Bali Nineís Myuran Sukumaran Files Formal Request for Presidential Remission of Death Sentence

Drug smuggler Myuran Sukumaran, the man depicted by the media as “the enforcer” among the infamous  “Bali Nine,” has formally asked for a remission of his death sentence from Indonesia’s president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The Denpasar District Court sentenced Sukumaran to death before a firing squad on February 14, 2006 after being found guilty of possession, with three others, of heroin in a Kuta hotel room.

Sukurmaran and Andrew Chan were depicted by prosecutors on the co-ringleaders in smuggling drugs from Bali to Australia.

The “Bali Nine” is the name given to nine Australians arrested in connection with the efforts to smuggle 8.2 kilograms of heroin via Bali’s airport in 2005. Five members of the conspiracy were arrested at Bali’s airport while 4 associates were arrested later in Kuta.

Chan has filed his petition for remission of the death sentence with the President last month.

Sukarman and Chan are the last two of the “Bali Nine” still under sentence of death. The remaining seven members are in prison, facing long prison sentences, including life imprisonment.

You Make Me Feel Brand New
A Day of Renewal as The Westin Nusa Dua Says ďHappy BirthdayĒ to the Resortís Temple

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali celebrated the “odalan” of the hotel’s temple on Tuesday, June 3, 2012. All temples in Bali celebrate their anniversary or “odalan” during one of the full moons occurring during the course of a year.

Special occasions celebrated with colorful offerings, prayer, music and dance – an odalan is an opportunity to make offerings to the Gods and express gratitude for the blessings that have been bestowed during the past 12 months.

In keeping with Balinese Hindu religious practice, the Westin’s celebration included a purification ritual to cleanse the temple compound by burning sandalwood, blessings administered with holy water and the spilling of sacrificial blood. Elaborate offerings of fruit and flowers filled the temple, while a high-caste priest led the ceremony through the recitation of ancient mantras delivered in arcane Balinese.

The temples “birthday” also included cultural entertainment with traditional Balinese dance and music. Resort associates participated in a lively procession carrying all the sacred temple objects to the sea for purification with salt water. The final stage of the ceremony involves communal prayer seeking peace and posterity for the year ahead.

The Managing Director of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Bipan Kapur, donned traditional Balinese dress and joined his team for the temple celebration. “The resort’s annual temple ceremony is considered to be one of the most important days on our in-house calendar of events. It was indeed a great honor for me to celebrate this religious occasion with my associates. The fact that the Balinese still manage to balance their social and religious obligations even in the work place is truly inspiring. Even our guests were fascinated with the proceedings of this culturally enriching experience. It was a time to renew the mind for everyone involved,” said Kapur.

The road project commenced in March 2012 with an estimated cost of Rp. 2.4 trillion (US$258 million) and must be completed the by April 25, 2013.

30% of the total cost of the road project is being financed from cash reserves of the consortium members and 70% via a loan syndication arranged via Bank Mandiri, BRI, BNI, BCA, BTN and BPD Bali.

Quoted by Kompas.com, the director of PT Jasamarga Bali Toll (JBT), Akhmad Tito Karim, said” “We are using land transportation and sea transportation to bring construction materials. What’s more, cement used is being prepared in several cities in Java.”

Judge, Ye Not
Denpasar District Court Judge Dismissed by Supreme Court for Ethical Improprieties

A Judge sitting at the Denpasar District Court, Putu Suika (64), has been fired from his position on the bench after being proven to have attended a karaoke bar in the company of a party involved in an ongoing trial over which he presided.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the spokesman for the Denpasar District Court, Amzer Simanjuntak, explained that the case prompting Suika’s dismissal took place in 2010. 

A Supreme Court Assembly of Honor (Majelis Kerhormatan), on which 7 senior jurists sat, heard the case against Judge Putu Suika at the Supreme Court Building in Jakarta. After hearing the evidence, the tribunal issued orders “honorably” dismissing the jurist and ending Suika’s judicial career.

The judges determined that Putu Suika was proven to have received “karaoke facilities” from those involved in a case before him. The panel of judges also ruled that Suika was proven to have had been involved in forbidden communication with a party to a trial he was actively hearing.

Suika’s dismissal is the first instance of a sitting judge being fired while sitting on the bench of the Denpasar District Court.

