KPK can no longer prossecute?

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

A friend of mine told me that some people suggested to cut KPK's (Corruption Eradication Commission) authorities in the new draft law so that they will be required to hand in their case to the public prossecutor's office. In the current law, KPK has the authority to prossecute people. So far, I have obtained no documents indicating that this story is true.

In my last post, I quoted a Jakarta Post article reporting that the new draft law will "delete" corruption court and future cases will be settled in public courts.
