Indonesian TV personality arrested for graft

The Jakarta Prosecutors Office on Thursday detained television personality Eddies Adelia for her role in a money laundering activity committed by her husband.

Eddies was detained after being questioned at the South Jakarta Prosecutors Office. "I am really heartbroken to be treated like this," Eddies told reporters following her detention.

Eddies was accused of receiving Rp 1 billion (US$83,400) from her husband Ferry Setiawan.

Ferry was arrested last year at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport after he arrived from Singapore, due to a report from businessman Apriyadi Malik, who allegedly lost Rp 21 billion to Ferry and Ferry's partner Ricky Rachmad.
