City DPRD supports the Jakarta Provincial Government's assertive action that covers one of the night entertainment venues in North Jakarta for violating the rules.

" It's a criminal realm and violates bylaw"

Entertainment venues closed down have violated the Article 14 Bylaw No. 6/2015 on Tourism.

"It's a criminal realm and violates bylaw," expressed Triwisaksana, Vice Chairman of City DPRD, Thursday (3/29).

According to him, the violation is different than violation of allotment or zoning that can be categorized as a consequence of civil law.

"But if it is about prostitution and human trafficking, this is surely a gross violation," he asserted.

He believes, the city's assertiveness will trigger the business world of tourism in the capital more healthy and improve the positive economy.

"This will make the competition in the tourism business more fair," he said.
