During the hearing, 35-year-old Felix was not accompanied by his lawyer team.

      Due to this situation, Isnurul Syamsul Arif, who headed the panel of judges, ordered the public prosecutor to provide the defendant with a lawyer and a translator. Arif then announced the adjournment of the court proceeding until March 4.

      Felix was arrested at the Zainuddin Abdul Madjid International Airport on Sept 21, 2018, for carrying a package containing 2,477.95 grams of methylenedioxy methamphetamine (MDMA), 206.83 grams of ketamine, and 256.69 grams of amphetamine. The airport's Customs and Excise authorities who checked Felix's luggage and hand carriage also found 850 ecstasy pills.

      In connection with Felix's drug case, Head of the West Nusa Tenggara High Court's Narcotics Unit Ginung Pratidina stated recently that Felix had been proven to have brought the drugs while arriving at the airport. Ginung Pratidina further revealed that Felix was not a drug user as his urine test was negative for drugs. Therefore, he was not charged with Article 127 of Law No.35 of 2009 on Narcotics, which regulates matters related to drug users.

      Indonesia remains perceived by both local and trans-national drug dealers as their potential market because of its huge population and millions of drug users. The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) noted that some 50 Indonesians die of illicit drugs every day, while the total number of drug users in the country has reached seven million.

      The value of the drug trade in the country is estimated to have reached at least Rp66 trillion. Considering the above reality, drug trafficking activities have appeared to be an ongoing threat to Indonesia's security and human resources.

              "The tarekat people also exist to perfect humanity to become the best human beings, clean from shirk," he explained.

                          Hashim explained that Prabowo's closeness with different components of the nation's was aimed at embracing all ethnic groups, religions, groups and races in an effort to strengthen the values ​​of the Republic of Indonesia and Pancasila. He said that social inequality and injustice in society could be used by certain elements to incite the disintegration of the nation.

                          Hashim also reiterated that Pancasila was not merely about beliefs as stated in the first principle. There were also four other interrelated precepts that have become the noble ideals of the founding fathers.

                          Therefore, it was necessary to maintain the Pancasila as the ideology and glue of the nation so that Indonesia would not disintegrate like the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia.

                          "It is necessary to understand that the current condition of the nation is on the verge of disintegration if economic, political, legal, and social inequalities are widening," said the youngest child of the couple Prof. Dr. Soemitro Djojohadikusumo and Dora Sigar.

                          REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, PONTIANAK -- Deputy Chairman of the Gerindra Party Board of Patrons, Hashim Djojohadikusumo, asserted that presidential candidate number 02 Prabowo Subianto, is a figure who strongly held the values ​​of Pancasila. Moreover, Prabowo spent more than half his age as a soldier, he said.

                          Therefore, it was impossible for Prabowo to leave Pancasila, let alone establish a khilafah state. Hashim made the statement to answer slander aimed at Prabowo amid the frenzy of the 2019 presidential election.

                          Prabowo's proximity to the Islamic groups that supported him as the presidential candidate was deemed as the gate to establishment of the khilafah state.

He described Sheikh Yusuf as a figure of great ulema, fighters, and tarekat leaders.

                                      He recounted that Sheikh Yusuf was the son-in-law of Sultan Alauddin, Gowa, who had fought with Sultan Hasanuddin Makassar against the Dutch.

                                      "Sultan Hasanuddin was then deceived and captured by the Dutch. He (Sheikh Yusuf) fled to Banten and joined the fight with Sultan Agung Tirtayasa," he explained in Makassar on Thursday.

                                      Then, Sheikh Yusuf and Sultan Tirtayasa were also deceived. Sultan Tirtayasa was detained in Batavia, while Sheikh Yusuf was banished to South Africa, he remarked.

                                      "He was a warrior who did not just stop, until he was banished to South Africa but he was not afraid," Ma'ruf noted.

                                      According to Ma'ruf, Sheikh Yusuf is a hero who can be a role model. In fact, he explained that Sheikh Yusuf was an international hero.

                                      Sheikh Yusuf obtained the title of national hero in 1955. The South African government also recorded Sheikh Yusuf as the hero of that country for the latter's contribution and struggle to fight colonialism.

                                      The title of South African hero was given when South African President Jacob Zuma met Indonesia's 5th president Megawati Soekarnoputri in Jalan Teuku Umar, Jakarta, in March 2017. Zuma revealed that the title of hero was given to Sheikh Yusuf because of his struggle for the people of South Africa.

                                      Former president of South, Africa Nelson Mandela, also mentioned Sheikh Yusuf as an inspiring figure for his struggle for South Africans.

Wearing a Batik shirt, Hermansyah and his wife, Ashanti, met with Dhani, who is being jailed at the Medaeng Penitentiary while awaiting the completion of the trial process of his defamation case.

                                          During the two-hour meeting with the top composer, musician, and founder of popular rock band Dewa 19, Anang said he encouraged Dhani to get closer spiritually to Almighty Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala and become more reflective to face what has transpired with him. Anang, also known as a composer and musician-turned-politician, encouraged Dhani to remain more steadfast and patient in facing his destiny.

