Bali's Governor Rejects Establishment of Prostitution Centers

(11/10/2007)

Bali's Governor Dewa Made Beratha has firmly rejected a suggestion by his Vice-Governor, IGN Kesuma Kelakan, to set up special localized centers for prostitution in Bali.

In a speech before Bali's Parliament on Thursday, November 8, 2007, covered by DenPost, the Governor said: "As regards the localization of commercial sex workers, I am of the opinion that a policy localizing commercial sex practices carries with it the connotation that the practice of prostitution has been legalized; a move clearly in opposition to Bali's religious teachings, customs and culture. Because of this, I remain firmly opposed to the principle of localizing prostitution practices."

Governor Beratha's statements contrast strongly with moves by members of his administration to control prostitution in Bali by strictly limiting those activities to certain areas of the Island.

Anticipating possible rebuttals to his strong opposition to the localization of commercial sex, Beratha said he is fully aware of the existence of commercial sex in certain areas of Bali, but insisted it remained the duty of his administration to avoid any steps that allow prostitution to gain a larger foothold on the Island.
