BALI UPDATE #1059 - 19 December 2016

IN THIS UPDATE


Change at the Top of Bali Police
Petrus Golose Named New Bali Chief of Police Replacing Sugeng Priyanto

In what is described as a normal rotation of command, Inspector General Sugeng Priyanto has been replaced as Bali’s Chief of Police by Inspector General Petrus Golose.

Golose, originally from Manado, North Sulawesi, comes to his new post in Bali after an assignment on the National Anti-Terrorism Agency (BNPT) where he was in charge of international cooperation in the fight on terror.

The change of command was made officials by a classified telegram sent from the Indonesian Chief of Police General Tito Karnavian, sent to the Bali Police Headquarters on Monday, December 12, 2016. That telegram also confirmed the promotion of Bali’s outgoing Chief of Police as the deputy-chief of the police agency charged with maintaining national security (Wakabaharkam).

As reported by Metrobali.com, the official handover of command must take place before December 26, 2016.

During his assignment fighting terrorism as part of the elite Densus 88 Anti-Terror Squad, Petrus Golose worked together with the current National Chief of Police, Tito Karnavaian, in the raid that saw Malaysian terrorist Dr. Azahari shot by police in Malang, East Java on November 9, 2005. For his work in bringing Azahari to ground, Golose was given an award of honor from the Indonesian government.

Bali’s new Police Chief has worked as a member of top-level investigative teams and traveled on official assignments to Singapore, Malaysia, USA, Japan, Timor Leste, New Zealand, Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines.

Petrus Reinhard Golose is 51 years old.

Bank Indonesia Tells Bali Governor that Steps Underway to Curb Illegal Moneychangers and Keep Money in Circulation Crisp and Clean

Bali’s Governor Made Mangku Pastika has called on the Bali branch chief of Bank Indonesia, Causa Iman Karana, to take anticipative steps to prevent the appearance of unlicensed money changers on the Island.

As reported by Beritadewata.com, the Governor is concerned that illegal moneychangers will defraud tourists and damage Bali’s tourism image. The Governor’s comments were made during a visit by the Bank Indonesia Bali Chief call to the Governor’s office on Wednesday, December 14, 2016.

Pastika said: “There are many complaints from foreign tourists about the activities of unlicensed money changers that are damaging Bali’s tourism reputation. Tourists are reluctant to return to Bali because they feel they have been cheated. For this reason, I ask Bank Indonesia to take action against unlicensed moneychangers and not allow this group to blemish our tourism industry.”

At the same meeting, Governor Pastika asked Bank Indonesia to pay close attention to the money in circulation in Bali and ensure bank notes are clean and do not smell.

Causa Iman Karana told the Governor that Bank Indonesia maintains an online application (SIKUPVA) that shows the location of all licensed moneychangers and is working with Traditional Villages (Desa Adat) in Bali to take action against unlicensed moneychangers.

Terror in a Suitcase
Bali Police Respond to Bomb Scare When Empty Suitcase Left in Front of South Denpasar Fuel Depot

DenPost reports that a still-unidentified man wearing a raincoat threw a suitcase onto the foreyard of the busy Pertamina Fuel Depot at Sanggaran, South Denpasar.

CCTV cameras recorded the incident, now considered by police intended to create terror, at 5:30 am on Thursday, December 15, 2016. The head of the Denpasar Police Precinct, Hadi Purnomo, said: “The perpetrator is suspected of trying to create an atmosphere of terror. Before he placed the suitcase (in the yard), the man meandered back and forth in front or the crime scene. The suspect came from the direction of the toll road and hurried off in an easterly direction (towards the toll road).”

When police were informed of the suspicious suitcase in front of the fuel depot a bomb-handling unit rushed to the location. Approaching the object with great caution, police personnel scanned the bag with computer-operated devicethat showed the suitcase to be empty.

Police continue to examine the gray Pierre Cardin suitcase and the CCTV recordings to determine the identity of the man who left the bag at the location.


Smoked Fish
Two Fishing Boats Damaged by Fire at Bali’s Port of Benoa

DenPost and Radar Bali report that a fire at the western fishing piers at Bali’s Port of Benoa caused extensive damage to two ships - the KM Bali Nusa and KM Milinium Jaya I on Thursday, December 16, 2016.

No injuries or death were reported from the fire that is estimated to have caused Rp. 150 million in property damage.

