The State News Agency Antara writes that Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is scheduled to attend the 10th anniversary commemoration ceremonies of the Bali Bombing on October 12, 2012  at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Cultural Park in Jimbaran.

The vice-commander of the Bali police, Brigadier General Ketut Unung Yoga Ana, said on Thursday, September 20, 2012: “The organizing committee and the government of Australia have met with us and confirmed that the GWK ceremony will be attended by between 800-1,000 Australians, including the Australian Prime Minister.”

He confirmed that in addition to Australia’s Prime Minister, a former prime minister, the chief of the Australian Federal Police, 60 senior government officials, 25 senior police officers and representatives from the Australian Embassy in Jakarta are expected to attend.

The Bali police official confirmed that the large list of attendees would receive a level of security reserved for VVIP (very very important persons) coordinated with the presidential protection team (Paspampres).

Yoga Ana estimated that 4,000 people will attend the ceremony commemorating the first Bali bombing, including victims and families of victims from Australia, Indonesia and other nations.

The police will prepare some 1,000 personal at the ceremonies locations and at “Ground Zero” in Kuta where the bombs exploded on October 12, 2002.

In addition to a large contingent of police and military officers to secure the peace on October 12, 2012, Bali police will also deploy metal detectors and other advanced security measures.
