MoEF's Law Enforcement Agency Confiscates Four Protected Apes From an Illegal Owner in Jakarta (August 11, 2017)
Posted on 16:47 August 11th, 2017


The Security and Law Enforcement Agency for environment and forestry crimes at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) confiscated four protected apes from an illegal owner in Pekayon village, Pasar Rebo, Jakarta today (11/8). The four animals consist of 3 heads of Javan leaf monkey (Presbytis comate), and one Silver leaf monkey (Trachypithecuns auratus).

 An officer of the MoEF’s Security and Law Enforcement Agency for Java and Bali, Saptawi Sunarya, told the press that the confiscation was carried out by the agency with support from the local community, the Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group and Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN).

The Director of Wildlife Trade Monitoring at Scorpion Foundation, Marison Guciano, appeals to those who still keep protected animals in their homes to immediately hand them over to government related agencies for rehabilitation and release back in the wild.

 “Based on Law No. 5 of 1990 Article 21 paragraph 2, whoever intentionally trade protected animals, could be sentenced up to 5 years in prison and a fine of IDR100,000,000 (USD7,400),” Marison told the press after the confiscation.
