JAKARTA: The Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta is prepared to help the families of two Malaysian men who are being detained by the Indonesian Corruption Eradication Commission (CEC) in getting legal services and coordinating meetings with the detainees.
Malaysian Ambassador to Indonesia Datuk Syed Munshe Afdzaruddin Syed Hassan said the CEC had also given its assurance to give full cooperation in providing access for consular officers to meet with the detainees when the time comes.
He said he had also asked the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) liaison officer at the embassy to contact and inform the families about the men's status.
At present, one of the men is being held at Metrojaya police lock-up in Central Jakarta, while the other, in East Jakarta.
It is also learnt that one of them lives in Section 19, Shah Alam, Selangor, while the other one in Bangsar Utama Apartment in Kuala Lumpur.
The two men were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly helping wanted corruption case suspect Neneng Sri Wahyuni to avoid arrest since last year.
Yesterday, the CEC confirmed the two men as suspects and were charged under Section 21 of the Corruption Criminal Law of Indonesia, called Tipikor in short, for obstructing investigations on the corruption case.
One of the men was arrested at a hotel and the other while on his way to the prison where Neneng's husband, Muhammad Nazaruddin, is serving his time.
Neneng, on the other hand, was arrested at her house in Pejaten, South Jakarta upon arriving in a taxi from the Soekarno Hatta International Airport, also on Wednesday.
Muhammad Nazaruddin, a former treasurer of the Democratic Party, was arrested in Colombia last August and brought back here on graft charges.
The couple was alleged to be involved in a multi million dollar corruption scandal related to the Manpower and Transmigration Ministry's 2008 solar power plant project. BERNAMA
