Brief narrative

On 22 October 2003, Sutiyoso, Governor of Jakarta, before a representative from National Commission for Human Rights and a head of National Commission for Child Protection, stated that there will be no eviction until Idd al-Fitr (Moslem celebration day after Ramadan). But only six hours after the statement, 1,000 local security officers still evicted 700 homes in Kali Adem. Now, hundreds of people (including children) have no choice but to live in riverboats. ---Extract from Asian Human Rights Commission Appeal FA-39-2003 (http://www.ahrchk.net/ua/mainfile.php/2003/583/)and Update.
