Indonesian anti-graft agency may be more politicised

Monday, June 14, 2021

Significance

Many of those set to lose their jobs have filed appeals and lawsuits against their removal. In 2019, amendments to the law underpinning the KPK sparked protests over concerns that they would weaken the institution.

Impacts

  • The current government will try to reassure the public of its anti-graft intent in a bid to assuage concerns arising from the dismissals.
  • Potentially effective staffers will be dissuaded from seeking employment at the KPK.
  • A weaker KPK will reduce the impact of investor-friendly political reforms.
