The Foreign Ministry on Wednesday announced it has completed documents required by Colombian authorities to repatriate fugitive graft suspect M. Nazaruddin who was arrested by local police in Cartagena on Sunday.

The Colombian government had asked for an official letter of request from the Foreign Ministry, including the legal considerations for the handover of Nazaruddin to Indonesian authorities in Colombia.

Nazaruddin is wanted by the Indonesian government for his alleged role in the corruption of state funds earmarked for the 2011 SEA Games.

"I have received reports from our representatives in Colombia. The Colombian government has accepted the [documents]. Based on our schedule, Nazaruddin will be handed over from the Colombian prosecutors′ office to the Colombian Immigration office, on August 10 at 5 p.m. local time,"Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa said Wednesday.

The Colombian Immigration office would then release Nazaruddin to the Indonesian government, Marty added, without detailing the exact hand-over schedule.

Marty said that a special team sent to collect Nazaruddin was already in the Colombian capital, Bogota. However, he could not confirm when Nazaruddin would be deported from Colombia.

Nazaruddin is currently being held under the custody of the Colombian authorities.