Some elements in Denpasar are depicting the firing of Judge Putu Suika as unfair, making the jurist into an ornamental “black sheep” for the protection of his superior in the court.

One person disparaging the firing is lawyer Muhammad Rifan. Rifan, a prominent Bali lawyer who was the attorney for Jacque Roc who was once involved in a case heard by Suika. Rifan was the lawyer cited by the High Court judges as attending a karaoke bar with Suika in 2011.

“Judge Suika is only a black sheep, he is being victimized,” said Rifan, reacting to the decision that terminated the judge’s employment.

Rifan, who feels that his name has been dragged into the case, is seeking to make public clarification. According to the Bali lawyer and quoted by Beritabali.com, his client (Jacque Roc) made a formal report when he heard that his case being heard before Judge Suika was being interfered in by Jhon Pieter, the chief of the Denpasar District Court at that time.

“At the time, Judge Suika admitted that he was under pressure from the chief of the Denpasar District Court in a case he was adjudicating. Judge Suika was threatened (by Pieter) that we would not be given (new) cases. Upon hearing this, my client was outraged and made a formal report to the Supreme Court,” explained Rifan,

When the complaint was handled by the Supreme Court and the Judicial Commission, the substance of the report detailing the improper interference of the Chief of the Denpasar Court was largely ignored with the inquiry shifting instead to ethical improprieties committed by Judge Suija.

“Don’t bury a judge who is innocent only because he went to a karaoke bar,” said Rifan. While Rifan admits that he did coincidentally encounter the judge at a Karaoke bar where he picked up the Judge's tab, he said his actions were simply an act of “eastern courtesy” and did not represent an ethical violation.


Baliís Clogged Arteries
Migration and New Vehicle Purchases Contribute to Baliís Traffic Woes

The growth in ownership of new cars in Bali averages 35 new cars every day.

According to Beritabali.com, the demand for more cars in Bali is a reflection of the growing economy and the number of new migrants settling on the island.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika said the growth in the number of cars in Bali is keeping pace with the increase in the ownership of motorcycles estimated to increase by 100 each day. The rapid and continual growth in motorcycles and cars in Bali is a significant factor contributing to Bali’s traffic congestion.

Said the governor: “Traffic congestion depends on many factors. First, there is the condition of the roads. Then there is the growing number of new vehicles. Third, there is road behavior. Because of all these things, we have to think of what new roadways we have to build, under passes or flyovers?”

Pastika said the new toll way connection Nusa Dua – Ngurah Rai Airport – Benoa represents one solution to traffic congestion in Bali’s south. The governor said the new toll way is expected to handle some 30,000 vehicles each day.


When Your Numberís Up
Baliís Governor Predicting 5 Million Foreign Tourists by 2015

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika is predicting that 5 million tourists will visit Bali by 2015.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the governor’s prediction is based on Bali’s improving infrastructure and the steady growth in arrivals.

According to Pastika, the increasing number of international conferences and international activities effectively provides free tourism promotion for Bali, such as the APEC conference and Miss World, both of which to be held in 2013. The governor also feels the tourism numbers to Bali will only grow if security is maintained and improves over the coming years.

“Whenever our political, security and social situation remains stabile and conducive, I am certain. In 2015 we can have 5 million tourists,” said Pastika.

The governor predicts that Bali will achieve 3 million foreign tourist arrivals in 2012.

Helping Balinese Women Deal with Cancer
Wife of Governor Salutes the Cancer-Fighting Dedication of Bali Pink Ribbon Project

The wife of Bali’s governor, Ayu Pastika, has issued praise and her support for the Bali Pink Ribbon project – a group of volunteers who raise funds and awareness in the battle against cancer.

As reported by Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post), “Ibu” Pastika said: 
“I truly appreciate the various activities that the Bali Pink Ribbon volunteers have done for this island and its people and I support their initiative to expand the movement’s coverage and program. I believe that we will be able to work together to create a bigger impact,”

Seeing the work of the Bali Pink Ribbon volunteers as complementing her husband’s work to improve public healthcare through the Bali Mandara Program, Ayu Pastika works tirelessly to provide health education to remote villages across the island.

The Bali Pink Ribbon program’s dedication to alleviating the incidence of breast cancer is seen by Ayu Pastika as filling a gap in public health care not yet addressed by the provincial health services.

