KPK arrests Tegal mayor Siti Masitha

KONTAN.CO.ID - Investigators from the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested on Tuesday Siti Masitha Soeparno, the mayor of Tegal in Cental Java on allegation of corruption.

KPK chairman Agus Rahardjo has confirmed about the anti-graft body's operation in Central Java, but he declined to give details regarding the arrest.

"The arrest took place in Central Java. Let's wait [for the details to be revealed in] a press conference," Agus said on Tuesday evening, as quoted by kompas.com.

Siti was believed to be arrested while chairing a meeting at the city hall of Tegal.

KPK is planning to announce her arrest on Wednesday.

Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo also confirmed that Siti had been apprehended by the KPK on Thursday.

"I have given warnings that their places are not beyond reach. They are constantly monitored," Ganjar said as quoted by tempo.co.

Siti is not the first mayor of Tegal to face an investigation by the anti-graft body. Her predecessor, Ikmal Jaya was sent to prison in 2015 for corruption surrounding a botched land procurement case.
