Exigent Circumstances of Corruption

It is impossible that this fast and simultaneous political process is just a coincidence. The agreement of all factions in the DPR to revise the KPK Law is a repeat of a similar incident in 2016.

.

The issue of corruption has again attracted attention in line with worries over the selection of candidates for the leadership of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the launch of the revision to Law Number 30 of 2002 concerning the KPK, the inclusion of corruption criminal clauses in the Criminal Law Procedures Code Bill and the revision of the Correctional Law.

It is impossible that this fast and simultaneous political process is just a coincidence. The public and activists have highlighted that the four agendas are a systematic weakening of the efforts to eradicate corruption (Kompas, 5/9/2019). The agreement of all factions in the DPR to revise the KPK Law is a repeat of a similar incident in 2016. At that time, the President and the DPR agreed to postpone and not include it in the national legislation program in the following years. The launch of efforts to revise the KPK Law by raising the old issues about wiretapping permits, the right of prosecution, the formation of the KPK Supervisory Board and several other restrictions certainly provokes astonishment as well as questioning about the seriousness of the DPR in fighting corruption.
