The Head of Regional Law and Human Rights Officer, Jamaruli Manihuruk, honoured the new nationals during his speech. “Congratulations to all of you who have undergone the process for Indonesian citizenship,” Jamaruli said.

Mario Iorio told a reporter that he has been staying in Indonesia for 33 years. “My wife is already here, and so is my business. This is the best decision for me” Mario said. He mentioned undergoing legal procedures through Kitas and Kitab.

Meanwhile, Aldo Andrea said that he chose to become a citizen to be closer to his mother, who is also Indonesian. He has recently completed his education in Barcelona, Spain and is currently looking for a job in Bali. Jamaruli hopes the three will blend into the cultural tradition of Indonesia as responsible citizens.
