Public peace has been restored in the Balinese regency of Bangli in the days following violent clashes between two villages that resulted in one death, a number of injuries and the initial arrest of 20 people. [Bangli Paralyzed by Civil Unrest]
By Thursday, July 21, 2011, two days after the clash - schools, businesses and government offices were resuming operations.
A mediation team formed by the regent of Bangli, Made Gianyar, is now working to arrive at a permanent peace between the two communities and to oversee joint religious rituals at the scene of the unrest that will restore cosmic balance between Man, God and Nature – the central foundations of the Balinese credo of Tri Hita Karana.
During the transition period, a higher police presence will remain at key location in Bangli to ensure the peace is maintained.
Meanwhile, police and prosecutors are reported to be preparing indictments against several of those arrested in the conflict in connection with the death of Jero Slamet (55), who died after being struck with a blunt object.
Tourism activities at the popular tourist site of Kintamani and Lake Batur are said to be operating normally.
