Following the arrest of Gede Nurjaya, the former chief of tourism (Kadiparda) for Bali [See: Former Bali Tourism Chief Arrested], Putra Ambara - a former colleague at Bali tourism office has also been apprehended and remanded to Bali's Kerobokan prison.

According to the Bali Post, while the arrest of Nurjaya in the corruption case came as a shock to many, the arrest of Ambara was long anticipated.

The legal representatives of Ambara, Agus Saputra and Ketut Suteja Putra, said there were long-standing indications that their client would be taken into custody, especially following the arrest of Nurjaya.

Shortly after Ambara's arrest his legal team filed a petition seeking the release of Ambara, based on an understanding that corruption defendants would not be imprisoned if they are prepared to return the State funds they stole. Agus Saputra also said Ambara needs to be released so he can address his many responsibilities as an employee of the Bali Tourism Authority.

State prosecutors have acknowledged receiving the letter seeking Ambara's release but have decided to continue his incarceration. Prosecutors have expressed their concern that Ambara would destroy important evidence in the case if he is released from prison.

The origin of the case against Nurjaya and Ambara stem from a report of an employee of the Bali Tourism Authority revealing that the cost of promotional stands at an international travel fair in London had been reimbursed twice via both provincial and national promotional budgets.
