JAKARTADAILY.ID - Former Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia for the term of 23 October 2019 – 23 December 2020 was officially fired from the Indonesian Doctors Association or IDI, as reported by @blogdokter Twitter.
"The Honorary Council of Medical Ethics (MKEK) of PB IDI has officially dismissed Prof. Dr. dr. Terawan Agus Putranto, Sp Rad(K) as a permanent member of IDI," tweeted @blogdokter.
The account then stated the consequence of the dismissal of the Gajah Mada University alumnus doctor.
"The consequence of being fired as an IDI member is that he cannot get an IDI recommendation to apply for a Practice Permit. So, Dr. Terawan can no longer practice serving patients in Indonesia because he does not have a SIP," said the account.

The decision was the result of a special MKEK meeting at the PB IDI congress in Banda Aceh. But the decision is not final. According to the newest info, Muktamar’s decision was halted due to objections from the participants of the PB IDI contingent. There is also a letter of objection from PDSRI.
It is known that Terawan's actions are considered controversial. The TNI AD retiree has practiced brainwashing methods based on interventional radiology. Apparently, it has not been officially permitted as it is still a matter of debate among practitioners.
Terawan also once promoted the Nusantara Vaccine when the research had not been completed. At that time, Terawan no longer serves as the Minister of Health.
Terawan also forbids people from wearing masks at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia on Monday, March 2, 2020. The restriction is considered controversial because it could result in the spread of the virus getting out of control.
Subsequently, he was removed as the Minister of Health. Terawan has made many blunders which caused him to be directly reprimanded by Jokowi.
In addition, the Secretary-General of the Indonesian Forum for Budget Transparency stated that Terawan was less responsive when dealing with the COVID-19 issue.
