Too Little Too Late

Shackles read 'pressure', 'interests' (political)

Nearly six weeks since his nomination of Budi Gunawan as police chief, triggering a feud between the national police (the Crocodile) and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK, the Gecko) after it named Budi a graft suspect, President Widodo has finally scrapped the nomination and put forward another 'fat bank account' cop, deputy police chief Badrodin Haiti instead. Anti-graft activists however say it's too little too late as it fails to address the police's ongoing criminalisation of the KPK which has incapacitated the commission and its work.
