However, in fact, there were some violations of this regulation when building the electric network facilities like the one happening in Bukuan Village. The absence of legal protection concerning this regulation has brought about an impact on the public rights, in which they felt harmed by that particular activity.

The State Electricity Company had the rights to build electricity network facilities by using the privately owned lands.
