Jakarta Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza Patria Calls For Muted Christmas and New Year Celebrations
Jakarta Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza ‘Ariza’ Patria announced that he is considering smaller scale celebrations for Christmas and New Year’s Day.
“The step depends on existing regulations and laws. They will then be adjusted accordingly,” he said on 16 November.
“We urge the revelers to limit the number of guests in compliance with Covid-19 health protocols. Any violators will be fined Rp 50 million, while repeat offenders are liable to pay Rp. 100 million.”
However, he defended his presence at an FPI rally in South Jakarta’s Tebet neighborhood. “We did not have enough personnel, particularly from the Jakarta Public Order Agency, to enforce health protocols,” he said.
“I did attend as I was invited, and I assumed the event would be orderly. But [we and the FPI] did not expect such a large crowd. They were local people who were not invited, so we cannot control them.”https://t.me/kompascomupdate, kemudian join. Anda harus install aplikasi Telegram terlebih dulu di ponsel.
