The Supreme Court, European Union and UNDP held e-LHKPN Training for Supreme Court Justices
Jakarta, March 13, 2018 - The Supreme Court of the Republic of Indonesia, facilitated by EU-UNDP Project ‘Support to the Justice Sector Reform in Indonesia’ (SUSTAIN) conducted training on filling electronic wealth report (e-LHKPN) for Supreme Court Justices and their staff. The event was held at Redtop Hotel, Central Jakarta.
A total of 170 participants comprising Supreme Court Justices, Echelon I officials and executive staff in the Supreme Court participated in the technical training on filling out e-LHKPN, an electronic wealth reporting form provided by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).
The training was attended by the Vice Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for Judicial Affairs Dr. H. M. Syarifuddin, SH., MH. and opened by Head of the Supreme Court Oversight Body Nugroho Setiadji, SH. In his opening address, Nugroho said that this e-LHKPN training is needed to maintain compliance rating in the Supreme Court and subordinate courts.
"The Supreme Court has an excellent compliance rating this year and hopefully the e-LHKPN training can result in a better oversight."
In December last year, KPK presented a wealth report management award to the Supreme Court as the Best Nominee. In the past three years, the wealth reporting compliance of state officials in the Supreme Court and subordinate courts continues to increase from 88.10% in 2015; 88.76% in 2016 and 94.79% in 2017.
The LHKPN filing is performed once a year, and since 2017 public officials can report their assets online through the e-LHKPN application developed by the KPK.
EU-UNDP SUSTAIN Senior Adviser Gilles Blanchi said that e-LHKPN training is important to achieve a better transparency in the justice sector.
"The technical guidance on filling e-LHKPN is an integral part of SUSTAIN's work to improve transparency, integrity and accountability of the judiciary. We assist the Supreme Court to meet the LHKPN submission deadline of March 31, 2018 set by the KPK.
The technical guidance on filling e-LHKPN held by the Supreme Court and SUSTAIN has entered the second year. The training in Jakarta will continue with similar trainings in three other cities in March, namely Surabaya, Jayapura and Bandung.
The SUSTAIN project aims to support reforms within the justice sector in Indonesia. The project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Indonesia, with the Supreme Court as its main partner.
