He said the government maintains its independence and does not want to interfere in the internal affairs of the KPK. But it is expected that the agency will solve the problems that occur and remain solid.
"The government certainly cannot interfere in, the Commission has its own procedures in accordance with the law," added the Vice President.
Previously, the Special Committee for the Right to Question KPK delivered 11 meeting points, while conducting investigative duties related to KPK duties and authorities.
KPK Commissioner Commissioner Hendry Yosodiningrat assessed the pansus should be able to convince the government and the public that the findings obtained are a condition that must be improved.
Therefore, according to him, whoever hears and knows it must accept the recommendation of the Pansus such as restoring the authority of the Police and the Attorney General.
"Because they carry out some of the authority possessed by the Police as investigators, and prosecution from the Attorney General," he said.
