Merdeka.com – Attorney for the suspect in the alleged case corruption Mardani H. Maming, Denny Indrayana, admitted that he had not communicated with the former Regent of Tanah Bumbu for several days.
“When was the last time, it’s been a few days, I also have to check on my cellphone when was the last time (communication with Mardani),” said Denny Indrayana after a pretrial hearing at the District Court (PN) Jakarta South, Monday (25/7).
The legal team of Mardani H. Maming filed a pretrial to determine whether or not the KPK’s determination of the General Treasurer of the Nahdlatul Ulama Executive Board (PBNU) was a suspect in an alleged corruption case.
Eradication Commission Corruption (KPK) was unable to find Mardani H. Maming in an attempt to forcefully pick him up from an apartment in Jakarta, Monday. Mardani is a suspect in the alleged bribery case for mining business permits (IUP) in Tanah Bumbu Regency, South Kalimantan.
Denny said he didn’t know Mardani’s whereabouts. He also asked the KPK to be patient until the verdict of the pretrial hearing.
“We’re just asking for a two-day delay,” said Denny.
He is also optimistic that his client will win the pretrial hearing.
“We can win the (pretrial) verdict, there’s no need to examine it anyway. If we win, the suspect (status) will fall,” said Denny.
The pretrial hearing of the alleged bribery case of Mardani H. Maming will continue on Wednesday (27/7).
