PKS to initiate impeachment unless KPK speeds up Bank Century probe

The Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) says it will voice an impeachment against Vice President Boediono if the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is slow in investigating the Bank Century bailout.

"We feel the KPK is reluctant to investigate the case. If this continues, then PKS will initiate the right to state a political opinion on the case," PKS secretary-general Anis Matta told reporters in Jakarta on Monday.

A political opinion right is an initial part of the impeachment process at the House of Representatives.

The Bank Century case revolves around a bailout that ten folded to Rp 6.76 trillion President, and Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati.
