Corruption court gets a new office

Bali Regional Corruption Court moved on Tuesday into its new office building in Renon, an upscale administrative and residential area in south Denpasar.

Previously, the court conducted its affairs at the compound of Denpasar District Court. Hopefully, the verdicts issued by this court will be as good and authoritative as the physical quality of the court’s building. Regional corruption courts were established in provinces across Indonesia following a Constitutional Court ruling in 2006 stating that the corruption court in Jakarta lacked both the legal foundation and jurisdiction to process corruption cases from regions outside Jakarta. The court has tried two cases since its establishment. Its debut case related to the provincial transportation agency’s road signs development project, in which the state suffered a loss of Rp 942 million due to corruption.
