KPK told to provide doctor to key witness in Miranda case

Padang panel of judge instructed the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Monday to provide a doctor to a key witness who was absent due to illness from the trial of a bribery case over the election of Bank Indonesia deputy governor Miranda Goeltom.

"We need a second opinion from a doctor provided by the KPK," presiding judge Nani Indrawati said Monday.

Monday's trial was supposed to hear testimony from Nunun Nurbaeti, who allegedly distributed checks to legislators for choosing Miranda as Bank Indonesia deputy governor, but she failed to appear before the court, citing illness.

The bribery case involves a number of legislators who held posts at the House of Representatives between 1999 and 2004.
