Bali Immigration Officials Round Up Indian Reporters Covering Extradition of Indian Fugitive

The State News Agency Antara reports that Denpasar, Bali immigration officials temporarily detained more than 10 Indian journalists working in Bali covering the extradition process of famed Indian criminal fugitive Ranjedra Sadashiv Nikalje alias Chhota Rajan.

Immigration officials confronted the group of Indian journalists on Monday November 2, 2105, when they were visiting Police headquarters in Bali to gather information on the Indian criminal arrested at Bali’s airport.

The reporters were interviewed one-by-one by immigration officials who demanded to see passports, Indonesian visas and press credentials.

A Denpasar immigration official, Setyo Budiwardono, said the action was necessary to keep track of visiting journalists who had been operating in Bali for the past week at the time when they were interviewed at Police headquarters. “They’ve been in Bali for a week covering the Indian national wanted for murder, but they failed to report to an immigration official,” said Budiwardono.

Setyo Budiwardono said that if the Indian reporters are unable to present their passports and press credentials they would be required to leave Bali.

An Immortal Island Hero
7th Raja of Badung Elevated to National Hero Status for Ultimate Sacrifice in 1906 Puputan Fight to the Death

NusaBali reports that following a wait of more than seven years, the 7th Raja of Badung (1902-1906) I Gusti Ngurah Made Agung, has finally been elevated to the status of “National Hero.”

I Gusti Ngurah Made Agung the 7th died at age 30 in the “fight to the death” (puputan) with Dutch colonial forces that took place in Central Denpasar on September 20, 1906.

The late King’s elevation to the National Pantheon of Heroes was made official via a decree issued by President Joko Widodo on November 4, 2015. The same decree also bestowed “National Hero” status on four other Indonesians:  Bernard Wilhelm Lapian from North Sulawesi; Mas Isman of East Java; Police General Dr H Moehammad Jasin of East Java; and Ki Bagus Hadikusumo of Yogyakarta.

The awards ceremony, in which honors were given posthumously to surviving family members of the recipients, took place at the National Palace (Istana Negara) in Jakarta on Thursday. November 5, 2015. Accepting on behalf of the late King was Anak Agung Ngurah Oka Ratmadi (Cok Rat), a member of the PDIP Party who hails from the Satria Palace in Denpasar and serves as a member of the Bali Regional Representative Council (DPD-Bali).

The head of the public relations department for the Municipality of Denpasar, Ida Bagus Rafoela, expressed his gratitude and admiration on the granting of hero status to I Gusti Ngurah Made Agung, saying the award would serve to inspire the younger generation to help develop Bali and preserve the Island’s culture. Rahoela also confirmed that the Denpasar administration had already immortalized the name of I Gusti Ngurah Made Agung in 2012 via the renaming the Puputan Field in downtown Denpasar in the late King’s honor. A monument located at the intersection of Jalan Veteran and Jalan Pattimura in Denpsaar is also named in his honor.

At the time of his fight to the death against an advancing Dutch colonial military force on September 20, 1906 the Raja was only 30 years of age and was the unmarried Raja of Denpasar, a post he held for four years, at the time of his death.

Notorious Gangster and Serial Killer Finally Extradited from Bali Back to India

After delays occasioned by the closure of Bali’s airport due to volcanic dust from Mt. Rinjani, the internationally famous Indian fugitive Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje alias Chohhota Rajan alias Mohan Kumar, 56, was finally deported on Thursday evening, November 11, 2015 at 8:20 pm.

On an Interpol “red” list, the Indian is wanted in India in connection with an estimated 20 murders and bombing in India. Nikalje has been on the run for 20 years.

NusaBali reports that security was extremely tight surrounding the final extradition of a man known to be an Indian gang member and who had been held on the Island since Sunday, October 25, 2015, after he was detained upon arrival at Bali’s airport.

After final processing at Police headquarters, the fugitive was transported in an armored troop transport with armed escort to Bali’s airport. Upon arrival at the Airport, the Indian was handed over to waiting officers from the Indian National Police who departed Bali on a private aircraft operated by the Indian Government.

