The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has questioned Jazuli Juwaini, a politician with the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), in connection with a graft case implicating fomer religious affairs minister Suryadharma Ali.

"[I will be questioned] as a witness to Pak Suyadharma Ali," he said at the KPK building on Monday.

He declined to comment about the contents of the questions.

KPK spokeswoman Priharsa Nugraha confirmed Jazuli's interrogation.

"Yes, he will be questioned as witness," quoted her as saying.

Suryadharma was named a suspect in connection with a case involving the haj in 2010-2011 and 2012-2013, which was estimated to have caused Rp 1.8 trillion in losses to the state.