The group of volunteers educates women on the dangers of cancer and the treatments and cures now available with early detection.

In the past, woman have feared what they saw as a “death sentence” of a cancer diagnosis by refusing medical treatment until their cancer were in an advanced and largely untreatable stage of development.

Teaching woman about self-examination for breast cancer can detect the illness at an early stage when treatment is less expensive and more effective.

Based on figures from the American National Cancer Database, patient treated in stage 0 or stage 1 of breast cancer have survival rates of more than 83%. Meanwhile, patients at stage 4 of cancer have only a 15% rate of survival.

Emphasizing the role volunteers, such a the Pink Ribbons Group play in Bali’s health care, Ayu Pastika said: 

“Women play an important role in developing the overall health of the community. Housewives, in particular, could teach critical aspects in maintaining health and preventing disease to their children. In fact, on this island, the mothers are still the primary caregivers for their sick children.”

The Missing Mozaic
Mozaic Beach Club opens on Batubelig Beach, Bali

Months in gestation, The Mozaic Beach Club is now open for business on Batubelig beach in Seminyak, Bali.

The fruit of the creative imagination of Bali’s culinary genius, Chef Chris Sales, this newest addition to the Mozaic Group, in keeping with its elegant beachside setting is ideal for drinks and poolside chill-out tapas, lunch on the deck or evenings of fine dining below the swaying tropical palms.

A large deck and poolside bar and lounge within walking distance of the W Retreat and Spa, the Mozaic Beach Club joins a growing list of chic, uber-hip dining and entertainment venues along Bali’s sunset coast.

Like the Ubud Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique, the new beachside Club incorporates Chris Salan’s culinary genius and savoir faire, combining great service and a team of unrivalled culinary expertise acquired over years of “the boss’s” careful tutelage. Whether in search of a relaxed day of poolside tapas, a lunch on the deck or refined evening dining – Mozaic’s attention to detail, great food and professional service shine through in every instance.

Teaming with Chef Chris Salans in realizing the culinary vision of the Mozaic Beach Club is Chef James Ephraim. A native of England where he trained in the kitchens of the prestigious Grosvenor Hotel, Chef Ephraim eventually left his homeland honing his cooking skills in the South Pacific and Australia.

Embracing the philosophy of Chef Chris Salans in the use of Bali’s freshest ingredients, Chef Ephraim has played a central role in creating the Mozaic modern Balinese Cuisine presented at the famed Ubud Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique for the past four years.

For this new venture, Lotus Arts de Vivre joins the Salan and Ephraim in the design of the private dining room on the dining floor of the Mozaic Beach Club. Lotus Arts de Vivre and the von Bueren family, creators of the successful brand, live together in a cluster of traditional houses in a lush compound nestled in the heart of Bangkok. Their love affair with Bali and its crafts dates from years and Lotus Arts de Vivre brings the sensibility of its Asian fusion to the boutique at the Mozaic Beach Club, to the private dining room and to the dining room.

The Mozaic Beach Club redefines beachside elegance.
 


Flights of Fancy?
Rumors of an International Airport in North Bali Resurface

The Jakarta Post reports that PT Angkasa Pura – the State-owned company managing most Indonesian airports, have announced their intention to construct a major airport in North Bali to reduce the strain on the current strain on Ngurah Rai International Airport estimated to have handled 13 million passengers in 2011.

And, despite a major renovation program now underway at Bali’s sole airport, experts predict that Ngurah Rai will reach its maximum carrying capacity of 20 million passengers by 2015.

Bali's proposed international airport of the north would be designed to handle 40 million passengers.

Details of the proposed new airport, including its cost, remain sketchy, but are understood to include a location in the regency of Buleleng now dedicated to agricultural uses. Detailed plans have yet to be developed for the airport nor have the necessary approval for the airport been obtained from local government and the Department of Transportation.

Plans to build a large international airport in Bali’s north would also suggest that a supporting infrastructure of highways connecting the airport to the island’s south would also need to form an absolute part of such a development.


In the Navy
US Navy Destroyer USS Benfold Pays Four-Day Visit to Bali

The USS Benfold – an Arliegh Burke class guided missile destroyer of the U.S. Navy arrived in Bali’s port of Benoa on Thursday, July 12, 2012 for a four-day port call.

