Indonesia says it has barred the executive director of the environmental group Greenpeace from entering the country because of reports written by the organization about the country.
John Sauven was turned back immediately upon arrival at Jakarta's airport on Thursday.
He was supposed to meet with government officials and businessmen before visiting rainforests threatened by ever-expanding plantations.
A spokesman for the Justice and Human Rights Ministry says Sauven was informed through Indonesia's Embassy in London he would not be allowed to enter even though he'd been granted a visa.
The spokesman said Friday the decision was based on reports by Greenpeace that had created "difficulties" for the Indonesian government.
