KPK Entrusts President Jokowis Sandalwood Horses to Bogor Presidential Palace
Date 12 Maret 2018
Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) entrusted two Sandalwood Horses reported by President Joko Jokowi Widodo in gratification report to be kept in Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java as the horses are now owned by the State.
The KPK doesnt have any facilities to keep living animals, so we entrust the horses to be used for educational purposes, KPK’s Gratification Director Giri Suprapdiono said at the Bogor Presidential Palace, West Java, on Monday (12/3).
Giri continued that the two horses were reported by President Jokowi in gratification report after the President was gifted (with two horses), in Sumbawa, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).
Deputy for Protocol, Press, and Media of the Secretariat of the President, Bey Machmudin accompanying Giri Suprapdiono on that occasion asserted that the two horses are declared state-owned by the KPK and Directorate General of State Assets Management on 11 October 2017. However, the KPK can not keep living animals, so they are handed to the Bogor Presidential Palace.
Also on that occasion, Giri appreciated President Jokowi for his excellent example in reporting gratification.
By the end of 2017, on the International Anti-Corruption Day, we awarded (the President) as reporter with the greatest gratification value. Gratification reported by the President in 2017 amounted to Rp58 billion, Giri concluded. (*/ES) (RAS/MMB/Naster)
