Lesson from Gayus Tambunan Out-of-Jail Case

Yeah, Agung is right when he said the biggest problem the country is facing is multi-layered corruption. Once it’s resolved, I don’t know how, the other problems such as poverty and education, will be easy to handle. I also fully agree that corrupt official should be put to death or at least life-time imprisonment and all of his/her property which is supposedly from corruption should be taken back by state
Gayus Tambunan’s get-out-of-jail scandal has touched a raw nerve like few others in a nation where corruption scandals are daily fare.
That’s because more than a decade after the collapse of former President Suharto’s 32-year dictatorship, many believe the greatest threat is not terrorism, a weak education system, poor infrastructure or even poverty.
“It’s graft,” said Agung Kumoroyekti, a 32-year-old computer salesman who wants the worst corruptors to be put to death.
“Otherwise nothing will change in this country,” he said. “If you’re rich or powerful, you’ll always be able to do what you want.”
