Earlier this year, the Directorate General of Sea and Communication of the Ministry of Transportation and Indonesian National Police entered into a Memorandum of Understanding No. HK.201/1/3/DJPL/2020 or No. NK/2/1/2020 re. Implementation of Law Enforcement in Shipping Industry (“MoU”).
The MoU is to serve as a guideline to improve the coordination synergy in conducting law enforcement within the shipping industry, but recent news are indicating that the MoU presumably has caused a disturbance in the shipping industry. Our Senior Associate, Stefanny Oktaria Simorangkir, and Associate, Boni Facius Justin, outlined the content and implication of the said MoU on this Legal Alert.
