(10/23/2010)

Civil unrest continues to plague the traditional village of Lemukih in Buleleng, North Bali on Friday, October 22, 2010. Sporadic violence between local residents and people claiming land title on their traditional lands has occurred since October 5th resulting in the burning of at least16 buildings and the closure of local roads.

According to the Bali Post, the latest outbreak of violence took place on Thursday and Friday (October 21-22nd) when no less than 13 homes were destroyed. The latest violence included physical altercations that sent one man to hospital with severe injuries, where he remains in critical condition in a coma. The injured man is identified as Made Sartawan (20) from the group claiming to hold official title to the land. He is warded at the Kerta Usada Hospital in Singaraja where is being treated for multiple stab wounds, a broken jaw and gun shots to the head caused by a air gun. The man suffered the injuries trying to fend off a crowd of 300 people who burnt his home down at 3 am in the morning.

A Bali police spokesman traces the conflict to 1974 when certificates were issued on traditional lands on the order of the then governor.

Beritabali.com states that on Friday, October 22, 2010, following the attack that resulted in the burning of more homes and the critical injury of Sartawan, more than 500 police personnel were dispatched to Lemukih village to maintain the peace and public order. The police presence in the village includes officers from the Buleleng police precinct, armed mobile brigade officers from Denpasar (Brimob), and Safety Police (Samapta) forces from Karangasem and Jembrana.

The head of operations from the Buleleng police precinct, Ida Bagus Wedanajati, said, "the full deployment of safety officers has been undertaken as an anticipative step to prevent further unrest in Lemukih village by deploying personnel in areas considered most at risk."
