    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe National Civil Service Agency (BKN) Head Bima Haria Wibisana said information regarding the implementation process of the Civic Knowledge Test (TWK) for employees of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is state confidential.

    “The information is a state secret,” said Bima via a text message in Jakarta, Tuesday, June 15.

    Bima made the statement following a number of proposals related to the polemic of the TWK implementation for KPK employees to be state apparatus (ASN).

    BKN is asked to explain the process of the controversial nationalism test to those who question the test. It is also suggested to allow Ombudsman Indonesia to audit the process of the test.

    Bima underlined that the information related to the test process can only be disclosed by the court. “It can only be opened by the court,” he remarked.

    The discussions regarding the TWK of KPK employees are still afoot to date. Recently, many parties urged the anti-graft body to disclose the result of the test to the public. The KPK stated that it was still being coordinated with the BKN.

    As widely reported, the KPK announced that 51 of 75 employees who did not pass the nationalism test were dismissed.

    The Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) researcher, Kurnia Ramadhana, suspected that the TWK was just a ploy designed by KPK leaders to get rid of certain employees and that a number of institutions were believed to be involved in the conspiracy.
