When the Blue Tent Encounters Human Rights

It was a sunny afternoon when we headed to Tenda Biru (Blue Tent), an area known for its sex workers in Bekasi, West Java. A large yard serves as the entrance to Tenda Biru, followed by some alleys. On each of the alley, there are dozens of night cafes on both sides of an alley, which comes alive from 9 pm up until sunrise at 6 am.

Together with a few colleagues from Grapiks Foundation and the Bekasi District AIDS Commission, we entered Rindu Alam, that claims to be one of the biggest cafes there. The hall was frowzy as the floor was not yet cleaned, the dogs were lying around asleep and there was only one ceiling fan that provides ventillation. At night, this hall turns into a bar that is filled with sex workers and customers.

As a group, this was our first time to meet the sex workers in Tenda Biro, where we would like to assess the situation of sex workers, especially their exercise of human rights and access to social protection. After 15 minutes of waiting, one by one, the sex workers arrived at Rindu Alam. Most of the 30 or so women, some of them are quite young while others are new in Tenda Biru.

CAVEAT, April - May 2013

In this edition, we present you – as usual – four columns of articles. In Human Rights, Law, and Politics, Muhammad Afif – LBH Masyarakat’s public defender – examines the pros and cons of the concept of judicial review (PK) in the Indonesian criminal justice system. In his article entitled Examining Judicial Review in the Indonesian Criminal Justice System, Afif first investigates the history of PK and then analyses its issues. One of these limitations is the fact that PK can only be done once. This, he argues, conflicts with the notion of justice. Afif also questions the inconsistency of PK in practice, as the prosecutor may sometimes file for PK where on paper they do not have the legal standing to do so.
