Rewarding Terrorists Who Cooperate
Head of Counter-Terrorism Body Justifies Sentence Commutation of Bali Bomber Ali Imron

The head of the Counter-Terrorism Coordination Body (BNPT), Ansyaad Mbai, has denied that his agency has been lobbying for a pardon of behalf of condemned Bali bomber Ali Imron, but, instead, seeking only that his outstanding death sentence be converted to life imprisonment.

As quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Mba said on Thursday, March 21, 2013: “A sense of appreciation for Ali Imron predates the establishment of the BNPT which was formed in 2010, because the file was (then) already complete. All that remained was for the BNPT to do was to finalize the file and forward it.”

At the same time the BNPT strove to distance himself from the process, saying his agency’s actions do not represent support for terrorists, but only an acknowledgement of the assistance given by Ali Imrom who has been cooperative in helping law enforcement officials uncover terrorist networks in Indonesia.

“If terrorists have been arrested, that is because we were helped by Ali Imron who helped identify existing terrorist networks,“ he explained.

Mba said that the service and assistance of Ali Imron should be rewarded, adding: “He was sentenced to death and has asked that his sentenced be commuted to life in prison. We are prepared to support this change in punishment.”

The BNPT chief pointed out that the Minister of Justice and Human Rights is also supporting the commutation of sentence from the death penalty to life in prison.

Ali Imron who played an active part in the planning of the 2002 Bali Bombing, has cooperated with police in unraveling that crime and the terrorist networks operating in Indonesia. He has also repeatedly offered apologies, asking forgiveness from the victims of terrorism in Indonesia.

When asked about the risk of terrorist acts in East Java, Mba admitted that every province of Indonesia has a potential for terrorist, but the risk in East Java is fairly remote, because the religious beliefs of people in that province are relatively moderate.

He said his agency was supportive of the introduction of moderate religious teachings now being included in the curriculum and in the rewriting of religious teaching materials in East Java.

He explained that through March 2013, law enforcement official had arrested 850 terrorists, 60 of whom were killed in a process that also cost the lives of 30 policemen.

Defending both the work and strategies of his agency, Mba said:
“There have been 790 terrorists that we have captured alive and we have treated them well. The children of terrorists or suspected terrorists have been given assistance.”

Because of giving priority to a humanistic approach, he insisted, the government has been able to cultivate a more moderate understanding of religious belief within the community.

Ill-Mannered Visitors
Kuta Youth Complain that Poor Quality and Badly Behaving Foreign Visitors Cheapening Baliís Reputation as a Tourism destination

Youth representing 13 communities (banjar) in Kuta, Bali are complaining that the image of Kuta as a tourism destination has been “cheapened” by the wide variety, diverse quality and extreme behavior of that areas international visitors.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, I Gede Ary Astina, representing the Youth of the Traditional Village of Kuta (Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta), said, “There is the indication that the quality of tourists coming to Kuta is declining as seen from the behavior.”

“The are many embarrassing cases of poor behavior by tourists of low quality. There are tourist shooting at taxis, fugitives from Interpol escaping to Bali, tourist stabbing people with knives and even a case of tourists having sex on temple grounds,” he added.

He complained that such incidents are depicting Kuta and Bali in the international media as a place where tourist visitors are free to do whatever they like when on holiday.

The Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta is urging the local government to become more selective and filter the tourists allowed to visit Kuta.

Offering a further, ominous warning, Astina said he feared that the tourist image of Kuta was being downtrodden and that activities by visitors have the potential of creating racial unrest.

At the same time, Pemuda Desa Adat Kuta is calling on the government to educate local citizens to impose standards of behavior for visitors and not become the “slaves of tourism.”

Concluding, Astina said: “It needs to be underlined that the tourists need Bali and Bali does not need to be subservient to visitors. By preserving the dignity of the Balinese, respect and appreciation (from the tourist) will be reaped from tourist visitors. The mentality of slavery must be eliminated.”


Bali as a Party Venue
Ruling Democratic Party to Hold its National Convention in Sanur, Bali March 30-31, 2013

Made Mudarta, the chairman of the Bali chapter of Indonesian Democratic Part (Partai Demokrat), has confirmed that the national convention of his party will be held at the Hotel Inna Grand Bali Beach Sanur, March 30-31, 2013.

Quoted in Beritabali.com on Thursday, March 21, 2013: Mudarta said: “It’s confirmed. Both the time and place are fixed.

According to the chairman of the Democratic Party in Bali, the convention will see 571 senior party cadre select and, if acclimation is not possible, vote for the next chairman.

“We hope that the convention will reach consensus and voting will be used as a final alternative,” said Mudarta.

The Democratic Party is the party of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The troubled Democratic Party recently saw the resignation of Anas Urbaningrum as its chairman after his name became embroiled in a major corruption case now under review.

