JAKARTA - The government's attitude regarding management of registers 40 land is questionable. There is an impression of the government, in this case Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) not transparent in following up the Supreme Court (MA) decision and does not apply the same treatment to the company suspected to violate the use of land functions.
There is an impression of the government in this case, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) is not transparent in following up the Supreme Court (MA) decision and does not apply the same treatment to the company suspected to violate the use of land functions.
The Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi) considers that there are many things that KLHK hides in relation to the action against companies that manage land in register 40.
After the death of Derianus Lungguk (DL) Sitorus, one of the plantation entrepreneurs from Medan, North Sumatra, opened the screen of bad execution and not transparent in describing the results of land execution set by the Supreme Court.
Executive Director of Walhi North Sumatra, Dana Tarigan requested KLHK to take action against all companies in the 40 register field using the land, but not in accordance with the allocation.
This needs to be done in order to demonstrate the government, to act justly not just to take action against one company, PT Torganda (company owned by DL Sitorus), but other companies also include State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN).
"We have to say that, all the wrong companies should be dealt with and treated the same in the register land 40. If there is a community-managed, then it includes agrarian reform to be distributed to the community. If any company manages illegally, the land must be taken by KLHK to be returned to the country in a reforested condition. Do not let the government out of money (to reforest), it is also not fair," said Dana, Tuesday (5/9).
For known, there are 29 companies controlling the land of Register 40, namely PT FMP of 14,853 hectares, PT Wonorejo of 7,892 ha, PTPN IV 10,000 ha, PT SSPI 5,500 ha, Bukit Harapan Cooperative (executed) 23,450 ha, KTPS 14,000 ha, PT AML 21,000 ha, Langkimat 14,000 ha, PT SSL 33,390 ha, PT EPS 9,833 ha, PT KM 2,000 ha, PTPN II 10,000 ha, PT Rapala 10,300 ha, PT Inhutani IV 19,500 ha.
Then there is also Parsub 17.000 ha, Community Group 10.000 ha, KUD Sinar Baru 3000 ha, KUD Serba Guna 3000 ha (already have certificate), Cooperative KPN 1,500 ha, PT Rispa 5,000 ha, Transmigration 7,135 ha, PT SKL 82.502 ha, PT CP 2,000 ha, PT MAI 10,781 Ha, PT KAS 4,870 Ha, PT HBP 4,000 ha, PT AMKS 4,500 Ha, PT AMKS 4,500 ha, PT Germany 300 ha.
But lately only sticking out cases of land 47 thousand ha, land owned by company DL Sitorus. This then led to the reaction of many parties, and questioned the reasons of the KLHK which only questioned DL Sitorus, who then died on 3 August 2017 ago.
Dana added that KLHK is not transparent in money management from ransom given by the company that manages the land in register 40. According to its calculation, the amount of funds is estimated to reach Rp 7.8 trillion and the fund must be accountable to the public.
"The order of the Supreme Court's decision in execution is all, then the company is given one cycle cropping time, then reforested. Money that one planting cycle should be returned to the country. If according to our calculation has reached Rp 7.8 trillion, that's who hold that," said Dana.
Dana asserted, if the money has not been paid by PT Torganda (company owned DL Sitorus) then the government should ask for the money. If not according to him, there is a loss experienced by the state and raises the suspicion that the money is distributed to the unscrupulous.
