BALI UPDATE #1055 - 21 November 2016

IN THIS UPDATE


A Needed Application of Technology
Japanese Industry and Universities to Help Bali Overcome Traffic Congestion and Trash Management

The Bali Academy for Information Management and Computer Technology (STIKOM Bali) in cooperation with the Fujitsu Corporation, Akita University, and Yamaguchi University is offering software applications to the Municipality of Denpasar in Bali to reduce traffic congestion in the Island’s Capital.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Professor Wirawan of STIKOM Bali says the software application provides technological solutions addressing traffic control, public hygiene and maintaining green park area.

In welcoming the offer of assistance, the Mayor of Denpasar, IB Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra, has called for greater focus to be given to solving the problems of traffic congestion and public cleanliness. Rai said that the main problem Denpasar confronts is waste management, particularly in areas where garbage dumps are located.

Mayor Rai Mantra said that Columbia was once identified as having the worst traffic congestion in the world, but had managed to largely overcome that problem through advanced traffic management.

“Hopefully with these applications (from Japan), traffic congestion in Denpasar can be remedied,” said Rai Mantra.


Selamat Pagi Vietnam!
Indonesia Lion Air to Take 49% Stake in a New Vietnam Airline Venture

The Jakarta Post reports that the Indonesian Air Carrier Lion Air is seeking to establish a joint venture in Vietnam to commence operation in the second half of 2017, using Lion’s premium brand of Batik Air.

Lion Air’s president director Edward Sirait confirmed his airline, the largest privately run air carrier in Indonesia, is in the process of negotiating with a local partner in Vietnam.

The proposed joint venture would see Lion Air with a 49% share and 51% held by the Vietnamese partner.

Earlier plans announced in 2014 to form an Australia wholly-owned subsidiary have been postponed indefinitely in order to first address the rapid expansion of the ASEAN air market.

In 2012 Lion Air created a Malaysian subsidiary Malindo Air and in 2013 a Thai Lion Air operation in Thailand.


Offer Onto the Gods Only Local Fruits
Governor Wants Imported Fruits Banned from Balinese Ritual Offerings

The Deputy Governor of Bali, Ketut Sudikerta, is encouraging the public to propagate and use local fruits for all religious offerings in keeping Provincial Law Number 3 of 2013 on the protection of local produce.

“Local Fruit tastes as good as imported fruits. By using local fruits we indirectly help the farmers earn a larger income,” said Sudikerta, quoted by the National Press Agency Antara.

The deputy-governor also preserves local fruit varieties for development in the future.

The deputy-governor bemoaned that fact that some “gebogan” offerings are using imported fruits. "Gebogan" are the colorful, tiered uniquitous offerings found at Balinese religious ceremonies.

“Please use only local fruit products for Balinese offerings,” bemoaned Sudikerta




Meetings, Bloody Meetings
ForBALI Questions Authority and Purpose of Meeting Called in Jakarta to Discuss Reclamation of Benoa Bay

Metrobali.com reports PT Tirta Wahana Bali Internasional (PT TWBI) - the company desiring to reclaim Bali’s Benoa Bay, is renewing efforts to be allowed to proceed with their controversial development of a tourism and entertainment complex in once-protected mangrove forest.

Working through the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs, an invitation, dated November 8, 2016, has been issued to selected parties to convene a coordinating meeting in Jakarta to clarify the legal status of the project.

I Wayan Gendo Suardana, the coordinator of the Anti-Reclamation Movement ForBALI (Bali’s People Forum Against the Reclamation of Benoa Bay), has expressed his dismay and surprise that the Ministerial invitation has been couched in terms suggesting the meeting is being convened at the request of PT TWBI.

Gendo also questioned the composition of the list of invitees, adding: “ForBALI received the invitation to the coordinating meeting from the Ministry in Jakarta for the purpose of responding to a letter sent by PT TWBI seeking legal clarification. We are very surprised that we have not received a detailed agenda for the subject meeting. If the meeting is being convened for legal clarification, in what context has ForBALI been invited? What does legal clarification men in this instance?”

