IN THIS UPDATE


10th Avenue
Governor Calls for at Least One of Ten Sections of Proposed North-South Bali Highways to be Completed by 2017

Bali’s Governor Made Mangku Pastika is targeting for at least one segment of a north-south ten-section expressway connecting Denpasar-Singaraja to be constructed in 2017.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Pastika said: “At a minimum, one shortcut (segment) must be completed. We have been waiting for this proposed project for a long time, but have nothing to show. Let the other sections follow as we work together to overcome obstacles, such as the acquisition of land.”

Pastika’s remarks were made at a presentation on road construction performed his office on Tuesday, August 2, 2016.

The new road is intended to reduce traffic congestion in Bali.

The chief of the Agency for the 8th Phase of Highway Construction, Syaeful Anwar, told the press that the road connecting Bali’s southern and northern shores is comprised of 10 segments or, as termed by Bali’s officialdom, “shortcuts”

Of the 10 segments, officials say that realistically only 4 sections can be built in the short term.

Serious land acquisition issues plague the remaining 6 sections.


Double Trouble for English Tourist
Englishman Arrested in Kuta for Overstaying Visa by 11 Months and for Possession of Methamphetamines

NusaBali reports that Police from the Denpasar Narcotics Division have arrested a 58-year-old U.K. National, identified only by the initials “KH,” at a hotel near Jalan Sriwijaya in Kuta. The arrest was made on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 12:30 pm.

Police say KH is an intravenous methamphetamine user. At the time of his arrest, he was in possession of 4 packets (p.62 grams) of “shabu-shabu” the local street name of methamphetamines.

The Deputy chief of the Denpasar Police Precinct, AKBP Nyoman Artana, said the capture of KH was precipitated by reports from the public that a foreign national was carrying hypodermic needles that it was suspected he was using for narcotic injections.

Police spent a week investigating the information and observing the movements of KH.

Police placed the man under surveillance. When KH detected police were following him while eating at his hotel, he quickly left and tried to escape on a motorcycle only to be pursued and quickly apprehended by police.

When police inspected the man’s motorcycles that found hypodermic needles in the seat compartment. A subsequent search of the man’s hotel uncovered 4 packets of methamphetamines in his safety deposit box.

When arresting KH police took into custody as evidence 4 packets of methamphetamines weighing 0.62 grams, 3 hypodermic needles believed to contain narcotics, 5 pipettes, a box containing 37 hypodermic needles, a bottle of alcohol, and a pair of scissors.

KH told police he purchased the shabu-shabu two days earlier for Rp. 4 million.

KH who works as a telecommunications technician had been staying at the Kuta hotel for the past 4 months. KH, who arrived on a 30-day non-renewable visa on July 17, 2015, will potentially also face immigration charges for overstaying his visa by 11 months.


Capisce?
Italian Claiming Illegal Arrest and Detention by Immigration Loses Appeal to Bali Courts

As reported by Balidiscovery.com, The Italian Job? , an Italian man filed suit against the Denpasar, Bali Immigration office claiming he was illegally detained and charged by officials on May 22, 2016 during an evening cruise in the Port of Benoa.

During that cruise, 36-year-old Carmine Sciaudone was apprehended by immigration officers while trying to repair a projector during a cruise party and charged with working illegally without the required visa and work permit.

The Italian insisted he was not working and only offered to help repair the equipment due to his background in electronic repairs. Moreover, the Italian claimed he was only a guest on the cruise.

The Italian filed for injunctive relief with the administrative court seeking to have his arrest and incarceration declared illegal. On Monday, August 1, 2016, the Courts rejected the petition filed on Sciaudone’s behalf by his lawyers, declaring his original arrest and detention were legally correct.

As reported by Balipost.com, the administrative judge rules that Carmine Sciaudone’s arrest was in accordance with Law No. 6 of 2011 of the Immigration Rules and Regulations.

Carmine will now proceed to trial for immigration violations where he faces a possible prison term of five years, if found guilty.

Immigration officials refused to comment to the press on the decision of the procedural court that rejected the Italian’s legal appeal.


