Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama has vowed to fire any civil servant found guilty of raping an intern at the Central Jakarta municipality office in Tanah Abang.
Ahok said Friday he had yet to receive a detailed report on the matter.
Accompanied by her family, a 17-year-old intern reported on Wednesday three civil servants to the Central Jakarta Police for allegedly raping her while she was working in the mayor’s office.
"We will surely any dismiss civil servants proven guilty of rape," Ahok said at City Hall on Friday.
He also said those on internships should work in a group, not individually, to reduce the potential of sexual assault.
“If you’re an intern, you should not be alone. There are a lot of interns, don’t ask for a room only for yourself because people can get the wrong idea. Interns should not work alone, should not work behind closed doors, everything should be open,” Ahok said.
All activities at the office are monitored by closed-circuit television (CCTV), he said.
