Association of Indonesian Micronations had agreed to give three-weeks deadline for Federal Republic of Los Bay Petros to confirm their current situation, unless they want to be stripped from the membership status. The consensus was made in a heated argument, but finished in the end of Tuesday (28/01).
The decision was made based on the unclear status of Los Bay Petros, because they does not appear to the public on the recent eight months, and some reports said that it is very difficult to questioning Los Bay Petrosian authorities on their current situation. Rumors spread throughout the group even said that Los Bay Petros already dissolved.
Special status reserved for Los Bay Petros complicated more the problem. Los Bay Petros is one of the founder of AIM alongside with Indokistan, and because of that, Los Bay Petros receives permanent seat on AIM Security Council and ranked as “Honorary Member”. All members of AIM also acknowledged roles of Los Bay Petros in development of micronationalism inside Indonesian Sector.
Decisions agreed on the meeting are to strip Los Bay Petros membership if they remain inactive and failed to confirm their status until 18 February 2015, and to strip their permanent seat of the Security Council at the same time as the membership status. The resolution also declares that a new articles about inactivity and membership loss is to be compose.
Until this time, the resolution note has just been sent to Los Bay Petrosian authorities, and is expected to be replied by an official announcement.
Comments and reactions are showed by members of AIM, which majority of them said that this is necessary so members will remain consistent and open. One notable comment are announced by Drastharayan leader Tian Abdurrahman, “It is very tragic to expel our founders” he said.
