The Bali Post reports that Bali’s governor has now confirmed he will contest his defeat before the State Administrative Court (PTUN) that declared the contract granted to PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari a long-term licenses to manage the 102-hectare People’s Mangrove Preserve (Tahura Ngurah Rai) as null and void.

Lawyer’s representing the province will seek to have the validity of the licenses granted by his office to the private company legitimized on appeal to the administrative court in Surabaya, East Java.
Governor Pastika told the press that “all he can do is try” to preserve the original license granting the right to build tourist accommodation and supporting facilities in the protected mangrove that surrounds much of the island’s southernmost areas.
Contacted separately, the governor’s lawyer, Ketut Ngastawa, confirmed that the case would be appealed before the filing deadline of August 16, 2013. 
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Bali Friends of the Earth (WAHLI-Bali), Wayan Gendo Suardana, confirmed to the press that his organization is prepared to meet any challenge to their thus-far-successful bid to overturn the license granted by the governor. Gendo said he remains confident that, even on appeal, the administrative courts will see that the Governor’s licenses is both illegal and in contradiction with an understanding of good governance.
