The top floor of a four-story building near Taman Mini Indonesia Indah cultural park in East Jakarta was dismantled over alleged building permit (IMB) violations on Monday.

Cipayung Spatial Planning Agency head Magdalena Butet said the building’s IMB was issued for a three-story building.

“The violations also include the height of the building as well as the free space in the back and sides,” said Magdalena, noting that the building’s function had also changed from its intended use as a residential building to a store.

The dismantling was assisted by officers from the Public Order Agency (Satpol PP), resulting in the construction workers that were on site to promptly leave the premises. (jlm)
