Jakarta administration at risk of losing more land in disputes
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta administration continues to face land disputes, with the city battling a lawsuit over land owned by the forestry agency recently.
The lawsuit, filed by Ali Effendy and several others, claims ownership over 7.4 hectares owned by the Jakarta Forestry Agency in Srengseng, Kembangan, West Jakarta.
The West Jakarta District Court initially ruled in Ali’s favor. The ruling was then reportedly sent to the forestry agency instead of the Jakarta legal bureau, which had been handling the dispute, resulting in the late filing of an appeal by the latter.
“Why did the court send the letter to the forestry agency instead of us?” the bureau’s legal aid division head, Nur Fadjar, said as reported by Tempo on Friday.
The city is facing 22 land dispute cases, according to the bureau’s data.
Jakarta lost 178,987-square-meters of land from 2008 to 2016 in the courts, including 11,682-sq m on Jl. Bintaro Puspita in South Jakarta that once belonged to the environment agency, 4,500-sq m and a building on Jl. Setu, East Jakarta, as well as 2,236-sq m and a building on Jl. Juanda III, Central Jakarta. (gis)
