There is no doubt that the Office of the Attorney General has serious corruption problems. The most recent case is testament to that fact. It is also testament to the fallacy of the claims made by the current Attorney General, Hendarman Supandji, that he was going to clean up the image of the Office and make it corruption free. This is a fallacy because some of the Attorney General's own appointments are implicated in serious corruption.
Nevertheless, despite the title of this post and the above paragraph. Perhaps rather than singling out the Attorney General on corruption there is a need for the House of Representatives or the DPR to be a little more introspective and clean up their own backyard first. With a general election coming up in 2009 there are already rumblings of money politics being heard around the traps. It is expected that the "fees" required to get on some tickets is going to increase this cycle. This means that there is still a belief in some circles that a ticket to Senayan is a ticket to the big pay day and a life lived in the lap of luxury.
As I said, the Office of the Attorney General needs to clean house, no doubt about it. But if we are going to talk about cleaning house then it needs to be across the board. The DPR needs to get their collective heads out of the sand and the individual parties must take a "real" stand against corruption rather than just pay continual lip service to an ideal for which they do not really aspire.
If you play with fire for long enough eventually you will get burned!
