A Snug as a Thug in a Rug?

Bali Activist Question Reluctance of Police to Reveal Name and Arrest those Behind Attack on Environmental Activist

(2/3/2013)

The founder of the People of  Bali Forum Against Violence, Edmundus Wahyu Indrawan, is calling on the Bali police to urgently announce the identity and take into custody the individual who brutally attacked Wayan “Gendo” Suardana, the chairman of the Bali chapter of Friends of the Earth (WALHI) on November 5, 2012.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the police have indicated that know both the man who attacked “Gendo,” while visiting a Denpasar lawyer’s office, and those behind the attack.

“Gendo” is actively leading public and protest actions targeted at the Provincial government of Bali and the Island’s Governor seeking to halt the construction of the Benoa to Nusa Dua toll road and a long-term lease of a publicly-owned mangrove forest to a private company. It is unclear if the physical attack on "Gendo" is in any way linked to these protests.

Indrawan told the press on January 21, 2013 that it is extremely strange that the Bali police have failed to reveal the identity of the individuals perpetrating the attack on “Gendo” when, in fact, the individual who brutalized the environmentalist is reportedly well known to police. Edmundus Wahyu Indrawan blamed the lack of a clear statement by the police as an indication that “an important individual” is behind the attack on the WAHLI chairman.

Further proof of the power lurking behind the person who attacked “Gendo” is the refusal or inability of the police to apprehend the suspects  even though the police claim to know all the actors involved.
