1NEWS – Political observer Kacung Marijan considers that the anti-corruption education program must be carried out holistically and involve as many parties as possible.
Therefore, it makes sense that the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) plans to cooperate with ex-corruptors in the program.
However, Kacung reminded the KPK not to put former corrupt convicts in a central position.
“Because the real anti-corruption figures are those who have been tested and have integrity,” he told 1NEWS, Thursday (3/9).
Kacung said that the public must understand that efforts to eradicate corruption must be carried out through all means.
“It’s not a matter of having to choose this or that. If you have to choose, it’s hard. The good examples come from public officials who are not corrupt and the bad examples come from corrupt prisoners,” he said.
The lecturer at Airlangga University considered that there was no intention of the KPK to improve the image of corruptors by cooperating with them in an anti-corruption counseling program.
“Corruptors have a bad image and must be held together as bad examples in anti-corruption programs so that people understand,” he said.
