KP2KKN Requests President Suspend Rembang District Head

Based on the President’s precedent of removing corruption suspect Angelina Sondakh from official positions in the President’s Democrat Party, KP2KKN suggested that the President also suspend the Rembang District Head, Moch Salim, who is also head of the Democrat Party’s District Office.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), who is also Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Democrat Party (PD), has dismissed Angelina Sondakh from her party positions.  Angelina previously served as Deputy Secretary General of the Democrat Party. During the broadcast of her removal on Sunday (5/2), SBY stated that cadres accused of corruption will be dismissed.  …

KP2KKN activist, Eko Haryanto said the President also had to suspend the Democrat Party official currently actively serving as Rembang District Head, Mohamad Salim. As is known, Salim has been named as a suspect of alleged corruption involving the Rembang Rising Prosperity Company (PT. RBSJ) since 2009.

“There is no serious sanctions of party cadres involved in corruption. As a result, corruption continues to flourish and continues to regenerate itself. Many members of the council and the regional head are suspected of corruption,” said Eko Haryanto, Tuesday (7/2).

Eko hopes for consistency from the Democrat Party, especially since SBY spoke on Sunday (5/2) ago. “There should be no discrimination. Salim as Chairman of the Democrat Party’s DPC for Rembang District should be removed.  The Democrat [Party] does not have to wait a long time, ” said Eko. According to Eko, there are two things that SBY must do: suspend Salim and issue the presidential permission to allow the examination of Salim to proceed.

Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) yang juga Ketua Dewan Pembina Partai Demokrat (PD) telah memberhentikan Angelina Sondakh dari kepengurusan partai Demokrat. Sebelumnya Angelina menjabat sebagai Wakil Sekjen Partai Demokrat. Dalam pencopotan yang disiarkan Minggu (5/2) lalu, SBY menyatakan kader yang menjadi tersangka korupsi akan diberhentikan.  …

Aktivis KP2KKN, Eko Haryanto mengatakan SBY juga harus memberhentikan salah satu pengurus Partai Demokrat Kabupaten Rembang yang saat ini menjadi aktif menjabat Bupati Kabupaten Rembang, Mohamad Salim. Diketahui, Salim telah ditetapkan sebagai tersangka dugaan korupsi penyertaan modal PT Rembang Bangkit Sejahtera Jaya (RBSJ) sejak tahun 2009.

“Tidak ada sanksi serius dari partai kepada kadernya yang terlibat korupsi. Akibatnya, korupsi terus tumbuh subur bahkan teregenerasi terus menerus. Banyak anggota dewan dan kepala daerah yang dicatut menjadi tersangka korupsi,” kata Eko Haryanto, Selasa (7/2).

Eko mengharapkan konsistensi Partai Demokrat, khususnya SBY dengan yang telah diucapkan Minggu (5/2) lalu. “Tidak boleh ada diskriminasi. Salim selaku Ketua DPC Partai Demokrat Kabupaten Rembang harus dicopot. Demokrat tidak perlu menunggu waktu lama,” kata Eko. Menurut Eko, ada dua hal yang harus dilakukan SBY. Yakni mencopot Salim dan menerbitkan surat izin pemeriksaan atas Salim.
