Hanoi (VNA) - Indonesia's parliament voted unanimously on September 17 to approve amendments to a law governing the country's Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

The proposed changes include placing the agency under the oversight of an independent board which would have the right to decide whether the KPK could run wiretaps.

The reforms have alarmed anti-corruption activists, who fear they are meant to weaken the agency.

Having successfully prosecuted hundreds of politicians and officials since its establishment in 2002, the KPK has become one of the country’s most respected agencies.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has thirty days to sign the new law./.
