Regent HM Sukamta emphasized that the State Civil Apparatus (ASN) within the Tanah Laut District Government should not refuse to be swab tested.
"ASN is an example in society, don't let anyone not dare or refuse to be swabbed, let alone frighten the community. This is against the Government Regulation No.53 of 2020. Report it to me, I will give sanctions," said Sukamta while chairing a virtual regional leadership coordination meeting with government working units (SKPD) on Monday (Sept 7, 2020).

Meanwhile, related to the 54th anniversary of Tanah Laut in December 2020, Sukamta instructed all SKPD ranks to prepare it, just like last year.
"We prepare everything like last year. If it is not possible, we will not hold it. It's better we prepare first. If it is canceled, the budget will go to SILPA (unused funds)," he said.
To all SKPD, he insisted, to fulfill all financial accountability related to handlig COVID-19, both direct cash assistance (BLT), procurement of goods and services, as well as assistance from third parties.
"The evaluation of our government must continue and the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in this area must also continue. We have spent a lot of money on handling the coronavirus," he said.
The virtual meeting was also attended by the Tanah Laut Regional Secretary H Dahnial Kifli, assistants of the district administration, expert staff, and heads of boards and agencies.
