Coordinator of Region II Sumatera from the Prevention Corruption KPK, Adlinsyah M Nasution were going back to Kepri, Tuesday (5/6/2018). Indonesia’s Corruption Eradication Commission (Indonesian: Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi), abbreviated as KPK, is a government agency established to fight corruption.
He met with the Governor of Riau Islands, Nurdin Basirun and the entire head of the regional apparatus organization (OPD) in the Riau provincial government. In the meeting, he reminded some important things that need to be considered by the Governor of Riau Islands and the head of the WTO.
“I reminded them again about e-planning, e-budgeting, integrated licensing and strategic projects,” Adlinsyah told the media crew after the meeting on Tuesday (5/6/2018) afternoon.
Anti-corruption efforts began in Indonesia in the 1950s. Following strong criticism of corruption at the beginning of the New Order regime in the late 1960s a Commission of Four was appointed by president Suharto in 1970. The report of the commission noted that corruption was “rampant” but none of the cases it said were in need of urgent action were followed up. Laws were passed in 1999 giving the Police and prosecution service the authority to investigate corruption cases.
Adlinsyah said he will review the one-door ministry in Kepri province. He confessed at his first arrival, he had reviewed the one-door service. He got angry when he saw the one-door service was not yet transparent.
“I want to review again, if it is not true, I am angry again,” said Adlinsyah, “the permit must be handled properly.
Coordinator of Region II Sumatera Korsup KPK Prevention then asked all parties including the media crew to provide reports to the KPK. He even claimed to have rarely received reports from the public and the Kepri media crew related to irregularities in government management.
The KPK vision is to free Indonesia from corruption. Its duties include investigating and prosecuting corruption cases and monitoring the governance of the state. It has the authority to request meetings and reports in the course of its investigations. It can also authorise wiretaps, impose travel bans, request financial information about suspects, freeze financial transactions and request the assistance of other law enforcement agencies. It also has the authority to detain suspects, including well-known figures, and frequently does so.
“My number is this one; 0813 8069 6633,” Adlinsyah said.
