The regional administration of Badung in Bali is threatening to withdraw the permits for the Hotel Mulia project if it can be demonstrated that the fugitive Djoko S. Tjandra had violated any existing regulations. To that end, officials are reviewing to see if the construction now underway at the project conforms to its building permit (IMB) and the environmental impact study (Amdal).
Beritabali.com reports that the vice-regent of Badung, Ketut Sudikerta, said on October 17, 2011, that a technical team has been appointed to supervise the project and determine if there is any substance to reports of zoning and environmental violations. The team is specifically checking to see if the buildings at the project meets setback rules from seashores and ravines.
“We have ordered our technical team to observe and make field checks so this problem can be finally resolved. If he (Tjandra) is wrong we’ll stop him, to prevent mistakes occurring in the construction. If he has made mistakes that violate permits, we will automatically take firm action,” explained Sudikerta.
Sudikerta assured that public that the regency of Badung will bow to law enforcement if it can be shown that the Hotel Mulia has been breaking the law. However, speaking generally, Sudikerta insists that the Hotel Mulia is generally following all the rules.
