INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- President Joko Widodo expressed his disappointment because there are government officials who are again suspected of being involved in bribery and corruption.

"Yes it is very disappointing and I need to remind all officials to not do it again," said President met after photo exhibition Infrastructure Development In Photos in Silang Monas, Jakarta on Sunday (27/08/2017)

According to the President, he has repeatedly submitted to all ministers in the Working Cabinet to improve the work system in eradicating the potential for criminal acts of corruption.

In addition, the President also warned that corruption could occur due to lack of integrity and morality of a number of ministry officials or state institutions.

"Try, how many have been arrested either OTT (hand-catch operation red) by KPK or saber pungli, it's not tens, hundreds or maybe even thousands," said President.

The President said it was related to the Operation of Capture of the Hand conducted by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on allegations of corruption related to the licensing and procurement of projects within the Directorate General of Sea Transportation (Hubla) Fiscal Year 2016-2017

During the operation on Wednesday (23/8), the KPK secured five people, namely Antonius Director General Marine Communications Tonny Budiono (ATB), Commissioner of PT Adhi Guna Keruktama (AGK) Adiputra Kurniawan (APK), Finance Manager of PT AGK S, Director PT AGK DG, and Head of Sub Directorate of Dredging and Reclamation W.

KPK secures cash and Card Automated Teller Machine (ATM) with a total value of Rp20 billion.

Earlier in October 2016, Operation Eradication of Pungli (OPP) also arrested six perpetrators consisting of several officers from the Directorate General of Sea Transportation, and then one broker related to the seawallers and letters.

In the arrest, the Police secured the money amounting to Rp60 million and in the holding deposit of Rp1.2 billion.
