Jakarta: The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is planning to probe National Sports Committee (KONI) deputy chairman Russy as a witness in an alleged bribery case related to a grant from the Youth and Sports Ministry to KONI in the 2018 fiscal year.

There are currently five suspects in the case. They are Sports and Youth Ministry deputy Mulyana, Sports and Youth Ministry commitment making officer Adi Purnomo, Sports and Youth Ministry staff Eko Triyono, KONI secretary general Ending Fuad Hamidy and KONI treasurer Jhonny E Awuy.

KPK arrested the five suspects during a sting operation in mid-December. The anti-corruption watchdog summoned Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi as a witness last week.

"Russy will be a witness for suspect Ending," KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah told reporters on Monday.

According to KPK, Adi and Eko allegedly received Rp318 from Ending and Awuy. In the meantime, Mulyana allegedly receieved kickbacks multiple times.

In June 2018, Mulyana reportedly received Rp300 million and a luxurious car from the KONI officials. In September, he reportedly received a mobile phone from them.
