Drug Delusions

New Kerobokan Prison Warden Vows to Make Bali Prison Drug-Free

(11/3/2013) Farid Junaedi, the newly appointed warden of Bali’s Kerobokan Prison has announced that he is prepared to join forces with the public and religious figures to help eliminate drug usages at Bali’s largest prison.

Farid, who replaces I Gusti Ngurah Wiratna who has retired from the prison service, has vowed to “work to bring the Kerobokan prison in a better direction.” Adding, “What’s clear, fighting narcotics is a top priority.”

As reported by DenPost, in response to accusations laid by the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN) that the Kerobokan Prison is a center for illlicit drug activities, he said that beyond any such allegations from BNN, his policy and commitment would be that no drugs are to be allowed enterance onto the prisons’ grounds.

The appointment of Junaedi comes shortly after photographs appeared in the Bali press purportedly showing a woman prisoner at the jail engage in drug use.
