Scorpion Protest against Illegal Wildlife Market in Jatinegara, Jakarta (October 13, 2016)
Posted on 23:01 October 13th, 2016


 

The Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group insisted Jakarta Governor Mr. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) to shut down wildlife market in Jatinegara, East Jakarta. In a protest in front of Governor Office in Jakarta today (Thursday, 13/10) the group demanded closing down of the Jatinegara market, because, it is not only a place for trading of protected animals but it also causes traffic jam and dirty.

 

“Everyday, we are shown cruelty to animals here. Some animals are protected by the law,” Senior Investigator, Marison Guciano told Pos Kota daily newspaper.

 

According to monitoring of Scorpion in Jatinegara market, the majority of the wildlife animals on  sale here are taken from the wild without permit, and they are not covered with transportation permits (Surat Angktu Tumbuhan dan Satwa Dalam Negeri -SATS-DN) as required by the Ministerial regulation no. 447/kpts-II/2003.
