Indonesia should take leading anti-corruption role: watchdog

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Graft watchdog Transparency International (TI) wants Indonesia to take a regional lead in curbing corruption by encouraging the adoption and enforcement of a key UN accord, its chairwoman said Monday.

After meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Huguette Labelle said more countries should ratify the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), especially in Southeast Asia.

"We need more countries to ratify it, and we recommended to the president... that he should take a leadership role in ensuring that there is a strong monitoring of this convention, so that it is not just a piece of paper," Labelle was quoted as saying by AFP.

Labelle said that as one of the founding countries and largest members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia should promote the fight against corruption across the region.

She noted that Indonesia's leadership was crucial, especially as high-level officials were to meet on anti-corruption efforts in Bali in January.

Todung Mulya Lubis, chairman of TI Indonesia, said the global anti-corruption network wanted Jakarta to be active in promoting the issue at the upcoming ASEAN summit in Singapore.

"We asked the president to... introduce an anti-corruption agenda into the agenda of the summit," Lubis said, adding that TI was also pushing for an ASEAN Convention against Corruption.

"The president is very supportive and he assured us that he would take the anti-corruption issue to the ASEAN summit," Lubis said.

Yudhoyono came to power as the country's first directly elected president in 2004 on an anti-corruption platform, but critics have complained that his government's efforts to curb the practice have been lacklustre.

Commenting on Indonesia's recent anti-corruption record, Labelle said that "quite a lot of work has been done here to fight corruption, and that needs to be sustained and supported."

Indonesia is regularly rated as one of the world's most graft-prone nations.
