TODAY, the exact date of December 27, 2008 was completed five years of age Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). How does the performance of the Commission for five years?. The question is very important to put forward, because many people think of the performance of the Commission for five years can be used as guidelines to evaluate the existence and role of the Commission in eradicating corruption in Indonesia.

"Slow but sure", that is the most appropriate phrase to describe football actions the Commission in the last five years. The first time since it was founded on December 27, 2003 through Law No. 30 of 2002 on the Commission for Eradication of Corruption, slowly but surely the Commission began to show its fangs by making a variety of breakthrough.

Starting from the regents, mayors, governors, members of the House, former ambassadors (ambassador), former ministers, local government partners and the various departments to state officials in the environment as well as non-ministerial department did not escape being targeted in the eradication of corruption by the Commission. Even not only that, the Commission was also able to drag the Untouchable person or persons who have not been touched, such as besan President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Aulia Tantowi Pohan allegedly involved in a corruption scandal flows Indonesian Banking Development Foundation (YPPI) Bank of Indonesia to the number of members House of Representatives (DPR).

A series of achievements that have been etched by the KPK is feasible to get appreciation and thumbs up from us all. Because, in her still fairly young, the Commission has been able to be a promising institution. In addition, the various achievements made by the Commission can serve as tangible evidence of the seriousness of the intention of eroding the Commission out all forms of corrupt practices that have been very chronic in this country.

Of course we all want, many achievements have been made above, do not make the Commission feel complacent and quickly caught up in an atmosphere of euphoria. This is because capturing and dragged to jail embezzler (enforcement) is just one important agenda in the eradication of corruption that must be done by the Commission. In addition, there was a pile of anti-corruption agenda other that must be done by the Commission at this time. A pile of anti-corruption agenda is that, first, take steps to prevent corruption. This is very important to do in order to support and balance the enforcement efforts that have been very intensively conducted by the Commission. Related to corruption prevention efforts, the Commission could start by making efforts to reform the bureaucratic system (Bureaucratic reform) government today. Because, without any effort to reform the system of bureaucracy, corruption prevention efforts will inevitably experience a variety of obstacles.

Second, maximize the return duties of coordination and supervision of CCA with other law enforcement officers such as prosecutors and police. In connection with the implementation of these tasks, the Commission may immediately take firm action in taking over the process of investigation or prosecution of corruption cases handled by the protracted prosecution and police.

Third, realize the establishment of the Commission's representation in each region. The need for the establishment of the Commission's representation of this region have legally sufficient legal basis strong, as mandated by Article 19 paragraph (2) of Law No. 30/2002 on the Commission. In Article 19 paragraph (2) of Law No. 30/2002 explicitly noted, "the Commission may establish regional representation in the provincial capital." Formation of Commission representatives in each region is a very urgent necessity, because the Commission in Jakarta alone, have not proved adequate in handling the various reports allegations of corruption that occurred in the region. Commission representation in each region are also expected to eliminate or at least minimize the handling of the slow process of corruption by various law enforcement institutions in the region.

Fourth, continue to strengthen public participation (public participation) in efforts to eradicate corruption. Commission impossible to walk alone in combating corruption. Therefore, the need participation and public support. With such massive efforts will arise all the people of Indonesia in the fight against corruption cancer. In addition, the Commission also needs to strengthen community groups or NGOs in the region in order to support efforts to eradicate corruption in the region and to encourage and open space for the public to monitor the performance of the Commission.

Finally, we hope, hopefully all the moves that have been made by the Commission for five years, not just warm chicken droppings. Initially moving very fast, but slow at the end of the journey. Long live the Commission, progress continued to fight corruption.