A One-Day Awakening of a Volcano
Lombok Airport Closed for Less Than 24 Hours Due to Explosion of Mount Barujari

Angkasa Pura I – the managers of the Lombok International Airport, reopened the Lombok Island airport at 8:00 am on Tuesday, August 2, 2016, after being closed on Monday due to the fallout of volcanic ash from Mount Barujari, located at Mount Rinjani, Lombok.

The State News Agency Antara quoted I Gusti Ngurah Ardika, general manager of Angkasa Pura I in Lombok, saying on Tuesday, August 2, 2016: “The results of a meeting this morning is the declaration that the condition is already safe and the airport can be opened earlier than the scheduled 10:00 am, now moved up to 8:00 am.”

The Lombok International Airport was closed the day before on Monday at 4:15 am when Mount Barujari suddenly exploded sending volcanic ash into flight patterns used for the Lombok Airport.

The decision that the Lombok Airport was once again safe for aviation was taken at a meeting between the airlines operating in and out of Lombok, aviation authorities and representatives of the Agency for Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics (BMKG). At that meeting, photos from the Himawari Satellite and observations from the Volcanic Ash Observation Center in Darwin were reviewed showing that the remaining ash in the atmosphere was very thin and did not pose a threat to aviation.

At the same time, volcanologists working on Mount Rinjani confirmed that the volcanic eruption of Mount Barujari had ceased.

The eruptions of Mount Barujari had first occurred on Monday, August 1, 2016, at 11:45 am, 11:50 am and the final eruption at 4:00 pm.

Prior to the latest explosion, Mount Barujari last exploded on October 20, 2015, which also caused temporary closures of the Lombok Airport.

During the latest volcanic eruption on Lombok, a number of flights to and from Bali’s airport were cancelled, delayed or diverted to other airports.


This Girl is Not for Sale
National Police Investigation Focuses on Human Trafficking of Underage Girls at Bali Spa

The State News Agency Antara reports that the Indonesian National police are now investigating a case of sexual exploitation of children working at a well-known spa in Bali.

Kombes Umar Surya Fana, the chief of the 3rd Sub-Directorate for Major Crime in Jakarta, told the press that 12 young girls between the ages of 13 and 15 years were employed as therapists at the subject spa.

Umar added: “We are now looking into who are the perpetrators of this crime. As regards the spa, we want to know who is responsible for establishing and owning the spa.”

Umar said the National Police Headquarters originally were informed of suspicions that a human trafficking operation was underway at a the subject spa in Bali.

A combined team from the National Police Headquarters and the Bali Provincial Police raided the subject spa only to find the establishment was fully licensed, holding all the required permits and the required work contracts for those employed there.

Unsatisfied, police continued their investigation and eventually discovered 2 girls under the age of 14 working as therapists.

“At that point, we investigated further and uncovered that there were actually 12 underage girls working at the Spa,” said Umar.

The young girls were from locations outside Bali - such as Lampung, Central Java, East Java and Kalimantan.

Police are now pursuing charges against the spa under the National Law for the Protection of Children and other laws forbidding human trafficking.

Umar concluded, saying, “We do not want the suspect in this case to get off with only three years in prison.”

Tricked

Police believe that as many as 12 children were exploited by the spa, originally lured by a recruiter promising wages of Rp. 20 million per month, plus Rp. 100,000 for every therapy treatment they performed. The young girls were also assured that they could return to their home village at any time they wished to do so.

However, in reality, the girls were only paid Rp. 6 million per month and Rp. 10,000 for each client they served. The girls were held captive and not allowed to leave their place of employment at any time.

Umar told the press that the young girls were taken from their homes and taken to Jakarta first for training before being transferred to Bali.

Police have already named as suspects the recruiter, the person who provided accommodations and others involved in exploiting the children.

Police are refusing at this point to declare that a syndicate in involved in the employment of the underage girl in the spa trade.

