Situation of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Manado



Manado is one of the tourist cities in Indonesia. Exotic islands that make the tourists in the country and abroad flocked to enjoy the natural beauty of Manado owned.

However, it is common knowledge to people that women Manado Manado is a "salable commodity" outside the region as well as for the newcomers. With the state of the tourists who like this will only lead to more open access to commercially sexually exploit children.
Specifically to the city of Manado can be revealed that this region is an area that has been the area of origin, transit and destination for trafficking. Manado city by migrants outside always provide feedback and suggest that this region has a characteristic and uniqueness that makes any newcomer feel amazed, because the people of Manado has properties that are very friendly and open. But behind it all there are many immigrants who come to Manado only for the purpose of sex tourism. By naked eyes we can see the youth association in the city of Manado dusk till dawn which was very alarming. Many means of entertainment Pub, Disco, Karaoke in Manado has fueled the youth to enjoy the entertainment facilities. In fact many are certain elements that utilize age children and adolescents to be wooed and coaxed and adults are invited into the environment that can change the mindset of children and youth to turn towards the truth is still not feasible.
Cause these kids is caught CSEC motivation to look for money in terms of income due to dropping out of school; additional income and for the interaction between friends. The tendency of the victims when interviewed made clear that all of them do not live at home and just boarding, because they generally are migrants from outside the school and college Manado in Manado. The main reason is due to economic factors, but in fact the tendency of city lifestyle has influenced the victim to want the money pretty much, so they can be together with her other friends to get entertained by watching or visiting discotheques. Was originated from the desire to come and go to places of entertainment they are able to become acquainted with many people, especially men who have ensnared unwittingly them to become victims of CSEC.
Judging from the background of the age of the victim turns 18 years old this case dominated by the percentage of 50% of all cases, however, the age of 17 years is quite a lot with the percentage of 36%. But it turns out that very young age that it was 15 years and 16% at 2 years of 12% already there who are victims of CSEC.

When viewed from the educational backgrounds of most of the victims turned out to victims of CSEC, 62% had high school, and each student and junior high as 16%, while no longer in school by 6%.

Problems of early marriage, which is assumed to also affect a person trapped in CSEC is not found in this case. All of the victims are those who have never been married. In a very early age most of them are still undergoing school and college. For those who are not in school anymore motivation that there are likely more in an attempt to get money.
Cultural stereotype that has been providing the people of Manado encourage outsiders to come to Manado only in order to enjoy sex tourism to be promoted covertly by the manager of the hotel, lodging and entertainment venues.

The modus operandi of the perpetrators was to "ensnare" the children are victims of CSEC in Mando is as follows:

• The role of taxi drivers and motorcycle taxi in the city of Manado big enough to be a "broker" in the business of CSEC. The taxi drivers and taxis generally have known residence of the victim, because the taxi drivers and taxis often wait or "hung" around entertainment areas and the hotel until late at night between the hours of 01:00 until 02:30, so the frequency is high enough to meet.
When they are in place and pub entertainment, general entertainment and pub owners already know and know well the victims, so that the "supervisor" or "pimp" or "GM" is ready to be a "broker" in a transaction with the victim. They generally have separate names in entertainment everywhere they go, and the name will be different if they were in other places of entertainment. Because the perpetrators of CSEC every month they will move where, but the location of the transaction is often used as a way boulevard surrounding area.
Besides that, for hotel managers in the city of Manado honestly have a list and addresses of the perpetrators of CSEC are kept private and confidential, so if in the future they need actors for entertainment customers, it will be immediately available perpetrators dihubungi.Kecenderungan through the data are usually 78% of their activity after carrying out transactions in the hotel in the city of Manado and 14% in place of lodging. According to them, those who get the advantage of "broker" in the entertainment venues and pubs, taxi drivers and motorcycle taxi. For general motorcycle taxi drivers and they ask for a tip of the actors, and even some who claim to get a "bonus" if the sex offender is able to give customers a good enough reward.

