The Jakarta State Administrative Court (PTUN) has ruled in favor of developer PT Agung Dinamika Perkasa, which had filed a lawsuit against Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan’s 2018 decision to revoke a permit for reclaimed islet F in Jakarta Bay.

The company, one of the developers of islet F, challenged Jakarta Gubernatorial Decree No. 1409/2018 stipulating the revocation of permits for 13 reclaimed islets. 

“[The court] hereby revokes Decree No. 1409/2018 issued by the Jakarta governor dated Sept. 6, 2018,” the verdict said as quoted on the Jakarta PTUN website, sipp.ptun-jakarta.go.id.

In the regulation, Anies revoked the permits for the islets, including islet F developed by PT Jakarta Propertindo and Agung Dinamika Perkasa.

Anies’ predecessor, Basuki Tjahaja “Ahok” Purnama, granted the reclamation permit to Jakarta Propertindo in a gubernatorial decree issued on Oct. 22, 2015. 

The panel of judges further instructed Anies to revoke the 2018 decree.

The ruling was read by presiding judge Andi Muhammad Ali Rahman on Jan. 21, along with judges Umar Dani and Enrico Simanjuntak. The court began hearing the case on Sept. 3, 2019.

Anies revoked the permits for the 13 islets in September 2018 following an investigation by the Jakarta North Coast Reclamation Management Coordinating Body.

The 13 islets whose permits were revoked were islets A, B, E, I, J, K, M, O, P, Q, H, F and M.

Besides Agung Dinamika Perkasa, three other islet developers have also filed similar lawsuits. One lawsuit filed by islet M developer PT Manggala Krida Yudha was rejected by the court. 

Meanwhile, the court has ruled in favor of the lawsuits filed by developers PT Taman Harapan Indah, which developed islet H, and PT Jaladri Kartika Pakci, which developed islet I. (ami)
