KOMPAS/IRENE SARWINDANINGRUM

WY (57), a resident of Kapuk Muara, North Jakarta, shows the names of the perpetrators who demanded payments of tens of millions of rupiah for the illegal installation of piped water. Later he felt cheated because the entire channel was removed even though he had paid a lot.

The Constitution mandates that the Earth, water and natural resources contained therein are controlled by the state. However, our natural resources are still being controlled by so-called mafias, or syndicates.

An investigation by Kompas last week found that the water mafia is still operating freely and taking advantage of the lack of access to clean water facilities for poor people living in slums or illegal settlements in Jakarta.
