The cost of law enforcement handled by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in dealing with corruption cases is very expensive. Therefore KPK is expected to be merged with other commissions, so that the performance system can be standardized and more effective. It was conveyed by Vice Chairman of the House of Representatives, Fahri Hamzah at the Parliament Building Jakarta Friday (02/02) to Media.

“We should integrate the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) with the prevention system. Let the law enforcement is done by the Police and the Prosecutor. Our prevention system is actually relative, it is a prevention that has power as well, especially in service area. So I propose the system is like in South Korea. In South Korea, the Corruption Eradication Commission was only established for 8 years, the rest is integrated with Ombudsman, so we have branches all over Indonesia,” Fahri Hamzah said. 

Vice Chairman of the House of Representatives, Fahri Hamzah also proposed the Commission to be merged with the National Human Rights Commission and Witness and Victims Protection Agency (LPSK), so it will be like a commission for complaints. According to him, if there is an unsatisfactory or violating state administration, then it can make a report to the commission. (VOI/AF/AHM)

The Indonesian government continues its efforts to address malnutrition in Asmat Regency, Papua. Changes in the community pattern in Papua has contributed to affect malnutrition Problem. In general, the people of Papua today are very dependent on the poor supply of rice from the government. This was stated by Minister of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Yohana Yembise to Media after a Consultation Meeting between the Government and House of Representatives at Parliament Building Jakarta Thursday (1/2). Another factor contributing to the problem of malnutrition in Asmat Regency is places where the Asmat tribes live which  are swampy, remote, and difficult to reach. Therefore the Ministry of Women's Empowerment and Child Protection will launch Child Friendly Regency Program.

“So we may come in, especially with the Declaration of the Child Friendly Regency where we must give attention to the children's rights to grow and development of the children, including special protection for the children there. Malnutrition, children in school or not, it includes in the 24 indicators under the Child Friendly Regency program. So we are launching the Asmat Regency to the Child Friendly Regency that will involve the traditional leaders, religious leaders including the the Regional Apparatuses and also the communities themselves who must support the program," Yohana said.

Minister Yohana Yembise also explained that if the Child Friendly Regency Program runs as existing and mechanism, then it will fulfill the right of the child among others Birth Certificate, education and health service. If those rights are not met, then that would have violated the Convention on the Rights of the Child. /// (VOI/AF/AHM)
