INDUSTRY.co.id - Solo - President Joko Widodo admits there is still a lot of homework to enforce unfinished human rights by the government.

"I realize there is still a lot of big work, homework on human rights enforcement that has not been completed yet, including human rights violations," said President Joko Widodo in Solo, Central Java, Sunday (10/12/2017).

The President made the remarks during the commemoration of the 69th World Human Rights Day in Solo attended by Minister of Justice and Human Rights Yasonna H Laoly, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing Basuki Hadimuljono, Chief of Staff of President Teten Masduki, special staff of President of Communication Johan Budi Sapto Pribowo, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo and other officials.

Some unresolved human rights violations, for example, the mysterious shootings of 1982-1985, the forced disappearances of 1997-1998, the May 1998 riots, the Trisakti, Semanggi I and Semanggi II events and others.

"This requires all of our work, the joint work between the central and local governments and all components of society and with our joint work on human rights justice, we bring social justice to all the people of Indonesia," said the President.

However, President Jokowi admitted that there have been many government efforts to provide basic services for the community.

"Starting from the distribution of Indonesia Smart Card (KIP) that has been given to 17.9 million children from poor families, the national health insurance through Healthy Indonesia Card (KIS) is now more than 92.4 million beneficiaries," said the President.

In addition, there is still the fulfillment of the rights of local communities, rights of indigenous peoples who are serious concern of the government.

"The government has granted management rights to customary lands, customary forests, to local communities and indigenous peoples," the President said.

The President also appreciates the hard efforts of all those who have made a real contribution to upholding human rights principles in Indonesia, appreciating the governors, the mayors, the regents who are developing "human rights cities" and developing human rights areas.

"And thanks to Komnas HAM, and other Komnas-Komnas and fellow human rights activists who constantly strive for a sense of community justice. Happy World Human Rights Day and welcome to work together to build a solid human rights foundation for a just Indonesia for a prosperous Indonesia to Prosperous Indonesia," the President told media crews in Solo.

The President also submitted awards to provinces, districts and municipalities that ranked human rights based on the assessment of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, namely Central Java Province, Bangka Belitung Province, West Sulawesi Province, Tapin Regency, Sangihe Islands Regency, Surakarta City, Gunung Sitoli City, Bekasi.
