Defense Ministry, graft body ink deal

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Defense Ministry agreed Thursday to work with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on corruption investigations, particularly those relating to the procurement of defense equipment.

"The signing of the (memorandum of understanding) is active proof that we are serious about supporting the government's policy to wipe out corruption in order to achieve clean and good governance," Defense Minister Juwono Sudarsono said at the MOU signing at the Defense Ministry.

Juwono said the main elements of good governance were transparency and accountability, especially in equipment procurement.

"We need to straighten up accounts in the Defense Ministry," he said.

He said his ministry must serve the public, which means that it must be transparent and apply good governance.

"Corruption is not just a crime, but an extraordinary crime. We shouldn't see corruption as a case, but a problem," said KPK chairman Taufiequrrahman Ruki.

"Corruption destroys a nation's morality, taints the justice system and also disturbs the country's development because it is no longer mass-oriented," Ruki added.

With the signing of the agreement, the ministry will coordinate with the anticorruption body to share information and data related to procurement.

Ruki added that the military should also be allowed to have representatives at the anticorruption body.

"During this time, the military is only allowed to work in 10 state institutions, including the Defense Ministry. We want to struggle for the revision of the law to let them be able to work in the anticorruption body to help investigate military-related cases," Ruki said.

"We also expect to get support in terms of training or using their facilities," he added. (rff)
