Although judged to be too late because it has fallen victim, YLKI still appreciate criminal law enforcement to First Travel case.

According to Tulus, until Friday morning YLKI has received more than 22,000 complaints of umrah candidates for various travel agencies.

"Majority is a prospective Umrah First Travel participant who reached 18,000 complaints," he said.

Therefore, YLKI urged Police Bareskrim to enforce the law against other travel agencies that are also considered problematic and harm consumers.

Sincerely mention the name of one travel agency that has embezzled 3,055 candidates umrah and other travel agents whose complaint to YLKI reaches 1,800 people.
