Media monitor launches Indonesialeaks on corruption

Media monitor launches Indonesialeaks to report on corruption

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

By Chitra Paramaesti
JAKARTA (Tempo/Pacific Media Watch): The Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW), in collaboration with Indonesian mass media, has launched a whistleblower platform, called Indonesialeaks, for the public to report on acts of corruption.

“We refer to the legality basis related to corruptions defined in the Anticorruption Law,” ICW coordinator Adnan Topan Husodo said during the launch event on December 14.

According to Adnan, the ICW will guarantee the anonymity of people who report any corruption acts.

“Regarding the security issue, we have the code of ethics. We can’t reveal information to anyone,” he said.

Adnan hopes that the public will participate in the corruption eradication effort. He pointed out that the state has not appreciated people who reveal corruption practices.

“We’re not talking about money, but appreciations. For instance, a civil servant who reveals a corruption practice should be rewarded with a promotion. Therefore, we can be aware of corruption practices,” Adnan explained.

Indonesialeaks is an independent platform founded by 10 mass media outlets and five non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

The platform allows the public to submit data or documents related to public interests anonymously. The media outlets will verify the data or documents in light of journalism aspects.

Institutions participating in the launch of Indonesialeaks are Tempo, CNN Indonesia, KBR, Bisnis Indonesia, Independen.id, Jaring, Suara.com, the Jakarta Post, Sindo Weekly, Liputan 6, ICW, LBH Pers, Change.org, Greenpeace, Auriga, PPMM, and Free Press Unlimited.
