Bali police have told DenPost that a special team from their criminal division led by Harry Haryadi is poised to make arrest in the brutal attack on Bali environmentalist Wayan “Gendo” Suardana.

Gendo heads the Bali Chapter of the Friends of the Earth (WALHI) who has taken a lead role in protests calling for a halt in the Bali toll way project and the rejection of a recent contract given by governor Pastika allowing a provide firm to assume management of South Bali’s mangrove forest.

Gendo was attacked an beaten by thugs while visiting a lawyer’s office in downtown Denpasar on November 5, 2012.

Police say they have the names and identities of Gendo’s assailants who are currently on the run, changing addresses to seemingly avoid capture by the police.

Haryadi told the press: “Relax. All that remains is for us to make an arrest. How far can they run and where can they hide?”

While police would not elaborate, speculation is that the men sought in the attack have left the Island.

Meanwhile, Gendo has confirmed that a photograph shown him by the police is the man who attacked him.

Environmental circles are eager that the suspect is arrested in order that more information might be forthcoming on those behind the scene engineering the attack on Gendo.
