"We could study the Hajj fund management," KPK prevention deputy Pahala Nainggolan told on Friday.

"We could aproach the Religion Affairs Ministry," he added.

The Hajj Fund Management Agency (BPKH) leaders were appointed by the House of Reprentatives earlier this year. They were inaugurated by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo last month.

According to the law, Hajj funds could be used for infrastructure projects. Hajj funds should be managed according to Islamic financial principles.

"The amount is around Rp95 trillion. It is very big," he stated.
