(12/13/2013)

Public statements made by a prominent Bali attorney alleging drug and sex parties conducted by illegal Event Organizers in South Bali continue to evoke comments from a wide circle across the island.

Bisnis Bali reports that such activities in Bali are, in the opinion of the chairman of the Bali Chapter of Indonesian Conference and Convention Association (INCCA), I.B. Surakusuma, indications that tourism development in Bali is operating outside accepted standards and out of control.

He said the failure of the government to detect such activities at an early stage have sacrificed efforts to develop culture-based tourism in Bali and threaten the entire tourism industry.

Speaking on Saturday, December 7, 2013, Surakukuma, who is also known as Lolec, cautioned the Island’s tourism leaders not to follow every wish of the marketplace without first thinking of its impact on Bali’s unique culture.

Lolec warned that if those offering sex and drug parties in Bali are not apprehended and opposed, Bali’s tourism might be forfeited as a result.

At the same time, he said it would be a mistake to assume that all tourists coming to Bali are in search of drugs and sexual gratification.

Concluding that those offering such activities must be working with local partners, he called on the police and immigration to cooperate to put such practices to an end.

Lolec contends that those involved in using Bali tourism to traffic sex and narcotics are only interested in short term financial return done at the expense of the Island’s future. Continuing, he said those involved in this illicit business are using sophisticated networks to market their services, including the Internet, which demands a higher level of sophistication on the part of law enforcement officials in order to detect such activities.

The INCCA chairman called on the government and law enforcement agencies to educate the public on the dangers of sex and drug tourism, and the threat such activities pose to coming generations in Bali.
