The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) said on Tuesday that it would soon hold a case reconstruction on the Bank Century case to determine the fate of former vice president Boediono and other former Bank Indonesia (BI) directors in the controversial Bank Century bailout in 2008.

Acting KPK commissioner Johan Budi said the case reconstruction would be conducted to follow up on the Supreme Court's rejection of an appeal filed by former BI deputy governor Budi Mulya, who was sentenced in connection to the case to 10 years behind bars by the Jakarta Corruption Court in July 2014.

"The reconstruction will be conducted as soon as we finish studying the cassation court verdict," Johan said on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court increased Budi's sentence to 15 years, after the Jakarta High Court had increased it to 12 years.

The Jakarta Corruption Court in its verdict on Budi confirmed the roles of other individuals it deemed responsible for the controversial bailout, including Boediono, who served as the BI governor when the bailout decision was made, former BI senior deputy governor Miranda Goeltom and then BI deputy governors Siti C. Fadjrijah, Budi Rochadi, Muliaman Hadad, Hartadi Sarwono and Ardhayadi Mitroatmodjo.