Captained by Commander Adrian J. Jansen, the USS Benfold sailed directly from San Diego, California to Bali with an intermediate fueling stop in Hawaii.

Captain Jansen told the press that Bali was the only Indonesian port scheduled for a visit by the ship with carries a complement of 281 officers and enlisted personnel.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Navy officials have confirmed that the USS Benfold will participate in joint training exercises at sea with two Indonesian vessels – KRI Hasan Basr and KRI Uling.

During its Bali visit the ship’s personnel will visit a number of local tourist objects, pay a courtesy call on the mayor of Denpasar and other local officials.

The ship has a length of 154 meters and weighs 9,000 tons. 

First launched in 1996, this is not the USS Benfold’s visit to Indonesia. The ship also played an important support role in Operation Unified Assistance the international relief efforts mounted following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.

During that assignment the ship provided refueling services for helicopters providing relief assistance, served as a base of operations of a team from the Naval Oceanographic Office undertaking safety of navigation surveys and delivered emergency humanitarian supplies to the Sultan Iskandar Muda Air Force Base in Banda Aceh


Leapiní Lizards
ProFauna Indonesian Asks People in Bali to Stop Consuming Water Monitor Meat

The conservation group ProFauna Indonesia has called on the people of Bali to end the common local practice of consuming meat harvested from the carcasses of water monitor lizards.

As reported by Beritabali.com, ProFauna is concerned that the high level of consumption of the large lizards threatens the sustainability of the species.

The coordinator in Bali for ProFauna, Jatmiko Wiwoho, said that the demand for the meat of water monitors in Bali is so substantial that hundreds of lizards are being shipped to Bali each month from other parts of Indonesia, such as East Java.

“Based on the results of investigation carried out by the friends of ProFauna in East Java, there are hundreds of water monitor lizards being shipped each month to Bali,” explained Jatmiko.

Jatmiko Wiwoho blames the popularity of water monitor lizard meat on the mistaken belief that consumption of this product will cure skin diseases and respiratory illnesses. In fact, according to the ProFauna official, there is know known medical benefit from consuming the lizard’s meat.


A Moratorium on Moratoria
Regional Autonomy in Bali Places Calls for Moratorium on New Hotels at an Impasse

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) cites the 1999 law on regional autonomy that bestowed sweeping planning powers on mayors and regents as preventing the implementation of a moratorium on new hotels in South Bali, announced by governor Made Mangku Pastika in 2011.

Concerned that Bali is overbuilding its accommodation sector, the provincial administrators have repeatedly implored for a halt on new projects; a call ignored and resisted by the Badung, Denpasar and Gianyar who insist new developments are needed to broaden the tax base.

Ida Bagus Kade Subhiksu, the head of the Bali Tourism Authority (Kadisparda), said that the regency of Badung earned Rp. 1.1 trillion (US$116.6 million) in tax revenues, 76.19% derived from tourism-related businesses. Because of the desire to grow this number further, regency officials are ignoring pleas from local businesses and residents that Bali is buckling under the strain of rampant over-development.

A price war is underway in Bali among hotels competing for guest staying for shorter periods and spending less. The local water board - PAM is refusing new customers, unable to provide sufficient fresh water supplies for its existing customer base. PLN – the company that provides electricity is under strain, with 50,000 Balinese families living without an electrical connection. Flooding has become a severe problem in many populated portions of the island due poor drainage and overbuilding on lands that once absorb tropical rains. And, Bali’s roadways are so congested, more than tripling travel times of just a few years ago.

Leading the recalcitrance of regency officials to implement the moratorium is Vice-regent of Badung, I Ketut Sudikerta, who claims that, according to reports “from foreign friend,” there are still holiday periods in which hotel rooms are difficult to find.

Governor Pastika’s call for a moratorium enjoys widespread support from Bali businesses and resident together with officials from the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) – all calling for a halt on new permits for hotels.

FAO Provide Vials of Anti-Rabies Vaccine Permitting Island-Wide Inoculation Program to Continue

Bali has received 130,000 additional vials of much-needed anti-rabies vaccines from the United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) that will allows the third phase of vaccination of dogs in Bali to proceed according to schedule.

Earlier, Bali experienced a shortage of needed vaccines due to administrative errors in the bidding process, requiring a rebidding procedure.

