Palmoilmagazine, JAKARTA - Rosmawati boru Sagala (58) and Tio boru Silaban (47), two female smallholders from District of Indragiri Hilir (Inhil), Riau Province came by to Ombudsman Indonesian Republic in Jakarta on Monday (4/7/2022).
They were with other independent smallholders that join Jaringan Petani Sawit (JPS) and met Yeka Hendra Fatika as the commissioner of Ombudsman.
"We came by to Ombudsman to tell and protest every related instance about what we face and should be immediately called by Ombudsman," they told to Palmoilmagazine, Tuesday (5/7/2022).
Meanwhile the other smallholder, Soaduon Sitorus took every smallholder to tell and sue related instances through Ombudsman. He thought, the two female smallholders and him in JPS directly came from Riau to Jakarta by bus to struggle for their rights as smallholders.
They told some protests in the meeting with Ombudsman commissioner, Yeka Hendra, such as, the bad impacts from CPO export ban that the government did some time ago.
To Yeka, they told, the impacts still happen until now and hoped, the commissioners in Ombudsman should immediately take action to save and protect the smallholders. Ombudsman should tell that every regulation which negatively impacts to the smallholders should be immediately revoked.
Through his twitter account, Yeka got many complaints from the smallholders. He said, there is no limit to fulfill the people’s aspiration about public complaints service.
"Ombudsman tidak boleh bosan atau jenuh menerima keluhan-keluhan itu," he said in his twitternya, @yekafatika. (T5)
