Needed, such an Anti-Corruption Agency, a "Sharp-Fanged Outfit"

"One major reason for this difference is the KPK. Since it began operating in 2004, the KPK has investigated and prosecuted well over 300 cases, including dozens of members of Parliament, ministers, heads of government agencies, governors, mayors, judges and police officers.
