Ramadhan Pohan, the deputy chairman of House Commission I that oversees defense issues,
questioned the validity of results from a recent survey conducted by watchdog Transparency
In the survey, whose results were announced earlier this week, Indonesia was given an E, one
step above the lowest score, in the Government Defense Anti-Corruption Index. The score
meant that Indonesia is considered to be at “very high risk” of corruption.
Ramadhan said that the results of the survey were baseless. “Who does it involve, where is the
evidence? If one accuses without providing the evidence, that is tyrannical,” said Ramadhan,
a lawmaker from the ruling Democratic Party.
He said that if there were any violation, he would not hinder any legal process. But he added
that law enforcement could not be based on opinion and perception.
