Indonesia has been hit by a series of corruption scandals whereby several leading officials have been accused of wrongdoing.
The latest allegation came against the former Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo. Earlier this month, the Indonesian Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested Limpo in his apartment in south Jakarta for suspected corruption and extortion while in office. His case is still ongoing.
Limpo sparked public debate as he was scheduled to arrive in Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, on October 1 after seeking medical treatment abroad. However, he had been missing for several days and returned after the Nasdam Party Chairman Surya Paloh urged him to come home.
