Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) deputy chair Alexander Marwata (right) and KPK investigators present evidence on Thursday (25/10/2018) at its Jakarta headquarters. The commission confiscated Rp 385 million in cash and Rp 6.4 billion in bank deposit and transfer receipts in a sting operation against Cirebon Regent Sunjaya Purwadi Sastra, who was named a bribery suspect along with Cirebon Public Works and Spatial Planning Agency secretary Gatot Rachmanto. The two are suspected of allegedly selling administrative positions, projects and related permits.

The Corruption Eradication Commission’s (KPK) arrest of the regent of Cirebon, West Java, Sunjaya Purwadisastra, reaffirms the idea that Indonesia is facing a corruption emergency.

Sunjaya was reelected as Cirebon regent in the 2018 regional election. He was arrested by the KPK for allegedly trading in administration posts and receiving bribes from local businessmen. Sunjaya is the 100th regent the KPK has arrested since its inception. This is deeply embarassing and alarming.
