Jakarta, 27th August 2019 – Approaching the 10th anniversary of the enactment of Law no. 32 of 2009 concerning Environmental Protection and Management (PPLH Law), Faculty of Law, University of Indonesia (FHUI) in collaboration with the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL) held an Environmental Law Conference “Towards the Ten Years of the Law on Environmental Protection and Management: Reflections on Enforcement Environmental Law in Indonesia ”on the 26th – 27th August 2019 at the FHUI Campus Depok.
Chairman of the State Administrative Court of the Republic of Indonesia Supreme Court Dr. Supandi, S.H., M.Hum, revealed that a common obstacle encountered in solving environmental cases is the difficulty of proof. While environmental cases occur between those who have greater access to resources and those who have limited access. “Armed with a large intake of funds and pursuing short-term profits alone, of course environmental polluters will be easy to conduct research funding conducted by certain institutions that do not work objectively and put forward the facts in the field significantly.” said Supandi in the Public Lecture held by FH UI and ICEL as the opening of the Conference.
