Jokowi added that governors, their deputies and others should set a good example for the public, instead of participating or allowing gatherings like the FPI’s welcoming committee for Riziek at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, or his similar visit to West Java’s Puncak tourist area.

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan Gets Fallout From FPI’s Disregard of Health Protocols

The central government has ordered the police to summon Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan because of his inability to enforce health protocols in the capital after Rizieq Shihab’s return from exile.

“We have warned [Anies] that he should to remind the FPI to comply with health protocols, especially when they carry out gatherings like the wedding of Rizieq’s daughter,” said Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Mahfud MD.

“Ensuring the [FPI’s compliance] with health protocols is [Anies] and the Jakarta Provincial Administration’s responsibility.” Mahfud added that the central government regretted the FPI’s flaunting of health protocols.

The Indonesian National Police [Polri] also summoned Anies in connection with the wedding reception, which was attended by more than 10 thousand FPI fanatics and their allies.

“The parties we summoned include the Jakarta Provincial Administration, the Covid-19 Task Force, and a number of attendees,” said Police spokesman Inspector General Argo Yuwono. “We will ask them to clarify their actions, so as to determine if they broke a 2018 law on health quarantines.”

But Anies denied that he let off Rizieq easy. “I have sent [Rizieq] a letter urging him to comply with health protocols, then gave him with a Rp. 50 million [$3,549.14] fine when he failed to do so,” he maintained. The FPI said Rizieq paid the fine.
