Pesanggaran Police Chief, Iptu Lita Kurniawan confirmed that one liquor store had opened. He asked his men to patrol and come to the liquor store. "We give a warning, we explain what the conditions are like. Alhamdulillah, the manager understands and finally wants to close," he said.

Although it finally closed, According to him, the liquor store may reopen until an integrated team arrives and takes action. "The update is still the same, waiting for the unified team,” he said while mentioning that communication had been carried out with the integrated team.

Meanwhile, Acting Head of the One-Stop Integrated Licensing Capital Naming Service (DPMPTSP) Banyuwangi Regency, Supartana admitted that he could not confirm whether the two liquor stores had permits or not. "We have to investigate first, whether there is permission or not,” he said while referring to the integrated team leader from Banyuwangi Satpol PP.

If the store has a license, he still said, Supartana suspects that most likely the existing permits are in the form of building permits. And that cannot be used as a benchmark to determine whether or not alcohol is allowed to be sold. "But it's still not certain, must see first," he explained.

According to Supartana, the operation of an liquor store must involve a recommendation from customs, Banyuwangi Police, and the Office of Cooperatives, Micro business, and Trade Banyuwangi Regency. “Alcoholic stores must be thoroughly checked, it can't just be from us," he concluded.(sas/abi)
