    China to Invest US$1 Billion in Fishery Sector
    Friday, 09 September, 2005 | 11:27 WIB

    TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Chinese businessmen have made a commitment to invest in the fishery sector in Indonesia.

    “Total investment will amount to US$1 billion,” said Freddy Numberi, Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, at his office on Thursday (08/09).

    Assurances regarding the investment were made during a recent visit made by Numberi to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) together with Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

    Investment amounting to US$200 million will be made in Merauke, US$300 million in Terrnate and US$300 in Tual, with the remainder in other regions.

    Numberi said that the cooperation made by the Chinese and Indonesian governments had not fully benefited
    Indonesia up to now, as only issued licenses for fishing in Indonesia.

    The fish are then exported abroad.

  • Menhut Desak Proses Hukum 10 Bupati yang Terlibat Kejahatan Kehutanan

    Rabu, 07 September 2005 - 07:30 AM

    Jakarta, Menteri Kehutanan (Menhut) mendesak Kejaksaan Agung mengusut tuntas kasus 10 bupati dan mantan bupati yang terindikasi kuat melakukan kejahatan di bidang kehutanan. Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono juga telah mengeluarkan izin pemeriksaan terhadap para bupati tersebut.

    ''Saat ini beberapa kasus sudah sampai pada penyelidikan dan pengumpulan bahan keterangan. Jadi memang ada beberapa kasus pelanggaran yang berpotensi merugikan negara yang diduga kuat melibatkan para bupati dan mantan bupati itu. Kita sudah minta secara resmi kepada Kejaksaan Agung supaya kasus ini cepat diselesaikan,'' kata Menhut MS Kaban di Jakarta, Senin (5/9).

    Menurut Menhut, akibat ulah para kepala daerah itu, negara berpotensi mengalami kerugian puluhan miliar. Saat diminta memerinci kesepuluh bupati dan mantan bupati itu, Menhut mengaku tidak hafal satu per satu. Dia hanya menyebutkan, kesepuluh bupati dan mantan bupati tersebut, lima orang berasal dari wilayah Kalimantan, empat orang dari Sumatera, dan satu orang dari Papua.

    Direktur Jendral Bina Produksi Kehutanan Dephut, Suhariyanto menambahkan, kasus-kasus yang melibatkan para kepala daerah tersebut meliputi penyelewengan setoran Dana Reboisasi dan Provisi Sumber Daya Hutan (DR-PSDH), pemberian izin pengusahaan hutan yang tidak sesuai dengan UU 41/1999 tentang Kehutanan, serta pembalakan liar (illegal logging).

    ''Ada setoran DR-PSDH dalam jumlah yang cukup besar yang sampai saat ini masih ditahan kepala daerah dengan berbagai alasan. Ada setoran yang mengendap di rekening bupati, dan ada juga yang digunakan untuk hal-hal lain. Padahal dana DR-PSDH itu harus disetorkan ke kas negara. Jumlahnya memang tidak sampai ratusan miliar rupiah, hanya puluhan miliar rupiah. Tapi, kita tidak melihat nominalnya. Ini adalah pelanggaran aturan dan merugikan negara. Jadi, ini yang kita tekankan,'' katanya.

  • Forum seeks public debate on Papua

    Muninggar Sri Saraswati, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

     

    A group of prominent figures established a forum on Tuesday to increase public participation in the efforts to resolve the problems of Papua, which has been affected by human rights abuses and secessionist sentiment for decades.

     

    The establishment of the Papua Forum has been inspired by a lack of transparency in the way in which the government dealt with the Aceh conflict recently, the forum's deputy chairman Marzuki Darusman said.

     

    "People feel they have been excluded by the government from the efforts to settle the Aceh problem. Now that the President has announced the government's intention of addressing the Papua issue, we hope that this forum will be capable of ensuring greater public participation," Marzuki, of the Golkar Party, said.

     

    In his address to the Regional Representatives Council (DPD) a few weeks ago, President Susilo said that the government would now turn its attention to Papua after the peace deal with the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) to end three decades of bloodshed in the country's westernmost province.

     

    Albert Hasibuan, who chairs the new forum, said that it had been established to show the public that the Papua issue was not the exclusive domain of Papuans and the government, but also concerned other Indonesians.

     

    Other founders of the forum include H.S. Dillon, Sabam Siagian, Fikri Jufri, Tommy Legowo, Zoemrotin K. Susilo, Asmara Nababan, Fajrul Falaakh, Faisal Basri, Tuty Herati Nurhadi, Bara Hasibuan, Rizal Sukma, Father J. Budi Hernawan OFM, Wiryono Sastrohandoyo, Shanti Poesposoetjipto, Sjafii Maarif and Harry Tjan Silalahi.

     

    Wiryono said Indonesians quickly unite when it comes to problems with other countries but do the opposite in response to domestic problems.

     

    "There has also long been a mind-set that separatism must be crushed (by the use of force). It's reform time now, meaning that problems must be resolved through peaceful means," said the former diplomat, who was the government's chief negotiator during talks with GAM in 2002.

     

    Albert said the forum planned to initiate debate on the problems of Papua and to approach them from various perspectives. The results would then be presented to the government.

     

    Jakarta, Sabam added, must not attempt to oversimplify the problems in Papua, which he said were complicated and had persisted since the late 1940s.

     

    The government has admitted that separatist sentiment in Papua is the result of the unfair treatment meted out by Jakarta to indigenous Papuans in the economic, political, social and security fields.

     

    Human rights violations have been widespread in Papua, but the perpetrators have rarely been brought to book. Meanwhile, most Papuans continue to live in abject poverty despite Papua's mineral wealth.

     

    Like Aceh, Papua has been granted special autonomy, but unlike Aceh its implementation has consistently been thwarted by Jakarta. To date, the government has yet to set up the Papuan People's Assembly (MRP), even though its establishment is mandated by law.

     

    Through changes in the legislation, the government has ensured that if and when it is set up, the MRP, which is supposed to have a say in the political, social and economic affairs of the province, will serve as little more than a cultural talking shop.

     

    Separately in Jayapura, tribal leader Seblum Werbabkay called on the Papua administration, the Papua General Elections Commission (KPUD) and the Papua provincial council to hold a gubernatorial election after the establishment of the MRP.

     

    He said it was the MRP that had the power to determine those eligible to contest the election under the Papuan Special Autonomy Law (No. 21/2001).

     

    "Otherwise, it may spark conflict," Seblum said.

     

    The Papua issue recently came to the fore again following the questioning in the U.S. of Indonesia's sovereignty over Papua in the 2006-2007 foreign relations authorization bill, which has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and is now at the committee stage in the Senate.
