Indonesia's highest-ranking judge arrested for graft
Indonesia's anti-graft officers arrested Constitutional Court chief justice Akil Mochtar, the country's highest-ranking judge, in a late-night operation on Wednesday which saw four others nabbed.
Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) officers made the arrests in two locations based on a tip-off, catching three of them red-handed with up to 3 billion rupiah (S$325,000) worth of Singapore dollars.
The three, including Mr Akil, were caught in his house in southern Jakarta's Widya Chandra complex where some senior politicians and ministers live in.
One of the five arrested was a politician, said local reports.
