Indonesia's anti-corruption chief arrested for murder

Only in Indonesia would this happen.

It is widely known that Indonesia is still one of the world's most corrupt countries. How corrupt, you ask? Well try this: the head of the Corruption Eradication Commission, Antasari Azhar, has been arrested on suspicion of murder of a prominent state company official.

The drive-by shooting of businessman Nasrudin Zulkarnaen was reportedly due to a love triangle involving the two men and a 22-year old golf caddy.

Azhar claims innocence, implying it is a frame-up, orchestrated by one of the many enemies he has made while fighting corruption. Which is not hard to believe either.

The government may need to form a Corruption Eradication Commission for the Corruption Eradication Commission.
