Papua Governor Proposes Task Force to Stop Illegal Logging

Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Governor Lukas Enembe called for a task force to combat illegal logging in the easternmost province of Indonesia.

“Actually this problem of illegal logging has occurred for several years ago and it is massive, ” Enembe told reporters in Jayapura, Papua on Monday (02/23).

He said illegal logging is so rampant that every night containers containing wood board the ship.
“Everyone knows it, but no one dares to fight it,” he said.

For the problem of illegal logging, the officials who made the report also violated it, so it is impossible for them to crack down this practice.
“This country is chaos. Many regulations are made, but can not be enforced well. It is regrettable,” Enembe added.

Therefore, he urged the Forestry Agency and related parties to immediately stop the perpetrators of illegal logging practices in the forests of Papua.
“If illegal fishing, the ship can be sunk, yes illegal logging vessels should also be scuttled and car transporters should be burned. It is to be established by the Minister of Forestry,” he hoped. (Alexander Loen/Tina)
