Meanwhile for the discharged civil servants working for Ministries and Institutions, the most significant number are from Ministry of Transportation with 21 people, followed by Ministry of Finance of 15 people, he said, adding that this steps were taken to realize good governance in the country. All stakeholders including Ministers, Regional Heads, as well as Heads of Institutions must support the BKN, Ministry of Home Affairs, and Ministry of PANRB in carrying out their tasks and functions, Bambang continued.
Furthermore, Bambang added, Ministry of PANRB encouraged regional heads and institutions to immediately discharge all graft-convicted civil servants by the end of 2018, thus in 2019 there will be no more civil servants involved in corruption case.
Hopefully next year there will be no more civil servants involved in corruption, Bambang concluded. (Ministry of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform / ES)
