Police Crossed the Line
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:House Law Commission legislator Eva Kusuma Sundari has said the police should recuse themselves from handling the alleged corruption case in the procurement of a driver's license test equipment because the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is already handling it and the matter has entered investigation stage.
If the police fails to let go of investigations into this case, it can be blamed for not complying with Law No. 30 of 2002 on KPK. "Based on Articles 11 and 50 of the Law on KPK, other institutions should withdraw once KPK starts investigating," said Eva.
Two days ago, KPK searched the offices of the Indonesian Traffic Police. The search was occurred days after Inspector General Djoko Susilo, the police traffic divisionís former chief, was declared a suspect. In fact, according to the Director of the Center of Anti-Corruption Study, Gadjah Mada University, Oce Madril, KPK is obligated to take over the case to avoid conflicts of interest.
Head of the Public Information Department, Police Commissioner Agus Rianto, says his department has also been investigating the same case since last April. The police did not encounter any difficulties in investigating this case. "The only difference between police and KPK is in the speed a suspect is determined," he said yesterday.