A man on watch at the KM Milinium Jaya I noticed smoke coming from the engine room of the ship, sourced to a fire that quickly spread to the KM Bali Nusa tied alongside the burning vessel. Reports say the KM Milinium Jaya I suffered Rp. 100 million in damage while the adjacent KM Bali Nusa endured damaged estimated at Rp. 50 million.

A member of the Port Police (KP3), I Nyoman Gatra, said fires were commonplace at the fishing port due to short circuits and careless smoking by crewmembers. Adding to the danger of fire is the overcrowding of vessels docked at the park that permit a fire not only to spread quickly, but also impedes efforts to extinguish any blaze.

The fire was brought under control when six fire trucks responded to the alarm.

Police continue to investigate the fire they believed was caused by a fuel leak on board the KM Milinium Jaya I.

An Uproar on Bali’s North Shore
Lawmakers and Relevant Government Agencies Review Breakwater Installed on North Bali Shoreline by The Lovina

The Installation of temporary cement barriers by a local hotel on Bali’s north shore at Buleleng has prompted a visit by members of Commission III of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali).

Bali Post reports that on Friday, December 16, 2016, legislators inspected the cement and stone water breakwaters installed at The Lovina Resort.

The delegation called on the Agency for Shorelines and Rivers for Bali (BWS) to survey the temporary breakwater in front of the Resort to determine if the abrasion control measure undertaken by The Lovina and local citizens were, in fact, causing further damage to the shoreline.

Lawmakers have also asked for the cement and stone structures to be removed from the beachfront.

The onsite inspection to the beach was lead by the chief of Commission III, Ketut Kariasa Adnyana, accompanied by members of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng) and the chief of BWS for Bali, Putu Edi.

The delegation met with the Hotel’s management who explained the barriers were installed to reduce wave damage to the shoreline.

The Secretary of Commission III, Kariasa Adnyana, acknowledged the reasoning of the hotel and villages in trying to create a breakwater, but said their actions were one-sided and were possibly resulting in more severe erosion in the areas to either side of the recently installed breakwater.

BWS-Bali promised that they would begin an immediate assessment to determine what additional damage to the shoreline might be linked to the new breakwater and help find the best means to minimize shoreline destruction. If the breakwater is causing damage to other parts of the north Bali shoreline, BWS vowed they would order its removal.

Bali Airport: Online Transport Not Welcome
Angkasa Pura Vows to Hand Over to Police Online Transport Operators Found with Passengers at Airport

Angkasa Pura I – the management authority for Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport is threatening to take stern action against any online transportation operator that attempt to pick up or drop passengers Bali’s sole airport.

Telling NusaBali that the prohibition against online taxi operators has been in place since August 2016, the general manager of Angkasa Pura I (API), Rai Yunus Suprayogi, said illegal online taxi operators would be handed over the police, if caught operating at the airport.

API said signs and banners offering online transportation services from operators such as Uber, GrabCar, GoCar and others online transport operators have all been removed from airport premises.

The crackdown on online transport operators is based on a formal instruction issued by Governor Pastika outlawing online taxi operations in Bali.

Yunus said that while it is difficult to detect and catch online taxi operators at the Airport, it remained his desire to support the local Tuban-based taxi operations that have held a long-standing monopoly on airport transport services.

The Anti-monopoly law No, 5 of 1999 specifically prohibits restrictive trade practices that deny consumers the widest possible choice in access to products and services.

Yunus called on existing taxi operators not to take the law into their own hands if they discover illegal online taxis operating at the airport and turn over violators to the police.

Gator – Aide?
Conservation Officials Trying to Catch Crocodiles Spotted on banks of South Denpasar River

Officers from Bali’s Conservation Department (BKSDA) are engaged in a hunt for crocodiles believed to be roaming the protected mangrove forests at Suwung, just meters from Bali’s busiest roadway of the Ngurah Rai Bypass.

Beritabali.com says BKSDA officials are concerned that the reptiles pose a danger to fishermen, local residents and tourists who will visit the mangrove reserve. Because of this, the officials have installed baited traps in an effort to catch the crocodile.

Based on sightings and photos, officials say the crocodiles are still relatively small at around 1.2 meters long and living near the Rangda River at Suwung, not far from the massive TPA Suwung rubbish dump.

A BSKDA official said he has no idea where the crocodiles came from, perhaps former pets irresponsibly released into the area by their owner. Officials became aware of the crocodile's presence based on reports from local fishermen who often wade in the mangrove’s waters.

Officials continue to hunt the animals, concerned that they will grow larger over time and become even more dangerous to local fishermen.
