CARICOM and Indonesia strengthen links

Indonesia’s first Ambassador to CARICOM HE Dr. Dominicus Supratikto presents his letters of credence to Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin LaRocque

Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Ambassador Irwin LaRocque described the presentation of credentials by Indonesia’s Ambassador as “a hallmark in relations” between the Community and Indonesia.

His Excellency Drs. Dominicus Supratikto, became the first Ambassador of Indonesia to CARICOM when he presented his letters of credence to the Secretary-General on Wednesday at the CARICOM Secretariat Headquarters, Georgetown, Guyana. Ambassador Supratikto is based in Suriname.

Ambassador LaRocque said that with this accreditation, relations between Indonesia and CARICOM would only go from strength to strength. Both the Secretary-General and Ambassador Supratikto agreed that climate change was one area that lent itself to co-operation.

The Ambassador noted that the forming of official links allowed for more engagement between the two parties and this latest initiative was in keeping with Indonesia’s thrust to extend relations with non-traditional partners.

    In Indonesia, they have given police and death squads free permission to kill anyone found dealing in drugs. At will. anyhow they hear that you selling or using, it can be half a joint they hear you was smoking. Death be unto you. Their president upholds these actions even though many human rights groups have protested these killings. There is a segment on Vice TV which highlights Indonesia.

      I know that Indonesia also occasionally executes people for drug dealing, but are you sure you’re not referring to the barbaric Duterte regime in the Philippines, which behaves exactly as you describe?
