Issue: Case highlights culture of bribery at police HQ
June 5, Online
With air conditioners, five sets of sofas, a television, and a water dispenser complete with a tea-and-coffee set, the police chief’s reception area is one of the most pleasant public areas one can find at the Jakarta
It is a space provided to anyone who wishes to meet the city police chief, Insp. Gen. Untung S. Rajab. In the words of city police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto, the room “is open to just about anyone”.
They are waiting for a statement from the President of Indonesia.
If he does not react, it seems that he takes not care about the corrupted situation in the institution.
This is a front-runner for the “least surprising headline of the year” award.
Many months ago, I remember that SBY “ordered” the police to have their wealth reports on his desk within one week. He does not remember anything coming of it.
So nobody seems to want to do anything about the problem.
