SEMARANG - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has asked the Central Java Provincial Government to immediately arrange in order uncertified assets, which could open more opportunities for corruption.

“Collaboration between local governments, the National Land Agency, and related SOEs is important so that regional and SOE assets, which are normally in the form of land plots, can be kept in order and certified,” KPK Deputy Chair Nawawi Pomolango said in an official statement as quoted from CNN Indonesia, Tuesday (14/7).

According to Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo, regional assets often pose potential misappropriation, and thus KPK’s request is an opportunity to find a solution regarding regional asset management.

Currently the Central Java Provincial Government has 10,225 plots of assets worth Rp 13.4 trillion. Of the amount, 7,455 plots are certified.

“The remaining 2,770 are still uncertified, consisting  of 950 irrigation channels, 1,352 bridges, and 468 road networks,” Mr Pranowo said. (MS)
