JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – Not only criticizing the anti-graft commission’s (KPK) safe house that provides maximum protection for witnesses, but the House of Representatives’ KPK Inquiry Special Committee also questions the effectivity of official wealth report managed by KPK.

According to the Chairman of KPK Inquiry Special Committee, Agun Gunandjar Sudarsa, the effectivity of official wealth report becomes questionable since the authority to audit wealth report got transferred from the State Officials’ Wealth Audit Commission (KPKPN) to KPK.

"In my point of view, I don’t see any report, how effective is it after KPKPN got merged and continued by KPK," Agun said while he was welcoming the former General Chairman of KPKPN, Anwar Sanusi, at the KPK Inquiry Special Committee’s report post, Wednesday (9/8), as quoted from

Agun said he has received much important advice from former officials of KPKPN in the closed meeting. He said that the advice from Anwar Sanusi becomes one of the points that will be considered in arranging recommendations of the special committee’s work result.

Agun claimed that the special committee invited Anwar to ask for his opinion and information about how KPKPN works, particularly after the agency got merged to KPK.

According to Agun, the existence of KPKPN in KPK could be optimized if KPK prioritizes prevention efforts, such as gathering data on state officials’ wealth. They always make a report every year. "The special committee has to see the correlation of the state officials’ wealth. Therefore, prevention efforts can start from there," Agun stated. (rm)
