Police are questioning the Indonesian business partner of President Donald Trump over allegations he sent threatening text messages to a deputy attorney general. Hary Tanoesoedibjo arrived at the national police’s Criminal Investigation Agency in central Jakarta on Friday morning after failing to comply with a summons for questioning last week.

The billionaire, better known as Tanoe, is barred from leaving Indonesia from June 22 to July 12, which could be extended at police request. Tanoe is accused of sending threats last year through to Yulianto, a deputy attorney general for special crime who investigated a 2009 graft case related to Mobile-8 Telecom, a telecommunications company that Tanoe once owned.

His conglomerate MNC is developing two luxury resorts in Indonesia that will be operated by the Trump Organization.
