INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Association of Higher Education Leaders of Indonesian Law (APPTHI) believes that the existence of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in Indonesia needs to be continuously supported because it can significantly increase the Corruption Perceptions Index in Indonesia.

KPK will continue to improve its GPA, at least close to Malaysia and Singapore, but the requirement is that KPK's duties should not be disturbed by others what else is demanded to be dissolved, said APPTHI Chairman Dr Laksanto Utomo to media crew after meeting with KPK leaders in Jakarta on Friday (13 / 10/2017)

From the scale of 1 s / d 100 GPA Indonesia in 2016 entered a score of 37 points or still in the order of 90 of 176 countries examined by the international survey institute. Malaysia reached a score of 50 points, Singapore 90 points and Philippines about 30.

"Once Indonesia under the Philippines and Thailand is now on it, therefore anti-parasitic agencies need to be supported by all parties, especially politicians from Senayan," he said.

In a meeting with a number of prominent university figures such as Prof. Dr. Ade Saptomo, Prof. Dr. Faisal Santiago and Prof. Dr. Mella Ismelina and Dean of Univ Taruma Negara Dr. Ahmad Sudiro, Laksanto again asserted, academicians who are members of APPTHI containers support KPK not without reason.

"Indonesia used to have a state budget of around Rp 100 trillion, when the government of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono rose to Rp300 trillion, now it is more than Rp2000 trillion, and if there is no tight and credible monitoring institution, it will be difficult to realize the welfare people from the government budget," he said.

He added, corruption is one that impoverishes the Indonesian nation.

Fixed How it Works Meanwhile Prof Faisal Santiago also said, APPTHI not only support the existence of the Commission, but also criticize the workings of the KPK is less professional.

"I am reminded that the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is a corruption eradication institution that has won the trust of the public at large so it is not easy to make someone as a suspect before having legal and strong evidence," making someone as a suspect for bribery or harming state finances should be clear," he said.

He said that someone who has been designated as a suspect by the KPK, as well as the death of his civil rights because many complaints to him, the children and family of suspects dare not go out of the house and even go to school because of shame.

Therefore, if a person has been made a suspect, it should immediately be tried in order to ensure legal certainty and justice.
