KPK: Health Sector Debt LN Delinquent

Komisi Pemberantas Korupsi(KPK) to find the problems of foreign debt to the health sector, thus burdening the state. 'Many sectors of health care services that are funded with foreign debt, but stuck fast,' said Vice Chairman of the KPK Haryono Umar in Jakarta on Wednesday june 10.2009. The findings revealed that after the leaders met with the KPK Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari with a number of Ministry of Health officials to discuss prevention of criminal corruption. Haryono asserts, is the dominant bottleneck problem of debt because debt has not been or can not be flowed by the debt, but the government should bear some cost. Cost is included the cost of commitment, the cost of the contract, the cost of assistance, and other.
'Currently we are calculating the burden borne by the state due to the costs,' said Haryono. He cite, the country has been burdened to pay for the cost of various types of debt due to the commitment of Mohammad Hussein hospital in South Sumatra. The hospital is already finished, but the foreign debt of 30 million Euro jammed because the hospital management can not complete the procedures of health equipment . Even though the debt has not liquid, said Haryono, the government must bear the various costs, including cost debt commitment. Haryono mention, the state must pay a commitment fee is 11 thousand U.S. dollars in 2007 and 10 thousand U.S. dollars in 2008. 'The number of more or less the same also happened in 2009,' said Haryono.
In addition, the KPK also find debt management problems of 31 million U.S. dollars, thus burdening the country with different costs. Debt is for "Health Services Work" in Indonesia. Then, the state also terbebani with a variety of debt costs due to the commitment of 30 million U.S. dollars. Korea as debt does not dilute it with debt for many different reasons. However, the country still terbebani with the cost of commitment, cost and other assistance. "Strangely, even though the debt is not liquid, suddenly appear two more new debt," said Haryono. Two new debt is shown in March 2009 for the Manado area of 28.9 U.S. dollars and Singapore of 30 million U.S. dollars.

Haryono can expect the Department of Health menertibkan foreign debt management, so the state can minimize its losses. Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari acknowledges the existence of the debt is foreign. "That is actually the continuation of the old ministry," said Siti. He confessed debt management is quite complex, giving rise to the burden for countries in the form of commitment fees, cost and other assistance. Siti asserts, the Department of Health is ready to cooperate with the KPK launcing management of foreign debt in the health sector.
