KPK leadership selection committee

Handcuffs read 'criminalisation'

President Widodo announced nine new members of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) leadership selection committee Thursday, all of whom are women. Widodo effectively decapitated the commission in February by suspending two of its commissioners who were well-known for their aggressive prosecution of corrupt officials, judges, generals and politicians, replacing them with more 'compliant' interim chiefs after they were indicted by police on trumped up charges.
