Bandung, W Java (ANTARA News) – The House Speaker, Bambang Soesatyo, has urged the national police to take anticipatory action against groups or civil society organizations that try to extort Eid al-Fitr allowances (THR) from business sectors.

Bambang also hoped that police at the regional and resort levels are responsive to community reports, including reports on THR demand by certain groups to business actors.
