(4/11/2008)

Tempo Interaktif reports that Bali's police precinct covering the capital of Denpasar are tightening security measures in the wake of the failure of the final judicial appeal by the Bali Bombers and on the run-up to the Island's gubernatorial election scheduled for July 9, 2008.

Outlining the police's concern for any potential threat ahead, the Second-in-Command at the Denpasar Police precinct, Setyo Dwiantoro, said problems "could originate from people not satisfied with the court's decision."

The latest appeal against the death sentence levied on the three Bali bombers collapsed last month when their legal team abandoned the legal process by walking out of the court.

New Rules for Security Guards

Dwiantoro's comments were made on Friday, April 11th at a meeting of approximately 50 entertainment venues in Denpasar who were warned that incidents of unrest may increase as Bali's political temperatures increase before the election for governor on July 9th.

Commenting on recent violent incidents at evening entertainment venues, the police official blamed such altercations as resulting from simple misunderstandings between customers and security guards. To minimize the risk of such future reoccurrences, the police have now stipulated that all security personnel employed by entertainment venues must wear uniforms and must be unarmed, a prohibition covering both firearms and knives.

To strengthen local efforts to combat violence and crime, several night spot operators attending the meeting with the police called for the organization of "neighbor security teams" comprised of members drawn from the existing security personnel employed by area businesses.

Similar programs are already in operation in the Sanur and Nusa Dua areas of Bali.
