In the wake of the violent rioting at Bali’s Kerobokan Prison that saw prisoners take complete control of the penitentiary, the Chief of Police for the province of Bali and two lead officials at the prison have been removed from their positions.

Change of Command in the Bali Police reports that in announcing the change of command at the Bali police, the National Chief of Police General Timur Pradopo insists the reassignment of Brig. General Totoy Herawan Indra has no connection with ongoing unrest at Bali’s main prison.

“Oh, there’s no connection. All this is connected to a normal tour of duty and tour of area. It’s normal,” explained General Timur after Friday prayers at Police Headquarters in Jakarta on February 24, 2012.

The transfer of Totoy was revealed in a “secret telegram” sent on February 23, 2012 that has fallen into the hands of the press. The former Bali Police Chief’s new position is on the Expert Management Staff at Police Headquarters.

Totoy’s tour of duty in Bali was a very short one, lasting only 7 months from his installation as Bali's Police Chief on July 13, 2011.

Bali’s new police chief is Inspector General Budi Gunawan whose last assignment was as the Head of the Professional and Security Division at National Police Headquarters.

Prison Officials Removed

In a rushed ceremony held in the morning hours of February 24, 2012, at an annex just a few meters beyond the walls of the unsettled Kerobokan Prison, the head of the Prison and the Head of Security at the Penitentiary were removed from their posts.

Bowo Nariwono who was the man in charge at the prison has been replaced by Gusti Ngurah Wiratna who moves to Kerobokan from the top post at the Karangasem Prison in east Bali.

The head of the security and guards at the prison Anang Khuzani has also been replaced by Wayan Agus Miriadi, who was formerly in charge of guardsand security at the children’s prison in Karangasem.

No new assignments within the National Prison Service have been announced for either Nariwono or Khuzani.
