That footage stories poured ex-convict case Bulog funds, Rahardi Ramelan in his village Cipinang Disadvantaged.

“Yes, because in it there are educational baseball, baseball’s okay, just behind the village rich,” said Rahardi, Wednesday (20/08/2008).

One of the stories are quite interesting diutarakannya matter of business is in prison in East Jakarta numbers. Description Rahardi described, in almost every residential block long Cipinang there are many stalls that provide all the necessities of life like a supermarket.
Various goods supplied ranging from fast food, instant noodles, coffee, rice, and wheat. In fact, fresh vegetables and necessities like toothbrush, flip-flops, and was full of drugs available. This stalls flourished because of the food supplied Prison inmates are considered less standard.
“The quality and taste is very drab, no flavor other than salt,” writes Rahardi.
When new prisons were in operation, conditions are not much different. In new prison, not allowed to cook in the room, despite the fact that there are many kitchens that operate there. There are no less than 10 stalls and stalls selling a variety of foods, such as satay stalls, grilled fish, food stall, vegetables, up to a phone repair stall.
In addition to business stalls, Rahardi also tells how the penjenguk collected money (although the numbers seikhlasnya) will now visit detained relatives. Which is, of course, being the business of the prison officers.
“It’s time to come clean about the situation in the penitentiary or other government agencies. Actors who do not always blame. System we have created such a circumstance. Required overall settlement, including the welfare of employees,” said Rahardi. When asked whether he was not afraid to reveal the practices that take place in prisons, Chairman of Indonesian Association of Prisoners is just laughing. “Enggaklah, why be afraid. I’m just writing what I know, what I experienced during my imprisonment,” he said briefly.
In addition to all the food stalls and daily necessities, one of the lively business and serve as a way to transfer the money by inmates is selling pulses. How can that be?
Family or relatives to use way to transfer a number of pulses to the cell phone number of the inmates. Pulse that has been transferred is then sold to other inmates. In order to get cash fast manner, often times the pulses are sold much cheaper than the market price.
Pulse with a value of Rp 100 thousand sold at Rp 80 thousand, and at certain times can drop to Rp 75 thousand. “Every morning and afternoon, I heard cries of ‘sympathy, emtri, Eksel cepe’. Cry is not only one time but several times and made a few people. Apparently, they are the peddlers pulse trace around the halls of LP in residential blocks, as well as itinerant traders offering satay skewers in the surrounding residential areas, “writes Rahardi.
They are used to peddle pulse is mostly “under the child”, the lowest caste among the prisoners. “Children under” rarely visited family and did not provide a financial contribution for the purposes of room. The main buyers of these pulses are officers and officials and their families.
The rise of trade credit is not due to the high level of mobile phone use in prison, but because the inmates forced their daily financial needs. At the very least, they should provide the cost for money rooms, meal money, buy water, cigarettes, and others. Not to mention for the levies that often occur.
Most of the inmates hang financial fulfillment of families who visit. Transferring money via pulses considered safest of the various “circumcision”. Imagine, if directly give cash during a visit, perhaps none are up to half the inmates.
