Promises Kept

Blockade of North Bali Power Plant Project Ends

(7/20/2012) The blockade of the Coal-powered Electrical Generating Plant in North Bali at Celukan Bawang has reportedly come to an end, with disgruntled local residents receiving land certificates and compensation demanded from the project’s developer PT General Energy Bali (GEB).

Radar Bali reported an end to the impasse took place on Monday, July 16, 2012, when 28 land certificates were handed to family heads at Brongbong village, North Bali.

Graciously accepting the long-promised certificates, the local residents responded by removing barricades they had erected blocking access to the power plant project.

The head of Brongbong village, Saharudin, expressed his relief at the settlement, although there remain a few local residents still waiting to receive the promise land certificates.
