TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesian Corruption Watch (ICW) urged the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to take action and investigate the two former KPK investigators who allegedly committed the act of evidence tampering as reported by Indonesialeaks.
“KPK leaders need to continue to maintain the dignity of the KPK’s struggle as a respected institution with great reputation and its good name, that has been proud of by many,” said ICW Coordinator Adnan Topan Husodo in a written statement received by Tempo, Thursday, October 11.
IndonesiaLeaks, a platform for the public to report the scandal of the public official and private sector in Indonesia, revealed the indications of the evidence tampering at the KPK. The act was allegedly committed by the two former KPK investigators from the Police institution, named Roland and Harun.
Adnan regretted that the KPK’s internal scandal did not touch the legal process. The two former KPK investigators were instead returned to their original agency and got a promotion.
“Even though the KPK repatriated them because they were considered to have committed an ethical violation, namely damaging the evidence belonging to the KPK confiscated from CV Sumber Laut Perkasa,” Adnan said.
“The KPK itself responded flatly, and even seemed to avoid it when Indonesialeaks succeeded in revealing all the facts related to the destruction of the evidence,” said Adnan.
