13 February 2019,Pelabuhan Ratu,Sukabumi Regency, West Java, Indonesia. Local fisherman Yosep on his boat at the crowded fishing port at Pelabuhan Ratu. His brother has been jailed in Australia on charges of people smuggling from the area. Now  local fisherman say 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.
