Governor Pastika: Bali Villas Must Hire Security Guards

(1/6/2013) The State News Agency Antara and Bisnis.com report that Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika will require villa operators to recruit security guards (Satpam) in order to avoid a repeat of the violent attack that occurred on an Australian man at the Villa Chloe in Canggu on Friday, January 4, 2013 [See: Deadly Duel in Canggu]

The governor warned during a town-hall meeting at Taman Ayun, Mengwi on Saturday, January 5, 2013, “If there is no Satpam, that means you are inviting someone to commit a crime.”

In that attack, an Australian, Paul Gill, suffered numerous knife wounds after he did battle with intruders at the villa he shared with his family and friends.

Continuing, the Governor, referring to Canggu where the attack took place, said, “I will also speak with the Chief of Police in order that patrols and security can be increased there.”

“These villas must also be registered and the list given to the police so they can regularly patrol. In this way, we will hopefully deter the criminal,” said Pastika, who once served as Bali’s Chief of Police.

The governor explained that any list of villas must also include a complete address and floor plan that can be kept on file by police.

The governor called on the police to quickly arrest the men responsible for the Canggu attack.
