KPK Demands Authority to Tackle Corruption in Private Sector

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Deputy Chairman Laode M Syarif asked for authority to tackle corruption in private sector stipulated in Criminal Code (KUHP).

"In Criminal Code, there should be an article stating that KPK has the authority to handle corruption cases in the private sector," Laode said in Jakarta on Saturday, Jan. 20.

The House of Representatives are currently finalizing the draft of Criminal Code stipulating that corruption cases in private sectors purely committed by private sectors without including state institution will be included in Criminal Code.

Corruption cases in the private sector have already stipulated in Law No. 7/2006 on Ratification of United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC). However, the regulation is still insufficient since the authority is only given to the Police and Attorney General.

KPK is excluded from law enforcement that can handle corruption in private sector since KPK Law No. 30/2002 only authorized tackling corruption committed by state institutions.