The Indian aircraft had been parked at the Bali airport for four days awaiting adverse atmospheric conditions caused by exploding Mount Rinjani to improve and once again allow normal flight operations.

Landings are a Problem
Batik Air Runs Off the Runway While Landing at Yogyakarta’s Airport

A Batik Air flight from Jakarta to Yogyakarta skidded off the end of the runway at Adisucipto International Airport at 3:05 pm on Friday afternoon, November 6, 2015.

As reported by The Jakarta Post and The Jakarta Globe, Batik Air - the full-fare subsidiary of discount carrier Lion Air, lost control of the Boeing 737 aircraft when brakes failed while landing in heavy rain. In order to avoid careening into a nearby bridge, the Pilot of the aircraft veered into the grassy edge at the end of the runway where the front landing gear of the airplane collapsed.

The incident caused officials to close the airport until the plane could be removed.

No injuries resulted from the landing mishap.

The plane was carrying 160 passengers and 7 crew when the incident occurred.

The accident is the first mishap reported by Batik Air but the latest in a long list of bad landings that have caused Lion Air’s safety record to be called into question:
  • In April 2013 a Lion Air Boeing 737 undershot the runway at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Aiport crashing into the sea. The plane was completely destroyed and a number of passengers sustained serious injuries in that landing at sea.
  • In August 2013 a Lion Air Boeing 737 struck a cow on the runway at Manado’s Jalaluddin airport in North Sulawesi. 
  • In February 2014 a Lion Air Boeing 737 bounced repeatedly on land at Surabaya’s Juanda Airport after a tail strike. The aircraft suffered severe damage and a number of passengers were injured.

Ewes that Phew
Sheep Passing Gas Force Singapore Airlines to Make Emergency Stop in Bali

Bali was recently the location where 2,198 little lambs lost their way on a journey from Sydney, Australia to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The flock of sheep were the “passengers” being carried on a SQ-7107 – a Singapore Airline Cargo Boeing 747 that requested permission to make an emergency landing at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on October 26, 2015.

Shortly after departing Australia, emergency smoke alarms on board the plane indicated a possible fire in the cargo hold. And, since sheep don’t smoke and, in any case, smoking is no longer allowed on airlines anywhere, the crew assumed a dire situation on board and sought permission to make an emergency landing in Bali.

As reported by Aviation Herald, a thorough inspection of the plane’s cargo hold found no fire or smoke source that might have triggered the alarm. The sheep, when asked to “fess up” if any of their number had been sneaking a smoke all responded with blank stares and one-syllable protestations of “baa.”

Safety officers eventually concluded that the alarms sounded due to the methane gas produced by sheep flatulence (editor: farts) and the sheep’s decomposing  manure.

After a delay of three hours the plane full sheep continued their journey for their next destination: the abattoirs of Malaysia.

Bali to Install Solar Power Panels on Provincial Government Offices in 2016

The State News Agency Antara reports that beginning in 2016 provincial government offices in Bali will begin installing solar power panels as part of plans to make Bali clean, green and a center of excellence.

“Clean energy will come from gas, solar energy, ocean currents and plants that can be used to create bio-fuels for electricity,” explained Pastika.

The Governor said solar power panels would be installed on provincial offices. He has also asked that panels be placed on government buildings in he Regencies of Buleleng and Klunkung.

The Ministry of Energy has also expressed an interest in installing solar panels at the Besakih Temple in Karangasem and the Ulundanu Batur Temple in Bangli.

The resort is also preparing for the imminent launch of a new oceanfront yoga venue where guests can join a fun class of AntiGravity® ‘flying’ yoga in a traditional bale perched on the edge of the sparkling Indian Ocean.

“The resort’s location on Jimbaran’s golden shores is perfect for guests seeking a therapeutic beach holiday, whether they want to get active with our fitness classes, or prefer a more spiritual and nurturing approach from the international masseuses, local healers and wellness consultants,” said Uday Rao. “Whatever a guest chooses, we just want them to leave here feeling better than when they arrived. That is our goal – our New Year resolution.”

