Supporting the Rule of Law

(4/2/2011)

Denpost reports that the recent firm commitment by A.A. Gde Agung, the regent of Badung, to close the Best Western Kuta Hotels has received the endorsement and appreciation of members of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung). Moreover, legislators are hoping the regent will cultivate the same behavior in moving against all parties in the regency known to be violating the rules.

The secretary of Commission A of the DPRD-Badung, Made Duama, praised Agung, saying his firm action reflects a leader who is not half-hearted in enforcing local laws.

However, Duama prays that the regents resolve will not now suddenly come to a halt. Duama reminded that there are many other rule violations that must be addressed. Citing an example, he pointed to infringements on the "no build green zone" in Canggu, Kerobokan and Pererenan.

A member of Commission A of the DPRD-Badung, Wayan Sudita, added his appreciation for Agung's desire to enforce the law, calling on the regent to prosecute every violation and every violator.

Said Sudita: "The problem of the Best Western we have watched develop from its very beginning. What's more, we have already asked the regent to be firm. And now the regent has demonstrated his resolve."

The owner of the Best Western Hotel, Kuta had no comment for the press. The hotel on Jalan Kubu Anyar in Kuta has failed to obtain the necessary building and operating licenses, insisting on building the hotel despite being told from the beginning that the hotel does not conform with zoning and spatial rules.

According to observers, the Best Western Hotel, Kuta has broken three laws: the RTRW zoning law of Badung; a decree by the regent on zoning restrictions; a decree by the regent on urban strategies for the Kuta area; and a failure to pay its fair share of the tax burden.

A letter issued by the regent on March 28, 2011, gave the hotel's owner 7 days to cease operations. A failure to close by that time will compel regency enforcement authorities to formally close the hotel.
