JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The results of a survey from the Indonesian Survey Agency (LSI) revealed the growing pessimism in fighting corruption in Indonesia.

More Indonesians have a negative view of anti-corruption efforts, measures to prevent corrupt practices as well as adequate punishment for corruptors.

“The decline is sharp. This can be a signal for us all in that the public is seeing a pessimistic trend in terms of preventing the practice and punishing corruptors,” said LSI Executive Director  Djayadi Hanan.
