Jakarta, IO – The Attorney General’s Office (Kejagung) has detained Surya Darmadi, the suspect in the alleged Rp78 trillion corruption case.

AGO spokesperson Ketut Sumedana said that Surya was picked up by the investigation team at Soekarno Hatta Airport, Tangerang, Banten, reported detik on Monday (15/8).

“The suspect SD departed from Taiwan at 09.36 local time and arrived in Indonesia at 13.13 WIB aboard China Airlines CI761,” said Ketut.
