Who’s That Knocking on Your Door?

(9/26/2013)

On Monday, September 23, 2013, a combined team from the Denpasar Political Solidarity Bureau (Kesbangpol), immigration, manpower, the provincial tourism office, local community officials and police conducted raids at several locations in Bali’s capital of Denpasar. The purpose of the raids was to capture foreigners thought to be working illegally at local businesses.

Part of what is promised to be an ongoing effort, the first area visited by the team covered Jalan Waribang to East Denpasar.

“The first team visited a shop selling Ralph Lauren shirts on Jalan Waribang, It appears that the shop is managed by a Korean, Chung Chan Ho. As for Mr. Cho he holds naturalization certificates issued by the courts when he married his wife who is also from Korea,” explained the leader of the raids, I Wayan Sudana from Kesbangpol-Denpasar.

Sudana told Radar Bali that while Chung was able to present proof of Indonesian citizenship, he was unable to present documentation for his wife. Chung and his wife have been asked to prepare photocopies of all their documentation to hand to authorities when they pay a return visit to his shop in a few day's time.

The team also discovered that the shop operated by the Chung’s held no valid business operating license, a matter that has been turned over to the licensing department of the municipality.

Following the visit to the Chung’s place of business, the team continued on to visit a home stay and villa located on Jalan Raya Padang Galak. At the home stay the team found all was in order, but the villa, believed to be owned by a German, was unable show the required operating licenses, permits and the personal documents of the villa occupant.

Sudana explained that the purpose of the raid was not to prevent foreigners from living in Denpasar, but to identify those doing so without the required legal documentation. He said such documentation became even more important when foreigners are operating businesses in Denpasar.

In closing, Sudana added: “The investigative raids are part of our routine agenda. Thus, it is not only local residents, but also foreigners (that we check). This is because foreigners are not only taking up residency in Bali, but also opening businesses."
