The problem of illegal timber trade that is rampant in Indonesia is a problem that requires a solution through continuous improvement of governance. Indonesia in this regard has committed itself to eradicating illegal logging and trafficking in illegal timber through the Timber Legality Verification System (SVLK). But there are just gaps in the use of situations and conditions in committing crimes committed by individuals.
The Forestry Independent Monitoring Network (JPIK) noted that in the period 2011-2017 cases of violations of the Timber Legality Verification System (SVLK) are still rampant (download the Licensing Report for Criminal Acts) and the mode is still repeated.
Modes are used such as falsifying the Timber Legality Certificate (S-LK), borrowing flags in the use of V-Legal documents, falsifying the notification of goods exports as well as falsifying the size / segment of timber crossing and washing illegal processed wood using Processed Wood Transport Invoice documents ( FAKO).
In the JPIK report released at the end of February 2018, (Download the SVLK report: The Process Towards Defendant Governance) JPIK submitted several recommendations regarding the improvement and improvement of the SVLK, to be carried out continuously so that the credibility and accountability of the SVLK is guaranteed. The recommendation is very important and urgent to be immediately implemented by the Government and related parties, so that the credibility and accountability of the SVLK is maintained.
