Jakarta: Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chief Firli Bahuri visited the State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Ministry on Tuesday afternoon.
Firli and his entourage arrived at around 13.18 Western Indonesia Time (WIB). They were greeted by SOEs Minister Erick Thohir and Deputy SOEs Minister Kartika Wirdjoatmojo.
The ministry is currently trying to eradicate corruption in state-owned firms. It is one of Erick's goals as a newly-inaugurated minister.
Sebelumnya, pada awal menjabat Erick pernah menyampaikan akan melakukan bersih-bersih di lingkungan kementerian BUMN. Secara gamblang pernyataan tersebut dilontarkan usai serah terima jabatan.
"It is time to make them cleaner. This issue is imporant. Good corporate governance in SOES must not only be a lip service," Erick told reporters in October 2019.
"Many things have damaged the image of SOES," he added.
Erick recently reshuffled the leadership of several important state-owned firms. He recruited a lot of professional figures who have good track record.
