ICW researcher suggests KPK reduces gimmicks and controversies

Tempo - September 28, 2020
Friski Riana, Jakarta – Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) researcher Kurnia Ramadhan on Sunday said what the KPK (corruption eradication commission) Law No. 19/2019 had dictated onto the anti-graft body has changed its staffing system and raises questions about independence.

The anti-graft body's independence will be questioned as the law mandates KPK staff to be a state-apparatus or civil servant.

"Because it has already changed due to the KPK Law that has been applied," said Kurnia to Tempo on September 27.

Rather than evaluating the staffing system, the ICW researcher suggested its leaders fix the institution's management by "reducing political gimmicks and minimizing controversies."

The researcher's statement comes after KPK deputy Nurul Ghufron said that he would evaluate the staffing system in the group following a number of resignations by KPK employees. KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah said that his resignation on September 18 is due to political and legal circumstances that has changed within the anti-graft body.
