Following a surprise inspection of the Carrefour Hypermarket site along Kuta's Sunset Road on January 30, 2006, by local representatives of the Golkar Faction from the Regional House of Representatives (DPRD), questions have been raised regarding the lack of transparency surrounding the international grocers licensing process.
According to a report in the Indonesian-language DenPost, local legislators are concerned over irregularities in the declared use of the four-storey building, with officials applications reportedly stating that the hypermarket operator will only use the top floor of the structure.
Meanwhile, some elements of the local community have complained that the projects developer, PT Nusa Raya Cipta, have failed to incorporate Balinese architectural elements in the exterior building design, as required by law.
The visiting lawmakers also called on Carrefour to be transparent in its hiring practices, ensuring that local Balinese are employed at both the management and worker level.