Continuing, Gendo said: “What’s even more surprising, after I examined the attendance list attached to the invitation, especially the non-governmental invitees most of those attending are from the organizations who support PT TWBI, such as Yayasan Bumi Bali Bagus and the Forum Peduli Mangrove Bali. We often encounter this sort of composition of an invitation list, when the Ministry should (also) be inviting elements of the public opposed to the reclamation project, such as the members of the traditional villages who are leading the movement against the reclamation of Benoa Bay.”

On November 14, 2016, ForBALI sent a letter to the deputy for coordination of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights seeking more information on the invitation to attend the meeting convened at PT TWBI’s request. ForBALI is seeking an explanation on the purpose and goals of the proposed meeting. ForBALI is also seeking a clarification of the legal capacity of the deputy for coordination of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights and the Coordinator for Human Rights.

ForBALI is also questioning why the proposed meeting neglected to invite organizations involved in the Benoa Bay debate such as the Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (YLBHI) and the Indonesian Association of Legal Aid and Human Rights (PBHI).

“Frankly we question in what capacity the Coordinating Ministry for Political, Legal and Security Affairs is convening this meeting. Why, then, is the Minister so very responsive to act on a request from a member of the private sector, in this case PT TWBI. Accordingly, we ask if the Coordinating Minister would take a similar action and convene a meeting if ForBALI sought such facilitation from the Government?” asked Gendo rhetorically.

Gendo is awaiting a formal explanation about the meeting being held in Jakarta, saying ForBALI would not attend without a fuller explanation.

In conclusion, explaining why ForBALI would not attend the Jakarta meeting, Gendo said: “We are not anti-dialogue, providing the dialogue is conducted in an open and clear manner and with participants attending on an equal footing.”

Bali Elephant Park Honored at World Luxury Hotel Awards
Bali Elephant Safari Park Named as World’s Best Eco Safari Lodge

Bali’s Elephant Safari Park & Lodge was honored as Indonesia’s best Luxury Eco Safari Lodge at the 10th World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016 held in Doha, Qatar on Saturday, October 29, 2016

Awarded at the end of a year-long assessment, the Park & Lodge were cited in winning the award for its great attention to detail, including the selection of the micro-climate at Taro Village in Bali as that most suitable for the Sumatran elephants, well manicured green tropical gardens providing serene and fresh ambience to visitors, one of the island’s largest orchid collections, and a luxury jungle lodge providing five-star level of service.

"We are delighted to receive the award. It is our commitment, since the beginning, to maintain the wellbeing of the elephants at our park as well as to preserve the environment, and at the same time we continue to provide our guests with the best service and hospitality," said Arifin Tirta Wijata, the general manager of Bali Adventure Tours, who own and manage the Park.

ry Lodge provides five categories of luxury accommodation: Park View Rooms, Garden View Rooms, Paddy View Rooms, Lake View Rooms, and the Taro Suite that boasts an 180° view of the park as well as a private bar, spacious living room, Jacuzzi and a spacious balcony. While each room type offers its own unique view of the park, the highlight remains the close proximity of all rooms to the majestic elephant who live at the Park. Every Park and Garden view room features a loading platform from which guests can be picked up from their front door and taken on a journey into the jungle!

The first of its kind in Asia, Bali’s Elephant Safari Park & Lodge has become a center of “best practice” demonstrating how elephants and humans can co-exist harmoniously in a captive environment.

We Felt the Earth Move
Indian Ocean Earthquake Felt Over Large Area on Wednesday, November 16, 2016

The National Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) reports that an earthquake that stuck at on off-shore location south of Malang in the Indian Ocean on Wednesday evening, November 16, 2016, was felt as far away as East Java, Bali, and Lombok.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the chief of BMKG’s Earthquake and Tsunami Warning Division, Daryono, confirmed the shake map of the 6.2 (Richter scale) earthquake affected Yogyakarta in Central Java, East Java, Bali and Lombok.

The strongest land-based effect of the quake that struck shortly after 11:00 pm Bali times was felt in Malang, Karangkates, Kepanjen, Lumajang, and Jember.

