The Last Perkenier of Banda Naira

NUTMEG, the main commodity of the Banda Naira islands, had its heyday in the 16th century. The Dutch, through the Dutch East-Indies Company (VOC), even sent 37 perkeniers (plantation owners) from the Netherlands to Banda to manage the plantations, in order to cover the nutmeg monopoly supply for Europe’s market. Only one descendant remains of the 16th-century perkeniers: Pongky Erwandi van den Broeke, who manages 12.5 hectares of land. He was the victim of unrest in 1999.

Two Investigations, No Breaks

Dirgantara Indonesia allegedly paid Rp178.98 billion in kickbacks to generals and middle-grade officials in the defense ministry, Indonesian Military (TNI), and officials at other ministries. The money is taken from aircraft and helicopter procurement and maintenance projects, which were run by the state-owned aircraft manufacturer from 2008 to 2016. Dirgantara labels the money as ‘marketing fee’ using fictitious partners.

The Harun Mystery

KPK leadership appears to be keeping Harun Masiku’s whereabouts secret, stating that he was overseas prior to the series of arrest operations. Tempo’s investigation found that Harun was in the capital city during KPK sting operations. While investigating the bribery case implicating KPU member, Wahyu Setiawan, KPK’s investigation team has been met with great challenges without the full support of the agency’s leadership.

Leisurely Weekends for KPK Staff

KPK’s performance has weakened since its law revision came into effect on October 17, with no sting operations performed in the past two months. Furthermore, wiretapping—the ultimate weapon for catching corrupt government officials—has not been performed at full capacity. A number of cases are predicted to go unresolved under the new leadership. The KPK is no longer a feared institution.

House Wishes to Restrict the KPK

The DPR is quietly making efforts to revise the KPK law while the selection process for the anti-corruption commission’s leadership is ongoing. With articles to restrict its authorities, the KPK is already in a precarious position. The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle had already prepared the revision for some time and now has the agreement of all political parties.

Twenty-Eight Months Later

The investigation into the acid attack on Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigator, Novel Baswedan, that took place on Tuesday morning, April 11, 2017, has yet to yield meaningful discoveries. The police have not found the executors, let alone the mastermind of the attack. National Police Chief Gen. Tito Karnavian formed a joint fact-finding team, but again with disappointing results. President Joko Widodo has given the police a three-month deadline to solve the case.
