INDUSTRY.co.id - Palu - Director General of Immigration Directorate General of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Ronny F Sompie intimidate a team of foreign surveillance (Timpora) can be established to the village level in Central Sulawesi Province.

Head of the Immigration Office of Palu Suparman said on Wednesday (11/15/2017) Director General of Immigration Ronny F Sompie during a visit to Palu City a few days ago suggested that Timpora not only be formed at the provincial and district / city levels.

When Timpora is formed up to the village level, the information that will be received from the public regarding the presence of foreigners in the regions will be more and can facilitate the relevant institutions to conduct supervision and action.

However, Suparman said to form Timpora to the sub-district and village levels is not as easy as turning a palm.

At the kabupaten / kota level only takes a long time because it is related to a limited budget.

Especially, if Timpora formed up to the village level "It requires substantial funds," he said.

So far in providing services and supervision of foreigners, the Immigration is still quite difficult to reach all corners from 13 districts / cities.

Only three districts are close to Palu namely Sigi, Donggala and Parigi Moutong that are reachable, while other distant districts, some are up to 600km from Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi province, the supervision of foreigners is done occasionally.

The formation of Timpora in all districts / cities in Central Sulawesi is expected to make it easier to supervise and prosecute various immigration violations and foreign workers.

In Central Sulawesi, Suparman said over the past two years, many foreign workers, especially from China, worked in various mining companies in several districts in the province, for example in Morowali and North Morowali districts.

It is expected that the existing Timpora in the area can conduct supervision in accordance with the respective institutions tupoksi.

He also added that since the formation of Timpora at provincial, district and city levels in Central Sulawesi, many troubled foreigners have been arrested and deported to their home countries.