Some minor property damage to buildings in Central Java is associated with the earthquake, but there have been reports of injuries or deaths.

The epicenter of the quake was in the Indian Ocean at a depth of 91 kilometers 165 kilometers southeast of the City of Malang.


Room with Your Board for Up to Five Years
Russian Tourist Shoplifts Surfing Board

Police is Kuta have arrested a 22-year-old Russian visitor, Oleg Bekotov, after he stole a surfboard from the Rip Curl Shop on Monday, November 1, 2016.

Kompas.com reports that Oleg came to the shop with a companion and took a surfboard worth Rp. 10 million on display to his motorcycle parked near the Kuta Art Market.

Police say an employee saw the Russian leave with the surfboard and gave chase, apprehending the man until police could be called.


Wretched Refuse of Our Teeming Shores
Kuta Seasonal Wash Up of Trash and Debris to Reach its Peak in December 2016

The annual inundation of ocean-borne flotsam and jetsam has begun washing ashore in Kuta, Bali. The shoreline-filled with trash is most evident along a four-kilometer stretch of beach from Petitenget to the main beachfront in Kuta.

As a result, NusaBali reports that the Badung Public Hygiene and Parks Department have declared a “Class I” status (Siaga Satu) along the beach, effective Friday, November 18, 2014.

Based on the experience of years past, the accumulation of trash on Kuta’s shore is precipitated by seasonal westerly winds that are expected to peak in December 2016.

Trash had begun to accumulate along Kuta Beach since mid-November, comprised of plastic, discarded trash and fallen trees.

With the announcement of “Siaga I” status, quick response teams are now on stand-by to clear trash as it floats ashore. The response teams are also busy advising visiting tourist that the unsightly condition of Kuta Beach is, by and large, a recurring seasonal phenomenon.

During the “Siaga I” status, the normal deployment of 26 beach cleaners along Kuta Beach now has four loaders and four trucks cleaning the beach with as many as 1,000 stand-by personnel available to assist in the clean-up process.


Cleared for Take Off
Anti-Narcotics Police Screen Pilots and Cabin Crew at Bali’s Airport

NusaBali reports that the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNNP) undertook a surprise sweeping operation at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on Thursday, November 17, 2016, performing urinalysis screening on pilots and cabin crews.

As many as 30 cabin crew and pilots were tested by BNNP were tested, while a separate team surveyed cargo areas with drug sniffer dogs.

Both surprise sweeps failed to turn up any positive presence of narcotics.

The chief of BNNP Bali, I Ketut Artha, said that Bali as an international tourism destination is a target for international drug dealers. For that reason, BNNP will continue to intensify surprise screening at airports.

The most recent screening of cabin crew and pilots focused on the flight crews of Garuda Indonesia and Air Asia.


Taking the Lead on Nusa Penida
Governor Pastika Taking 11 Cabinet Ministers on Working Visit to Nusa Penida

In order to help develop Nusa Penida, Governor Made Mangku Pastika will invite 11 Cabinet Ministers to the small neighboring island that forms part of the Klungkung Regency of Bali on November 26, 2016.

As reported by NusaBali, among the Ministers joining the visit to Nusa Penida with Bali’s Governor are: Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs Darwin Nasution; Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati; Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi; Minister of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency Bambang Brodjonegoro; Minister of Public Works and Public Housing Basuki Hadimuldjono; Minister of Education and Culture Muhadjir Effendy; Minister of Tourism Arief Yahya; Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Susi Pudjiastuti; Minister of Agriculture Andi Amran Sulaeman; Minister of Health Nila Farid Moeloek; and Minister of Villages & Disadvantaged Regions Marwan Jafar.

The chief of the Bali Provincial Planning Agency (Bappeda), Putu Astawa, said the 11 ministers are being invited to Nusa Penida in order to address obstacles and problems being encountered in developing the island’s economy.

