Bank Century & Political Parties

Tonight I watched TVRI's talk show: Dialog Aktual discussing about the Bank Century case, featuring Roy Suryo, member of Parliament (DPR) from the Democratic Party, Ganjar Pranowo, member of DPR from the Indonesian Democratic Party in Struggle (PDIP), and Ihsan Mojo, an economic observer from the NGO: INDEF.

The speakers discussed about illegal transfer of money to certain people, DPR's plan to set up a special commission to inquire about the case, who be the chief of said commission, etc., etc.

One interesting thing that I noted was Roy Suryo's revelation that some of the money was allegedly transferred to Murdaya Poo, the recently dismissed Treasurer of PDIP, husband of Hartati Poo, supporter of the governing Democratic Party, who filed a Police report against the NGO Benteng Demokrasi Rakyat (Bendera) who accused her of receiving money from Bank Century.

Roy Suryo's above revelation is very interesting, considering that until now the possibility of transfer of money from Bank Century to political parties has always been denied.
