    Title : Bribery, sextortion for public services rampant in Indonesia: Survey
    By : Budi Sutrisno

    [Many Indonesians have admitted to bribing public officials or experiencing sextortion when accessing public services in the past year, a recent survey conducted by antigraft organization Transparency International Indonesia (TII) has found. On Thursday, TII launched the 2020 Global Corruption Barometer (GCB), which observes public opinion on corruption practices in Asia from March 2019 to September 2020, involving 20,000 respondents from 17 countries. In Indonesia, the survey involved 1,000 respondents from 28 provinces, with data collected between June 15 and July 24.

    The results found that the level of bribery for public services in Indonesia was the third-highest in Asia, after India and Cambodia.

      I am already more than 20 years in Indonesia , and from what I heard from some Indonesians are :

      - similar behavior is being practiced by public school teachers/employees (students' parents being pressed to pay for unnecessary trips to other cities , obliged to buy school's uniform , parents being told there is no vacancies when in reality there is/are , ...) ,

      - in some cases the people themselves choose to pay "extra" fee for easily getting the documents they need (sometimes without the total required documents) ,

      - Government officers sometimes intentionally require more documents (and/or actions) than necessary , inducing people to bribe .

      Some Government Departments started to offer online services (one of the reasons is probably to avoid bribery) but in some cases the procedures are also more difficult than necessary .

        Hey guys, I just read this article about bribery and sextortion in Indonesia and it's disheartening to hear that this is still a major issue. No one should have to bribe or be subjected to sextortion just to access basic public services. It's important to fight against corruption and hold those responsible accountable. While it's not a direct solution, being aware of the tactics used in bribery and sextortion can help prevent these crimes. Check out for some tips and info on how to stop these practices. Let's work together to create a more fair and just society for all. #SayNoToCorruption #StopSextortion?
