The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) conducted their latest Sting Operation in Jambi and Jakarta on November 28, 2017. Dozens of people were brought in for questioning, among others are members of the Jambi Regional House of Representative (DPRD Jambi). At first, news outlets reported that the officials in the Jambi provincial government had an agreement with the DPRD to facilitate the approval of Jambi’s 2018 budget, but later on the KPK added a little more detail on the allegation. The Ministry of Transportation is being investigated by the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Unit (Bareskrim Polri) on a separate case, i.e., the allegation of abuse in the procurement of marine patrol boats belonging to the Directorate General of Sea Transportation in the 2013 and 2014 fiscal year. In this case, the Bareskrim has named one suspect, who is the same official suspected of being involved in a similar case back in 2009.To subscribe please click here
