(8/19/2013)

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika has relented and finally revoked his decree granting permission to developers to reclaim large areas of Benoa Bay for an entertainment, sports and residential complex.

 
As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Governor Pastika announced on Saturday, August 17, 2013: “Effective Friday, August 16th, Decree number 2138/02-C/HK/2012 dated December 26, 2012, I have revoked based on a number of considerations.”
 
The Governor explained that the revocation of his decree granting permission to reclaim Benoa Bay is based on a letter of recommendation from the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) issued one week before and the enunciated aspirations of the public.
 
Pastika continued: “I have yet to review the recommendations of the DPRD-Bali, but essentially it urges that the decree granting permission to use and conserve Benoa Bay be quickly revoked. Therefore, I state that effective yesterday (August 16th) the decree has been revoked.”
 
The Governor said that his revocation of his decree on Benoa Bay also serves as a response to protests from academics, NGOs, environmental groups, leaders of traditional society and Bali religious leaders.
 
The Bali Post reports that the CEO of PT Tirta Wahana Bali International (PT TWBI), Hendi Lukman, refused to comment on the revocation of the recommendation given by the governor to his company to reclaim Benoa Bay.
