Most corruption involves civil servants: ICW
The Jakarta Post
Civil servants dominate corruption cases in Indonesia, research conducted by an anti-graft NGO revealed on Saturday.
In the research by Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) into corruption cases from 2013 to 2016, civil servants ranked first in involvement in graft cases followed by private-sector parties.
The ranking indicated serious issues in the country’s administration, ICW researcher Aradila Caesar said on Saturday.
“There is a high possibility that the procurement of goods and services remains the favorite sector to garner profits,” he said as reported by tribunnews.com.
Moreover, he said, the 2014 Law on regional administration had not diminished corruption in the regions.
“Most civil servants involved in corruption are from provincial, regency and municipal administrations. Regional bureaucrats are still the biggest actors in corruption,” he said adding that local officials’ strategic position in holding key roles in local development had opened room for graft.
