In March 2015, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) called the Jakarta Monitoring Network (JMN) filed a lawsuit rejecting the development of Pluit City; an island reclamation project that is a part of the Giant Sea Wall megaproject at the northern coast of the capital city Jakarta. At the heart of JMN’s challenge was the Jakarta Governor Decree (Kepgub) No. 2238/2014 that acted as a reclamation permit for Island G to PT Muara Wisesa Samudra (MWS), a subsidiary of Agung Podomoro Land. JMN argued that the Kepgub in question was a direct violation to Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 122/2012. On May 12, 2015, however, JMN revoked the lawsuit after the Jakarta Provincial Government (Pemprov Jakarta) questioned JMN’s legal standing as an NGO. But the legal challenge didn’t end there.To subscribe please click here
