Commission files review of KPTPK

JAKARTA: The Public Servants' Wealth Audit Commission (KPKPN) planned to submit a judicial review request to the Supreme Court over law No. 30/2002 on Commission of Corruption Eradication (KPTPK) later this month.

"We will submit it before March 26," KPKPN Chairman Yusuf Syakir told reporters on Monday.

He said KPKPN expected the court to withdraw several articles of the law, particularly on the termination of KPKPN following the establishment of KPTPK.

Syakir said the law did not authorize KPTPK to audit public servants' wealth, which often indicates possible graft committed by the officials. -- JP
