The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) took a very long time to complete the indictment of Tubagus Chaeri Wardana (Wawan), the brother of former Banten governor Ratu Atut who is accused of money laundering. The trial began with the hope that it would force Wawan to take responsibility for his crime, but yesterday, that hope vanished.