Beritabali.com quotes the head of the Bali Agriculture and Animal Health Department, Putu Sumantra, who confirmed that vaccines provided by the FAO will now make it possible to undertake the third phase of mass canine vaccination program according to plan.

Sumantra said that there is now more than enough vaccine to carry out mass vaccination. Another 375,000 vials of anti-rabies vaccine provided for in the State budget, but held up by the failed bidding process, will also arrive at the end of August.

According to data from Bali’s Agricultural and Animal Health Department, the first two phases of the mass vaccination program have inoculated 180,000 of a targeted 300,000 dogs.

Good News for Turtles
Commerce in Protected Turtles Declines in Bali as Rules for Religious Ritual Change

The conservation group ProFauna estimates that the trade in endangered turtles in Bali has declined by 80%.

In 1999 the trade in turtles was estimated at 30,000 reptiles.

According to Beritabali.com, the chairman of ProFauna Indonesia for Bali, Jatmiko Wiwoho, credits a decision by the Bali Hindu High Council (PHDI) that declared, as a matter of religious doctrine, the role played by turtle meat in Balinese religious practice could now be substituted by other meats.

Now the main pressure on Indonesia’s turtle population stems from the use of turtle shells for souvenir production. Jatmiko said that while turtles were being killed for souvenirs or for their eggs, the consumption of turtles is now low because of the PHDI rulings that have removed the need for turtle meat from ceremonial menus.

Jatmiko said the turtles sold in Bali mainly come from East Java, Flores and local capture in Bali.

Jatmiko added that a trade in turtles continues in Bali, but because that trade takes pace in the form of turtle meat it is increasingly difficult to detect.

Angry Citizens, Demanding Promised New Homes, Block Construction of New Coal Burning Power Plant in North Bali

Tens of protesting area residents blocked access roads leading to the Celukan Bawang Coal Fired Steam Power Plant in Bulelelng, north Bali.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the protest and demonstrations that saw wooden barriers erected to block the entrance to the power plant project was done to reflect the unhappiness of village residents with PT General Energy Bali (GEB) who, as developer of the infrastructure project, have failed to pay promised compensation to local landowners for land and buildings expropriated for the power plant

The protesting local residents forced workers on the power plant to lay down their tools. Moreover, the village chief of Celukan Bawang, Muhajir, was attacked by villagers who considered him incapable of playing a mediating role in the dispute.

Earlier Muhajir had announce that GEB would soon be finalizing problems surrounding the land expropriation, including the relocation of two mosques, one school, a cemetery and a number of local homes.

Separately, The Jakarta Post reported that the protest and blockage took place after five years of unsuccessful negotiations with GEB. Villagers are threatening that the blockage will continue until the promised monies and land certificates are presented to the landowners.

The contested power plant is 20 kilometers west of Singaraja, the capital of Buleleng regency. The value of the total project is put at US$742 million undertaken by GEB and a Chinese investor, China Huadian Engineering Corporation Ltd.

Bali Kite Festival Touched by Tragedy
Eight-Year-Old Boy Dies From Injuries Sustained at Bali Kite Festival

The three-day long Bali International Kite Festival on Padang Galak Beach in Denpasar claimed the life of an eight-year-old boy on its final day, Sunday, July 15, 2012.

The child, Made Ade Yudi Sastrawan, suffered traumatic head injuries when a fish-shaped kite (bebean), measuring 8x5 meters, struck him.

The boy, who was watching the kite competition in the company of his mother, was rushed to the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar where he died shortly after arriving at the emergency room.

Sastrawan, from Banjar Titih, Kapal, Mengwi, was a grade school student.

According to Radar Bali, police are considering if the boy’s death can be charged as a case of criminal negligence on the part of the team flying the kite. The boy was standing with a group watching the kite flying competition when the large kite crashed to the ground, striking several spectators.

Meanwhile, Gusti Putu Rai Andayana, the chairman of the Bali International Kite Festival, expressed his sympathy for the family of the child, saying this is the first time a fatality has occurred in connection with the annual event.

Andayana told the press that the incident, however, was purely an unfortunate accident without any intention to cause injury or death.

The organizers had provided a medical team from the Indonesian Red Cross to stand by at the event to handle any injuries that might occur.