The girls have been removed to the custody of the Provincial Social Service where they will remain in protective custody until the case comes to trial and they can serve as witnesses for the Prosecution,

Rubbing, The Wrong Way


A Case of Insurance Fraud?
Bali Police Believe Two Australian Men Claiming They Were Attacked on Jalan Poppies II in Kuta Made a False Police Report

RadarBali.com reports that two Australians are being sought by Indonesian police on the suspicion that they falsified a crime report during their Bali holiday.

Police now believe that Benjamin James Silver (28) and James Knight Tallis (28) purposely mislead police when they claimed they were attacked by a group of young men on Jalan Poppies II in Kuta at 10:00 pm on Saturday, July 30, 2016.

Police suspect that a falsified report filed by the men was part of a scheme to defraud an insurance company.

Because of an alleged attack in which the attackers took only Rp. 50,000, Silver sustained minor injuries while Knight suffered a broken leg requiring his hospitalization at the BIMC Hospital.

After receiving the report of the attack, a quick response team from the Kuta Police Sector descended on Jalan Poppies II where the two men claimed they were attacked and beaten by a group of men for no apparent motive. Police invited Silver to join them on a crime scene visit to assist them in their investigation, but the Australian refused, claiming he was tired and wished to sleep.

Police claim that much of the report of the attack made by the two men lacks credibility. Witnesses on Jalan Poppies II who were in attendance at the time of the alleged attack had no recollection of the altercation or seeing the two injured men leave the scene.

The head of the Kuta Police Precinct, Kompol Sumara, said the men initially complained at being required to make a formal police report, but later relented saying he would do so in order to meet the requirements of his insurance company.

Increasing suspicious, police went to the room used by the men at The Bounty Hotel occupied by the two men to speak further, only to discover both had quickly departed at 6:00 pm and had returned to Australia.

Undeterred, Police said they would coordinate with the Australian Consulate in Bali in order to complete their investigation.

The head of the Kuta Police Criminal Division, Iptu Aryo Seno Wimoko, said that if it can be proven that the two men falsified a police report they could be prosecuted if they ever returned to Bali in the future.

Police said they believe the story of the attack on Jalan Poppies II has been fictionalized by the two men because the street in question has heavy pedestrian traffic 24-hours a day, with many shops and restaurants open at the very time the men claim the attack took place. Police question how such an attack could take place without being witnessed by others.

The motorcycle taxi driver who brought the men to the BIMC Hospital told police that one of the men boasted to him that he would make a police report with the Bali police on the following day (Sunday) in order to claim insurance benefits.


You’re Fired!
Australian Wanted by Police in Western Australian Explodes in Anger While Facing Immigration Charges in Bali

In an unusual turn of events in a Denpasar, Bali courtroom, an Australian citizen, in a display of great emotio,  asked that he be allowed to fire his Indonesian lawyer and represent himself before the court.

On Monday, August 1, 2016, Shaun Edward Davidson also known as Eddie Lonsdale (31) announced he wanted to dismiss his Indonesian lawyer Benny Hariono, who, the Australian contends, is not following his specific instructions in presenting his defense.

As reported by Bali Express, Davidson-Lonsdale erupted in anger when the court rejected a legal objection raised by Hariono on his defendant’s behalf.

Speaking through a court interpreter, Shaun told the court he intends to represent himself in future court proceedings.

The objections presented by Hariono, that were denied by presiding judge Made Pasek, dealt with legal issues pertaining to the location and time of the Australian’s alleged violation of immigration rules.

Charged under two sections of Indonesia’s immigration law, Shaun could be imprisoned for between 5 and 7 years.

Visibly angered by the way the court proceeding against him was being conducted, Shaun insisted he would now handle his own legal defense. The chief judge offered the man the opportunity to change his legal counsel with the cost of his defense borne by the State. Shaun, however, was adamant that he be allowed to handle his own legal affairs.

The judge has apparently agreed to Shaun’s demand to act as his own attorney, while his lawyer signaled his readiness to resign as the Australian’s lawyer. Beny Hariono told the court that he was Shaun’s second attorney to be fired by the Australian.

After the hearing, Benny Hariono presented letters from the Australian Police stating that Shaun is wanted by Western Australian Police on criminal charges, including a narcotics charge dating from 2015.

