The House of Representatives speaker previously missed a KPK summons. He reportedly suffered a number of health issues.

"We will review the health condition. We then will decide the next move ," KPK spokesperson Febria Diansyah said.

"We can request the Indonesian Doctors Association's opinions. We also can take other measures," he added.

The Golkar Party chairman was named the fourth suspect in the e-KTP case last July. He was accused of abuse of power.

The influential lawmaker filed a pre-trial lawsuit against the suspect status earlier this month. He denied any involvement in the high-profile case.
