Meulaboh – Civil case trial between the Ministry of the Environment contesting PT. Kalista Alam on the case of clearing by burning in Tripa Peat Swamp allegedly done by PT Kalista Alam was held at the District Court of Meulaboh on Wednesday (12/12/12). The agenda of this second court session focused on the identity verification of both involved parties.

The panel of judges chaired by Rahmawati SH had again to postpone this court session, since the lawyers of PT. Kalista Alam failed to submit a written power of attorney for being the legitimate lawyers of the company. The court session was held only for 15 min. starting from 12.10 WIB on Wednesday afternoon.
Rebecca, one of the lawyer or legal advisor of PT. Kalista Alam, said after the court hearing to The Globe Journal that her lawfirm was only assign verbally to legally represent PT. Kalista Alam in this case. “We were notified verbally for being the legal representatives,” she said.
Asked about the reason of their absence during the first court session, she said that they were still doing the preparation, besides of not having the mandate, they are still also studying the lawsuit. “We are ready for the third court session,” said Rebecca assisted by her colleagues Alfian and Firman.
Without approriate identity of PT. Kalista Alam’s lawyers, the civil court session on the case of clearing by burning in Tripa Peat Swamp was again postponed to the coming January 7, 2013.
