JAKARTA: The Jakarta administration is upping the pressure on environmental organization Greenpeace Indonesia to force the NGO to immediately vacate its headquarters in Kemang, South Jakarta.

South Jakarta Building Construction Supervision and Regulation Agency (P2B) head Widyo Dwiyono said that officers from the agency would soon move to seal the building.

“If they don’t move out quickly, we will seal their offices soon because they have violated the law against using a private residence as an office building,” Widyo said as quoted by tribunnews.com.

Head of law enforcement at the agency, Agus Supriyono, said the city administration would not stop Greenpeace from finding a new place for its office.

“We are just doing our jobs, and they can take any other location they want as long as it does not violate a law or regulation,” Agus said.
