JAKARTA - The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) emphasized that there were no dismissals of 75 employees who did not pass the National Insight Test (TWK) assessment as a condition of becoming a state civil apparatus (ASN).
"The KPK cannot fire employees who are declared ineligible," Firli said in a press conference at the KPK's Red and White House, Kuningan Persada, South Jakarta, Wednesday, May 5.
He said that the dismissal of KPK employees must be carried out based on applicable regulations. The anti-graft commission has never discussed the dismissal of those who did not pass the assessment.
"The KPK has never spoken out about dismissing people with disrespect. Nothing, because the KPK really understands that the KPK is implementing the law and running it straight," he said.
The former KPK Deputy for Enforcement will reveal the names of dozens of these employees.
"We will convey the name through the secretary general after the decision letter is issued," said Firli.
He admitted that he did not know the names of the 75 people who failed the test. The KPK leadership only counted the total people who passed and failed when the test result document was opened.
The KPK also cannot spread names of employees carelessly. This is considered to cause a commotion. "We don't want to spread rumors," he said.
Previously reported, the KPK is working with the State Personnel Agency (BKN) to conduct an assessment of national insight for its employees.
It's just that recently it was reported that a number of employees did not qualify so they were said to be fired. One of the rumors was Novel Baswedan's senior investigator.
