In Indonesia, "The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is certainly proving that it's not some toothless quango (quasi-autonomous non-government organisation) with yet another legislator, the fifth this year, being nabbed red-handed in a shopping mall carrying $66,000 and €5,500 in cash.
"Another one I've had my eye on is the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) which, given the public knowledge and experience of malfeasance in all branches of the legislature and judiciary, the supposed lawmakers and law upholders, you'd expect would be riddled with corruption.
"Last week, the BPK issued their audit of City Hall's 2007 budget. They placed it in the 'lowest confidence' category after finding numerous irregularities in the city's bookkeeping.
"They found 169 irregularities totalling over Rp 5.6 trillion (US$604 million)." - Jakartass
