JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Indonesia’s Twitterverse was abuzz with talks on the supposed sale of the House of Representatives building and everything inside it for 666 rupiahs on the largest e-commerce platform Tokopedia in the country on Wednesday.
This prompted Tokopedia’s External Communication Senior Lead Ekhel Chandra Wijaya to quell the rumor, saying the company would take firm action against any misuse on the Tokopedia platform.
“We are currently following up on the report based on the procedures and we will take firm action against any misuse of the Tokopedia platform,” Ekhel told Kompas.com on October 7.
He explained that even though sellers can directly upload their products to the Tokopedia platform, the company continues to be proactive in maintaining all activities on the platform based on laws.

He said that Tokopedia has a feature on reporting procedures for infringement of product content, where the public can report products that violate the rules of the Tokopedia platform and the laws in Indonesia.
Kompas.com learned that as of 12.50pm local time, October 7, the seller already took down the item from the e-commerce platform.
The parliament building was put up for sale on Tokopedia after the House of Representatives voted on October 5 to pass the job creation bill into law which aims to improve the investment climate in Indonesia despite opposition from labor unions.
