Timeline of the seizure of three mobile phones from Hasto Kristiyanto by the Corruption Eradication Committee in connection with the Harun Masiku case

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) seized three mobile phones belonging to the Secretary General of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (Sekjen PDIP), Hasto Kristiyanto, during an inspection on Monday, June 10. The three mobile phones were seized by investigators Commission for the Eradication of Corruption Deputy Chief Rossa Purbo Bekti of Hasto's assistant, Kusnadi.

Reporting from Tempo magazine in this week's edition, the seizure started when Rossa asked about the whereabouts of Hasto's cell phone during an investigation regarding Harun Masiku that took place in room 37 on the second floor of the KPK building. Hasto said he did not take the cell phone with him because he had entrusted it to Kusnadi and his lawyer, Ronny Talapessy, who were waiting in the front lobby.

Knowing this, Rossa left Hasto and approached Kusnadi who was smoking. Rossa, who was wearing a white shirt and a black mask, asked Kusnadi to follow her under the pretext of being called Hasto. Without telling Ronny, Kusnadi went to the second floor. On the second floor, Rossa immediately welcomed Kusnadi. “This is the one you were looking for,” Kusnadi told Tempo, imitating Rossa's words.

Kusnadi admitted that Rossa asked him to hand over Hasto's mobile phone, which was in his bag. Not only Rossa, other investigators also searched Kusnadi's bag. In addition to confiscating his mobile phone, investigators also confiscated Hasto's savings account, bank card and black book. Investigators did not seize Rp 130 million in cash.

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has reopened the case of Harun Masiku, a PDI-P politician suspected of bribing the commissioner of the General Election Commission (KPU) to allow him to join the council through an interim replacement DPR. mechanism. Harun Masiku disappeared. The KPK accused Hasto Kristiyanto of concealing this.

In 2020, the Corruption Eradication Commission plans to arrest Hasto Kristiyanto, who is located at the Police Science College (PTIK) complex in South Jakarta. However, at that time the PDIP was still the ruling party. Instead of being able to drag Hasto away, the KPK investigators were interrogated by a number of police officers.

Since then, the hunt for the suddenly disappeared Harun Masiku has begun to fade. Hasto Kristiyanto was also never questioned. The 2024 elections will change the political map. President Joko Widodo, who became KPK boss after the revision of the KPK law amputated the institution's independence in 2019, crossed paths with the PDIP in the presidential elections. The Committee for the Eradication of Corruption (KPK) has also opened an investigation into Hasto Kristiyanto.
