JAKARTA - Jakarta Metropolitan Police said police had found evidence that Rachmawati Soekarnoputri had transferred funds to pay for the logistics of the meetings arranged to discuss efforts to topple the government.
"We have found the evidence of the fund transfers," Jakarta Metropolitan Police Chief, Inspector General M Iriawan said as reported Antara, Wednesday (11/1).
He said it did not matter if Rachmawati denied it, as the police would not need clarification, or a confession from her.
Rachmawati, the daughter of the countrys first president and sister of former president Megawati Soekarnoputri, has been named a suspect, along with several others in a plot to topple the government
"There are witnesses and documents. We have found enough initial evidence, and so the process (investigation) will continue," he said.
Previously, Rachmawati confirmed she give Rp300 million to Alvin Indra. But that comes from private money, and not obtained from sponsor.
"It is from my own, hard-earned money of my years. I'm not unemployed. I lead University of Bung Karno, if there is slander from sponsor, who is the sponsor. It's well-propagating slanderous, made as if there a flow of funds," Rachmawati said after meeting with Deputy Chairman of the House Representative (DPR) Fadli Zon at DPR/MPR, Jakarta, Tuesday (10/1).