Making Earth More Like a Garden of Eden
Bali Safari & Marine Park Sharing a Love for Flora and Fauna with the Coming Generation

Bali Safari & Marine Park remains tireless in its efforts to persuade the public to become more environmentally aware. In this vein, during the celebration of National Flora and Fauna Day, the Bali Safari & Marine Park Team invited 55 children for the Widya Asih and Permata Bali orphanages in Karangasem, East Bali to spend this special day dedicated to nature at the 40-hectare Park. During their visit, the kids were treated to a number of unique experiences designed to familiarize them with nature and become acquainted with just a few of the marvelous animals with which we share this world.

Among the activities prepared for the children’s visit included a tour of the Park on the motorized Safari Journey that brought them through separate areas reserved for the animals of Africa, Asia and Indonesia. The kids also had the opportunity to interact with the majestic herd of elephants that make their home at Taman Safari and assist in the feeding and grooming of the Sumatran Jumbo’s via the “Junior Mahout Program.” Later, at the “Elephant Show” the eager visitors learned about the threat to Indonesia’s dwindling elephant population posed by the encroachments of civilization.

But, without doubt the day’s highlight was premium seating at the hour-long Bali Agung Performance depicting the life of Raja Jayapangus that involved hundreds of performers – both human and animal, presented on Southeast Asia’s largest stage.

The Education Team of the Park rounded out the day for their young visitors by setting a challenge to hunt for hidden seedlings for trees that they later planted to enrich the plant diversity of Bali Safari. Working in five separate groups and questioned after the planting, the children all managed to derive a common lesson from the experience: that everyone can make a positive impact on the natural environment through an act as simple as planting a tree.

William Santoso, General manager of the Bali Safari & Marine Park commenting on the visit, said: “We feel an obligation to celebrate National Flora and Fauna Day as a means of renewing our commitment to save and preserves Indonesia’s wildlife and rich wild gardens. This day also allow us the chance to invite children from local orphanages so they can be embraced by our community of workers and animals in the hope that they will grow up to become adults that share a genuine concern for the natural environment.”

Since 1992, National Flora and Fauna Day (Hari Cinta Puspa dan Satwa Nasional) is celebrated every November 5th. According to the Chairman of National Flora and Fauna Day (HCPSN), Tony Sumampau, the activities held across the nation on this date strive to change public awareness and evoke the public’s sense of care and affection for the rich biodiversity found in Indonesian.

Will Further Rumbles Cause Tourism to Tumble?
While Winds Have Diverted Volcanic Ash Away from Bali, Lombok’s Mount Rinjani Continues to Pose a Threat to Bali Tourism

Volcanic activity on Mount Barujari – located within Lombok’s Mount Rinjani – has continued largely without pause since Wednesday, November 4, 2015.

National volcanic experts warn that the potential for future eruptions remains high, despite a considerable reduction in the amount of volcanic ash ejected into the atmosphere in recent days.

As reported by Kompas.com, the head of the Data, Information and Public Relations Section of the National Disaster Mitigation Agency, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, the official status of Mount Rinjani remains “Vigilant II” (Waspada II) with the threat of further explosions still high.

Sutopo warned on Saturday, November 7, 2015,that a direct threat remains of pyroclastic flows and lava still standing in the caldera of Mount Rinjani. A government observation post was still recording volcanic ash ejections to a height of 1,000 – 1.500 meters on November 7th. However, the volume of ash had reduced and was now being carried by the winds in a southerly and southwesterly direction.

Officials say the level of seismic activity and tremor measured on the mountain remain high.

Changing wind directions allowed flights operating into Bali’s and Banyuwangi’s airport to resume on Friday, November 6, 2016, while Lombok’s airport remained closed until at least Sunday, November 8, 2015.


Blame it on the Mountain
Visitors to Tanah Lot Complex Down 27% Due to Mount Rinjani Eruptions

The continuing eruption of Mount Barujari at Mount Rinjani in Lombok has caused visitors to Bali’s popular Tanah Lot tourist attraction to decline 27%.

