Right of Inquiry against KPK Continues

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The House of Representatives (DPR) will continue to process a right of inquiry against the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) which was passed in a plenary held on April 28.

Following the passage of the inquiry, the DPR will form a special committee (pansus). The committee will comprise of 30 members from 10 DPR factions. It will inquire the KPK about the recordings of alleged intimidation by six DPR Legal Commission members against Miryam Haryani, a witness in the electronic identity cards (e-KTP) graft case. DPR will also inquire about seven other issues, which include the financing of new KPK building construction, employee official trip costs, and goods expenditure at the directorate of information and data deputyship monitoring.

The DPR yesterday held a consultative body meeting which discussed the right of inquiry, among others. According to the DPR deputy speaker Agus Hermanto, the DPR factions have yet to propose a representative in the first house meeting following a three-week-long recess period. “We have suspended the meeting until next week and we expect names will already be nominated by factions,” he said.

So far, the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) is the only party that has expressly refused to send its representatives to the special committee despite the fact the party was one of the initiators of the KPK inquiry. At the plenary, Fahri Hamzah signed the proposal for the right of inquiry representing the party. PKS President Sohibul Iman later reacted and said that Fahri was not PKS member. “We will not send any of our members,” the PKS faction secretary Sukmata said.

Aside from PKS, three other parties had rejected the right of inquiry: Gerindra, PKB and PAN. However, Gerindra and PKB seemed to have changed tack and willing to send their representatives. Meanwhile, PAN is now undecided. A member of the Legal Commission from Gerindra Muhammad Syafii said that the party will send its representative(s). “We want to abide by the law because it’s the plenary’s decision,” he said.
