The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Tuesday was visited by six representatives from the government of Bangladesh conducting a comparative study of Indonesia's fight against corruption. “They received orders from their prime minister to improve their Anti-Corruption Committee (ACC),” KPK deputy chairman Bibit Samad Riyanto said Tuesday as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.
Bibit added that the ACC, the Bangladeshi equivalent of the KPK, had not been as effective as its Indonesian counterpart and was thus looking to the KPK for guidance, which the KPK was more than willing to help with.
“We shared information, including on their plans to improve their corruption elimination law and how to make ACC more independent,” he said.
The team of six Bangladeshi officials was led by Bangladesh Parliament delegate chief Suranjit Sengupta, and included Bangladeshi Ambassador to Indonesia Golam Muhammad.