Beritabali.com quoted the assistant manager of the Tanah Lot Complex, I Wayan Sudiana, saying on Thursday, November 5, 2015, that prior to the explosion of the Lombok volcano Tanah Lot was recording 7,000-8,000 domestic and international visitors each day. Adding, “Since the explosion of Mount Barujari in Lombok we have only had 5,000 visitors a day.”

In 2014, Tanah Lot recorded 3,125,205 total visitors; a total number officials feel certain will be surpassed by the end of 2015.


A Failure to Scale
East Java Junior High Student Dies on Bali Study Tour at East Denpasar Hotel

A 14-year-old junior high school student from Madiun in East Java an on a group study tour to Bali has died from head injuries after falling from the second floor of the Hotel Nuansa Indah on Jalan Nangka Selatan in East Denpasar on Thursday, November 5, 2015.

The boy is suspected to have fallen from an outside ledge after trying to scale the outside of the building in an effort  to obtain entrance to the room of a fellow student.

Dead is Ferian Nur Syafe’i who was found laying in a pool of blood in the yard of the hotel at around 8:00 pm. The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died on route.

Ferian was a member of a group of 109 students accompanied by 9 teachers from Junior High School No. 14 in Madiun, The group had checked into the hotel on Wednesday, November 4, 2015, booking a total of 35 rooms in the hotel. The group was scheduled to check out on the morning of Friday November 6, 2015

Syafe’I was staying in room 211 of the hotel and, for reasons that remain unclear, was trying to climb along the outside of the hotel to gain entry to room 213.

Shortly before he fell, the boy was seen hanging onto an outside air-conditioning unit, calling for help.


Dust Ourselves Off & Start All Over Again
Flight Disruptions Caused by Lombok Volcano Prove Costly to Bali

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika says the volcanic eruption of Mount Barujari in Lombok has caused significant financial losses to Bali tourism and the functions of local government.

Speaking at the Free Speech Forum in Renon on Sunday, November 8, 2015, and quoted by Beritasatu.com, Pastika said: “The economy has been disturbed. This is a natural disaster. We can’t block the atmosphere and stop the volcanic dust from coming to Bali. That just can’t be done.”

Bali’s Governor was unable to put an exact figure on the  amount of economic losses caused by the volcano on Lombok, but the volcano caused the cancellation of a large number of flights, resulted in cancelled holiday bookings and the cancellation of at least one major international conference in Bali.

Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport was closed from 7:30 pm Tuesday evening November 3rd until Thursday, November 5th at 2:30 pm. During that period, more than 692 domestic and international flights were cancelled and thousands left stranded at Bali’s airport or at intermediate stops on route to Bali.

By Thursday the volume of volcanic ash had subsided somewhat and wind directions became favorable, moving the plumes of hazardous dust to areas outside the airports take-off and landing pattern.


Maintaining the Status Quo
Bali Immigration Office Revokes Controversial Order Limiting Uses of Visa-Free and Visa-On-Arrival

In a sudden about-face, Yosep H.A. Renung Widodo, the head of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Immigration Office, has withdrawn a set of instructions mandating strict treatment of foreign tourists who use visa-free or visa-on-arrival facilities.

The original instruction (W20.FNG.Um.01.01-47774) issued on October 20, 2015 threatened foreign travelers who used visa-on-arrivals or visa-free facilities more than twice in any 12-month period with blacklisting preventing further visits to Indonesia.

The move was defended by Widodo as a response to numerous complaints received from tourism stakeholder regarding the large number of foreigners working illegally in Bali.

Strong criticism aimed at Widodo’s instructions from lead elements of Bali’s tourism industry caused the Ngurah Rai immigration chief to quickly issue a second order on October 30, 2015 (W20.FNG.UM.01.4962) revoking his earlier instructions.

At least for now, visitors to Bali using visa-free or visa-on-arrival can do so as many time as they want within a 12-month period.

Bali Records a Strong September of Tourist Arrivals
Bali by the Numbers: Bali Arrivals Bounce Back in a Post-Volcanic September 2015

The foreign tourist arrival totals for September 2015 showed a quick and virtually complete turnaround from one month earlier - August, when arrivals were negatively impacted by airport closures due to volcanic dust alerts.

