TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) utilizes digital media as a means to make public aware of any information about corruption and the agency itself.
The anti-graft agency uses the digital media, among others, to publish annual report submitted to the president and the House of Representatives (DPR), inform the result of a financial audit conducted by the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK), as well as a public accountability conducted through mainstream media, whether online, print, or radio.
KPK also uses social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube. “We maximize the use of all media. We have quite a lot of followers on Twitter, at around 2.5 million accounts,” said the KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah at Bidakara Hotel, Jakarta, Wednesday, December 5.
The anti-graft body is maximizing the use of social media to invite many parties to get involved or at least understand about corruption, how to be involved in preventing corruption, and how to avoid corruption. “We have planned the material to be published every day,” he said.
The public can also use digital media to report a corruption crime as a participation in helping the KPK eradicate corruption.
