jpnn.com, JAKARTA – The Ombudsman of the Republic of Indonesia (ORI) found allegations of maladministration in the national insight test (TWK) process against Novel Baswedan Cs regarding the transfer of status to state civil apparatus (ASN) at the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

The findings were then forwarded by the Ombudsman to the leadership of the KPK, the Head of BKN, and President Joko Widodo.

Criminal law expert Suparji Ahmad said the Ombudsman’s findings confirmed the suspicion that something was wrong with the KPK’s National Insight Test (TWK).

“The RI Ombudsman’s statement shows that the TWK was indeed problematic from the start. Because there was no clear information from the start, starting from who made the questions, to the size of passing or not,” said Suparji in a statement to JPNN.com, Thursday (22/7).

Regarding these findings, the Ombudsman gave four recommendations to the leadership and the Secretary General of the anti-corruption agency.

One of them, asked the KPK leadership to transfer the status of 75 employees who did not pass the TWK to become state civil servants (ASN) employees before October 30, 2021.

The Al-Azhar University academic hopes that the leadership and the Secretary General of the KPK will follow up on the recommendation from the Indonesian Ombudsman.

“Some inputs from the Indonesian Ombudsman should be realized. Considering that 75 people who did not qualify were clearly disadvantaged by this TWK,” said Suparji.
