Metrotvnews.com, Surabaya: The East Java Prosecutors Office has named former state-owned enterprises minister Dahlan Iskan a suspect over alleged corruption in the sale of assets from PT Panca Wira Usaha.

PT Panca Wira Usaha is owned by the East Java administration. Dahlan was the president director from 1999 to 2009. The case occurred from 2002 to 2004.

Dahlan was detained on Thursday (10/27) evening. He will be detained for at least twenty days.

"I am not surprised," Dahlan told reporters before officials brought him to prison.

"As you know, I am targeted by people in power," he continued.

The East Java Prosecutors Office's intelligence assistant Edy Birton said his agency has enough evidence to name Dahlan a suspect.

"He admitted that he signed the asset sales," Edy stated.
