Governor Anies Baswedan Decides to Shut Down Diamond Karaoke

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has decided to shut down Diamond Karaoke in West Jakarta. The night club was put under the spotlight after police raid the place and found Golkar Party politician Indra J. Piliang having a drug party with his friends. “We are committed to preventing drug trade. After we found drugs in this place, it cannot operate anymore,” Anies said today at the City Hall.

Anies Baswedan said that the decision was made after he received a report from the Public Order Agency (Satpol PP). He is commited to implementing Jakarta Regional Regulation No. 6/2015 on Tourism saying that night clubs that let drug trade and drug use will be shut down.

Jakarta also has a gubernatorial regulation on closure of night clubs if drugs are found on two occasions. Anies expects night club owners to be committed to fighting drug trade.

Indra J. Piliang and two of his friends were arrested at Diamond Karaoke on September 13. Police seized bongs, plastic bags and matches.

Then Jakarta Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat sealed off that Diamond Karaoke as police investigate the place. The night club permit is finally revoked by Governor Anies Baswedan.
