The Bali Post reports that officers from the Anti-corruption Division (Tipikor) are investigating allegations that funds collected from tourists visiting the Tanah Lot Temple are being misappropriated.
 
A team from the Bali Police headquarter visited the Pura Tanah Lot to investigate findings from State auditors that there was a shortfall in funds deposited by the Tanah Lot operators into the Tabanan Regency’s bank accounts during 2012. The estimated loss to the government is put at Rp. 256 million (US$25,600).
 
The lost funds are blamed on weak supervision by the Regency’s monetary regulators. “From the audit conducted by State Audit Board (BPK) there is a shortfall in funds deposited to the Regency, fostering the suspicion that payments were made outside the revenue sharing agreement between the Regency and the Traditional Village of Beraban,” an unnamed source told the Bali Post.
 
The audit report filed by the BPK for 2012 identified payments amounting to Rp. 256,265,543.48 that were not contemplated in the revenue-sharing agreement between the local village operators of Pura Tanah Lot and the Regency of Tabanan.
 
That same audit calculated Rp. 16.78 billion in total funds collected from sporting centers and recreation areas in Tabanan in 2013, with Rp. 13.9 billion originating from visitor fees collected at the Pura Tanah Lot.
 
The agreement between the Regency and the traditional village of Beraban signed in 2011 provided that 58% of the fees collected at Tanah Lot would be paid to the Regency of Tabanan.
 
Auditors found that Rp. 256 million due to the Regency under that agreement has gone missing.
 
Auditors also found that a payment of Rp. 463.345 million for a religious ceremony authorized by the Regent of Tabanan as the chairman of the Tanah Lot Management Board was not in accordance with the agreement between the Regency and the Village.
