Is Ahok really that clean, without a mistake? Sandiaga says

BINTANGNEWS.com – In response to criticism from Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama who claimed that he was hiding wealth abroad, deputy gubernatorial candidate Sandiaga Uno hit back saying Ahok has no understanding of transparency on private wealth.
Accompanied by gubernatorial hopeful and running mate Anies Baswedan, Sandiaga handed over his wealth report to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) on Thursday, while Anies had already handed his report to the antigraft body soon after he lost his ministerial post. Sandiaga said his report to the KPK was part of his commitment to wealth transparency.
“Let’s us see when the KPK discloses [the wealth of candidates]. Is he [Ahok] really that clean, without a mistake? Is there no possibility that in part of [his] report an error could have been made?” Sandiaga said in Jakarta on Friday.
Previously, Ahok said he would not participate in the tax amnesty program as suggested by Sandiaga, as he claimed that he had no funds abroad.
Sandiaga then criticized Ahok for the Jakarta administration having not received the highest mark or even the reasonable without exception (WTP) mark from the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) while under his leadership.
Sandiaga also criticized Ahok for not urging his supporter group Teman Ahok (Friends of Ahok) to audit the donations they had collected to fund the collection of one million ID-backed signatures to support Ahok’s previous bid to run on an independent ticket.
The Gerindra politician said he had prepared his report in regard to spending for his candidacy in the last year.
“I have consulted with the Indonesian Accountants Association (AIA). I will report all my expenditures: salaries for members of my team, contributions tomajelis taklim (Islamic stady groups), everything,” Sandiaga added.***