His lawyer said that in escaping Australia to Bali via Singapore, Shaun did not use a false passport but a genuine passport in another person’s name.

What’s in a Name, Anyway?


A Dejected Disabled Dutchman
Disabled Dutch Tourist Runs Amok After Being Rejected by Woman Met on Social Media

A disabled Dutch tourist, Robert Den Hartog (28), was reportedly so disappointed at being unable to strike up a closer relationship with a young women contacted on Social Media, despite having travelled all the way from Holland to Bali, that he became enraged and crashed a car into 5 parked motorcycles at the Hotel Svarna on Jalan Nakula Barat in Seminyak on Monday, August 1, 2016.

BaliPost.com reports that Den Hartog, whose legs are permanently disabled, arranged a meeting at the Hotel with his Social Media friend, a woman identified only by the initials Ci. Apparently, Ci required only a brief meeting to decide the relationship should end there and abruptly abandoned the young Dutchman.

Police theorize the man became deeply depressed and got into his car that he used to crash into 5 motorcycles parked at the hotel with his rented car.

Police were summoned to the scene where they took Den Hartog and his vehicle into custody.

Unable to care for a disabled prisoner with special medical needs, Police contacted the Dutch Consulate and a lawyer in the hope that a solution could be mediated.

Anna Indahwati, acting as the man’s attorney, told the press that Den Hartog’s highly emotional state made communication with her client problematic. Adding: “He’s like a small child and has to be gently coaxed into communicating. Maybe he is depressed after being left by the woman he met over Social Media. Even though his legs are disabled, my client can still drive a car.”

The damage caused by the Dutchman’s angry rampage is estimated at Rp. 20-30 million. Anna said it appears that the Dutch man came exclusively to Bali to meet Ci, a woman he had previously only known via Social Media.

Police say that Den Hartog is highly emotional and often flies into a rage. He has destroyed furniture at the police precinct and relieved himself on the floor of the room where he is being held.

Police have turned the man over to the Dutch Consulate who are housing the man in a hotel in Kuta.


Beware of Mercenary Monks
Immigration Captures 41 Illegal Foreigners During 2-week Crackdown in Bali

RadarBali.com reports that Bali’s rapid growth in tourism visitors is resulting in increased arrests by the Island’s immigration officials of foreigners staying or working illegally in Bali.

In a crackdown by immigration officials that began on July 18, 2016, Bali immigration officials have captured 41 foreigners and charged them with violations. The breakdown of those netted in 15 days of sweeps includes 25 Chinese nationals, 1 Ghanaian, 9 Indians, 1 U.K. 4 South Korean, and 1 Polish national. Included among those taken into custody were 3 Chinese Nationals posing as Buddhists Monks captured while begging for money in Kuta. According to the head of the Ngurah Rai Immigration office, Yosep H.A. Renung Widodo, one of the ‘Buddhist monks” was captured in his Kuta area hotel room that he was sharing with his wife.

The Jakarta Post identified the three “Buddhist monks” as Chen Kexin (59), Xuanhai (54) and Huang Jingzhong (55) who were separately arrested over a one-week period in Kuta in Legian. Immigration said the men were only posing as Buddhist monks, plotting with each other to solicit “donations” from the public.

Yosep told the press: “Apparently, they have wives. We know that monks would not have wives. So, it means that they are only acting.”

Immigration officials said the three men entered Indonesia via Jakarta on tourist visas in July, but are working in alleged religious roles that are a violation of the law.

Officials have also discovered counterfeit Chinese currency in the possession of one of the men, a matter that is now being investigated separately by the Police.

The Ghanaian woman captured was traveling on a fake passport, the 9 Indians for working at locations that did not match their immigration sponsorship, a Pole illegally working in a dive business, and 4 South Koreans operating an illegal surfing school.

The head of immigration said that efforts to capture foreigners violating the law in Bali is frustrated  by a lack of enforcement personnel. The Directorate General of Immigration only has a complement of 7,500 officers to cover the entire nation. Bali immigration officials say the burden on immigration officials will only increase as the government targets 20 million foreign tourists each year.

