The task force is planned to be filled by 44 former KPK employees who have been appointed as ASN Polri.
Head of Public Information Bureau (Karopenmas) Public Relations Division of Police Brig. Gen. Pol Ahmad Ramadhan said the formation of Task Force Tipikor was a temporary placement for Novel Baswedan and friends before serving in the National Police’s Corruption Eradication Corps (Kortas Tipidkor) which is currently in the process of forming.
“While waiting for that (Kortas Tipidkor) will be created by the Task Force to Prevent Corruption. Later these friends will be placed there,” Ramadan confirmed in Jakarta, Thursday (07/01/2022).

According to him, in the early stages, Kortas Polri was formed at the level of the Police Headquarters first, after which it will be formed at the territorial level.
“Kortas Tipidkor will be made. So the discourse of Kortas Tipidkor of course friends of former KPK employees will be placed there, “he said.
