Date: Tuesday May, 19 2009 10:02

Since 1998, Indonesia started a new era of reformation. During this era, law enforcement has become the main issue. Some of Indonesian Public Officers arrested and sentenced in prison regarding corruption cases. The role of Corruption Eradication Commission (Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi/KPK) in the eradication of corruption is being unquestionable. Some of Senior Public Officers (who seemed to be untouchable) were arrested and proven guilty. KPK raises society trust and comes as a super body institution.

All of a sudden, the arrest of Head of KPK  Antasari Azhar on May 4th 2009 regarding murder case startled the society. Antasari Azhar was accused of murder of Nazrudin Zulkarnaen, the Director of PT Putra Rajawali Banjaran, the subsidiary Company of PT Rajawali Nusantara Indonesia. Nasrudin Zulkarnaen was shot twice on  March 14th  2009.

The police named Antasari as the prime suspect of the case. Regarding the case, Senior Police Officer and a media entrepreneur were arrested and named as supporting suspects. Love affair and corruption were predicted as the motive for the murder.

As Antasari being arrested, societies are afraid that corruption eradication program will be stagnant. But Deputy of KPK M Jasin ensured that KPK would keep working professionally. “It’s a challenge for KPK to improve its work. KPK would not be dependant to an individual.”

Support for KPK to continue its work also came from some members of House of representative. “There is no reason that KPK is being loose. KPK must not stop its activity, it should be keep going on” said Fahri Hamzah, member of Commission III House of Representative on May 8th 2009.

We do hope that the case is going to be settled clearly. Law should be enforced, no matter who she/he is and/or what she/he is.[Des]
