Angelina Sondakh? Tick. Who’s next?

On Friday KPK announced that Angelina Sondakh, the Democrat parliamentarian and former artis (celebrity), has been named a suspect in the corruption case involving construction of the athletes’ village for last year’s Southeast Asian Games in Palembang, South Sumatra.  The press is now asking “who’s next?”  It seems increasingly likely that the current Chair of the Democrat Party, Anas Urbaningrum, will also be named a suspect in the case; that Angelina will provide additional evidence that will allow investigators to connect the incident to Anas.

Somewhat tongue in cheek, ICW cleverly called on KPK to make the former celebrity / popstar sing:

The Corruption Eradication Commission should be able to make the new suspect in the case of alleged bribery relating to the [SEA Games] Athletes Village, Angelina Sondakh, open all the issues involved in the case. “Make her sing,” said the coordinator of Indonesian Corruption Watch, Danang Widoyoko, when contacted by Tempo, Saturday, February 4, 2012.

One way to make Angie talk is to make her a justice collaborator who can work together [with KPK]  to uncover the case. According to Danang, Angie is the right person for this role in this case. As long as KPK can clearly prove her involvement and can coax a confession from her.

Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi harus bisa membuat tersangka baru kasus dugaan suap Wisma Atlet, Angelina Sondakh, membuka seluruh persoalan kasus tersebut. “Buat dia bernyanyi,” kata Koordinator Indonesian Corruption Watch, Danang Widoyoko, saat dihubungi Tempo, Sabtu, 4 Februari 2012.

Salah satu cara untuk ‘membunyikan’ wanita yang akrab dipanggil Angie ini adalah dengan menjadikannya justice collaborator atau pelaku yang dapat bekerja sama mengungkap kasus. Kata Danang, Angie dinilai sebagai orang yang tepat melihat dugaan perannya dalam kasus ini. Syaratnya, KPK harus bisa terlebih dulu membuktikan dan membuat Angie mengakui perbuatannya.  [Tempo.co here]

Meanwhile, Suara Merdeka reminded its readers of Angelina’s motto for the Democrat Party in the 2009 national elections:

Still remember the passage of this ad? “Block your ears and say … No!”

These words were spoken by Angelina Sondakh in an advertisement of the Democrat Party’s anti-corruption media campaign before the 2009 elections. Wearing a blue dress, Miss Indonesia 2001 was thumbs down for the corruptors.

Masih ingat petikan iklan ini? “Tutup telinga dan katakan…Tidak!”

Perkataan itu diucapkan Angelina Sondakh dalam sebuah iklan antikorupsi Partai Demokrat yang merupakan media kampanye menjelang Pemilu 2009. Memakai busana biru, Putri Indonesia 2001 itu mengacungkan jempol ke bawah untuk para koruptor.  [Suara Merdeka here].

You can watch the advertisement on YouTube below, Angelina is the third woman in the blue shirt with black polka dots.  It’s quite funny; like a low-budget jamu ad?
