Introduction
Indonesian President Megawati Soekarnoputrihas supported her Minister of Forestry andstated that “. . . we must give our forests achance to take a breath”. But tacit support isnot enough because no Minister alone has thepower to fight the deep cancer destroying allparts of Indonesia’s fragile future – corruption.The President must personally ensure thather government acts against timber barons suchas Peoples’ Consultative Assembly (MPR)member Abdul Rasyid whose company standsaccused of being behind the destruction of Tanjung Puting National Park, transportingillegal logs, bribery, kidnap and violence.Without such figures being prosecuted and jailed for their crimes there is no hope orreason for underpaid officials to refuse a bribe.Although poverty, economic collapse,provincial autonomy and many other factorscontribute to forest destruction, these are not atthe core of the problem. Forests are beingdestroyed because Indonesia is one of the mostcorrupt countries in the world and many in thepolitical, business and military elite are unwillingto surrender the wealth and power thatIndonesia’s natural resources have given them.If being measured as one of the most corruptcountries in the world alongside Kenya and worsethan Azerbaijan were not bad enough news for
Pengantar
Presiden Indonesia Megawati Soekarnoputritelah mendukung Menteri Kehutanan danmenyatakan bahwa “. . . kita harus memberikesempatan kepada hutan kita untuk bernapas”. Namun dukungan tanpa tindakantidaklah cukup, karena Menteri seorang diritidak memiliki kekuasaan untuk memerangikanker parah yang merusak seluruh sendi masadepan Indonesia yang rentan, yaitu korupsi.Presiden secara personal harus memastikanbahwa pemerintahannya mengambil tindakanterhadap cukong kayu seperti Abdul Rasyid,anggota MPR, yang perusahaannya beradadibalik perusakan Taman Nasional TanjungPuting, pengangkutan kayu ilegal, penyuapan,penculikan dan kekerasan. Bila tokoh sepertidia tidak dituntut dan dipenjarakan ataskejahatan-kejahatan yang dilakukan, makatidak ada harapan atau alasan bagi petugasbergaji kecil untuk menolak uang suap.Walaupun kemiskinan, kehancuranekonomi, otonomi propinsi dan banyak faktorlainnya berperan dalam perusakan hutan,namun semua itu bukanlah akarpermasalahannya. Perusakan hutan terjadikarena Indonesia adalah salah satu negara yangpaling korup di dunia, di mana banyak elitpolitik, bisnis dan militer tidak mau melepaskekayaan dan kekuasaan yang mereka peroleh
