Indonesian judges have a bad reputation. Several including Commercial Court IP judges have been caught red handed taking bribes. Indonesia Corruption Watch, an NGO, expressed doubt about whether the raise would have the desired effect. Social media and other comments have also been skeptical.
But there is no doubt that absurdly low salaries were part of the problem. Of course some bad behaviours will not change overnight. But lets hope that in 12 months time, the practice of asking lawyers in one by one to 'discuss' the case with the judges, in the hope of receiving a thick envelope, will be significantly rarer.
