Government Weighs its Options to Address Severe Overcrowding at Bali's Kerobokan Prison.

Severe overcrowding at Bali's Kerobokan Prison will soon cause the Bureau of Prisons to relocate Bali's largest penitentiary.

According to Radar Bali, plans to shift Kerobokan to a new location were confirmed by the Director General of Prisons, Untung Sugiono, at a remission granting ceremony held at the Bali prison on Tuesday, March 23, 2010. Untung told the press that short term solutions to overcrowding being considered are relocating some of the sub-classes of prisoners held at Kerobokan to other areas. Such a move, however, would require extensive preliminary planning.

The Kerobokan prison was built to house 350 prisoners but currently accommodates 717 people comprised of 439 convicts and 278 being held for trial. Within the prison's community there are separate divisions for men, women, state prisoners and narcotic internees.

Untung revealed that some of the current inhabitants of the Kerobokan facility may eventually be split between two prisons located Mengwi and Bangli. Preliminary suggestions are for the female prisoners to be moved to Mengwi, while narcotic violators would be housed in a Bangli facility.

A private business party has approached the government proposing a build and swap deal, but a special team from the prisons bureau is reviewing costs and options to alleviate the severe overcrowding at Kerobokan.

The prisons bureau operates five penitentiaries and four detention centers in Bali.
