TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Employees of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) will hold a discussion today upon commemorating the 500-days of the attack against KPK investigator Novel Baswedan which has passed without shedding any light upon the case.
The commemoration was held as a symbolic move to push President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to solve the numerous terror cases against justice workers that include the late Munir Said Thalib and Novel Baswedan.
“We hope the president would give his utmost attention upon solving the attack made against activists of justice in Indonesia and guarantee that the cases will be rightfully handled,” said KPK workers’ Union Head Yudi Purnomo in a written statement on Wednesday.
Yudi explained that Novel is not the only KPK employee that had received numerous terror threats and revealed at least 10 instances that targeted KPK employees. The discussion entitled #500HariDibiarkanButa or “500 days left in the dark” will be held at the KPK supporting building today on November 1.
