DPR's Commission III, KPK hold closed-door hearing

Jakarta (ANTARA) - Members of Commission III of the House of Representatives (DPR) held a closed-door hearing with the leadership and the Corruption Eradication Commission's (KPK's) Supervisory Board at the KPK Building, here, Tuesday.

"This is a closed-door meeting, as several members might pose sensitive questions. Hence, it should not be misinterpreted outside," Chairman of DPR's Commission III, Herman Hery, expounded.

The DPR members usually hold a hearing at the Parliament Building, though this time, they decided to organize a hearing at the KPK building, as it is new and the legislators were keen to see first-hand the available facilities and check the detention rooms there.

Furthermore, the existing regulation stipulates that the DPR is free to hold meetings at the Parliament Building or at any other location. Hence, it was nothing unusual to organize a hearing at the KPK building, he affirmed.

The Commission will cooperate with the KPK in its efforts to strengthen the anti-graft agency, he emphasized.

Hery said he would leave it to the Commission III's members to pose any queries to the KPK.
