Police Commissioner General Susno Duadji (55) is currently the most popular Policeman in Indonesia today.
But unlike most public officers who gained popularity when they were serving offices, Susno became popular after he resigned on November 2009.
Before that he was so unpopular due to his hostility to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in which he dubbed the KPK as Gecko, and the Police as Crocodile, implying that the former is weaker than the later. This remark was made after KPK learned about his connections with Corruption Cases investigated by KPK, a.o the mysterious 6,7 Trillion Rupiah Bailout of Bank Century and Anggoro Wijaya case.
After he resigned, Susno revealed undisclosed Police information to the public a.o by testifying against the Prosecution in the Court trial of former Chief of KPK Antasari Azhar, about middlemen in the handling of Police and Taxation cases that involve high ranking Police officers and the Tax Office. Some of the Taxmen and the middlemen have been arrested
Yesterday, Susno was arrested by the Police on charges of Corruption and receiving Bribes. This arrest was protested by the Chief of the Constitutional Court and non-government organizations.
I hope that Susno's case would be processed according to laws based on the principle of presumption of innocence.
