first_imgTurkish drone strikes in Syria’s Idlib province killed 19 regime soldiers on Sunday, a war monitor reported, as tensions soared between Damascus and Ankara.The 19 died in strikes on a military convoy in the Jabal al-Zawiya area and a base near Maaret al-Numan city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The report came hours after Turkey shot down two Syrian warplanes, in an escalating offensive against the Damascus regime in the country’s northwestern province of Idlib. Following weeks of violence in and around Idlib, Turkey confirmed the launch of a full military operation against Russian-backed Syrian forces after 34 Turkish soldiers died last week in an air strike blamed on Damascus.Tensions have intensified between rebel backer Turkey and the regime’s main ally Moscow, but Ankara has insisted it does not want to clash directly with Russian forces.The Syrian regime has vowed to retake the last opposition enclave in a nine-year civil war.Ankara has also pressured Europe over the conflict by opening its border for migrants already in Turkey to cross into the continent.The confrontation between Syrian forces and NATO-member Turkey has prompted worries over a wider conflict and a migrant crisis in Europe similar to that of 2015. Topics :last_img read more

first_img“Remember that corruption during disasters is punishable by death,” Firli said in a press statement Saturday.He invoked Article 2 of the 2001 Anticorruption Law, which states that the maximum penalty could be given under certain circumstances.No corruption convict in Indonesia has ever been given the death sentence. The decision to mete sentences is in the hands of the court, which has to take into account mitigating circumstances.Despite the government’s instructions last week for everyone to work from home, all KPK staffers, including investigators, will continue to work from their office in Kuningan, South Jakarta, Firli said. The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) wants the death penalty for people convicted of corruption during the COVID-19 outbreak, in a stark turnabout from its recent focus on prevention instead of actively pursuing investigations.According to KPK chairman Firli Bahuri, the agency will be going for the maximum penalty allowed under the law.With the government pouring Rp 62.3 trillion (US$3.9 billion) into nationwide measures to combat COVID-19 and launching social safety net programs, there are growing fears that much of that money could be embezzled. When he landed the position of KPK chairman in December 2019, the police commissioner general vowed to work on preventing corruption and fostering better coordination with government institutions, which previously had been the target of many KPK investigations.His new approach came with the new KPK Law enacted in October, which effectively took away much of the antigraft body’s independence and some of its more effective investigating tools, including wiretapping.Among the major projects initiated is the conversion of Wisma Atlet Kemayoran in Central Jakarta into a hospital and using two small islands in Riau Islands province to accommodate thousands of COVID-19 patients.Firli warned not to expect the KPK to conduct raids or sting operations to catch corruption suspects in the act, a method that proved effective in the past.“We understand that many critics want to see KPK raids and they want results,” he said, taking note of the declining public trust in his agency as shown by several recent surveys.“But we don’t conduct raids as a goal or a gimmick just to show that the KPK is working.” (mfp)Topics :last_img read more