                                          The presence of the celebrity couple at the Medaeng Prison has extended the list of important figures, who had visited Dhani to extend their deepest sympathies and moral support. Among Dhani's guests were the pair of presidential and vice presidential candidates, Prabowo Subianto and his running mate, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno.

                                          Sandiaga had visited Dhani on Feb 16, while Prabowo met him at the prison, with maximum capacity of just some 700 inmates, on Feb 19. Speaking to journalists after his visit, Sandiaga expressed his serious concern over the fact that Dhani had been jailed in the penitentiary that is currently facing the problem of overcapacity.

                                          "I hope that Dhani would remain resilient in facing the entire trial process. The legal procedures that he should undergo also demand mental strength," he emphasized.

                                          Dhani, cadre of the Prabowo Subianto-led Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party, has been facing another hate speech trial after calling his political rivals "idiot." The Surabaya prosecutor's office charged the musician for a statement made on his Instagram account.

                                          "Those, who are protesting defend the ruler. It is funny. These are the idiots protesting against people, who are not in power," according to the video containing Dhani's statement.

                                          Before being transferred to the Medaeng Prison in Sidoarjo District on February 7, 2019, Dhani was jailed at the Jakarta-based Cipinang Prison after being found guilty of a hate speech tweet on his Twitter account. He was awarded a 1.5-year prison term by the South Jakarta Court on Jan 28 this year.

                                          His tweet in March 2017, considered a hate speech, read: "Those supporting blasphemy are bastards who need to be spit on their faces." Dhani had appealed to a higher court, but the judge decided that he must be immediately imprisoned after the Jakarta Court trial.

                                          The presence of the celebrity couple at the Medaeng Prison has extended the list of important figures, who had visited Dhani to extend their deepest sympathies and moral support. Among Dhani's guests were the pair of presidential and vice presidential candidates, Prabowo Subianto and his running mate, Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno.

                                          Sandiaga had visited Dhani on Feb 16, while Prabowo met him at the prison, with maximum capacity of just some 700 inmates, on Feb 19. Speaking to journalists after his visit, Sandiaga expressed his serious concern over the fact that Dhani had been jailed in the penitentiary that is currently facing the problem of overcapacity.

                                          "I hope that Dhani would remain resilient in facing the entire trial process. The legal procedures that he should undergo also demand mental strength," he emphasized.

                                          Dhani, cadre of the Prabowo Subianto-led Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party, has been facing another hate speech trial after calling his political rivals "idiot." The Surabaya prosecutor's office charged the musician for a statement made on his Instagram account.

                                          "Those, who are protesting defend the ruler. It is funny. These are the idiots protesting against people, who are not in power," according to the video containing Dhani's statement.

                                          Before being transferred to the Medaeng Prison in Sidoarjo District on February 7, 2019, Dhani was jailed at the Jakarta-based Cipinang Prison after being found guilty of a hate speech tweet on his Twitter account. He was awarded a 1.5-year prison term by the South Jakarta Court on Jan 28 this year.

                                          His tweet in March 2017, considered a hate speech, read: "Those supporting blasphemy are bastards who need to be spit on their faces." Dhani had appealed to a higher court, but the judge decided that he must be immediately imprisoned after the Jakarta Court trial.

According to PTFI spokesman Riza Pratama the management had no plan to reduce the number of workers, though he admitted that the Grasberg open-pit mine in Tembagapura area, operated since 1990s, would be closed.

                                                  In future, PTFI will focus entirely on developing its underground mining operations, and the concentrate production of this Papua Province-based gold and copper miner could not yet be optimized for two years until 2020, he revealed.

                                                  "The next two years will be a transitional process during which the (concentrate) production of FTPI's underground mining operations cannot yet be optimized. Thereafter, we expect that the production will steadily increase," he stated here on Thursday.

                                                  Hence, within these two years, PTFI will prioritize the supplies of its concentrate to a copper smelter plant in Gresik, East Java, while the end of the Grasberg mining operations might trigger a drastic decline in PTFI's production until 2020.

                                                  This condition will have an impact on the company's gross revenue. It implies that the allocated funds for financing the partnership and empowerment programs for local residents around the mining areas in Mimika District will also be affected.

                                                  The Indonesian Government has given PTFI five years to complete the construction of its copper smelter plant in Gresik, whose designed capacity is two million DTM of concentrate per year and 460 thousand tons of cathode copper. PTFI has again drawn public attention after several laid-off employees staged a protest in Jakarta for more than a week.

                                                  On Feb 13, three laid-off employees of this gold and copper miner were finally received by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) after nine days of staying in a tent that they had set up not far from the State Palace in Central Jakarta. The three former workers, who represented other laid-off workers of the Papua Province-based gold and copper miner, were Jerry Yarangga, leader of PTFI's ex-employees; Stefen Yawan, ex-dump truck operator; and Oktoia Yeimo, former engine operator.

