“I do solemnly swear by Allah to uphold the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia by all means, and to execute all laws and regulations in the fairest way possible and dedicate myself to the service of the people, the state, and the nation. I will maintain my integrity, will not abuse my authority and avoid myself from committing misdeeds,” the newly-inaugurated BNPT Head said.
Then, he signed the inauguration ceremony minutes and received congratulations from President Jokowi and guests attending the ceremony.
For the record, Boy Rafli Amar,- who served as Deputy Chief of the Police’s Education and Training Institute- was chosen to replace former BNPT Head Suhardi Alius who was transferred to the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Agency as Senior Policy Analyst. (TGH/EN)
