Brilio.net - Former Chairman of the National Mandate Party (PAN) and seasoned politician Amien Rais plans to meet the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) leaders at the KPK building, Jakarta on Monday.

PAN Politician Dradjad Wibowo confirmed the plan without mentioning the exact time as they are still waiting for the green light from the KPK.

"According to the initial plan, Amien Rais will come before dhuhur (midday prayer), but we're still waiting for confirmation from the KPK first," said Dradjad.

Dradjad said that Amien Rais will provide explanation following the mention of his name in an alleged corruption of medical equipments procurement trial.

He added that KPK should not turn down Amien Rais's intention since his name was cited in the trial without his acknowledgment.

"Of course, he (Amien Rais) respect the KPK, thus they also must regard Amien Rais,” Dradjad said.

Amien Rais reportedly received money from former Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari who allegedly committed corruption in a procurement of medical equipments.

The trial revealed that Amien Rais received Rp 100 million for six times starting from January 15 to Nov. 2, 2007 from then PAN Chairman Sutrisno Bachir.

The money is said to come from the profits of private company appointed by Siti Fadilah to handle the procurement project at the Ministry of Health.