The VIP group of 11 ministers will depart from the Port of Benoa on Saturday, November 26, 2016, at 9:00 am with meeting conducted on board a commercial day cruise vessel while the ship is underway from Bali to Nusa Penida. At Nusa Penida the Minister will be taken to visit Crystal Bay and a local seaside waterfall at Sumber Air Guyangan. Planners have identified the waterfall as a potential source of fresh water for 10 villages on the Island currently suffering from acute water shortages.

Later the Minister will witness the installation of a boundary tower marker (Patok Terluar), inspect the location of the recent tragedy at “Yellow Bridge” that killed 8 and injured 34; and visit the local mangrove preserve.

The group will depart at 3:00 pm for the cruise back to the Port of Benoa.

At the end of the trip, Governor Pastika hopes the Minister will see the potential for developing Nusa Penida and be able to agree on joint steps and policies to that end.

Astawa said the Minister would be asked to provide funding for a crossing port, infrastructure projects and the development of tourism objects.

Stayin’ Alive
Warning and Advice Issued to Australian School Leavers Celebrating in Bali

Dailytelegraph.com.au has published a timely warning to Australian school leavers (“Schoolies”) planning to travel to Bali to celebrate their graduation from high school.

The article also contains a stern warning from the Kuta Precinct Chief of Police Wayan Sumarka warning that graduating revelers can expect to be arrested if they break the law in Bali.

Advice is also shared from Bali International Medical Center who cautioned party participants to only drink branded alcoholic beverages, not to try to learn to drive a motorcycle in Bali, not to drive while intoxicated, always wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle, purchase travel insurances, bring a pre-signed medical consent form from your parents, and not to use narcotics of any sort while in Bali.

Some 6,000 Australian “schoolies” are expected to invade Bali over the coming weeks touring the island’s tourist spots and partying like there’s no tomorrow. Sadly, using past years as an indication, there will be "no tomorrow" for some of the young Australian who fatally overstep their new found freedom succumbing to death as the results of alcohol poisoning, narcotic abuse, swimming accidents, road accidents and even falling from the upper floor of local hotels.

Bali police will be out in force, particularly in the Kuta Seminyak areas, to enforce the peace. Special police posts will also be in operation.


Make a Wish!
Kids in Cancer Ward of Bali’s Sanglah Hospital Spend a Happy Day with the Coach of Bali United Football Club

The children being treated for various forms of cancer at Denpasar’s Sanglah General Hospital recently made a wish that came true with the visit of, Indra Sjafri, the charismatic coach of the Bali United Football Club who spent part of Thursday, November 17, 2016, at the children’s cancer ward.

The visit was part of a “Make a Wish” movement at the hospital that works to bring both joy and hope to children afflicted with potentially fatal illness.

Coach Indra’s visit to the cancer ward materialized after five kids being treated at Sanglah General Hospital expressed the wish to meet “the Coach.”

Coach Indra, who once coached the Under-19 Indonesian National Team, brought jerseys and soccer balls, chatted with each of the children and posed for countless individual and group photos.

“Hopefully, my visit will give added spirit to the children who are experiencing a severe test from God and give them the strength to continue their treatment,” explained Coach Indra.

He apologized to the children that the team members of the Bali United Football Club were unable to join him on his visit because they were busy practicing for an upcoming match. Adding, “I hope the team will join me on a future visit.”

As reported by NusaBali, the management of the “Make a Wish” group at Sanglah General Hospital is working to make dreams come true for both children and adults suffering from cancer at the Hospital who have made wishes for future visits by artists, athletes, and politicians.


Missing the Plot for 44 Years
Bali Province House of Representatives in Search of Missing Plot of Land and Shares in the Sanur Hyatt Hotel

Commission I of the Bali Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) has resurrected a long-standing case and held hearings on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, to try to determine the current status of a 3.7 hectare plot of land owned by the Province that became part of the Sanur Hyatt Hotel that was built in 1971 by PT Wynncor Bali.

The most recent hearings held at the DPRD-Bali were unable to summon a representative the Bali Hyatt or the Bali office of the National Land Authority (BPN).

At the hearing, the lawmakers said the 3.7-hectare parcel of land owned by the Province and forming part of the hotel complex was in a “status quo” standing because a lawsuit over the land remains before the Indonesian Supreme Court. A special committee of the DPRD-Bali issued the “status quo” declaration in 2014.

