KPK proceeds with bribery prosecution as key suspect Harun Masiku remains at large

first_imgThe Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has proceeded with the prosecution of businessman Saeful Bahri in a bribery case implicating Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) politician Harun Masiku, even though the latter remains at large.KPK deputy chairperson Nurul Ghufron said that investigators had deemed Saeful’s case file complete even without Harun’s testimony, thus the prosecution could proceed. The KPK handed the case file over to prosecutors on Friday. “What is important in a bribery case is the clarity that the giver is X and the receiver is Y, who is a state actor and that it is within the latter’s duty and authority to proceed with their consensus,” Ghufron said at the KPK headquarters on Friday. He said that the investigation into the case had revealed that Harun had bribed General Elections Commission (KPU) commissioner Wahyu Setiawan in exchange for the latter’s approval for the politician to fill the seat of a deceased politician in the House of Representatives. The KPK named Harun a bribery suspect on Jan. 9 and has put him on its most-wanted list.Read also: Concerns of cover up grow after KPK dismisses officials probing KPU bribery caseGhufron added that even though there was still time for the investigation and detainment to proceed, the KPK had the right to hand over the case file as long as it was considered complete.”Within 14 days, the public prosecutor will hand over the case to the Corruption Court. The trial will be held at the Jakarta Corruption Court,” KPK acting spokesperson Ali Fikri said in a written statement.The case revolves around a dispute between the KPU and the PDI-P over who should take over a legislative seat left vacant by deceased PDI-P politician Nazaruddin Kiemas. The KPU gave the seat to Riezky Aprilia, who won the second-highest number of votes in the April 17, 2019, legislative election, despite the PDI-P’s request that it be given to Harun. On Jan. 8, the KPK arrested Wahyu for allegedly accepting Rp 600 million (US$43,950) from Harun through former Elections Supervisory Agency member Agustiani Tio Fridelina and Saeful. The four suspects have been charged with bribery and, except for Harun who has been declared a fugitive, are now in KPK custody. (ars)Topics :last_img read more

Pardew demands more from Newcastle

first_img The 51-year-old has endured a difficult few weeks on Tyneside as his side has slipped down the table to the point where it faces a very real fight for top-flight survival. “It’s a big, big club and we don’t want to be playing, with all due respect to the Championship, in the Championship,” Pardew said. Press Association Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is determined not to ruin his CV by adding another relegation from the Barclays Premier League to it.center_img “Hopefully we get the result we need or two results or three, whatever it is. It is in our hands. We have a five-point cushion, although Wigan have a game in hand, and that’s a significant cushion at this stage. “We need to increase it and if we increase it, it will be very difficult for Wigan to catch us.” It has all been in stark contrast to his first 18 months at St James’ Park, which saw him steer the Magpies to mid-table safety in their first season back in the Premier League and then roar to a fifth-place finish and European qualification last time around. Whatever happens between now and May 19, Pardew will sit down with owner Mike Ashley and managing director Derek Llambias at the end of the season to discuss what went wrong and the implications for the future. In some ways, it will be an uncomfortable conversation with mistakes having been made at boardroom and managerial levels as well as on the pitch. But against the backdrop of claims of disunity within the dressing room, which have been vehemently denied by Newcastle, and mounting pressure on the manager from outside the club in the wake of thumping home defeats by derby rivals Sunderland and Liverpool, Pardew is concentrating solely on football. He said: “There’s no point having an inquest at the moment because it’s no good to anybody. The most important thing is getting ourselves safety in the Premier League, and that’s what we will try to do.” last_img read more

MBB : Olivero: In SU’s 2-game win streak, each player perfects specific role

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 6, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img TAMPA, Fla. — Jim Boeheim finally had time to reflect. It was his turn to talk and answer short, fleeting questions.Time during which the head coach mused about the Big East conference in front of the assembled press.He smiled as he simply summed up the Orange’s last six games: four losses followed by two wins. With the 23-point blasting of South Florida, he took the opportunity to speak his mind.‘Everybody recognizes that it is a tough league, and everybody understands that. But then when you lose, they don’t understand it,’ Boeheim said. ‘So I guess they don’t really understand it is what we are trying to say here. They don’t get it. They get it, but they don’t get it. It is a very difficult league.’‘They,’ of course, are the talking heads who spoke and wrote of SU’s apparent apocalyptic four-game skid. The highlight of which was a disaster at the hands of Seton Hall on Jan. 25. Ten days later, unfounded rumors of a point-shaving scandal from that game ensued.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn the brink of Boeheim’s first five-game losing streak in 35 years as head coach, national media members flocked to the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., to officially experience the implosion firsthand. SU needed to rekindle whatever remained of a once third-ranked 18-0 team.Did Syracuse ever. And it did so because of something new in the past two games: the establishment of the roles each of SU’s integral parts must provide from game to game.In the midst of the four-game losing streak after the Seton Hall loss, SU sophomore guard Brandon Triche was explicit regarding what SU needed: the proper contributions from each member of SU’s lineup. Game in and game out.‘I think we have to just come together as a team, that’s the biggest thing,’ Triche said on Jan. 25. ‘To lose three in a row, it’s almost like losing to Le Moyne. It’s a bad feeling.’Balance wasn’t there. Boeheim said it himself minutes before Triche, forecasting what was needed to guide his 33rd 20-win team through situations like this in the beastly Big East.The players’ roles were filled against the Huskies and Bulls.Rick Jackson is the MVP. Kris Joseph is the scorer who can bring scrappy effort on defense with his length. Scoop Jardine is the conductor, dishing out a top 20 national mark in assists per game. Triche is the late-game scorer who can become the X-factor.As for the young players, C.J. Fair provides a highlight-reel freshman’s production from dunks to blocks. Dion Waiters is the utility scorer. As for the freshman centers Fab Melo and Baye Moussa Keita, they need to bring production that amounts to one solid big man next to Jackson.And in the past two games, everyone played his role for the first time all season.Look at the early Big East wins: Against Providence, Melo, Moussa Keita and Waiters did nothing. Against Notre Dame, it was more of the same. The first time against Seton Hall, Jardine’s four turnovers trumped his three assists. In Madison Square Garden against St. John’s, Jardine again had more turnovers than assists. And versus Cincinnati, Joseph scored two points as he left the game with a concussion.Then came the losing streak. Then came the point-shaving allegations and the trip to Hartford. Finally, SU filled the roles: Moussa Keita played the best game of his life while Melo sat. Jackson went 13 and 13. Joseph scored when needed. Triche was that X-factor with 16 points. Jardine sunk clutch free throws. Fair jetted to the right spots at the right times. Waiters scrapped for nine points and three steals.And it continued in Tampa: Fair skied for nine rebounds and three blocks. Waiters scored 10. And in his homecoming, Melo showed his best conditioning of the year in extended minutes while Moussa Keita cheered from the sideline.Just what Boeheim has been yearning for. Just what will get SU through Big East play as one of the conference’s powers. Just like Boeheim has experienced for 35 years.The furthest thing from a team experiencing a collapse. Rather, the first concrete step toward Big East basketball dominance once again.Tony Olivero is the development editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