Following up on the law on human trafficking crime number 21 of 2007 which followed up with the publication of Regulation Manado City level on Protection of Children from Commercial Sexual Exploitation, seeking a unified policy on the prevention of trafficking and the trafficking of minors for commercial sexual purposes across district / city ​​in North Sulawesi, Minahasa especially with trade suppliers who have indicated to the city of Manado.

culinary tour lombok


Lombok, the beautiful little island just throw the boat from Bali. The place I was born, a place famous for its beautiful beaches besides also famous for its spiciness cooking. Who is not familiar with spicy dried chillies are dried in an oven Lombok became nan food ingredients Taliwang spicy chicken and spinach pelecing. Popularity Taliwang chicken and spinach pelecing as "obscure" the culinary riches of others on the island of Lombok. One of my favorite is the satay AMPET. Sate AMPET actually very easy to find throughout the city of Mataram. Many peddled around to surrounding housing, by using the "basket" contains dozens of ato hundreds skewer complete with bakarannya and belayak. "Basket" is carried on the head. Usually the seller also complement pelecing wares with kale. Belayak Lombok Island is typical rice cake wrapped in banana leaves but not with palm leaves (leaf). Stud me to satay skewers AMPET is a collection of vendors in tourist areas AMPET Suranadi. Suranadi first is his Ground Mataram. It is not too far from the city of Mataram makes it one of the favorite places to "escape" from work fatigue. Back when I was a kid, the air in this place feel very cold. But now it was hot during the day, although the flow of the river flowing there still feels very cold .. nyesss .. Mothers AMPET satay vendors here are consistently using the "basket" on merchandise even though they no longer need to walk around to peddle his wares. Thanks to the government that has built a comfortable place for them hawker selling here. In the surrounding merchants AMPET satay can also be easily found by the typical food vendors Suranadi. As different types of lunkhead jackfruit lunkhead to lunkhead Sarikaya .. essentially complete .. Back to satay AMPET. Sate AMPET according to my observations have an equal level with sate kere in Jogjakarta. Sate is made of the rest of the rest of the meat (not meat the former .. but the remaining pieces of meat) which are then processed with a good ... so so delicious meal. Either cuman three, satay bowel (intestine usually beef), beef or mixed. The meat was cut into small thin tend to speed up the ripening process. Jerohannya quality was not playing games, intestine that had been cleaned and cut into small portions then ditusuki easy to eat .. very tempting. Process is simple, select your satay then the seller will burn it to suit our tastes like dry or just until cooked alone. Then be washed down with a spice satay skewers AMPET are actually similar to chicken seasoning Taliwang just use coconut milk in more servings a distinguishing. How to eat it too simple, does not need a spoon or fork. Take belayak, open the wrapping part and then with the hand holding the belayak still wrapped, belayak "dicolekkan" into satay seasoning, and "hap" belayak are already "covered" spice eaten with satay skewers accompanied piece. Or it could be used in other ways, then cut open the entire belayak little small with a skewer and "Throw" in a "puddle" satay seasoning then one by one small piece belayak stabbed and eaten with the help of a skewer .... It was so delicious? Of course spicy. Seasoning orange provocative enough to describe it. Feels so trail coconut and pecans in this satay spices, belayak which tend to be "tasteless" to be the perfect companion for this spice. Whether dry or sweet tender meat of your choice any soft intestinal satay can definitely steal your heart .... Delicious ... Still in around Suranadi, there is a restaurant that has existed ever since I can remember. Eating is the name of the restaurant Suranadi. The concept of the family meal was very comfortable. We can choose to sit in a restaurant or at Saung Saung which is in the eating. The atmosphere is very family, sit down "leyeh-leyeh" at Saung under the rambutan tree while waiting for the food itself was a delight. The quality of the food, of course the quality of champions. Cooking menu had not changed since I first came here. The food at the messages in the set menu. 1 set can feed about 3-5 people depending on the capacity of the stomach and the level of "kegembulan". Each set adequately describe the diversity of food typical of Lombok Island. Each set consists of pelecing kale, glutton chicken, fried chicken, scrambled eggs, soup and chili. We can order extra fried fish or grilled fish are delicious at this place. Fried chicken do not play play. Clear chicken flavored chicken fried chicken and then fried to a dry plain. But in this simplicity lies its strength. Chicken savory salty delight. If ati ampelanya until there must always be a bone of contention for me and my brothers when I was little. Champion for me is chicken glutton. Chicken that "disuwir" little smaller then cooked in a spicy seasoning bersantan then topped with freshly squeezed lemon juice. It was spicy but not too spicy with caresses fresh coconut milk and lime kick at the end made my childhood was "brave" chicken eating glutton. ... Very impressive ... Pelecingnya? should not be asked. Pelecing kale at home with all the "kelombokannya". Watercress mataram jumbo-sized, long beans, and bean sprouts in give "stack" coconut sambal, fitted pea sauce then washed pelecing already famous ... outstanding spiciness .. klo we eat by hand do not forget to wash your hands with soap and clean clean. If not, trace the smell of hot chilli and shrimp paste will continue to "haunt" us for the next few hours. The food is just for the chili and bellied be "bold" but once we fell in love
