Six months have passed since the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested the head of the powerful Upstream Oil & Gas Regulatory Task Force (SKK Migas) Rudi Rubiandini under the suspicion of receiving bribes. A lot has happened since then. One of the biggest developments being the sentencing of Simon Gunawan Tanjaya, an executive of oil trader Kernell Oil Indonesia, to 3 years imprisonment after being found guilty of bribery in the SKK Migas graft case. Yesterday (Jan. 16), the KPK declared the former Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Waryono Karyo, as a suspect in the case. Around the same time, the KPK also searched the office of Democratic Party politicians Sutan Bhatoegana and Tri Yulianto.
