"Our legal officers should not be hijacked by the organized crime syndicates and should ensure the progress of government programs," President Joko Widodo said during a limited meeting at Jakarta, Thursday.
The law must guarantee the courage of investors, businesses and industries to do business in the country.
Law enforcement officials must support strategic programs for national development, he explained.
The President urged the authorities to review legal issues relating to development programs.
"Do not let the organized crime syndicates bite and block the program," the President stated.
During the meeting, the President also asked his cabinet to explain several issues in anticipation of any turmoil in politics and security in the country.
He directed his assistants to invite the public for a dialogue to discuss the revision of the Manpower Law.
Besides, he asked his ministers to provide a clear understanding of the programs of the government, such as those related to the rising fees of the Health Care and Social Security Agency (BPJS Kesehatan). (INE)
