After shuttering the Alexis hotel and entertainment center in Ancol, North Jakarta, the Jakarta administration plans to close down two more entertainment businesses found to be violating Gubernatorial Decree No. 18/2018 on the operation of tourism enterprises.
The plan was revealed by Jakarta Public Order Agency head Yani Wahyu Purwoko at City Hall after dispatching 30 female personnel on Thursday to make sure that Alexis had been closed, as instructed by Governor Anies Baswedan on March 23.
“I have received a recommendation letter from Jakarta Tourism Agency to close two entertainment venues, one massage parlor and one nightclub, in West Jakarta,” Yani said as quoted by tribunnews.com, while declining to elaborate.
According to the new decree about the operation of tourism enterprises, the Jakarta administration can shut down any businesses proven to accommodate drug trafficking or use, human trafficking and prostitution, as well as gambling.
The administration does not have to provide a warning to the business owners. (vny)