Interviews with immigration officials continue.

Well Known Bali-based Photographer Joe Kennedy Dies after Motorcycle Mishap

Well-known professional photographer and Irish-expatriate in Bali since 2005, Joe Kennedy died in the early hours of Thursday, August 4, 2016, at Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar.

He had been hospitalized since Friday, July 29, 2016, following a nighttime accident while driving a motorcycle in Denpasar.

After working in the oil industry for 24 years in a variety of countries that included Mexico, Russia, Brazil, France, Bulgaria, US, China, Norway, Denmark and Indonesia, Kennedy embarked on a new career as a professional photographer in 2004, establishing Joe Kennedy Photography in 2005.

Aiming to Fly Higher
Garuda Indonesia Loses US$63.2 Million in First Half of 2016

The Jakarta Post reports that Garuda Indonesia has booked a loss of US$63.2 million during the first six-months of 2016.

This compares to the same six-months in 2015 when the Indonesian National Carrier recorded a net profit of US$29.3 million.

The CEO of Garuda Indonesia, Arif Wibowo, blames the change in fortunes on intense competition on domestic flights and the resulting lower prices. WIbowo said yields on domestic flights were down nearly 10% for the first half of 2016.

On the plus side for Garuda, but insufficient to make red figures black, were a passenger revenue increase of 9.8%, a 19% increase in Citilink’s passenger revenues and a 20% increase Citilink’s passenger capacity.

Garuda’s total revenue decreased by 4.1% for the first half of 2016 totaling US$1.76 billion, while US$1.84 billion in revenues were recorded for the same half-year in 2015.

Arif Wibowo dismissed the current losses as transitory, with good prospects ahead due to the strengthening value of the Indonesian Rupiah and the deployment of new aircraft on new routes.


Help Less Wanted
Bali Manpower Department: Foreign Workers Declining in Bali

Bisnis Bali reports that the number of foreigners working in Bali holding officially authorized work permits is on the decline.

Quoting the head of the Manpower and Transmigration Office in Bali, I Gusti Agung Ngurah Sudarsana, the current number of licensed expat workers in Bali is put at 1,600, This total is down 11% from 2014-2015 when the total number of expats working in the province was put at 1,800.

Sudarsana insists that, despite the downturn in foreign workers in Bali, the transfer of skills and technology to Indonesian workers continues without pause.

Foreigners wishing to work in Bali or any part of Indonesia must first obtain approval from the Ministry of Manpower in Jakarta with the Bali office only concerned with extensions and enforcement of the rules against those found working illegally or not in compliance with their permits.

Sudarsana said Australians continue to be the largest group of foreign workers in Bali, with most of these employed in the education and tourism sectors.


Toxic End to Life
Mysterious Snake Bite Claims Life of Man in Ubud, Central Bali

Tribun-Bali.com reports that those living near Banjar Sindhu on the Sayan Ridge in Ubud, Central Bali are in something of a state of terror following the death of a construction worker due to a snake bite in the early hours of Friday, August 5, 2016.

Police report that a construction worker from Jember in Java, Karmin (31), saw two small black snakes harboring under a set of stairs on Thursday evening at 11:00 pm. The man captured the two snakes, but in the process was bitten in the hand, after which he tossed the reptiles into an adjoining field.

Thinking the incident was of little consequence, Karmin went to bed for the night. Shortly after midnight, he woke up a co-worker, Budi (30), complaining he felt dizzy and unwell and then went back to sleep.

Karmin awoke again at 4:00 am and told co-workers that he felt increasingly unwell and suspected it was due to the bite of the small snake some four hours earlier. His friends took little note of the man’s complaints until 6:00 am when Karmin began to suffer from violent chills and shakes. His friends rushedt him to a local health center where he died a short time after his arrival.

Concerned villages launched an unsuccessful search for the snakes or their nesting place. Concerned parents forbid their children from playing unattended in the village that is still surrounded by rice fields.

