BOGOR today | After the disclosure of the case of gurandil (unlicensed gold miners) conducted by the Bogor Criminal Investigation Unit on Monday (01/13), this time a combination of Bogor Police and TNI personnel led directly by the Bogor Police Chief AKBP Muhamad Joni, SIK , M.Si closed dozens of unlicensed gold mining holes (PETI) in Bantar Karet Village, Nanggung District.
The number of gold miners without permits / PETI (Gurandil) in West Bogor is indeed quite a lot, but the most concerning is in this Nanggung District,” said the Bogor Police Chief.
Akbp M. Joni said again, that the closure of the illegal gold miner hole was the result of collaboration and synergy with the Muspida as well as with the state company (PT.Antam Tbk) which manages legal gold mining business activities. Related to the impact or the direct effect of this illegal act which is one of the factors in the occurrence of landslides in the Sukajaya and Jasinga regions, it is still in the study stage of the ESDM office and the Director General. Because of the river flow and geographical boundaries between the Nanggung District area and the District area affected by the last landslide disaster (01/01), far apart.
But based on the results of our observation together with the Muspida, that there are indeed Gurandil holes that cause landslides around the Gurandil hole itself. So if it is correlated directly about its impact in Sukajaya and Jasinga Districts, of course there must be a study. Coupled with the nickname City and Regency of Bogor as “City of Rain”.
Highrainfall for up to 18 hours of course is also a factor in the landslide that occurred, said Bogor Police Chief AKBP M.Joni.
So that one by one the cause of the landslide factor was formulated together with the Bogor District Government Stakeholders, particularly in terms of law enforcement carried out by the Bogor Police for illegal gold miners (PETI).
“It’s clear that our law enforcement activities are, of course, thanks to the collaboration and synergy between the Bogor Police Precinct, 0621 Kodim, the Bogor District Government up to the District level and the ranks of the Sector Police.
Bhabinkamtibmas who served as a security supervisor at the village / kelurahan level also took part in this activity through appeals and appeals to the flow of raw materials, infrastructure facilities used in processing gold without a permit which generally violated Article 158 Jo. Article 37 and or Article 161 of the Republic of Indonesia Law No. 4 of 2009 concerning Mineral and Coal Mining, said Bogor Police Chief AKBP Muhammad Joni, SIK, MSi. (Monti)
