The number of corruption cases from January to June 2010 doubled compared to the figure for the same period last year with private company directors taking the top spot as perpetrators.

Data from the Indonesian Corruption Watch shows that 176 corruption cases involving losses of more than Rp. 2 trillion have surfaced with 441 individuals named as suspects by law enforcement officials.

The main actors in corruption cases have shifted from legislative members with 63 suspects in 2009 to directors in private companies with 61 suspects in 2010.

"This shows that the orientation of the private sector is still restricted to making the largest profits possible by employing various means," said ICW senior researcher Febri Hendri.

The data also shows that the main mode of corruption has shifted from misuse of budgetary funds, with 32 cases in 2009, to embezzlement, with 62 cases this year.

Febri added that the embezzlement by government officials and other individuals involved social aid funds during the local elections in 2008 and 2009.

"We will present our findings to law enforcement institutions such as the attorney's general office, the police and the Corruption Eradication Commission," he added.
