Jakarta: The electronic id-card (e-KTP) graft suspect Setya Novanto has dodged the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) summons for the third time.
This morning, KPK planned to examine the House of Representatives speaker as a witness for another e-KTP graft suspect. KPK wanted to question the Golkar Party chairman about the e-KTP budget deliberation in the parliament.
"He failed to attend KPK's questioning. He refused to come without president's clearance," KPK spokesperson Febri Diansyah said.

In October, KPK named Novanto as a suspect in the e-KTP graft case for the second time. A number of media leaked Novanto's suspect status before the official announcement.
In July, KPK named Novanto as a suspect in the high-profile graft case for the first time. A pretrial ruling revoked Novanto's suspect status few months later.
