Task Force Guards Bordering Waters

TEMPO Interactive,
Batam:The Marine Security Coordinating Board (Bakor Kamla) has formed a task force to guard the waters at border areas, especially around Riau Archipelago. The squad will be based in Batam, Riau.

Bakor Kamla’s Task Force Executive Chief, First Admiral Didi Heru Purnomo, said the task force was formed following the arrest of three officials from the Maritime and Fishery Ministry by the Malaysian Police a while back.

According to Didi, the incident took place because of lack of coordination. “This concerns the state’s sovereignty,” Didi said in Batam on Monday.

During the opening of a refreshers course for Bakor Kamla patrol commanders and ship captains yesterday, he said the commanders and ship captains have been equipped with C-type ships, able to catch fish robbers and maritime criminals in Indonesia.

According to Didi, 35.000 tankers pass the Malaka Strait every year, and 80 percent of them carry crude oil to East Asia.

He said a similar task force will be established in three areas; Batam, Tarakan (Belitung), and eastern Indonesia. Bakor Kamla was formed according to the Presidential Regulation no. 81/2005.

The task force consists of 12 stakeholders, including the Indonesian Navy, Army, the police, the Custom and Excise Office, the Immigration, the ministries of Forestry, Transportation, and Coordinating Ministry for Political, Justice, and Security Affairs, as well as the Attorney General’s Office (AGO)

First Admiral Christina M. Rantetana from the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Justice, and Security Affairs said the task force was important because there have been some issues on maritime authority. As a result, she said, each institution is working independently. “Yet, we need to have the same perception to maintain the nation’s unity,” she ended.
