JAKARTA: President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has redeemed a limited edition boxed set of Metallica’s Master of Puppets to avoid a conflict of interest, Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Febri Diyansyah has said.

Jokowi, widely known to be a metalhead, received the double-vinyl album as a gift from Danish Prime Minister Lars Lkke Rasmus­sen on Nov 28 last year during a state visit.
