THE CURRENT SITUATION OF INDONESIAN LEGAL SYSTEM FACES IN REGARD TO CORRUPTION AND SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS INCLUDE RELEVANT CORRUPTION CASES.
Issues raise in the present situation in Indonesia is developing cooperation network with other government agencies in the prevention of corruption to Enforcing Anti Corruption Law, recording and examining the Wealth Reports State Officials, supervising powers over the investigations conducted by the Police on corruption cases and the prosecution of such cases, protection for Whistle Blowers and Witnesses of corruption cases.
Suggestions to overcome those issues are establish M.O.U with other government agencies for cooperation in the prevention of corruption, administrative requirement that all state officials to submit their wealth reports, continuously improving coordination and networking with the Police and the Attorney General’s Office, the government should draft laws to protect whistle blowers and witnesses of corruption cases, and further to obtain public information. Other matter issue raise is there are no guidelines for “Gift” receiving all officials. Corruption mostly happen from habit, which is not realized by civil servants or government executives to become corrupt acts, for example accepting special gift by civil servants or their family member on private events / ceremonies, receiving certain benefit like discount, which is inappropriate and other facilities like vacation tour and free medical services. People are thinking and building opinion that such kinds of presents are just an expression of grateful and they are just legal. But it should be aware, that such kind of presents are always related to the position of the recipient, and always connected with certain purpose of the giver in the time being or in the future.
As Indonesian citizen hope can overcome corruption in Indonesia, will do so if persuaded that must, careful studies exposing in detail the system, networks, and social economic cost of corruption are essential tools in the anti corruption campaign, whether Indonesia is more or less corrupt than other countries is immaterial, the vast majority of Indonesians see corruption as an evil that must be eradicated, so fighting corruption is at the heart of Indonesia’s reform agenda.
