Siti Fadjrijah yet to recover
Siti Ch Fajdrijah, deputy governor of Bank Indonesia and one of key figures behind the bailout of Bank Century, has yet to recover from a stroke hit her since March 2009. Doctors at Cipto Mangunkusumo hospital do not allow her to back to work, Kompas.com reported.
Two other deputies, Budi Rochadi and Ardhayadi, take over Siti's duties at Bank Indonesia since April 2009. "She is not allowed to work hard, but she is still the deputy governor," Kompas quoted Ardhayadi on Wednesday.
Siti's portfolio is banking supervision. She played crucial role in various meetings organized by Financial Sector Stability Committee (KSSK) chaired by finance minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati, especially in providing data and informations related to Century. Sri Mulyani once admitted poor quality of data provided by Bank Indonesia for the decision making.
Habil Marati, legislator from PPP, once said Siti recommended the liquidation of Century, but others rejected and decided to bailout the bank instead. Siti was elected deputy governor in May 2005. Born in Temanggung, Central Java, in September 2, 1951, Siti graduated from Gadjah Mada University (Yogyakarta) and PhD from University of Indonesia. She started her career in Bank Indonesia as staff at Bank Supervision in 1979.
