Go the governor of Aceh. This will surely lead to war. He is possibly the only person in Indonesia standing up to the military. SBY surely is not.

Aceh imposes moratorium on logging

JAKARTA, The Point
Effective from Wednesday, no logging is allowed in all the forests in Aceh province as the government imposed the moratorium on logging for an indefinite time.

The moratorium was declared by Aceh Governor Irwandi Yusuf in Banda Aceh during a ceremony attended by Environment Ministry official Arman Malolonganon on Wednesday.

“The moratorium means that the logging activities are stopped temporary to form a stronger foundation for sustainable forest management and more wealth for the Aceh people,” Yusuf said, adding that managing the forests in a sustainable way would help curb the speed of global climate change and guarantee the continuation of economic development in the future.

As the realization of the moratorium, the Aceh Forestry Office has designed three steps, namely redesign, reforestation and reduction.

The redesign aims to re-inventory all the forests, while the redesign aims to create a balanced ecology.

Reforestation is replanting the logged forest, while reduction aims to curb or prevent any activity considered able to damage a forest.

On the legal side, Yusuf has asked the police to arrest anyone suspected of breaking the moratorium. “The participation of all parties, including the people and the armed forces is needed to reach the moratorium's goal.”

"Police are expected not to discriminate in the moratorium on logging,” Yusuf said.

The implementation of moratorium on logging needs coordination to enforce the law between police, military personnel and the public.

Aceh Police Chief Insp. Gen. Bahrumsyah, who was present at the declaration, said police would back up the province's commitment to enforce the law.

However, it should be made clear over the police's and military's roles in law enforcement. "We will not discriminate even if police officers are involved in illegal or legal logging.”

He also suggested that if necessary, punishment for loggers should be heavier because Aceh had declared the moratorium on logging.

The implementation of the moratorium was sparked by landslides and floods that have resulted in numerous landslides and other disasters, including the Aceh Tamiang district tragedy that destroyed 18,000 houses.

In addition, Helsinki Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) Helsinki and Law No.11/2006 on Aceh administration gives a mandate for the Aceh administration to manage natural resources independently, including forests.

Indo military. It's a litany of satan isn't it? Would we miss them really? They should break up like the Beatles and do solo projects. (Although Wiranto already tried that I guess).

It will be interesting to see how the Aceh story plays out and how it will affect the rest of the country.
