KPK spokesman Johan Budi said that the antigraft body had questioned 15 witnesses in the case, but he remained tight-lipped on their identities and personal information, marking a departure from the KPK's typical pattern of announcing the names of suspects and witnesses and the dates of their questioning.
One key witness in the case, businessman Sukotjo S. Bambang, was previously sentenced to three years and 10 months in prison for fraud and is currently serving his sentence in Kebon Waru Penitentiary in Bandung, West Java. He filed a request with the LPSK to arrange a transfer to another correctional facility. KPK spokesman Johan Budi said on Saturday that while waiting for a new agreement between leaders of the anti-graft body and the National Police, investigations would continue with the case. Johan said officials from the two institutions had met twice to discuss how best to approach the case, but no consensus had been made so far. "We will go ahead with our investigation. The KPK and the National Police have yet to come up with a plan of how to work together, both need to meet again to discuss the definition of joint investigation of the simulator graft case that we have already discussed," Johan said. Johan said the biggest problem with the KPK investigation was the fact the suspects in police detention should have been questioned by the KPK. For the time being, the KPK would work on the dossier on Djoko. He said the KPK investigators had so far questioned 15 individuals outside of the National Police, including Bambang Sukotjo, the president director of PT Inovasi Teknologi who was already convicted in the case. "We have intentionally not disclosed much about the progress of our probe," said Johan. But for the sake of the investigation, they were not made public," spokesman Johan Budi said on Friday. Johan said investigators had so far questioned more than 10 people in the case. The KPK and National Police have locked horns over the probe, with the National Police's detective unit head, Sutarman, claiming that the police were investigating the case before KPK moved against Djoko. He accused the KPK of violating a memorandum of understanding between the two agencies and threatened to charge it with obstructing its investigation.

"The KPK has issued an investigation letter regarding three suspects: HK, KJM and SD," said KPK spokesman Johan Budi on Friday night, as quoted by Antara news agency.

Meanwhile, presidential spokesman Johan Budi, who previously served as a KPK commissioner, gave the impression that Jokowi would back public opinion against amending the law.
On Wednesday, Johan said that he was "only conveying the President's message" and not that of the government in rejecting the amendment plan, a statement that indicated that the government was split on the issue.

The KPK named Budi a graft suspect in January last year, following an investigation led by Novel.
During the standoff between the KPK and the police in January, which took place soon after the KPK's decision to name Budi a suspect, the National Police also moved to charge former KPK chairman Abraham and his deputy Bambang criminal suspects in forgery and perjury cases, respectively. The police have sent Abraham and Bambang's dossiers to the AGO, but it has yet to officially send them to court for trial. Presidential spokesman Johan Budi, who is a former spokesman of the KPK, said that Jokowi wanted those cases be resolved immediately. "The President is paying attention to those cases, not only Novel's case, but also Bambang's and Abraham's cases," Johan added.

Johan named Jokowi's
spokesperson Johan Budi, the former spokesman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) who went on to become the antigraft body's interim commissioner, has been named presidential special adviser for communication, the official title for the role of presidential spokesman. President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo made the announcement on Tuesday at the Presidential Palace following an earlier meeting with Johan, who, the President said, had the necessary experience and skills to engage with the public. "I believe Johan is a very experienced person," Jokowi said. "I am glad to have more and more good people in the Palace to help me." Johan's role will include coordinating with all ministries to ensure consistency of message. Since taking office more than a year ago, Jokowi had no official spokesman before the appointment of Johan. During his time on the team, Teten was often spotted accompanying Jokowi to meetings and official events, and is said to have been instrumental in the appointment of Johan. Teten, who also has a background as a prominent antigraft campaigner, approached Johan in the past two weeks following an instruction from Jokowi to offer him the job. Born in Mojokerto, East Java, in 1966, Johan joined the KPK in 2005 to serve as the commission's first spokesman. With his calm demeanor, Johan often had the high-profile task of announcing the identities of graft suspects, a role that saw him become the public face of the KPK. Many have lauded Johan, a former journalist with Tempo Weekly who earned a Bachelor's degree in engineering from the University of Indonesia in 1992, for his role in easing tensions during the many crises that hit the commission during his tenure. "I feel it's time to help [the President], to offer a more concrete contribution," Johan said, adding that he was optimistic that his professional background as KPK spokesman for around 10 years and his 12-year experience as a journalist would be advantageous to his latest role. Although the President now had a spokesman, he added, individual ministries would remain free to issue statements relating to their own remits and activities. Political communication expert Gun Gun Heryanto lauded Jokowi's hiring of Johan, saying that even popular presidents needed a mouthpiece.
