Abstract


This paper aims to explain the connectivity of whistleblowing online system between the Witness and Victim Protection Agency (LPSK), the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), and 17 ministries/institutions that hasbeen established since 2017. The challenges raised in the implementation of the whistleblowing online system are discussed in line with a case of the Ministry of Marine and Fisheries Affairs, a non-participant ministry in the connectivity of whistleblowing online system. The reason for selecting this case is to provide a different view of how a non-aligned institution within the network undertakes efforts in eradicating corruption through whistleblowing system. The discussion still leaves several obstacles to achieving an effective whistleblowing system. These constraints include insecurity of mutation in remote areas due to reporting alleged frauds and a response to a fraudulent thatconsider reasonable. This article is intended to encourage further discussion and research regarding the implementation of whistleblowing online systems in government agencies in Indonesia.
