INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of Commission III of the House of Representatives, Bambang Soesatyo, considers the Police to form and function Special Detachment of Corruption Disorder (Densus Tipikor) because there are significant changes in the national development policy.

According to him in Jakarta on Thursday, the change was marked by the amount of funds transfer to the regions and the village funds required a new approach to the supervision and security aspects.

"Local fund transfers plus village funds have reached the range of Rp760 trillion with the distribution of funds to the regions covering 34 provinces, 416 districts and 98 cities, in 2017 the number of villages receiving village funds was 74,954 villages," Bambang said.

He assessed the size and breadth of the distribution area of ​​funds to the regions and the funds of the villages already illustrates the burden of surveillance and security burden that is not very light.

According to him, the challenge is to ensure that the transfer of funds to the regions and village funds effectively reaches its objectives so that there should be a new approach to the supervision and security aspects.

"If there is no new strategy, the result is predictable, the total ineffective development fund will increase because it is only deposited in the bank by dozens of local governments until the development funds will be deposited and no one knows," he said.

Golkar Party politicians judge in that context, the Police to design and prepare the Corruption Densus because the work crawl the institution covers the entire territory of the country.

In addition, according to him, Dictus Tipikor also prepared to take a big role on the burden of supervision and security burden of national development policy.

"The Dict Corruption units will be alert and working in 34 provinces, 416 districts and 98 cities and 74,000 villages," he said.

He asserted that there is nothing wrong with the Police Headquarters step to establish and functioning Densus Corruption so that all parties should not be excessive in addressing the initiative of the Police.

According to him, the Corruption Densus is actually nothing more than an escalation and sharpening of the function of the National Police in securing national development policy so that the delay of the Corruption Densus function should not be too long.

"The government should be more proactive in giving understanding to the public about the burden of monitoring and security burden of national development policy," he told media crew in Senayan Jakarta

He reminded that the eradication and prevention of corruption should always be interpreted solely as law enforcement work and for the sake of law, the eradication and prevention of corruption should never be politicized.
