The Indonesian president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, says corruption is lingering in the nation's tax office and law enforcement institutions.

"About 70 percent of our state income passes through the tax sector. Fraud and abuse in the sector will significantly affect development and economic growth," President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said in his opening speech of the 2010 National Corruption Eradication Conference on Wednesday

"Unfortunately, corruption still exists," he added. He also voiced concern over corruption in law enforcement agencies such as the National Police and the Attorney General's Office.

"Prevent and eradicate corruption practices committed by law enforcement officers! Can you imagine? Law enforcement agencies are supposed to be on the front line - but they themselves have committed the offense." Yudhoyono said.

Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) activist Emerson Yuntho said the Yudhoyono needed to prove his words by taking proactive measures. "As president, he could do so many things rather than just talking, if he is really disappointed in judicial corruption," Emerson said.
