KPK Plans Bold Actions
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Deputy Chair of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Bambang Widjojanto has hinted that a current minister in the Indonesian parliament will be named a suspect in the nest six months.
"The message from Mas Pram on catching an active minister, give us half a year, the dream will come true," Bambang when he was speaker at a media discussion entitled “The existence of KPK in the Eradication of Corruption in Indonesia”, at the KPK office on Tuesday.
Bambang made his statement in response to a comment made by Deputy Speaker of the House (DPR), Pramono Anung, a fellow speaker at the discussion. While Pramono appreciated the bold and firm steps taken by KPK to catch a number of senior officials related to the corruption cases they handled. However, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle politician (PDI-P) also asked them to be courageous in arresting active officials involved in a corruption case.
Unfortunately, after the discussion, Bambang was reluctant to reveal in more detail, the said minister. Despite repeated questions, he refused to comment. "Let’s wait a while. Don’t create provocation," he said, evasively.
Last week, Pramono Anung criticized the KPK, who named his colleague, Emir Moeis, as a suspect in the bribery case in the PLTU Tarahan, Lampung tender case. He said the case was politically charged.

In addition to the alleged corruption in the construction of the Hambalang sports center involving Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng, the KPK is investigating alleged bribery at the Ministry of Labour involving Labor Minister Muhaimin Iskandar.
