Towards the end of last week, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) carried out a sting operation at several places including the Jakarta High Prosecutors’ Office (Kejati Jakarta) and arrested several people including prosecutors. The KPK named three suspects in the case but decided to “return” two prosecutors arrested during the operation to their institution, stating that the prosecutors were involved in a different case. KPK refused to explain further but by July 3, 2019, the Attorney General’s Office had decided to dismiss the prosecutors from their position.
