, Jakarta - A video with the tone of protest against Operation Yustisi which took place during Large-Scale Social Restrictions or PSBB Volume 2 went viral on social media. They protested that they were fined for removing their masks while driving in a car alone.

"So I was caught earlier in the car alone, then I was stuffy because I wanted a little breath. Just like this (lowering the mask a little), please arrest it, ”said a woman named Evani in a video on Thursday, September 17, 2020.

When he was caught Operation Yustisi in the Sunter area, North Jakarta, Evani was then asked by the officers to get out of the car and head to the guard post. There, the officer then registered the data and was asked to choose what sanctions he would carry out for removing a mask, such as paying a fine or doing social work.

However, he also criticized this action because during the data collection process, Evani was collected with many people and did not comply with the call to maintain his distance. In fact, he felt that his position in the car was safer from the risk of transmission, than in the middle of the crowd.

"I think this is something that needs to be reconsidered and wiser in implementing this. Because there was no one in the car alone, who would we infect and who would we infect? " he protested.
