"On September 5-14, we recorded a total of 31,787 violators, with Rp467.1 million in fines collected," Satpol PP Chief Ujang Harmawan stated following a raid called Operasi Yustisi in front of the state-owned vocational school SMK 57 in Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, on Thursday.
Harmawan noted that the 31,787 violators drew sanctions on grounds of having violated health protocols, including not wearing face masks while venturing outdoors.
During the aforementioned period of time, Satpol PP also found 92 business sites violating health protocols, of which 46 were fined, while 40 others were shut down for 24 hours.
"We will continue to supervise the tens of restaurants, cafes, and food stalls in accordance with the health protocols," he stated.
Harmawan pointed out that Jakarta residents' adherence to health protocols during the PSBB this time was better than that during the transitional period of PSBB, as was apparent from the number of violations.
"During the transitional period, tens of violators were caught in just an hour of the operation. However, today, we have caught only 13 violators in one hour," he remarked.
The Satpol PP chief noted that Operasi Yustisi on Thursday was simultaneously conducted in 13 sub-districts in South Jakarta every morning during the past three days.
