COMMENTARY: The historiography of corruption [in Indonesia].  "The wide debate over the plan to revise the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Law is intrinsically linked to the history of corruption in Indonesia. Corruption is a result of the permissive culture that affects law enforcers. During this time, the verdict handed down by the judges to corruptors has tended to be mild. After serving their sentences, corruptors do not stop stealing money from the country."
