The Home Ministry on Tuesday appointed North Sumatra deputy governor Tengku Erry Nuradi as acting governor of the province, in a selection based on Home Ministerial Decree No.122.12/4357/SC, dated Aug.10, 2015.

'€œWe are present here to hand over a letter appointing deputy governor Erry as North Sumatra acting governor. Through this appointment, we want to make sure that the organization of the North Sumatra'€™s administration can run smoothly,'€ the Home Ministry'€™s regional autonomy director general Sumarsono told journalists at the North Sumatra governor'€™s office on Tuesday.

He said the ministry issued the appointment letter after it received a letter from the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), letter No.N7713/0123/08/2015 dated Aug.4, 2015, regarding the detainment of North Sumatra governor Gatot Pujo Nugroho as a graft suspect.

Last week, the KPK detained Gatot and his second wife Evi Susanty after it named them as suspects in a bribery case involving judges at the Medan State Administrative Court. (ebf)(++++)
