The municipality government of Jakarta has been trying for many years to get rid of Beggars, Tramps, Car wipers from the streets of the city, with little success.
For which purpose, By-Law (Perda) No 7/2008 regarding Public Order was issued in 2008, but it does not seem to be effective.
According to Berita Jakarta, the Jakarta municipality government will be serious in enforcing the By-Law in two stages.
First, a Socialization period from 20 July (yesterday) until 15 August in which violators will get
After that, there will be an enforcement period from 16 August until 29 August,
in which violators will be sent directly to
social institution and will not be released until Ied Ul Fitr.
So, they will celebrate Ied Ul FItr in Social Institution.
Frankly speaking, I think that this effort would work during the above enforcement period, however I am not sure how will it be in the future.
As long as those Beggars, Tramps etc. are still available on the streets, and no serious efforts to prevent them from doing so, it would be very difficult to expect that the By-Law will be effective.
