Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The House of Representatives Speaker Setya Novanto gave testimony as a witness in the electronic id-card (e-KTP) corruption's trial in the Anti-Corruption Court in Kuningan, South Jakarta on Friday, November 3, 2017.

The Golkar Party chairman explained about the deliberation of the e-KTP project budget in the parliament. The senior lawmaker served as the leader of the Golkar Party Faction at the time.

"Faction leaders just followed regulations. We only gave feedbacks," Novanto said.

The Corruption Eradication Commision (KPK) named Novanto as a suspect in the e-KTP corruption case in July 2017. However, the South Jakarta District Court annulled Novanto's suspect status in September 2017.

"I knew the case from media. I was unaware with the case before," Novanto added.
