A Bali-based lawyer who has worked on many high-profile drug cases in Bali has painted a sordid picture of illicit sex and narcotics on the Island.
In news carried in The Bali Post and DenPost, well-known attorney H.M. Rifan told a discussion group on narcotics held in Bali on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, that an illegal Event Organizer (EO) in Bali prepares narcotics parties in local villas in Nusa Dua replete with a range of sex services.
He said remote villas in Nusa Dua, Uluwatu and Pecatu located on cliffs and ravines are used for the drug and sex parties.
At the same discussion, a representative of the Bali office of the Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN), estimated that drug abusers in Bali number more than 50,000 with perhaps 20,000 of that total involved in dealing drugs.
BNN extrapolates that Bali consumes a minimum of 7 kilograms of illegal drugs each day.
Authorities worry that the combination of illegal drugs and recreational sex will have the additional negative effect of increasing the rates of HIV/AIDS infections in Bali.
Police officers from the Narcotics Division of the Bali Police expressed surprise at Rivan’s report, promising to investigate his allegations further. Wayan Tantra of the Narcotics Division of the Bali Police warned that such investigations would take time as those organizing such activities select places that are difficult for police to detect their criminal activities.
Separately, the chief of the Bali Tourism Agency Kadispar), Ida Bagus Kade Subhisku, said that the alleged drug activities of illegal EO could not be tolerated and would be fully investigated. He said that his office would be coordinating with police, immigration and other agencies to shut down the alleged illegal Event Organizers in Bali organizing sex and drug themed activities.
He told Bisnis Bali that his office did not yet know about the alleged EO organizing drug and sex parties. He said the report was still a rumor and must be thoroughly checked for its accuracy.
