    TEMPO.CO, JakartaCorruption Eradication Commission (KPK) senior investigator Novel Baswedan visited the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) Office in Central Jakarta, Monday, May 24, 2021. He came to the KPK Office together with a number of KPK employees who failed the Civic Knowledge Test (TWK).

    They arrived at around 12:30 local time and headed straight to the room on the 3rd floor of the commission’s building to report the alleged human rights violations in the test.

    The test was one of the requirements for the anti-graft body's employees to become state civil apparatuses (ASN). Seventy five employees, including Novel, did not pass the test, which later came into limelight given the many irregularities in its implementation and questions.

    Other than Novel, KPK's Employee Organization (WP) Head Yudi Purnomo was also present. He handed over a bundle of documents to Komnas HAM Commissioner M. Choirul Anam. Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (YLBHI) Chairperson Asfinawati was also present.

    Before submitting the report, Novel and KPK employees were seen taking pictures with a number of Komnas HAM commissioners.

    Komnas HAM reportedly will hold a press conference regarding the report submitted by Novel Baswedan and other KPK employees who have failed the TWK.
