Luhut and Riza Chalid Summoned to Ethics Trial Today
Setya Novanto (Photo: AFP), Jakarta: House of Representatives (MKD) summons Coordinating Minister of Politics, Law and Security Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan and businessman, M Riza Chalid today (12/14/2015). Both person will be examined for House Speaker Setya Novanto's case.
Luhut will come to the trial at 1 PM. While Riza is scheduled to come earlier at 10 AM.
"Mr. Luhut has confirmed his attendance while we don't get information from Mr. Riza yet," said MKD Deputy Chief Junimart Girsang, on Saturday (12/12/2015).
Junimart said Luhut is summoned because his name was mentioned 66 times in the recorded coversation between PT Freeport Indonesia CEO Maroef Sjamsoeddin, Setya Novanto and Riza Chalid.
"We will check the truth about the recorded conversation," Junimart added.
However, there are MKD member who doesn't agree to summon Luhut. "What is the urgency to call him to ethics trial. Mr. Luhut didn't involve in conversation between Novanto, Maroef and Riza about Freeport's contract extension. This is just wasting time," said MKD member, Syarifuddin Sudding, Sunday (12/13/2015).
Another MKD member, Akbar Faisal hoped the trial will be open for public.
