(3/15/2013)

The legal team for The Bali Post have confirmed to DenPost that they had received the decision of the High Court in favor of governor Made Mangku Pastika in his legal action against the largest Bali daily.

Nyoman Gede “Ponglik” Sudiantara, a lawyer for the newspaper, said, “Yes, we have received the decision of the High Court which essentially reinforces the decision of the district court.

Saying he did not consider the decision of the Courts as final, Ponglick advised that The Bali Post legal team would appeal the decision. “It's certain that we will appeal, because we consider the judge was in error in his application of the law. Within the next two weeks we will file our written appeal,” he explained.

In this way, Sudiantara explained, he hopes the case between the governor and The Bali Post can be clarified and that the Press Law can be properly applied. Adding, “The is a problem of press, not a civil law matter.”

Sudiantara was adamant in clarifying: “This problem is clearly a problem of the news. This is a press issue. We hope the Supreme Court will apply the Press Law.”

The decision of the Denpasar District Court, supported on appeal to the Denpasar High Court, found that The Bali Post and its reporter from its Klungkung Bureau are now legally required to publicly apologize with repetitive full-page advertisements in a number of leading newspapers in Bali for publishing news regarding the governor the Courts determined by the court to be untrue.

The court verdicts oblige The Bali Post to place front-page-full-page apologies in its publication for six consecutive days. The Court also ordered full-page apologies be placed by The Bali Post in The Bali Tribun, Warta Bali and Nusa Bali for two consecutive days and in a Fajar Bali and Radar Bali for one day.

In finding in the Governor’s favor, chief justice Amser Simandjuntak ruled that an article published in The Bali Post on September 19, 2011 under the headline “Governor: Just Dismantle the Traditional (Pakraman) Villages” was misleading and violated both the journalistic code and the Press Law.
