In Indonesia Corruption Reporter Can Get Prizes of up to Rp. 200 million

Now the Indonesian people who report corruption and bribery cases will get prizes, the prize is not in the form of cash in the amount of Rp. 200 million. This regulation has been set forth in Government Regulation (PP) Number 43 of 2018 concerning: Procedures for Implementing Duties and Responsibilities in Corruption Crimes, signed by President Jokowi on September 18, 2018 ..

According to paragraph (1) PP no. 43 of 2018 concerning the amount of premium given at most Rp. 200 million, as stated in Article 17 paragraph (2) PP 43 Year 2018 quoted from setneg.go.id website on Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
And for bribery case reports, the amount of award given is two per cent of the value of bribes and or money from the proceeds of the booty."The amount of premium given as referred to in paragraph (3) shall not exceed Rp 10,000,000 (ten million rupiahs),".To provide this award, law enforcement officers will first evaluate the level of truth of the report submitted by the complainant of a corruption case. This is as stated in Article 15 paragraph (3)."The assessment as referred to in paragraph (3) shall be conducted within a maximum of 30 (thirty) working days after the copy of the court decision that has obtained legal force remains accepted by the prosecutor," along with paragraph (4) Article 15.
With the signing of PP No. 43 of 2018 on the Procedures for Implementing Duties and Responsibilities in Corruption, there are institutions that do not approve the issuance of government regulations, as expressed by the Chair of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Agus Rahardjo


"The government should not have to bother issuing the gift-giving regulation PP because the KPK has its own gift-giving rules.

In fact, the government also does not need to bother allocating specifically, because it will be deducted immediately after the decision of the court, so it is returned immediately, "Agus said at the Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Wednesday (10/10/2018).

Agus explained, in the KPK's internal rules, the public who reported corruption had been given a prize of one percent of the funds returned by the reported corruption case defendant.

It turned out that not only the KPK chair did not agree with the issuance of PP No. 43 of 2018
Director of the Perbanas Institute of Anti-Fraud (Latifa) Institute, Haryono Umar, admitted that he did not agree with the issuance of Government Regulation No. 43 of 2018 which regulates reporters of corruption and bribery cases to receive prizes of up to Rp 200 million.

Haryono Umar, who is the Ex-Leader of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), said that law enforcement would find it difficult to determine which reporter should get paid.

"So far, even though there is no public incentive to report. At the KPK there have been hundreds of thousands of reports. The problem is that law enforcement is not ready (following up), "Haryono said in a conversation with KedaiPena.com, Saturday (10/13/2018).


Spending State Money
If we want to look at the responses of the two institutions that did not approve the issuance of the Government Regulation on the Procedures for Implementing Duties and Responsibilities in Corruption Crime, it can be said that the government will only waste the state money, because the KPK itself as a Corruption Eradication Agency already has its own rules regarding prizes what will be given to the corruption reporter so the government does not have to bother issuing the PP.

Such waste can be reinforced by the statement disagreeing with the Director of the Anti-Fraud Institute (Latifa) that so far before the issuance of PP No. 43 of 2018 without being given incentives, the public dared to report that there were even thousands of reports entering the KPK. play a role in helping the government eradicate corruption even without the lure of prizes.


The Need for Advanced Rules
On the other hand, Asrul Sani Member of Commission III in charge of DPR law, assesses Government Regulation (PP) No. 43 of 2018 which regulates reporters of corruption cases and bribery can get prizes of up to Rp 200 million there must be further rules.

Because, this PP brings other complications such as witness protection, certification of reporting corruption NGOs, gift giving.
"Therefore, this PP requires further arrangements from law enforcement," Arsul said in Jakarta.

According to Arsul Sani, this PP requires further arrangements from law enforcers, namely the Police, the Attorney General's Office and the KPK. If not regulated, Arsul is worried that it can cause problems. For example, the matter of physical protection from individual reporters.

Without a follow-up regulation, the community will be reluctant to report because they are worried about physical and family threats that will befall them

"This has not been clearly regulated in PP, so that the reporter's soul is threatened. This must be considered, "he said.
