A complaint filed by Bali’s Governor against The Bali Post newspaper seeking US$11.1 mullion in damages for misleading reporting and incorrectly implicating the Governor in a call for the dismantling of all traditional villages (Desa Pakraman) in Bali has resulted in an initial ruling against the newspaper by the Press Council.

Nusa Bali reports that the Press Council found in favor of a complaint filed by the Governor alleging The Bali Post violated the journalistic code of ethics in publishing an incorrect report misquoting the Governor calling for the dissolution of all traditional villages.

In a press conference held in Renon on November 16, 2011, the legal team for the Governor shared the decision of the Press Council. The decision was rendered after two mediation sessions held in Bali and Jakarta between the Governor and the newspaper on October 9 and 31, 2011.

The Governor's lawyers issued a joint statements at the press conference stating that the Press Council had determined there were weaknesses in the news published by The Bali Post when it failed to obtain confirmation from the Governor before publishing the incorrect report.

The Press Council also determined that The Bali Post had also failed to publish balanced reports in their coverage of the Governor’s alleged statement and failed to provide the mandatory “right of response" to Pastika.

With the finding from the Press Council in favor of the Governor, it remains unclear if efforts to secure US$11.1 million in damages from The Bali Post will continue. Governor Made Mangku Pastika had earlier said that any damages obtained in his suit against The Bali Post would be donated to traditional villages across Bali.
