The Deputy-minister for Justice and Human Rights, Denny Indrayana says Bali, as a world tourism destination, is ripe for violation of money laundering, terrorism and narcotics laws.

The Bali Post quoted Indrayana, saying, “It is therefore very appropriate that the Witness and Victims Protection Agency (LPSK) is cooperating with traditional elements of Balinese society.”

Indrayana’s comments were offered as the keynote speaker at a ceremony celebrating the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between LPSK and traditional organization in Bali on Thursday, October 11, 2012.

The deputy minister described these areas of criminality are generally well-organized and difficult to control with conventional law enforcement tactics. He went on to explain that different means and standards are needed in the investigative and evidence gathering phase during which wiretaps, decoys and surveillance are needed.

He went on to say the dangers of money laundering in Bali is linked to the strong desire of foreigners to invest in Bali. Meanwhile, the threat of terrorism is linked to the popularity of Bali as an international tourism destination. Finally, Bali’s exposure to narcotics rests with the island’s role as both a transit point and market for illicit drugs, with transactions taking place even in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison.

Because of this, Indrayana said the LPSK could become a pillar in the fight against these forms of organized crime. Adding, organized crime can be uncovered when perpetrators break faith with their criminal collaborators and that can only take place when protection is provided to whistle-blowers, witnesses and criminal participants.
