Previously, the www.hukumindo.com platform has talk about "The New Criminal Code Has Been Passed As Law, Will Be Effective 3 Years Later", "Mengenal Taufiequrachman Ruki, Ketua KPK Pertama", "The 4 Weirdest Judges' Verdicts" you may read also "List of 100 Regional Heads Affected by Corruption Cases by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK)" and on this occasion we will discuss about 'Unique Case, Accounts of Bird Sellers in Madura Blocked by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK)'.
This bird seller on Madura Island suddenly couldn't access the money in the bank account where he kept the money. Apparently, there is the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) which ordered the blocking of the bird trader's account in Pamekasan. The account that was 'blocked by the KPK' was a BCA (Central Asia Bank) account belonging to a bird seller from Buddih Village, Pademawu District, Pamekasan, named Ilham Wahyudi. Ilham himself only found out about the blocking when he went to the BCA Pamekasan Branch office, Wednesday (25/1/2023).
In the excerpt of the letter issued by BCA dated January 16 2023 it is stated: Based on a request from the Corruption Eradication Commission as referred to in letter R/35/DAK.01.00/20-23/01/2023, January 11, 2023 regarding opening a blocked account on behalf of Ilham Wahyudi on January 13, 2023. Based on that letter, BCA finally blocked Ilham's account. He can not withdraw money but can receive incoming money. When contacted by detikJatim, Ilham said he was confused and disappointed. He even emphasized that he had never accepted a big, strange project. "I never got any project," said Ilham.
Account Name is the Same as the Name of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Suspect
Ilham's BCA account was blocked because he has the same name as one of the suspects in the East Java (East Java) Provincial Government grants corruption case. "The information we obtained, the name and date of birth of the person concerned happened to be the same as the name of the KPK suspect who submitted a blocking request. The differentiating data is in the address," said Head of KPK Reporting Unit Ali Fikri when contacted, Friday (27/1/2023).
In fact, the bird seller's balance was only IDR 2 million. "My balance so far is just over two million," Ilham told, Thursday (26/1/2023).
