I would like to see the whole case [the recent scandal] as an entry point to reform the legal institutions in Indonesia,' Mr Nasution, 75, said in a telephone interview. With enough evidence, 'we might make a recommendation to establish a state commission to reform the legal institutions so that we have rule of law in Indonesia.
My own thoughts - this is probably a temporary balm on a much deeper problem. Nasution cites the example of Hong Kong's Independence Commission Against Corruption, but studies suggest that political willpower was the most important factor in ICAC's success. By contrast, recent reports implicate SBY in the conspiracy caught on tape. Indeed, the KPK indicted SBY's son's father-in-law, and, according to The Jakarta Post, was said to be preparing indictments against more members of his inner circle. While there is no evidence directly tying SBY to the conspiracy, so far Indonesians do not see him as a profile in courage, according to new polls.