                                                  According to Yarangga, they were received by Jokowi when he and his two colleagues reported to the president about the inhumane treatment of laid-off workers by the PTFI management. Hence, they begged the president to grant them justice by encouraging the mining company's management to address its employees' normative rights and re-recruit them, so that they could work again, he stated.

                                                  Their presence in Jakarta is aimed at fighting for justice and their normative rights after being laid off by PTFI, a mining company that explores for ore containing copper, gold, and silver in the Grasberg minerals district in Papua Province.

                                                  PTFI, which employs some 30 thousand people, was quoted on its official website as saying that it will "ramp up production from two new large-scale, high-grade underground mines" over the next two years.

                                                  "We expect production in the Grasberg District to be double the 2019 levels by 2021," CEO of Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (FCX) Richard Adkerson was quoted as saying.

The 13 suspects comprised three elements of the Jambi Provincial DPRD leadership, who were named as suspects, specifically Chairman of the DPRD Cornelis Buston (CB), Deputy Chairperson of the AR Syahbandar DPRD (ARS), and Deputy Chairperson of the Chumaidi Zaidi DPRD (CZ).

                                                      The KPK had earlier processed five people as suspects until convicted in the Corruption Court, with the first being Regional Assistant 3 of Jambi Province Saipudin based on a High Court decision of three years sentence and a fine of Rp100 million, with subsidiary imprisonment of three months.

                                                      The second was Acting Regional Secretary of the Jambi Provincial Government Erwan Malik, who was awarded a criminal sentence by the High Court of three years and six months and a fine of Rp100 million, with subsidiary imprisonment of three months.

                                                      The third was Acting Head of the Arfan PUPR Service, for whom the High Court had announced a three-year criminal sentence and Rp100 million fine, with subsidiary imprisonment of three months.

                                                      The fourth was member of the Jambi Provincial DPRD Supriyono, who were announced a District Court verdict of six years' imprisonment, a fine of Rp400 million, and revocation of rights to be elected to public office for five years since the defendant finished serving his main sentence.

PT Freeport Indonesia spokesman Riza Pratama stated that the ranks were preparing a reply letter to Papua Governor Lukas Enembe, who had earlier called on the company to reinstate ex-employees and grant their rights by paying salaries to those who were on strike since May 2017.

                                                          "We are preparing a letter to the governor. In principle, the position of the company is that we encourage the ex-employee to take legal action through the Industrial Relations Court (PHI)," Pratama explained in Timika on Thursday.

                                                          Pratama, who is also the vice president of PT Freeport Indonesia in Corporate Communication, noted that the solution through the PHI channel was deemed the best one to end the long-running polemic over the problems affecting 2,300 former Freeport permanent employees.

                                                          "We think it is the best way. Our position has not changed so far," he remarked.

                                                          He stated that the Freeport management respected the letter of Papua Governor Enembe, dated December 19, 2018, which was only handed over to the ex-employees, or moker employees, in mid-February 2019. Pratama emphasized that the company had taken various steps and efforts to respond to thousands of employees' strike cases since May 2017, including consulting with the Ministry of Manpower and the SPSI Center for Chemical, Energy and Mining Unions (SP-KEP) in Jakarta.

                                                          "The various parties have agreed to the actions we have taken. This is because the length of time we give to our friends is quite long, starting from April to December 2017," he stated.

                                                          The company has also encouraged them to work again through our contractors, but most of them do not seem keen to take the opportunity. Hence, the settlement, through the PHI path, may be the best way, Pratama further elaborated. The labor conflict in PT Freeport arose after the government no longer extended the concentrate export permit in mid-January 2017.

                                                          At the same time, PT Freeport also could not send 40 percent of its concentrate production to a smelting processing plant in the Smelter Gresik company, East Java, as it was not operating at that time. In response to this condition, the PT Freeport management then took efficiency measures, one of them being by laying off several employees.

                                                          "At that time, we did not conduct termination of employment/layoffs of employees and only sent off a few employees. The company still paid salaries to the laid-off employees. Until now, there are those who still receive salaries, some have taken retirement packages, while some are temporarily in retirement," Pratama noted.

                                                          The Freeport management's decision to lay off some of the employees, also known as "furlough policies," triggered a protest reaction from the head of the SP-KEP SPSI PT Freeport Work Unit that was supported by the DPC SP KEP SPSI board of the Mimika District leader, Aser Gobay.

                                                          The SPSI management pointed out that the furlough policy applied by Freeport was outside the realm of the Indonesian labor regulations and urged the company to negotiate in advance with the union. After several meetings facilitated by the Mimika district government, both parties failed to reach an agreement, and thousands of Freeport's permanent employees and their subcontractors went on strike since May 2017 in Timika.

                                                          According to Pratama, the company considers that thousands of ex-employees, who opted for the strike, were absent or were not keen to work anymore.

                                                          "In April 2017, other groups outside the group of employees that were laid off were lost to follow-up. The company thought they would not work with us anymore," Pratama remarked.

                                                          During the strike, from May 2017 until present, the moker employees made various efforts to fight for securing their destiny, including staying put for weeks in front of the State Palace, Jakarta, to meet President Joko Widodo.
