Morry noted that the tour operator's use of an underage employee like GH is not their only offense.
“The pleasure boats are made to accommodate 12 people, yet when the vessel capsized it held 20 passengers. The vessel’s operators are required to have life vests, which they neglected to use when the incident occurred.”
Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo also weighed in on the tragedy. “I want the tour operator to account for his actions. Their business permit should be reviewed, and if necessary, revoked,” he said, as quoted by the Antara state news agency.
The Central Java Regional Police have closed Kedung Ombo reservoir after the disaster for violating health protocols and to continue their search for the missing.
