Jakarta (ANTARA News) - A group of small retail traders from Pasar Melawai in the Blok M area in south Jakarta demonstrated at the Jakarta City Legislative Council (DPRD DKI) building on Wednesday to protest against the presence of a Carrefour hypermarket in the same building where they are operating.

Accompanied by activists of a number of small traders` advocacy organizations, representatives of the traders` group said the Carrefour hypermarket was a threat to their businesses.

"We have filed a lawsuit, reported to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the Business Competition Supervisory Commission (KPPU), State Audit Board (BPK) and Commission B of the City Legilsative Council. And they said Carrefour had no permit," said Sujianto, chairman of the Federation of Indonesian Market Traders Organizations ((FOPPI).

The Melawai traders said Carrefour had violated a city administration regulation on private marketplace affairs issued in 2002 stipulating that hypermarkets cannot be set up within a distance of less than 2.5 kilometers from a traditional market.

"But in Melawai, Carrefour is operating in the same building as small traders who now feel threatened," Sujianto said.

Aliman Aat, chairman of the City Legislative Council`s Commission B, who received a delegation of the protesters, said he would check with economic affairs bureau of the city administration whether Carrefour really lacked a permit to operate at Melawai.

Meanwhile, the Melawai traders said they would continue to demonstrate at the City Legislative Council building if the city authorities did not revoke the permits of hypermarkets that had violated the 2002 regulation on their proper location.(*)
