Medan (ANTARA) - Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Deputy Chair Saut Situmorang has instructed PT ACK, as the manager of Center Point, to return the land or assets of state-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) without further ado.

The asset was in Gang Buntu in Medan, which has currently established a Center Point building.

"This is since it belongs to the state, and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) keeps no state losses," he noted at a discussion on the Role of Political Parties in the Corruption Prevention Framework in Medan, North Sumatra, on Thursday.

Speaking in connection with the follow up, Situmorang revealed that he had met with Medan Mayor Tengku Dzulmi Eldin on Thursday and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

"Hence, later, they (PT KAI and PT ACK) will solely go into the detail stage, so the MoU can be immediately followed up. It seems they already have a prime time and perhaps in August, certainty will be gained on what kind of follow up," he explained.

He noted that with regard to these assets, business certainty is necessary, taking into account the several buildings on the land.

"Hence, if they are business-to-business, they are mutually beneficial, then the people of Medan can enjoy it too. Thus, there are already several assets, so we need business certainty," he added.
