(3/1/2014)

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika is dismayed and disappointed by banners displayed near his office on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

That banner called for the beheading of Governor Pastika in connection with the ongoing controversy over moves to reclaim a portion of Benoa Bay.

The messages seeking the beheading of Bali’s governor were displayed on banner imprinted with the bloodstained fingerprints of those opposing Bali’s governor. The demands for his head, signed in blood, moved the shocked governor to consider the banner to be a credible threat to his safety and report the matter to the police.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika told the media:
“I think this is serious, I am used to all kinds of abuse, but I have never before felt the need to take these measures. (In the past) I have accepted this as part of the risk of holding office; I couldn’t complain; I couldn’t share my heart. I felt this was an acceptable risk.”

Pastika said that police, as evidence pursuant to a criminal complaint, have taken the offending banner into custody. The complaint to the police was made on behalf of the Province by the Provincial Secretary of Bali, I Wayan Sugiada.

Pastika, who once served as the Chief of Police for Bali, said finding who had written the threat on the banner would not prove difficult. “In fact,” he warned, “it will be easy to find them. It can be done in hours, if I desired to do so. But it would not be appropriate if I directly looked for the responsible parties. However, if the police can’t find them, the I will.”

The governor’s office tookstrong  exception with the hand-written banner produced in the name of a specific political party, asking if the sign was produced in the name of that party? Pastika told the press that DNA tests carried out on the blood of the fingerprints on the banner which would lead to the party responsible.

A spokesman for the Bali Police confirmed that they had the governor’s office report in hand and were investigating the matter.
