Home Ministry Successfully Resolves Building Dispute
Secretary-General of Ministry of Home Affairs Hadi Prabowo successfully mediated in the dispute between Ministry of Law and Human Rights and Tangerang Mayor Arief R. Wismansyah on the building permit of Polytechnic School of Correctional Service Sciences and Polytechnic School of Immigration.
Both parties have agreed to revoke their respective reports submitted to the police. Furthermore, the settlement process will be facilitated by Banten Governor.
“Earlier, we have an agreement that both parties would withdraw all reports. After that, public services (related to water, electricity, and waste) will run normally. Finally, the normative questions related to license and spatial plan will be resolved as well as possible,” Hadi told reporters after the mediation at Ministry of Home Affairs office, Jakarta (18/7), adding that a further agreement will be stipulated in Tangerang Spatial Planning Regulation Draft.
Hadi stated that after the agreement, there are some licensing requirements to be completed. There are some lands of Ministry of Law and Human Rights, he added, which have not yet been submitted to the Tangerang Municipalities. So, in the future, the submission of lands to Tangerang City Government, as state property, will be facilitated by Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing for matters related to building and Ministry of Finance for matters related to social and public facilities.
In the meantime, Arief stated that he would follow the directions given by the Central Government (Ministry of Home Affairs, Banten Provincial Government). He also asserted that he would support the implementation of Central Government programs in the city. (Puspen Kemendagri/ES)
