  • TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Presidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko announced that people within the Cabinet have been delegated to handle unresolved cases of severe Human Rights violations.

    “The truth is, the President delegated his task to several of his assistants but it is not an easy task itself to handle cases that happened in the far past,” said Moeldoko at the Human Rights National Commission (Komnas HAM) on Tuesday, December 11.

    According to Moeldoko, President Jokowi appointed several known names such as Coordinating Minister of Political, Legal, and Security Affairs Wiranto and Attorney General Agung M. Prasetyo.

    “That is the condition we are at. The victims will certainly not accept it if we do not show our care. [Which is why] we accept them with open arms at the Presidential Palace,” Moeldoko continued; “It’s proven that President Jokowi’s administration has shown signs of caring toward this issue.”

    On May this year, the families of human rights violation victims acceded to President Jokowi’s invitation and were present at the palace to discuss unhandled human rights violation cases. It marked the first time both parties met after Jokowi took office four years prior.
