PEUREULAK-Hundreds of billions of rupiah in special autonomy funds (Otsus) poured out by the Government of Aceh, to finance road construction projects in the interior of East Aceh, were found to be mere mud.

“I got information and complaints from Peunaron residents, that not yet a year the physical work project was carried out, now the road section has been badly damaged. Then, I tried to go down to see firsthand. It turns out that it is really very alarming, this condition must be immediately evaluated by the Aceh Government together with its DPRA colleagues, “he told the media.
The situation also said, occurred in the border area of Peunaron-Peureulak District.
