No Tolerance for Bombing Terror Acts, President Jokowi Says
Date 10 Januari 2019
President Joko Jokowi Widodo has instructed Head of the Indonesian National Police (Kapolri) General Tito Karnavian to investigate bomb attack against two commissioners of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Agus Rahardjo and Laode M. Sharif.
I have ordered the Kapolri to solve the case because this is intimidation against our law enforcers. We can’t tolerate this. Hunt down and find the perpetrators, the President told the journalists in Jakarta, Thursday (10/1).
President Jokowi added that security measures for investigators and commissioners of the KPK will be improved and the bomb attack will not hamper corruption eradication progress.
As previously reported, a fake bomb on Wednesday (9/1) was reported at the private residence of Chairman of the KPK Agus Rahardjo, while two Molotov cocktails were found at the private residence of Laode M. Syarif, a KPK commissioner. No causalities were reported in the bomb attack. (DNA/AGG/ES)
