Indonesian Legal Aid Institute (LBH) expressed its appreciation to the government for stopping the Islet G reclamation process involving PT Muara Wisesa, a subsidiary of PT Agung Podomoro Land.

“We appreciate the decision to stop the Islet G project," LBH lawyer Tigor Hutapea said on Monday.

The decision was announced by Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Rizal Ramli after a meeting with the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry, Environment and Forestry Ministry, Transportation Ministry and the Jakarta administration on Thursday.

A joint team had been established in an effort to investigate reports of irregularities in the Jakarta Bay reclamation project. The broader project is currently on hold due to overlapping regulations, as well as reports of environmental damage.

Islet C and D belong to PT Kapuk Naga Indah, a subsidiary of Agung Sedayu, while Islet N is owned by State-owned port operator Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo). (rez/dan)
