    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) officially requested the personnel supervisor official (PPK) to immediately terminate currently active civil servants (PNS) convicts of corruption cases.

    “It should affect the person’s employment such as a promotion and raise, which shall be terminated,” said KPK spokesman Febri Diansyah in Jakarta yesterday.

    However, Febri said that the civil servant in question should continue to receive their rightful wage until the person is rightfully an official termination of employment is issued.

    “The PPK should dishonorably discharge them. We ask the PPK to not be tolerant or compromise with people that indulge in corruption,” the KPK spokesman said.

    The National Civil Service Agency (BKN) recorded 2,357 active members that have been named as suspects of corruption, which the agency followed up by blocking the data of these personnel to avoid further state losses.

    According to the BKN Head Haria Wibisana, the agency found 2,674 civil servants named suspects of corruption where 317 of them have been dishonorably discharged. Meanwhile, 2,357 of them are currently still active civil servants. KPK has yet calculated the total losses endured by the country.
