Turtle Island Developers Refute Accusations of Barring Citizens Entry
SERANGAN ISLAND ~ PT BTID (Bali Turtle Island Development) spokesmen said that they did not prohibit Serangan citizens from passing through Serangan Island.
Dirty and Beny, two of BTIDâ€™s prominent figures, said that they coordinated the development project with officials in Serangan.
â€œThe issue of our prohibiting citizens was blow out of proportion by a certain person,â€ Dirty and Beny said, referring to a meeting sponsored by the Society Management Organization of Serangan last week in which citizens claimed that BTID was barring them from entry throughout the island.
BTID provided Serangan citizens with economic benefits, the spokesmen said, adding that the connecting bridge had already been built to accommodate citizens who would no longer need to rent jukungs (small boats) in order to travel to Bali.
The two men added that they hoped the entire BTID project would be realized as soon as possible in order to create a field of opportunities for local citizens.
