Indonesia: Former supreme court secretary charged with bribery in connection to court cases


The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has named former Supreme Court secretary Nurhadi Abdurachman and two other people suspects of bribery in connection with three cases handled at the country’s highest court between 2011 and 2016.

The other suspects are Nurhadi’s son-in-law Rezki Herbiyono and PT Multicon Indrajaya Terminal (MIT) director Hiendra Soenjoto, KPK deputy chairman Saut Situmorang said.

The KPK accuses Nurhadi of accepting bribes in connection with three cases lodged with the Supreme Court, including a civil case filed by PT MIT against PT Kawasan Berikat Nusantara, a share dispute within PT MIT as well as a cassation and case review pertaining to a land dispute.

“NHD [Nurhadi] through RHE [Rezki] has received a promise in the form of nine checks from PT MIT as well as bribes totaling Rp 46 billion [US$3.2 million],” Saut said at the KPK building on Monday.

An investigation into the three suspects began on Friday. KPK investigators had previously conducted a raid on Nurhadi’s house and seized a number of documents and digital devises.

Nurhadi and Rezky are charged with graft as stipulated in Article 12 of the 2001 Corruption Law, while Hiendra is charged under Article 5 of the same law for allegedly paying bribes.

Previously, the former Supreme Court secretary had been accused of accepting bribes from Eddy Sindoro, a former executive of Indonesian business giant Lippo Group, in connection with the handling of a case review involving Lippo Group companies.

The Jakarta Corruption Court sentenced Eddy to four years of imprisonment and a Rp 200 million fine in March after finding him guilty of bribing former Central Jakarta District Court secretary Edy Nasution with Rp 877 million in cash. Edy himself was sentenced to eight years in prison.