Surprising those attending the hearing was the news that the operating permits for the hotel had been extended by the Municipality of Denpasar, citing as an excuse a recommendation from the Province.

The DPRD said they had less interest in an ongoing civil suit between PT Wynncor Bali and the estate of Widodo Soekarno before the Supreme Court and were more intent in securing control of the 3.7-hectare parcel of land and the Province’s entitlement to share’s in the Bali Hyatt Hotel in Sanur.

The original plan was for the land owned by the Provincial Government to be converted into shares in the hotel in 1972. It appears that the shares in the Hotel and any related dividends due to the Province in the ensuing 40 plus years have mysteriously gone to the side.

Members of the DPRD-Bali complained that given the fact that hundreds of billions of Rupiahs in Provincial money was at stake, it was unacceptable that the Hotel and BPN failed to attend the hearing.

Dewa Rai Adi, a member of Commission I of the DPRD-Bali was quoted by NusaBali alleging there was "high-class manipulation” at play in the disappearance of a publicly owned asset constituting 3.7 hectares of valuable land.

Legislators also insist that the value of the Province’s investment in the Bali Hyatt Hotel should have been preserved through any transfer of ownership in the hotel over the past 44 years. The DPRD points to letters of agreement made during the reign of Governor Soekarmen that converted the provincial land at the site into shares in the hotel property.

The Bali Hyatt in Sanur is presently closed and undergoing rebuilding as a new Hyatt Brand - Andaz Hotel on the same site.

Caught with Someone Else’s Wallet
Algerian Purse Snatcher Facing Justice in Denpasar, Bali Courts

An Algerian tourist is appearing before the Denpasar Courts for stealing a wallet of a customer in a discothèque in Kuta.

A visiting female tourist named Rosalinsa told the court how on Thursday, November 3, 2016, Algerian Hacene Hanifi (46) stole her wallet while she was dining at a restaurant.

The woman was reporting her missing wallet to the police when she received an SMS from her bank advising that a transaction had just been done at a local bar on a credit card missing with her wallet. Police managed to trace the man and the missing wallet to the bar where he was partying with an associate named Abdullah.

Hanifi told the court he was compelled to steal because of a lack of personal funds that happened when money promised by his parents in Algeria was late in being transferred to Bali.

The Court case continues in the Denpasar Court.

Someone, Please, Take the Trash Out
Australian Journalist Quizzes Bali’s Deputy Governor about TPA Suwung – the Noxious Waster Dump Growing at Gateway to Bali Toll Road

Bali’s Deputy Governor, Ketut Sudikerta, in an interview with Cindy Wockner from News Corporation Australia on Saturday, November 19, 2016, the well-known Australian journalist inquired after the status of the massive rubbish dump at Suwung, South Denpasar and what is being done by the Provincial Government to deal with what has become a growing eyesore and environmental problem.

Suwung Rubbish Dump (TPA Suwung), occupying a site of between 30-40 hectares at the northern entrance to Bali’s Jasa Marga Toll Road, receives an estimated 1,500 tons of new trash every day that adds to an already 15-meter-high mountain of trash that putrefies the atmosphere and poisons the water in a wide area of the south Island.

As reported by Metrobali.com, Sudikerta told the Australian journalist that Bali is steadfast in dealing with issues of cleanliness and hygiene - both of which form part of an absolute commitment of problems to be overcome by the Provincial Administration.

Sudikerta told of past meetings convened by the Governor with regents and mayors in Bali to discuss controlling trash disposal,and the failure and eventual termination of PT Navigat Organic Energy Indonesia (PT NOEI) who failed in their mission to recycle trash into energy production.

The Provincial Government is now looking the pros and cons of running the TPA Suwung on its own or delegating this task to a private contractor. Also under consideration, are plans to pass regulations that will allow levying a “tipping fee” on all trucks bring trash for disposal at TPA Suwung.


