Rini was suspected of receiving luxurious furniture from the Director of Pelindo II, Richard Joost Lino.

"One unit of three seater sofa at Rp35 million, two units of single seat sofa at Rp25 million, one sofa table at Rp10 million, six dining chairs Rp3.5 million. One dining table Rp25 million, and a set office equipments at Rp59 million. The total is Rp200 million," said Masinton at the KPK Building, Jalan HR Rasuna Said, South Jakarta, Tuesday (9/22/2015).

Masinton admitted of receiving the procurement document from the public on March 16. "Which is why we handed over to KPK," explained the member of Commission III of the People's Representative Council (DPR).

Masinton deliberated that Lino had ordered his general manager assistant to conduct the procurement. "This is a copied letter, which is why I ask KPK to clarify," said Masinton as showing the document.

He was reluctant to guess Lino's purpose to give luxurious furniture to Rini. He thinks that KPK investigators should investigate it. "Let it be investigated. I (only) pass the information. The invoice is there, transfer is there," said Masinton.