No. 10 USC blows by Buffaloes in a 50-6 drubbing

first_imgUSC’s offense has remained a point of contention for a sizable portion of the team’s fan base throughout much of the season.The No. 10 Trojans either rely too heavily on their passing game, or coach Lane Kiffin is too conservative by calling for running plays in situations that scream for a throw, they insist.But those critics were largely silenced Saturday. Senior quarterback Matt Barkley threw for 298 yards and six touchdowns to set a school and Pac-12 record for career touchdown passes, as USC (6-1, 4-1) ran past an overwhelmed Colorado team, 50-6.Record books – Senior quarterback Matt Barkley became the all-time Pac-12 leader in TD passes in Saturday’s 50-6 win against the Buffs. (photo by Carlo Acenas | Daily Trojan)The Trojans, following a two-year postseason ban, are also bowl eligible for the first time since the 2009 season.“The sky wasn’t falling,” said Kiffin during his post-game news conference. “Matt can still throw.”That much was evident. Barkley’s career total for touchdown passes now stands at 102, moving past former USC signal caller Matt Leinart, who had finished with 99 during three seasons from 2003-06.“It’s special, it’s an honor,” Barkley said. “I’ll take credit, but I mean, I’ve been here for four years so hopefully we put some production up.”Of his six touchdown tosses, four of them safely landed in the hands of junior wide receiver Robert Woods on plays of 39, 29, 17 and three yards over a span of just two and a half quarters. Barkley’s 17-yard touchdown toss also marked a significant milestone for Woods, his 217th career catch, breaking the school’s all-time receptions record previously held by Dwayne Jarrett.The third-year wideout finished with eight catches for 132 yards against the Buffaloes (1-6, 1-3).“I grew up watching all those receivers,” said Woods, whose four touchdown receptions also marked a single-game school record. “As I accomplished what I did today, I don’t see myself above them but a part of an elite group.”USC, as a group, looked elite as well. And the squad looked fast, perhaps as the result of its use of a no-huddle, quicker-paced offense for much of the contest. Barkley’s first touchdown, a 55-yard strike to sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee over the middle of the field, came after just 50 seconds, on the team’s second play from scrimmage. And by the nine-minute mark of the first quarter, the Trojans already led 19-0, energizing an announced sellout crowd of 83,274 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.On the afternoon, the Trojans would finish with 458 yards of total offense, 340 of them through the air, carving up an inexperienced and rattled secondary. The 50 points were also the highest single-game scoring total of the season.“I don’t care what pace we actually play at,” Lee said, “as long as we do what we need to do when it’s time to do it.”But as prolific as USC was offensively, it was again plagued by penalties. Entering the game, the team ranked 124th, dead last, in the Football Bowl Subdivision, in penalties per game with 10. And again, the Trojans were heavily penalized, nine times in fact, for 90 yards, allowing the Buffaloes to keep some of their drives alive.During the first quarter, on Colorado’s first drive of the game, redshirt freshman Anthony Sarao was called for a personal foul penalty, helping the Buffaloes inch further down field, all the way down to the 21-yard line before quarterback Jordan Webb’s ill-advised throw was intercepted by senior safety Drew McAllister in the end zone.Later in the half, freshman defensive tackle Leonard Williams was also penalized and ejected for punching a player — classified as a flagrant foul that will be subject to review by conference officials, according to a school spokesman. It was not, though, deemed to be “fighting,” which would warrant an automatic suspension.“We looked really undisciplined,” Kiffin said. “I felt bad for our fans, I felt bad for our former players. It was taking away from a really special day.”Next weekend, USC travels to Tucson, Ariz., to square off against Arizona. With three of its five remaining games to be played at the Coliseum, it will be the last time the Trojans leave Southern California during the regular season.“We play one week at a time,” Kiffin said. “We go out of L.A. for the last time this year. We have to get back to work.”last_img read more
