The proposed redevelopment of a restaurant on a Bali bombing site has been put on hold.

The families of the Bali bombing victims were left devastated after local Bali authorities approved plans for the former site of the Sari Club, where 202 people were killed in 2002, be turned into a five-storey complex.

Jan Laczynski lost five of his friends who were working as security guards at the club.

He had flown out of Bali only hours before the bombing.

Construction had been scheduled for this week but Mr Laczynski tells Ben Fordham work has been postponed indefinitely.

“I’m just over the moon. I can’t believe it.

“Pretty much the pressure has come from Scott Morrison.

“Literally, within hours all the plans that they had, have all now been stopped.”
