JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM – Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Febri Diansyah said that if the KPK budget is frozen the work cannot be maximized and those reaping the benefit are the perpetrators of corruption.

"If the KPK budget is frozen or cut so that then making the KPK works less optimally, of course the most benefited are the perpetrators of the corruption itself," said Febri Wednesday (6/21/2017).

Febri also mentioned likewise if the police budget is frozen there will be a greater risk, the police cannot work optimally to combat criminal acts.

"It's the same when the budget in the police force is frozen or cut, there will be greater risk throughout Indonesia, the security guards have the task of combating terrorism as well as other criminal cases," he said.

Furthermore, Febri suggested that it should be considered carefully because this move will harm society a lot.

"But I think institutional-wise the House of Representatives of course hopefully will remain concern on strengthening the eradication of corruption," he said.

Freezing the budgets for KPK and Polri is a personal idea from Misbakhun, a member of the House of Representatives from Gerindra Faction. (*)
