Fight to Corruption!

Fight to Corruption!

CORRUPTION is one big problems in this country. Corruption made Indonesian to be poor. The Government Republic of Indonesia was try to fight corruption. But, didn’t not yet significant progress up to now.

Why? Apparatus efforts can’t get assets and dragging the hazy hoodlums in overseas is the fact. Several corruptors was escape in overseas still are enjoying until now. Moreover, they are free while spreading them business using money from corruption.

The President Republic of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, made Coordination Team to fight corruption by Keputusan Presiden No.11/2005, on 2 May 2005. But, one of responsible team is dragging corruptors in overseas, did not yet success.

Hunter team was track twelve corruptors in Singapore , United State, Hongkong, Cina, and Australia. But, only identification total asset in overseas. They were predicted if total asset from corruption in overseas until Rp6-7 billion.

Of course, isn’t easy get success corroptors. Not only needed tactical skill looking for suspects. But, also must have smart in diplomacy.

One problem caught corruptors because several country such as Singapura–which one country transite fund area from corruptors, precisely protected corruptors.

Indonesia hopes Singapore can implementation the cooperation of the extradition agreement for handled transnational organized crime— especially fight to corrupt.

But, Singapore not agree to sign extradition agreement with Indonesia.

Indonesia and Singapore made plan to implementation extradition agreement since 30 years ago. That agreement is very important for Indonesia vecause can make more easier to caught corruptors in Singapore was save much money from corruption.

But,different for Singapura. The return of Indonesia corruptors assets saved in Singapore , can make negative effect for Singapore moneter stability.

A third of 50 thousand richest people in Singapore that had the wealth on 1 million US dollar from Indonesia . This value very significant for economics Singapore .

The government claim was carried out diplomacy efforts. Minister of Coordinating Politic, Law, and Security, Widodo AS said, an effort to return results of the crime of corruption to the homeland, the government will carry out several efforts.

That is ratifying ASEAN Regional Treaty ounce Mutual Assitance in Criminal Matters. Government also more intensive made relationship with several countries—which be place safe money from corruption, include country was famous as place for money laundering.

“Government need to appointed what is country must more priority immediately to compiled by the reciprocal legal agreement,” Widodo said.

If we talking using by quantity date, so much Indonesian money in kept in overseas bank. The international financial service company, Merrill Lynch and Capgemini at 2006 published survey if total asset 55.000 reachest in Singapore about US$260 billon Property of the Indonesian citizen. 18.000 Indonesian citizens who were domiciled at Singapore reached US$87 billion (around Rp800 trillion).

And then, so many Indonesian Citizen safe money’s in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Swiss, dan Caymand Island.

But, that Big fund flowed overseas came from corruption. For example, Bantuan Likuiditas Bank Indonesia (BLBI) case. About Rp138,4 triliun from total fund around Rp 144,5 triliun, and corruption BLBI fund was got 48 bank about Rp80,4 triliun, safe in Singapore .

The popular corroptors name like Samadikun, Sjamsul Nursalim, Agus Anwar and etc up to now still enjoying free life in Singpura. They are corruptors was stole Indonesian money. We also knew Maria Pauline Lumowa, suspect case of the BNI piercing around Rp1,2 triliun, did’t cough by apparaturs up to now.

Public also get new case if The Attorney General was froze Tommy Soeharto save money in Banque de Nationale Paris (BNP) and Paribas.

Do the government and the Attorney General handled all corrupt case? Or just hunting without results

I think, two strategy to cought corruptor in overseas. We can using by usually or extraordinary methode. The apparaturs can hunting using by assually, and the first must make extradition agreement with another country.

And also with help from Interpol country were be place corruptor hid.

However, this process will need a long time to achieve the agreement and often fail in implementation.

The team not only carried out diplomacy efforts or the bilateral co-operation.

But, certain condition could carry out intelligence efforts with took had or kidnapped and brought the perpetrators of corruption to Indonesia illegally.

The hunting was not only carried out against assets of the hoodlums but also must be carried out against sides that helped the hoodlum to escape.

At this time, the Attorney General’s Office was investigating money on behalf of Tommy Soeharto that was hidden in Banque de Nationale Paris (BNP) and Paribas with a value of 36 million euro or around Rp421 billion. The Indonesian government filed the intervention lawsuit against the case because of suspecting Tommy’s money of in BNP Paribas coming from the corruption activity.

The Chief Attorney General Republic of Indonesia, Abdul Rahman Saleh, said attorney currently prepares the additional proof. The Guernsey Court in the decision interrupted received the Indonesian government to become the intervention plaintiff in the case between BNP and Paribas and the Investment Garnet belonging to Tommy.

Millions of Indonesians waiting Attorney General to show concrete results of the eradication of corruption.

Apparatus could snare and seize assets of the hoodlums to be returned by the country’s treasury for welfare of the people.

Disappear Before being snared

Legal apparaturs did not yet prove his strength in catching the large-scale class hoodlums.

The Great attorney general’s office could just arrest the hoodlums who hid in the country. The hazy hoodlum overseas up to now unclear his handling.

Thabrani Ismail for example. The accused six prison years in the case of Export Oriented project corruption (Exor) I Balongan with a value of 189,58 million US dollar was arrested by the official of the Attorney General’s Office in Jakarta last February 14.
