JAKARTADAILY.ID – The Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources Rida Mulyana said that the Ministry needs to create a new unit tasked with law enforcement in the sector. 

Currently, that task falls on the Civil Servan Investigator, however, Rida said that this is not enough, as there are still many "deviances" in the management of energy and mineral resources. 

Speaking in the Focus Group Discussion titled "Establishment of a Unit to Handle Law Enforcement in the Energy and Mineral Resources Sector" in Jakarta, Rida said the establishment of a new structure that handles law enforcement in the energy and mineral resources sector was deemed necessary solely for the benefit of the state.

"Among other things, for better non-tax state revenues," continued Rida

Meanwhile, a member of Commission VII of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Adian Napitupulu saw the need to establish a special unit in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources that handles law enforcement.

According to him, violations are rampant among mining operations in Indonesia.

"Why don't we just create a Gakum (law enforcement) unit at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (?) There are 2,700 illegal mines, about a thousand have their licenses revoked due to violations, (and) maybe around 300 are operating," said Adian.
