JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Companies and mall operators face a fine of up to 50 million rupiahs ($3,550) if they do not adhere to the Covid-19 health protocols in the capital Jakarta, a Jakarta government official said June 17.
“If they are found violating (the health protocols), we would impose a fine of from 25 million rupiahs to 50 million rupiahs,” said the Head of Jakarta’s Manpower, Transmigration, and Energy Agency, Andri Yansyah, during a joint inspection with the Ministry of Manpower to Kota Kasablanka Mall.
The Jakarta Administration will initially issue a warning letter in the first instance of noncompliance. If the fine up to 50 million rupiahs later proves to have very little deterrent effect, a 14-day shutdown of operations would be imposed, followed by revocation of business permits. These are stated in the Gubernatorial Regulation No. 41/2020 on sanctions for the large scale social restrictions (PSBB) violators.
“We will first send two warning letters. Based on the Gubernatorial Regulation No. 41/2020, if violators pay no heed to the warning notice, this will lead to cessation of operations. If they still do not adhere to the rules, we will suggest revoking the permits,” Andri said.
He went on to say that the Jakarta Administration together with the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) and the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (Kadin) have been working closely to address the issue of PSBB violations.
“We also worked closely with Kadin and Apindo when giving a verbal warning to the relevant representatives, and that’s more effective,” he said.
It has also partnered with the Jakarta Public Order Agency to monitor the enforcement of health protocols. Under the protocols, companies are required to establish their Covid-19 task force to contain the spread of the virus.
"We also carry out our own internal monitoring. As for the malls and crowded places, we have a policy under the supervision of the Jakarta Employment Agency (BKD) to deploy all staffers in the Jakarta Administration to various areas based on the number of commercial places,” he said.
