DPR Starts Fit-and-Proper Test for Police Chief Candidate Badrodin Haiti
Jakarta. Commission III of the House of Representatives, or DPR, has started conducting its fit-and-proper test of Cmr. Gen. Badrodin Haiti, who is in line to become Indonesia’s next National Police chief.
Members of the commission, which oversees legal, human rights and security affairs, visited Badrodin at his home on Thursday, where the three-star general told news portal Tempo.co commission they would “check on” his family.
He is scheduled to undergo another assessment on Thursday.
Badrodin was nominated as National Police chief under controversial circumstances earlier this year. Former candidate Cmr. Gen. Budi Gunawan was dropped by President Joko Widodo after the Corruption Eradication Commission, or KPK, named him a graft suspect.
Budi’s suspect status was later invalidated by a court, but the damage was done. Badrodin was nominated to end the controversy sparked by Joko’s controversial choice of Budi for the role of Indonesia’s top cop.
