It was stated by Rio as he is about to conduct examination at the KPK Building.

"Not yet (to appeal for pretrial)," answered Rio at the KPK Building, Jalan HR Rasuna Said, Kuningan, South Jakarta, Friday (10/16/2015).

Meanwhile, Rio's legal advisor, Maqdir Ismail plans to apply objections on his client's suspect naming. However, Rio's legal team will listen to KPK's explanation first.

"Yes, later (appealing for objection), I think it would be later. We will see, as until today we do not know exactly what is brought up against Mr Rio. We only read in the media that against Mr Rio, he was imposed by Article 12 a and b, as well as Article 11. Meanwhile Mr Gatot was imposed Article 5 paragraph 1 as a giver and then Article 13. Surely we can argue this," he explained.

Until the news is written, Rio is still being examined by KPK investigators. The former politician of PAN was examined in the case of social aid fund as a witness of the suspect, North Sumatra Governor Gatot Pujo Nugroho and his wife Evy Susanti.

It is published before that Rio is established as suspect by KPK. He allegedly received promises, presents or gratification from the North Sumatra Governor Gatot Pudjo Nugroho (now inactive) and Evy Susanti, as related to the securing of case handling of social aid for the North Sumatra Province, at the North Sumatra High Court or Attorney General.

Following the establishment, Rio directly decided to resign from NasDem and the House. He was caught by Article 12 letter a and b, or Article 11 of Law No. 31/1999, as revised by Law No. 20/2001 on corruption eradication crimes.
