One Million Signatures from Bekasi to Support Susno Duaji

A group of Bekasi residents have launched a campaign to collect one million signatures to support the National Police’s former chief detective, Susno Duaji, in his actions to disclose case brokering paractices in the police force. The signature-collecting activity took place at the Bekasi Islamic Center building and the city’s Mega Mall building, said the campaign’s coordinator, Jon Edy, here Saturday.

"The second round of our activity will be held in front of Bekasi Grand Mall building, the railway station and the main bus terminal on Monday," Edy told Antara. According to him, the action was a manifestation of concern about the weak performance of law enforcers in fighting corruption, case brokering, and judicial mafia networks as had become publicly known lately.

Susno had recently disclosed publicly that case brokering had taken place during the investigation of a suspicious account of Rp25 billion belonging to Gayus Tambunan, a middle-tanking official of the Directorate General of Taxation.

He said police had only investigated Rp395 million of the Rp25 billion while the rest of the money has disappeared. Susno claimed two police generals had benefited from the disbursement of the funds from the account.