The Party will determine who will chair the party through the next round of presidential elections set to take place in Indonesia in 2015.


Educating the Public on Tourism
Leading Indonesian Educator Claims Indonesian Tourism is Uncoordinated due to a General Lack of Understanding of How the Tourism Industry Works

Tourism in Indonesia was likened to a “sound system without a operator” by the chairman of the Ambarrukmo Tourism Academy (Stipram), Suhendroyono, during commencement exercises held in Yogyakarta, Central Java, on Wednesday, March 20, 2013.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Suhendroyono said that tourism in Indonesia has a huge potential to provide a benefit to the people.

The failure of tourism to improve the welfare of the people, according to Suhendroyono, is because the industry leaders do not understand the tourism marketplace; have failed to analyze tourism’s potential; and, in the end, failed to coordinate efforts between different sectors.

“Indonesia tourism has great potential, but because there is little understanding on how to develop that potential, we continue to fail. By thoroughly understanding tourism- the government, investors, business people and the public can then analyze the true potential of tourism and package tourism products to their best potential.” Suhendroyono explained.

To enhance the public’s understanding of tourism, Suhendroyono suggests that tourism studies should form part of the academic curriculum starting from grade school.

If the science of tourism is taught from the earliest levels, he argues, people will understand how tourism works and all parties will be able to work together to explore the industries potential and make Indonesian internationally competitive with other destinations.

“What’s more,” he said, “the science of tourism always present positive aspects of society such as culture, tradition, peace, morality and environmentalism. Because of this, its not only a raised understanding of tourism that will result through education, but also character building.”

Call Ď110í
Bali Police Establish Ď110í Call Center to Report Crime and Accidents

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) in cooperation with the Indonesian Police have created a new “110 Call Center” to assist the public in reporting crime.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the General Manager of Telkom for South Bali, I Ketut Budi Utama, told the press, “through the help of information technology reports received from the public can be immediately actioned by the police.

The state-of-the-art call center embraces special computer applications, a database, recording and ease-of-access for all operators. Simply by dialing “110” the public can report accidents, criminal activities and leads to the police for immediate follow-up.

Some 60 officers from the Central Police service Center (SPKT) in Bali have undergone training in connection with the new “110” contact center.

Since January of 2013, the “112” quick response number has been replaced by the Bali police with the new “110” number.


Bali Winning the War on Rabies
Fourth Phases of Mass Rabies Vaccination Program in Bali to Take Place April-June 2013

New cases of rabies in Bali continue to decline, but it is still too early to declare the island “rabies free.” The Island’s Livestock and Animal Health Department has introduced its 4th mass vaccination campaign that will take place between the months of April and June 2013.

As reported by Seputarbali.com, Putu Sumantra, head of the Provincial Livestock and Animal Health Department, said on Wednesday, March 20, 2013: “The fourth stage of mass vaccination will begin in April. This is part of our effort to reduce the number of rabies cases.”

He explained how the mass vaccination program was first commenced in 2010 and the program is now entering its fourth year. The fourth phase of vaccinations will cover all 9 Bali regencies and all metropolitan areas.

“In all of Bali we estimate there are 325,000 dogs that we will seek to vaccinate in the fourth phase of the program. Hopefully, all these dogs can be vaccinated. During the third phase of vaccinations we injected 315,000 dogs, said Sumantra.

Sumantra claims the ongoing program has recorded success by lowering the number of rabies cases. In 2012 there were 80 reported cases of rabies while through the third month of 2013 only 5 cases have been reported.

The 5 cases occurred in Bangli, Ginayar, Jembrana and Karangasem and were immediately treated by health officials.

The coming phase in vaccination, according to Sumantra, will take place on a door-to-door basis persuading people to allow the dogs living among them to be treated. We are asking people to tie their dogs up during the mass vaccination campaign to assist the process.


Lion Air Places US$24 Bn Order with Airbus

The Dangers of Oz-mosis
Record Number of West Australian Visitors to Bali Return Home with Infectious Disease. Caution and Prevention Advised.

The West Australian warns that there has been a “dramatic increase” in cases of infectious disease among West Australians returning from holidays in Bali.
Health authorities say increased travel levels to Bali have also resulted in increased cases of dengue fever and salmonella gastroenteritis.

Australian health officers are working to educate Australian travelers about health risks and preventative steps that should be taken to remain healthy.

The West Australian reports that in 2012 some 2,650 cases of infectious disease were acquired by West Australians traveling overseas. Government officials also say that 41% of those who became ill did so in Indonesia, mostly in Bali.

The highest number of disease reports from Indonesia were for dengue fever (415 notifications) representing 80% of all dengue cases found in Western Australia.

