Focus on people: the report of the governance audit of the public prosecution service of the republic of Indonesia
The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) of Indonesia consists of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO), the high public prosecution offices (HPPOs), and the district public prosecution offices (DPPOs). There is a HPPO in each provincial capital, and a DPPO is in each district capital. The PPS is one of the principal institutions responsible for law enforcement in Indonesia (in addition to the police and the judiciary). It formulates policy for criminal justice, determines whether to prosecute, and undertakes all prosecutions. It has powers to represent the State and the Government in civil and administrative matters and generally to provide legal advice to Government agencies. The PPS has also assumed additional responsibilities in connection with the Government’s anticorruption efforts following the economic crisis. As with other public institutions in Indonesia, however, the incidence of corruption, collusion, and nepotism in the PPS itself is high. Reforming the PPS to enhance its credibility and efficiency is essential for effective law enforcement and the administration of justice generally. The increased transparency, predictability, and accountability in the implementation and enforcement of public policies will facilitate economic activity in Indonesia and generally contribute to its recovery from the economic crisis.
