Available in Farsi به زبان فارسی موجود است, click here to download

Ditlantas Polda Metro Jaya (Jakarta Traffic Police Division) is starting to record vehicle users who violated the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to overcome the coronavirus in DKI Jakarta.

The data collection was done through a Warning Notification given to motorists who violated. Later, if the driver is found to have committed a similar violation again, he will be immediately sanctioned.

The Ditlantas has also added surveillance posts regarding the implementation of PSBB in Bodetabek. There are a total of 158 checkpoints in Jabodetabek (Jakarta Bogor Depok Tangerang Bekasi).

The warning notification given to the driver was the modification of the traffic ticket. The difference is that the police will not confiscate a SIM or STNK that receives a reprimand letter. Traffic tickets are known to be usually given by police officers to motorists who are judged to have violated the rules or traffic signs. Read more

Protection for refugees in Indonesia: A state responsibility

Refugees in Indonesia have staged many rallies this year. The street hosting the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) Indonesia, Jl. Kebon Sirih in Central Jakarta, was filled with refugees, requesting protection and a solution to their situation living in limbo for years, particularly from June to August.

Refugee migration is increasing worldwide as a result of civil wars and internal conflicts in various parts of the world. The UN estimates that as of last June, Indonesia had been a host to almost 14,000 refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Myanmar, Sudan, etc.

However, is being signatory to the aforementioned conventions the only pre-requisite for a state in providing protection for refugees in Indonesia?
