(8/26/2011)

Claiming that compensation for land and buildings promised them by PT Bali Pecatu Graha (BPG) owned by Hutomo Mandala Putra (Tommy Suharto) remains unpaid, eighty-four former residents of Pecatu in South Bali have filed a case before the Denpasar District Court.

BeritaBali.com reports that Suharto, the Son of Indonesia’s late President, was named together with Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika as defendants in the citizens’ suit.

The documents filed with the Court seek Rp. 212 billion (US$24 million) in damages. That amount is comprised of Rp. 54 billion (US$6.1 billion) for lost plants and trees; Rp. 6.2 billion (US$704,000) for lost homes and buildings; and Rp. 151 billion (US$17.2 million) for lost lands. In addition, non-material losses of Rp. 20 billion (US$2.3 million) are also being sought collectively by the plaintiffs.

Behind the suit are a long-standing complaint tied to a 1995 agreement between the traditional landholders at Pecatu, the provincial government of Bali and PT BPG.

The lawyers representing the plaintiffs, Made Arjaya and Umi Martina, said, “in the (1995) agreement, Tommy as the first defendant and the Governor of Bali as the second defendant agreed to trade lands measuring 1,231,400 square meters located in the village of Pecatu, Jimbaran district.”

In the agreement PT BPG was obliged to replace the land taken for their development with productive lands measuring 1,862,000 square meters. The company headed by Suharto was also required to hand over the land to the individuals land titles of ownership measuring 200 square meters to each of the displaced Pecatu residents.

Moreover, Suharto’s company were required under the agreement to build homes on the replacement lands as well as provide gainful employment for former resident at the PT BPG project.

The citizens’ group now argues that more than 15 years after the initial agreement with PT BPG has not been fulfilled by Suharto.

“Actually, the local residents have sent repeated letters, but they have been ignored, as demonstrated by the ongoing physical construction (at the site) such as the golf course,” explained lawyer Umu Martina

The complainants say that any compensation paid by Tommy Soeharto was not in accordance with the 1995 agreement.
