Dendi Nurdin Purnomo’s career, former Head of the Batam City Environment Service (DLH) as the State Civil Apparatus (ASN) in the Batam Government was soon to be stopped. Although now reportedly free after serving his sentence, Dendi could not return to work in Batam City Government.
At the trial some time ago, the Tanjungpinang District Court judges sentenced Dendi to 1 year 3 months in prison. He was also required to pay a fine of Rp 50 million, a subsidiary of 1 month in prison. Dendi was legally and convincingly declared guilty of violating Article 5 paragraph 2 of Law Number 20 of 2001 as amended by Law No. 31 of 1999 concerning the eradication of corruption.
Now that it’s free, its status is still a civil servant. However, with the existence of a Circular from the government, his service was threatened to stop. Besides Dendi, officials in Batam who will be stopped are Fadillah Malarangan, former Director of Embung Fatimah Regional General Hospital (RSUD), and Raja M Rizal, former Treasurer at the Batam City Social Service.
In addition, there are a number of other ASNs who have stumbled on corruption cases and have already done so, will also have the same fate. Obtained at the latest on November 30, they will get a decree (SK) regarding dismissal as ASN.
Regional Secretary (Sekda) of Batam City, Jefridin said, Batam City Government had received a reply from the State Personnel Agency (BKN) related to the Minister of Home Affairs Circular for the dismissal of ASN tripping over corruption and the case had already been made.
“There is already a letter. The point is to dismiss all. Must be dismissed,” said Jefridin, after attending the national santri day ceremony in the Engku Putri Batam Plain on Monday (10/22/2018).
Jefridin did not want to specify who the name was. He also did not confirm the exact number. “Not memorized,” he said. The problem they did not accept with the decision, continued Jefridin, was another matter. They were also invited to take legal action.
“Especially for Batam at the latest on November 30, the SK (dismissal) will be issued,” said Jefridin. At present, the party has already begun to make a decree regarding the dismissal. “It has been made a decree. Depending on sir, you will later when it’s time,” he said.
Previously reported, there were more than 10 cases of ASN involved in corruption. Some have already made it, some have not. He said the commitment, for the dismissal of ASN which was involved in corruption and had already been made, would be completed in 2018 as the circular letter of the Minister of Home Affairs.
“If not, the regional head is subject to sanctions to other officials,” said Jefridin.
Member of the Batam City DPRD, Udin P Sihaloho responded positively to the circular letter of the Minister of Home Affairs, Tjahjo Kumolo, to the regional leaders, relating to the dismissal of the ranks of the State Civil Apparatus (ASN) who were convicted of corruption, and had received a permanent decision from the court.
“With the release of this Minister of Home Affairs circular letter, we hope to further affirm and strengthen the mayor to act,” said Udin.
