KPK to hire new investigators
Paper Edition | Page: 8
The chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), Abraham Samad, has said the antigraft body would be recruiting independent investigators to replace the 20 police officers seconded to the commission who have been recalled to their police posts.
Abraham said the KPK planned to hire 30 investigators and that they would not come from the National Police or the Attorney General’s Office (AGO).
He said the KPK would start hiring soon after receiving the go-ahead from the Supreme Court, which will provide training to the new investigators.
The KPK had previously said that its graft investigations would likely come to a halt after the National Police recalled 20 officers deployed to the commission.
