The existence of illegal levies in the Ciletuh Palabuharatu Geopark Area made the Sukabumi Regent speak up, because this would cause discomfort to tourists who were visiting his area.

The modus operandi of extortionists is to disguise themselves by wearing a parking vest that reads the village government, using name tags and printed tickets themselves. "Not to mention extortion, we have released several tourist area destinations for the convenience of tourists coming to the Sukabumi area," he said after attending the Closing Ceremony of the Standardization Training of Kostrad Soldiers Wave XII and the Massacre Tradition at Palangpang Beach, Ciletuh, Ciemas District, Tuesday (15/03/2022 ).

Sukabumi Regent H. Marwan Hamami asked the sub-district heads and village heads to monitor in their respective areas the perpetrators of illegal extortion practices that are currently ongoing. "Give an appeal first, but when you are stubborn then take action, the Civil Service Police Unit must go directly, especially the Illegal Charges Sweeping Task Force (Satgas Saber Pungli) as a unit to eradicate illegal levies," he stressed.

In addition, the Regent of Sukabumi also appealed to traders to make a list of menus with appropriate prices and not to set prices that make visitors heavy and disappointed because the prices are too expensive and excessive.

H. Marwan hopes that tourists visiting Sukabumi Regency will not give up on spending their holidays with their families, so that tourists can invite other colleagues to go on tours to Sukabumi Regency. "We also urge tourists to carry out health protocols while on vacation, and make sure those who will travel to Sukabumi Regency have implemented a booster vaccine or stage 3 vaccination," he concluded..
