Sabang Aceh To Issue Import Cars Qanun

Following its declaration as a free port and a free trade zone, huge number of cars from Singapore reportedly imported through Sabang port in Sabang city, Aceh. Due to the condition, Sabang city government plans to issue operational license for the import cars, enforced in an Islamic sharia law or qanun.

“The government is designing the qanun so the import cars may increase Sabang revenue,” deputy Mayor Islamudin said Monday (Jan.24).

Without a firm qanun, city administration office unable to earn income from the import cars, he explained.

He revealed, the city government fail to gain income from the operational license as they are freely operated without official certificates. “And, for those years we put away billions of rupiah for Sabang's locally generated income,” he said disappointedly.

Teuku Syahrial, a Sabang resident, support the policy plan. He regarded Singapore-import cars, so far, being sold illegally.

“Depite Sabang government never limit number of import cars, at least we should enforce them to register operational license,” he expected.
