Mr Khairiansyah Salman is an auditor at the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) in Indonesia who revealed grand corruption in the procurement activities of the General Election Commission and then exposed the bribery of the Commission’s members. This act angered the head of the BPK and Mr Salman was accused of violating the code of conduct. He was then openly accused in the media of entrapping the Commission member to bribe him. Mr Salman who is protected under the Corruption Eradication Commission’s witness protection scheme (KPK) is now working with the Aceh and Nias Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Agency (BRR). His cooperation with the KPK has enabled the Commission to uncover a US$2.1 million scandal in the General Electoral Commission which involved virtually all of its members.

Nominated by TI Indonesia, Mr Salman received a 2005 Integrity Award in recognition of his extraordinary courage in revealing corruption at the Indonesian Electoral Commission.
