Deputi chairman of KPK Laode Muhammad Syarif stated that all parties should have commitment to make effort in the rescue of Indonesian natural resources and in the eradication of corruption in it.
"KPK puts more emphasize on the level of prevention, so there will be no more overlapping of licenses or illegal mining that are free to operate. All must be curbed until there will be no more corruption in it," he pointed out.
