Constitutional Court (MK) chief justice Mahfud MD has called for the dismissal and replacement of all law enforcement officials so the nation’s judicial institutions can be freed from the influence of long-standing corruption.

“The old organization bears the burden of past corruption. Therefore, the judicial institutions sabotage each other,” he said during an experts panel discussion, themed “Law, Justice and Social Order” in Jakarta, on Friday.

“Judicial institutions are able to hold each other hostage because they know about each other’s scandals,” Mahfud was quoted by Antara news agency.

Therefore, he suggested that all law enforcement officials be dismissed and replaced with new officials.

“Some countries have already taken such steps in order to form a new organization that is free from the influences of the past,” Mahfud pointed out.

Talking about state institutions formed only few years ago such as the MK, Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the Judicial Commission (KY), Mahfud said: “They have been functioning quite well”.
