Corruption Eradication Commission (“KPK”), was held at Hotel Royal Ambarrukmo in
Yogyakarta, Indonesia from 26 to 28 July 2016. Twenty-one criminal justice
practitioners (investigators, prosecutors and officers of anti-corruption
agencies) from ten ASEAN countries participated in the seminar. Dr. Kim Han-Kyun, Director of the Center for
International Cooperation in Criminal Justice, Korean Institute of Criminology,

Prosecution Office, and Ms. Irene Putrie, Public Prosecutor of the KPK,

The main theme of this seminar was “Contemporary
Measures for Effective International Cooperation”. Each participant presented
actual cases in each country related to the main theme, and shared best
practices based on actual cases and discussed possible solutions to challenges faced
by each country. Also, the participants learned best practices and advanced
approaches for international cooperation from all over the world through
special lectures by Dr. Kim.
Some participants presented their efforts related to the extradition of
an accused of corruption offences by coordinating with law enforcement
agencies of other countries. Other participants presented examples of cooperation
among anti-corruption agencies in the ASEAN region and successful joint
operations in this regard. The presentations of all participants reflected
the current situation of anti-corruption practices in each country. After
each presentation, the participants eagerly exchanged opinions on the situation
of each country and sought possible solutions to challenges. The seminar
