Plans announced by the government to commence the construction of a prison to house narcotics offenders in Bangli are now stuck, with only an empty field and walls for the prison occupying the designated site in Banjar Buungan in Desa Tiga.

According to Denpost, the project scheduled to begin construction in 2010, is unexplainably in “stuck” with local villagers now planting elephant grass in the vacant lot to provide feed for grazing cattle.

No construction crews or construction equipment is to be found at the site of the new prison.

Local citizens report that a spurt of construction in 2010 erected walls and a single structure before contractors abandoned the site. The walls erected stand some 10 meters high with barbed wire crowning the expanse.

Villagers say no construction has taken place at the location for the new prison for the past six months.

The prison site occupies a piece of land measuring 4.5 hectares and is a project under the supervision of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights Bali office.

Earlier, the head of the prisons division of the Bali office for the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Sunar Agus, said that plans for the construction of a narcotics penitentiary in Bangli remained uncertain. The money allocated in the state budget of 2013 for the project had received a special notation indicating the funds were not yet readily available.

The new prison in Bangli is urgently needed to address overcrowding issues at the Kerobokan Prison in South Bali where a prison built to house 300 inmates is now home to more than 900 inmates. More than half of those in the Kerobokan prison are serving sentences in connection with narcotics violations and would therefore be eligable for relocation to the new narcotics prison when it opens.
