The team worked under the dir­ ec­tion of the Attorney-­General, who decided which cases it would pursue and selected its members prim­arily from the ranks of police and prosecutors. The Joint Team appeared doomed to fail, for several reasons. As Assegaf (2002: 135–6) explains, it was drastically underfunded – indeed, during its first few months the gov­ern­ment gave it no funding or facilities. Its members remained active in their every­day jobs, leaving them with insufficient time to devote to the team’s work.

In the meantime, the TGPTK-­led pro­secu­tion of the three judges was thrown out of court in highly ques­tion­able pre-­trial (pra-­peradilan) proceedings. Article 77 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allows suspects and potential Corruption, the KPK and the ACC 21 defendants to challenge, in pre-­trial proceedings, on narrowly defined grounds, the legality of arrests, detentions or seizures (Fitzpatrick 2008: 505–6). ) The court prob­ably lacked jurisdiction to adju­dic­ate the applica­tion. The judges’ claim – that the Joint Team lacked the authority to investigate them – falls well outside the Article 77 grounds under which pre-­trial proceedings can be brought.

Statutes were passed requiring the estab­lishment of the KPK and its precursors, including the so-­called ‘Joint Team’ and the State Officials Asset Auditing Commission. I now turn to discuss these institutions, and the Ombudsman, whose mandate also includes corruption eradication. Corruption, the KPK and the ACC 19 State Officials Asset Auditing Commission (KPKPN) Law No 28 of 1999 on Clean and Corruption, Collusion and Nepotism-­free Governance (Penyelenggaraan Negara yang Bersih dan Bebas dari Korupsi, Kolusi dan Nepotisme) required all state officials to report their assets, and the assets of their spouses and chil­dren, before, during and after holding office (Article 5).
