Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Regional Board of Jakarta's Public Transport Organization (Organda DKI) had issued warnings on the presence of Uber Taxi for several times, as it is considered unauthorized on specific or special licenses.

"From the violations, it's very clear that the Uber Taxi operational which took the form of application is a violation of the general and special licenses," said the Head of Regional Board of Organda DKI, Shafruhan Sinungan, in the release received by Metrotvnews.com, Sunday (6/21/2015).

Generally, Uber Taxi had breached Law No. 22 Year 2009 on Traffic and Road Transportation, as well as Government Regulation No. 74 Year 2014 on public transportation organizers.

"Govt. Regulation No. 74 Year 2014 on public transportation organizers clearly stated that operators for public transport, both for people and goods, should possess legal basis whether it is a corporation (PT) or cooperation  unit (Koperasi)," Shafruhan elaborated.

Specifically, Uber Taxi violated Ministerial Decree No. 35 Year 2003 and Jakarta Governor's Decree No. 1026 Year 1991. "They arranged firmly on the criteria of public transportation, especially taxis with various specification requirements and regulations," he continued.

Aside from that, from criminal law perspective, Uber Taxi is considered conducting fraud. "What is offered to users are taxis, but the vehicle arriving are not taxis but private cars. And it is not included in taxi specifications as arranged in government regulations," Shafruhan stated.

Uber Taxi is a taxi service available for public through downloaded mobile phone applications to order. Indonesian Club NGO had also reported Uber Taxi application service to the Police's Criminal Investigation Bureau.

A representative from Uber Taxi had met with Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) in his office earlier on Friday (6/19), requesting an explanation on the imposed operational ban. (Eps)
