Ngaku is ready to be hanged at Monas
The most well-known controversy about the figure of Anas Urbaningrum is the statement “ready to be hanged at Monas” if corruption is proven. Unmitigated, he issued the statement twice.
The statement from the former Democratic elite reads, ‘Just one rupiah for Corruption, Anas Hambalang, hang Anas at Monas’. The first statement was made in 2012 when his name was dragged into the Hambalang corruption case.
In the end, Anas was proven guilty of corruption. As a result, he became the butt of the Indonesian people who seemed to keep on asking for their vow ‘ready to be hanged at Monas’.

The next Anas controversy occurred in 2013 when he satirized Vicky Prasetyo. At that time, Anas actively followed information developments outside the world of politics.
Through his Twitter account @anasurbaningrum, he made a sharp satire on the ex-fiancé of sworddut Zaskia Gotok. According to him, Vicky Prasetyo often uses self-intellectual language, and alludes to heart controversy.
“The increase in electability of soybeans has caused #controversy and #economic instability for tempe producers,” tweeted Anas Urbaningrum on his Twitter account at the time.
Funds to the Democratic Party Congress
Anas allegedly received money from Hambalang partners in the amount of IDR 100 billion in 2013. The money from the Hambalang project was given to win Anas as General Chair of the Democrats at the congress in Bandung in May 2010.
The money for Anas was allegedly handed over to PT Adhi Karya in cash through Anas’ confidant, Machfud Suroso.
Refuse search warrant and confiscation letter
Still in 2013, Anas Urbaningrum’s team of attorneys held a press conference after Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigators conducted a search and seizure.
During the conference, Anas rejected the search warrant and confiscation letter from KPK investigators. The reason was because there was no correlation with the examinee who at that time was Machfud Soroso.
