The administration of Denpasar – Bali’s capital city, is taking steps to prevent terrorism and other criminal acts by conducting sweeping raids and inspections, checking the identity of the city’s residents.

Foreign residents of Denpasar are not immune when officials come knocking on the door of local businesses and residences. This was proven when a number of expatriates were netted in recent raids of rented accommodation in the Sanur Kauh sub-district of Denpasar. Those raids were conducted by teams that included officials from the municipality, immigration, police, the armed forces and officials from the South Denpasar sub-district.

The head of the enforcement team, I Ketut Dunia, told Radar Bali that the goal of the sweeps was to improve security in Denpasar. When they encountered foreingers, the members of the team inspected the stay permits, visa, and police books and checked to ensure the activities of the foreigners matched the immigration and work permit status,

The raids also allowed the Denpasar officials the opportunity to turn over foreigners lacking the correct administrative paperwork to immigration officials for final disposition.

Dunia complained that the owners of the residences in Denpasar try to complicate the work of inspectors by impeding enforcement efforts. “I hope the owners of the residences will actively report the presence of foreigners living in their homes,” he said.

He said the most recent survey in Sanur Kauh discovered a South Korean, Jungchun Kuk, living on Jalan Batur Sari, Sanur, South Denpasar, who refused to make all the required reports on his presences in Bali to local officials. Haerun, an immigration official on the survey team, said that Jungchun Kuk holds a temporary stay permit (KITAS), but had failed to make the mandatory reports to Manpower officials and the Police.

Immigration officials continues to investigate the case, saying the Korean could be placed under arrest or deported from Indonesia if he is determined to have violated the law.
