Jakarta, IO – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Friday (19/8) arrested University of Lampung (Unila) rector Karomani for allegedly accepting bribes in the admission process for the 2022 academic year.
Karomani is alleged to have received up to Rp5 billion to help prospective students secure seats through the so-called “independent pathway” scheme.
This raised question about the fate of students who got admitted through bribery. What consequences will they face?
“What is the status of the students whose parents were revealed to have bribed university officials? Now, this is interesting. There should be consequences, right, because they got admitted through illegal means, by bribing,” said KPK deputy Alexander Marwata at a press conference on Tuesday (22/8), Detik reported.
Therefore, Alex asked those students to be sanctioned so it can create a deterrent effect for other universities across the country.
