Fighting Corruption in Remote Areas

Inadequate oversight has caused corruption to run riot in many rural areas of Indonesia. But a few courageous people finally decided to fight back. In Lampung, a legal aid foundation trained citizens to be paralegals, who succeeded in putting some corruptors in jail. In a West Kalimantan village, a young woman started monitoring and noting down the government’s infrastructure spending. And in Semau Island, East Nusa Tenggara, a subdistrict chief led citizens to fight officials who misused development funds. They confronted the corruptors and reported them to the authorities. Tempo English presents the following report on the occasion of Anti-Corruption Day on December 9.
