Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati has instructed her subordinates to name Finance Ministry officials who have failed to submit official wealth reports (LHKPN) to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to prove their integrity.
KPK data reveals that the highest level of compliance was found at ministries and state institutions, with the Finance Ministry listed among the top, while the lowest level of compliance was found at regional representative councils (DPRDs).
The Finance Ministry has a 99.4 percent rate of electronic official wealth report submission. However, 163 of its 29,806 officials have yet to submit reports to the KPK.
“I want their names and positions. I promised Pak Agus [KPK chairman] that the Finance Ministry would be 100 percent compliant,” Sri Mulyani said in a speech on Tuesday during an event aimed at raising awareness on reporting wealth.
For recently transferred or promoted officials, the ministry has given them two months to report their wealth. Other ministry officials have been given three days to comply.
KPK chairman Agus Rahardjo said he appreciated the commitment by Sri Mulyani and the Finance Ministry for reaching almost 100 percent compliance, adding that the KPK would continue to raise awareness among ministry and institution employees. (tas)
