Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika has promised to fulfill the legal demands made by Bali Friends of the Earth (WALHI-Bali) in their successful public information suit filed against the province in connection with Taman Hutan Raya Ngurah Rai Mangrove Forest Reserve.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said, “I will not offer resistance, I will not seal (the files) – whatever the decision (of the Court).

The governor and the province of Bali are being sued by WALHI before the State Administrative Court (PTUN) for irregularities in the long-term lease of the mangrove parklands to a private entity for development as a tourism project.

The Council on Public Information for Bali have ordered the governor to hand over eight documents requested by WAHLI in connection with the lease of the Taman Hutan Raya. 

The chief judge of the Council, Gde Santanu, has given the province two weeks to surrender the required documents or show cause why it should not.

has appealed to the courts, demanding the province be transparent in the process that allowed it to grant a tourism promotion permit to PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari to manage and operate the 102-hectare mangrove park.