September 2015 foreign arrivals to Bali totaled 391,172 - a 10.62% increase over September 2014 when 354.762 foreign tourists came to Bali. This improving trend was a complete turnaround from August 2015 when arrivals declined 10.5% as compared to August 2014.

Seen on a cumulative basis for January –September 2015, foreign arrivals to Bali hit 2,992,925 - an increase of 7.63% over the same nine-months in 2014.

On the assumption that this rate of growth is maintained through the end of 2015, Bali will end the year with slightly more than 4 million foreign visitors.

Arrivals from Key Markets

Australia – After declining month-on-month by 29.5% in August, Australian visitors revived totaling 110.406 in September – an increase of 3.4% over the same month in 2014.

Plain Talk
Editorial: Why Indonesia Should Extend Visa-Free Status to Australia

In October 2015 when Indonesia expanded to 90 the number of countries eligible for visa-free status Australia was highly noticeable by its absence from that list.

Why was Australia left off the list? While speculation is rife on that subject, it’s clear that that some sort of petty high dudgeon – a feeling of offense and deep resentment, is in play in Jakarta when it comes to its near neighbors of Australia.

Petty? Short of the revelation of the basis for the yet-unexplained basic enmity that Indonesia feels for visiting Australians, the logical reasons for denying Australians greater ease-of-access to Indonesia defies any reasonable explanation.

In fact, the only explanation we’ve encountered for the cold shoulder given to Australian visitors at immigration counters was an affront to a former Indonesian Minister of Justice who was rudely left cooling his heals waiting to meet an Australian official in Canberra in the early 2000s. It’s hard to imagine, however, that such a piece of ancient and insignificant history still has any bearing on current bilateral relations between Canberra and Jakarta.

But what is it exactly that prevents Indonesia from treating Australian tourists with the same equanamity and educated self-interest it employs when dealing with other nations?

Reciprocity ?

The standard argument put forward for the current visa impasse is that Indonesia is not extending a visa-free facility to Australians because Australia does not reciprocally provide a visa-free privilege to Indonesians traveling to Australia.

But does this view stand up to closer examination? With the exception of its ASEAN neighbors and a small handful of other nations, the overwhelming majority of the 90 countries accorded visa-free entry by Indonesia do not reciprocate this courtesy to Indonesian passport holders. While reciprocity of visa facilities is a valid policy objective for Indonesia, the question must be asked: Why are the Australian’s being singled out for retribution on this count?

Economic Importance

Moreover, a case can be made to suggest that Jakarta’s failure to extend visa-free privileges to Australia runs counter to the best interests of the Indonesian nation. In the case of Bali, Australians remain the largest source of foreign visitors to the Island, claiming a whopping 24.3% market share of all foreign tourists.

With many Ozzies view Bali as their second-home or something akin to a domestic destination, Indonesia is failing to fully exploit the potential of tourist arrivals from Australia. In the case of Australians living on that country's western seaboard, it is generally cheaper to fly to Bali than it is to visit the other major population centers in Australia.

With Bali suffering enormously from officials changes in government meeting policies, a massive oversupply of hotel rooms and increasingly shorter length-of-stays – anything to boost Australian arrivals would bring welcomed and much needed economic relief to Bali’s sluggish tourism industry and help fill aircraft, both Indonesian and Australian, flying between “Down Under” and Bali.

Petty?

Reinforcing our view that pettiness prevails and no credible reasons exists for denying Australians visa-free access to Indonesia is the fact that among the list of the top 20 countries providing the most foreign visitors to Bali, a list headed by Australia, only Australia stands out in not enjoying visa-free access to Bali.

Obviously, there’s more going on here than meets the eye.

We do not question that it is the sovereign right of the Indonesian State to define its own immigration policies. But, in the spirit of a transparent and democratic nation, We call on President Joko Widodo and Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to either reconsider the policy on visa-free status for Australia or to offer the “real” reasons for the current discriminative visa policy in order that meaningful bi-lateral discussions on this issue can commence in earnest.
