed high-profile graft suspect Muhammad Nazaruddin for four years and 10 months for graft surrounding a 2011 Southeast Asian Games (SEA) development project.
The former Democratic Party treasurer and lawmaker was also fined $21,800.
He was found guilty of receiving $501,400 in bribes from Mohammad El Idris, the marketing manager of Duta Graha Indah, to award the company with the construction project of an athletes’ village for the SEA Games in Palembang, South Sumatra.
His trial has brought to light alleged corruption of several other Democratic Party politicians, including former deputy secretary-general Angelina Sondakh and chairman Anas Urbaningrum.
