Gold Medalist Eki Now Happy After Call From Sports Minister | Jakarta Globe

"I, Eki Febri Ekawati, say thank you to Pak Imam, Mr Gatot [the Ministry of Sports secretary general] and Satlak Prima [Indonesia's Sports High-Performance Task Force] and other related parties who have responded well and fast to fix my accommodation fees issue.
