RI Ombudsman COMMISSIONER Johanes Widijantoro assessed that it is not a dilemma if the regional head travels overseas for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic. What ever the motive, whether in official or health and fitness matters, the regional head is obliged to stick to recognized procedures.
In this scenario, no regional head is immune to the provisions of the overall health protocol. “All these matters have procedures. What is actually more, in the pandemic, everything has been tightened. Ought to be quarantined first and so on,” stated Johanes when contacted, Thursday (8/4).
His assertion was in reaction to the scenario of Papua Governor Lukas Enembe, who entered Papua New Guinea illegally. Based mostly on the Ombudsman’s point of watch, Lukas has committed maladministration in the kind of a procedural violation.

“The targeted visitors of people today from a single nation to yet another has principles. In basic perspective, it is apparent that he has committed a violation. What ever the rationale, it can’t be justified,” concluded Johanes.
The ombudsman will also make the Lukas Enembe scenario a person of the findings of regional head violations. They right away produced a report which was then used as evaluation product for long term advancements.
“Pertaining to sanctions, it is obvious that the President’s authority by means of the Minister of Household Affairs,” he reported. (OL-11)
