The Jakarta Post
National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian is re-assigning 32 retiring police officers, including State Intelligence Agency (BIN) chief Gen. Budi Gunawan.
Budi is set to retire as a high-ranking officer at the National Police’s Security Intelligence Agency (Baintelkam), but will keep his post as BIN chief, according to a National Police statement released on Friday.
National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Muhammad Iqbal confirmed the reshuffle as part of the officers’ retirement.
“Budi will be retiring as an active officer, but he will remain as BIN chief because [the BIN position] is not based on his position at the National Police,” Iqbal said on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.
Among the re-assigned officers are senior officer Brig. Gen Didik Purnomo, senior officer Brig. Gen. Suprayitno and Insp. Gen. Arief Dharmawan. (nmn/ahw)
