KPK Contributions: Students collected coins – a token but symbolic stand against perceived wrongful decisions by the authorities – in Denpasar on last week after it emerged that the parliament in Jakarta decided not to approve funds for a badly needed new headquarters for arguably one of the country’s most important, but embattled, institutions, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). Earlier this month the government approved funding of Rp226 billion for a new, larger building, but it was blocked this week by lawmakers, some of whom said they had not seen much progress by the KPK and therefore did not deserve the funds.
