13 February 2019,Pelabuhan Ratu,Sukabumi Regency, West Java, Indonesia. Forty eight year old fisherman, Darji, helps launch a fishing boat from the beach at Cibangban village in West Java. He has a police conviction for transporting Afghan refugees to boats bound for Australia. He says that people smugglers have not been active in the area for a long time in the wake of the Australian Government's concern that boats will once again start trafficking people to Australia with the new Medical legislation that has been passed.
