Many people wonder how KPK catches red-handedly the suspects in bribery/extortion cases, or how KPK manages to detect corruption cases even before they happen. Does KPK install thousands of cameras to monitor all government officials every day? Or perhaps, planting millions of microphones to help KPK eavesdrop on procurement processes in all regions?
The success of KPK in arresting corruptors is a result of public participation and awareness in reporting corruption cases. KPK strongly relies on public participation to provide information or report on corruption crime (TPK) allegations around them. Valid information accompanied by strong supporting evidence will greatly assist KPK in corruption case investigations.