Separately, Ron Lilley, an experienced herpetologist and the leader of a snake rescue group calling itself Bali Snake Patrol, has commented on FaceBook that because of the time of the bite and physical description provided he believes the snake that delivered the bite is an all-black black version of the so-called Blue Krait (Bungarus candidus). This snake is known in Bali as "lipi poleng" or “Ular weling" in Indonesian.

Lilley said this snake can have equally-spaced black and white bands or, alternatively, be dark brown or light brown in color. The skin tends to be very shiny and polished.

Active late at night, human interactions are rare. The Kait will, however, bite if disturbed at any time of the day. Possessing venom that causes respiratory distress, often resulting in death with one hour.

While no Krait anti-venom is stocked in Bali or anywhere else in Indonesia, it is recommended that anyone bitten by this snake seek medical care that may chances of survival.

Lilley recommends people bring a flashlight when walking in dark places and to never disturb or pick up a snake.

Putting the King of the Sea in Cages
PHRI Officials in North Bali Wants to Build Mid-Ocean Cages to Captivate Dolphins for Tourist Visits

The chairman of the Buleleng chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI), Dewa Suardipa, is suggesting that middle ocean dolphin cages be built in offshore locations near Lovina in order “optimize” the attractiveness of dolphin tours promoted to North Bali tourist visitors.

Currently, hundreds of domestic and international tourists visiting Bali’s north coast pay local boatmen to take them out on early morning boat tours in search of the pods of dolphins that live in the area.

Suardipa has the view that local boats chasing after the wild dolphins cause stress on mammals and that would be remedied by turning wild dolphins into captive dolphin held in offshore cages. Continuing to describe his vision, Suardipa told Bali Post that the caged dolphins then could be summoned with whistles and pieces of fish to appear on command for visiting tourists.

Apparently, Suardipa believes dolphins held in cages become somehow stress-free.

The PHRI official estimates that the offshore cages could be constructed for Rp. 10 million each.

Suardipa’s proposal is almost certain to draw strong condemnation from environmentally minded group who view any situation that makes dolphins captive for tourism displays and environmentally non-sustainable due to the ill effects, pain and shortened life-span such programs inflicted on theses ocean mammals.


Hurry Up and Wait!
Bali Lawmaker Complains about Long Lines at Bali’s Domestic Departure Terminal

The chairman of Commission I of the Badung Regency House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), Wayan Suyasa, has complained that departing on a domestic flight is an experience not unakin to visiting a crowded flea market (pasar loak), a deficiency he blames on the incorrect placement of x-rays machines used to examine all luggage as passengers enter the domestic departure terminal.

Speaking on Sunday, July 31, 2016, Suyasa complained, “The atmosphere is like a flea market due to the rush of passengers preparing to fly out of Bali.”

The Golkar legislator said that while he fully appreciates the need to x-ray the luggage of all departing passengers to prevent criminal acts and to conform with the requirements of the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), but feels the X-ray machines are placed too close to the entrance causing long lines that overflow into the areas outside the actual departure hall.

Calling for a relocation of the x-ray examination process, Suyasa said the current situation threatens Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport’s international reputation.

Responding to Suyasa’s remarks, the spokesman for the Airport, Yudi Novan, explained that the location and operation of the x-ray machines in the domestic departure hall are in compliance with the latest instructions issued by the Minister of Transportation. Those rules require a double inspection of luggage as passengers enter the departure terminal and again before boarding the aircraft.

The inspection of hand luggage at the very entrance to the departure terminal also addresses the risk of terrorist trying to access the crowded check-in areas with destructive devices and weapons.

Yudi Novan said the number of x-ray machines was recently doubled to expedite the movement of airline passengers.

But, he explained, during peak seasons of passenger travel backlogs of passengers waiting to pass the x-ray screening process will occur.

When she knocked on the gate of the villa there was no answer after which she called Berger’s handphone, also to no avail. She then called the villa owner who brought a spare key to open the villa.

Police were called and found no indication of foul play.

In the absence of an autopsy, police theorize Berger died of a heart attack, with medications found in the villa suggesting he was under treatment for cardiac deficiencies.
