President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo urged those who made the statement about corruption amounted to 25% of State Budget to file an official report to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

“If (the corruption of State Budget) is up to 25%, just report it to the KPK. That’s a huge fund,” President Jokowi said after attending the National Chinese New Year Celebration at the JI Expo Kemayoran, Jakarta, Thursday (7/2).

The President said that 25% of the State Budget means Rp500 trillion. He also recalled the previous statement in 2014 saying that the corruption of the State Budget was Rp7,200 trillion.

“File a report to the KPK with evidence and facts,” the President firmly said. (RSF/OJI/ES)
