The Corruption Eradication Commission is looking forward to additional evidence of e-KTP graft case from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation.

This would be the result of the cooperation between KPK and FBI in probing Johanness Marliem, one of the key witness of the case.

"Hopefully, we'll already have it in the next few weeks," said KPK deputy chairman Saut Situmorang to Tempo on Thursday.

Marliem, who owned evidence in form of conversation recordings of people involved in e-KTP project, was shot dead in Los Angeles, US, on Aug. 11.

The company he established, Biomorf Lone LLC, was awarded the project to procure the automated finger print identification system for the e-KTP program.

"Some of the evidence are currently being held by US authority. KPK only prompts what is required," said Saut. He, however did not deny or justify the conversation recordings were included in the evidence.

Before his death, Marliem himself claimed to have been questioned by KPK twice in US and Singapore.

KPK investigators went to US and Singapore to find new evidence that hinted the involvement of some member of the House in the case that caused Rp 2.3 trillion in state losses.

"We send investigators abroad to meet a key witness," confirmed KPK Chairman Agus Rahardjo last July.