Homeward Bound
Schapelle Corby Expected to Return to Australia in May 2017 after 12 Year in Bali

New.Com.Au reports that celebrity Australian drug smuggler Schapelle Corby may leave Bali in May of 2017, ending her 12-year stay in Bali when she is deported by immigration authorities at the end of her current parole period, granted after serving two-thirds of a 15-year prison term in Kerobokan Prison.

Living outside of prison walls since February 2014, Schapelle has since made mandatory monthly reports to her Indonesian parole officer as a condition of her parole.

That period of parole will end on May 27, 2017, when it is expected that immigration officials will place her in quarantine as they expeditiously make preparations for her deportation back to Australia.

It is also expected that Corby will be barred from returning to Indonesia for a specified period.

Schapelle Corby was sentenced to 20 years in prison in May of 2005 after being found guilty of attempting to smuggle 4.2 kilograms of marijuana through Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport. That sentence was later affirmed by the Indonesian Supreme Court, but reduced by 5 years in May 2012 after petitioning then President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono for clemency on the grounds of mental illness.


Fixing the Sarbagita Bus System
Editorial: Three Improvements That Would Make the Trans Sarbagita Bus System User-Friendly

Since it began operations in August 2011, the Trans Sarbagita Bus System has failed to make the desired positive impact on the daily lives of the people of Bali or reduce the severe traffic congestion on the Island's roads.

Running at a deficit estimated at Rp. 18 billion a year, the Trans Sarbagita Bus System generates only Rp. 2.5 billion in ticket revenues. The system is estimated to carry 870,000 passengers in 2016 or some 2,500 passengers each day.

As a result, provincial legislators are urging a critical review of the Trans Sarbagita System to determine the system’s long-term viability and whether or not the province should continue to bear the cost of the large subsidies that allow the bus system to continue to operate.

But, in fact, the fundamental thinking on why Bali desperately needs a reliable mass transit system remains sound and very much a necessary part of Bali's public service infrastructure.

Instead of doing away completely with the Trans Sarbagita Bus System, we believe a number of basic adjustments in how the system operates will increase use of the mass transit system and it popularity with the public.

Improved Bus Halts

The bus halts constructed on roadsides across Bali where passengers embark and disembark the bus system fail to work on a number of levels.

Built on the side or roads instead of in dedicated bus bays, busses block traffic and are a major cause of the very traffic jams they were intended to eliminate whenever they make a stop. Squeezed onto the side of roads, the bus halts also block sidewalks, forcing pedestrians to step into busy roadways at considerable personal risk.

The halts that are also very narrow in their construction, make it virtually impossible for the disabled and elderly to navigate the halts and board a bus - one of the very subsectors of the public that the mass transit is meant to serve. Because of their limited size, the bus halts are woefully insufficient to provide shelter for anything but the small number of passengers waiting in the rain for the bus to come.

Clearly, a major rethink of the halts and their construction is in order.

Finally, the way the bus halts have been constructed requires passengers getting on and off the bus to gather the courage to daringly “jump the gap” between the halt and bus door. Again, this is both dangerous and less than helpful to the aged, children and disabled passengers

Satellite Parking

With an estimated 5,000 new motorbikes taking to Bali’s roadways each month, much of the Island’s traffic congestion is linked to motorcycle traffic carrying workers to and from their daily jobs.

We recommend that some thought should be given to building large parking lots for motorbikes adjacent to outlying bus stops located in residential areas of the island where hotel and company employees can store their bikes until they return at the end of the work day.

These parking satellites would, ideally, be provided at no charge and equipped with CCTV cameras for added security.

Social Network and Application Friendly

Modern mass transport systems around the world are increasingly “connected” to the social network as a means of maintaining close contact with the public they serve.

In Bali, the Social Network could also include the very affordable accessibility software provided by GPS systems that would let passengers monitor the movement of buses on the various bus routea operated by Trans Sarbagita, advising via hand phones exactly how long someone must wait for the next bus.

The reasoning behind Bali’s Trans Sarbagita Bus System is sound. What remains to be done is for the system’s management to raise it game and create a service more in keeping with modern mass transport practice and the needs of the people of Bali they seek to serve.
