Junimart Girsang Affirms, The Pure Rocky Gerung Land Case is a Legal Problem
Deputy Chairman of Commission II of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Junimart Girsang, spoke about the issue of land owned by political observer Rocky Gerung with Sentul City. PT Sentul City asked Rocky Gerung to demolish the house in Bojong Koneng Village, Sentul, Bogor Regency.
According to him, the land case that happened to Rocky was purely a legal matter, and asked all parties not to provoke him.
“In my opinion, this is purely a legal issue regarding land ownership which is claimed by PT Sentul City as the rightful land owner and has a valid legal basis,” Junimart said when contacted, Friday (10/9/2021).
Junimart, who is also the Chair of the Land Mafia Committee II DPR RI, said that the land issue between PT Sentul City and Rocky Gerung was related to arable land. In fact, he said, by law, there is no legal basis for the status of arable land.
“It means, if it is arable land, the meaning is to work on other people’s land with clear legal grounds without rights and work on other people’s land and/or state land with permission. By law, we do not know the legal basis for the status of arable land,” he said.
Furthermore, the PDIP politician revealed that the land case that happened to Rocky was the government’s entry point to investigate and resolve the administrative aspects of this problem.
“Law enforcement officers are asked to apply the rules criminally, as well as uncover the land mafia according to the orders of the resident and the National Police Chief,” he explained.
Meanwhile, regarding the statement of the Democrat politician, Andi Arief, who said that the Rocky uni land issue was politically motivated, Junimart felt it was a form of provocation.
According to him, the accusations also tend to form a misguided opinion regarding the issue.
“Pulling this land issue into the political realm is a provocative pattern and disrupts public order, and seeks to form misguided opinions for clashes in society. People who have this mindset need to be investigated for their motives and should not be allowed to go,” said the PDIP elite.
This PDIP politician was surprised because Rocky Gerung actually built a house on arable land. According to him, the building certainly does not have a permit.
Previously, PT Sentul City asked Rocky Gerung to demolish the house in Bojong Koneng Village, Sentul, Bogor Regency. Democratic politician Andi Arief defends Rocky Gerung.
“PT. Sentul City is very arrogant. The government begs to check the origin of their land ownership,” Andi said in a tweet distributed to reporters, Friday (10/9/2021).
The chairman of the Democratic Party’s Election Winning Body suspects that there is a political motive behind Sentul City’s order to Rocky Gerung to demolish his house in Bojong Koneng Village. According to him, Rocky Gerung wants to be silenced.
“Political motives must be behind this case plus greed. Rocky Gerung’s critical attitude wants to be banned. It is appropriate to fight this with big action,” said Andi Arief.
