The embattled Regent of Jembrana, I Gede Winasa, who is entangled in an ongoing case of corruption concerning expenditures for a Compost processing center, failed to answer a police summons from the criminal investigation division of the Bali police on Thursday, October 7, 2010. According to police, Winasa was unable to attend his questioning due to a previous engagement as a speaker at a seminar in Surabaya.

When contacted by the Bali Post a public relations officer at Airlangga University in Surabaya denied there was a seminar being held on October 7th and that Professor Winasa was scheduled to visit the school to give an address.

The Regent has promised to attend a rescheduled meeting with the police on October 19, 2010.

Winasa has been formally named as a suspect by the police in the corruption case causing a loss of Rp. 2.3 billion (US$255,000). Winasa is one of four officials charged with corruption in the construction of a compost factory. Two of those officials have been tried and found guilty by the courts. IGK Muliartha was sentenced to 18 months in prison and fined Rp. 250 million (US$28,000). IGA Permadi was found guilty and sentenced to one year in prison and fined Rp. 100 million (US$11,1000).

Fearing that Winasa may be trying to evade prosecution, Police have also issued a travel embargo on the Regent, preventing his planned participation in an official visit to Japan.
