Bali is considering moving its overcrowded prison at Kerobokan to the location of the Island's largest landfill in Suwung, near the port of Benoa.

As reported by The Jakarta Post, Governor Made Mangku Pastika has met with the Law and Human Rights Minister Amir Syamsuddin to discuss the relocation of the prison.

Said Pastika: “I met the law and human rights minister recently. He said that Kerobokan Penitentiary was too overcrowded and should be relocated. I hope we can follow up on the plan.”

22-hectares of the current 32-hectare plot used for the disposal of rubbish could be used to build a prison on what is essentially a massive mound of rubbish.

Pastika says better management of how trash is handled could reduce the amount of land needed for waste disposal to only 10-hectare, freeing up the remaining land for the proposed prison facility.

The Governor said a review and study would be carried out to examine the viability of the proposal.

Sunar Agus, the head of Bali’s Correctional Division in charge of prisons, sees the need for a new and larger prison in Bali as acute. 

“The overcapacity problem in Kerobokan Penitentiary has a negative impact on the coaching programs held for inmates. Relocation is urgent,” Agus said.



Agus has not heard of plans to relocate the prison to the Suwung Rubbish Dump but said any prison would need a proper infrastructure and access to clean water.

Bali is currently attempting to complete a special penitentiary in Bangli on a 4.5-hectare plot dedicated to housing narcotic offenders. Agus said: 

“The new penitentiary will have capacity for 500 inmates. It will be very helpful in solving the overcapacity problem in Kerobokan.”

Bali currently has nine prisons with a total rated capacity of 900 inmates but housing, in fact, 1,800 inmates. The main prison at Kerobokan is rated for 300 prisoners but is home to around 1,000 prisoners.