Other diseases caught in Bali in 2012, according to Western Australian officials, were salmonella gastroenteritis (263 cases), campylobacter gastroenteritis (157 cases), Chlamydia (95 cases) and gonorrhea (37 cases).

Other diseases, but with lower reporting rates if infection include hepatitis A, HIV, legionnaires’ disease, malaria, typhus and typhoid fever.

157 West Australian also needed rabies prophylaxis in 2012 after visiting Bali in 2012.


Tax Relief for Baliís Farmers
Bali Weighing Tax Exemptions for Farming Lands and Subsidies for Fertilizers and Seeds

The provincial government of Bali is studying plans to provide financial subsidies to farmers in the form of reduced tax rates. Being considered is a scheme in which farmers who retain the agricultural use of rice fields and other farming lands would receive tax relief.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Governor Made Mangku Pastika recently told a group of tourism professionals that how subsidies for farmers would be applied was still being discussed. In addition to tax relief, said Pastika, the province is also looking at additional subsidies for fertilizers and seeds.

“Providing they plant rice, the tax will be paid by the government. The taxes are still going to be paid, but the farmers won’t pay. it will be paid for them. Later (we’ll also pay) for fertilizer, seeds,” explained the governor.

The governor said that subsidies for farmers would be taken from the island’s tourism income, in order to repay the contribution made by agriculture to the tourism industry. Pastika said tourism’s debt to agriculture is even greater now following the recognition of Bali’s terraced rice fields (subak) as part of the world’s cultural heritage by UNESCO.


Prices to be Fixed for Bali Hotels?
Bali Government Considers Controversial Plan to Standardize Hotel Room Rates as Step to Limit Price Wars and Reduce Overbuilding

Beritabali.com reports that Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika is considering measures to try to set standard rates for hotel rooms in Bali to help avert an all-out price war caused by current overbuilding of accommodation.

Pastika told the press that a policy on the standardization of hotel rooms will form part of a regulation to be issued by either the governor’s office (pergub) or a regional government (perda). He added that the price of a hotel room will depend on the respective hotel's status as a melati-class, one star, two star, three star, four star or five star hotel.

Explaining how the standardization of pricing might be implemented, Pastika said: “If a hotel sells itself for US$70 but our standard price is US$200 – for instance the pricing for five-star hotels is US$200 or US$300 a night – the Hotel and Restaurant Tax (PHR) of 10% would apply to the US$300 figure, not US$70. This would apply even though in fact the room was sold for US$70. I think this is one way to stop the uncontrolled building of new hotels.”

Pastika said any plans for the standardization of hotel room rates in Bali awaits the input and recommendations from the Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association. The governor said plans to standardize pricing for Bali hotel rooms could be synchronized with the long-awaited on-line payment and reporting of hotel and restaurant taxes.

The on-line PHR tax payment system is intended to minimize the widespread tax avoidance and corruption now rife in Bali in assessing PHR tax bills.


 


Four Hands Better than Two
Mozaic Beach Club to Feature Culinary Duet by Justin North and James Ephraim April 5-7, 2013

Mozaic Beach Club in Seminyak, Bali will be the site of a culinary collaboration between that popular venue’s king of the range - Chef James Ephraim and visiting Sydney, Australia Chef Justin North.

North’s debut in Bali will commence with a four-hand dinner prepared by the two chefs on Friday, April 5, 2013 in the lavish seaside dining room of the Mozaic Beach Club. Over the ensuing weekend from April 5-7, 2013, Ephraim and North will combine forces presenting tapas lunch and dinner menus.

Justin North

Justin North was born in New Zealand in 1975, commencing his cooking career at the tender age of 15 when he left home in Blenheim for Wellington. At the age of 18 he won his first of many awards when he was named New Zealand’s Apprentice Chef of the Year. In the same year he claimed the title of Commis Chef of the Nation at the Culinary Olympics.

Justin’s next move brought him to Sydney to work at Gekko Restaurant at the famed Park Lane Hotel. He then joined Liam Tomlin and Dietmar Sawyere at the acclaimed Brassiere Cassis as Chef de Partie.

A very successful year followed, during which any spare time was spent making the contacts and applications necessary to procure a place in the kitchen of one of Europe’s greatest chefs, Raymond Blanc. Justin’s rise within the huge kitchens of Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons was meteoric. At 22 he was Mr Blanc’s youngest-ever 2nd Sous Chef and voted employee of the year from among a staff of almost 200.

While in Europe, Justin worked on chef’s holidays at two of Paris’s greatest restaurants, the 3 Michelin Starred Pierre Gagnaire and Guy Savoy.
Later, back home in the Southern Hemisphere, Justin re-joined Liam Tomlin in Sydney as Sous Chef at Banc Restaurant. At this time, Justin joined a handful of world-renowned chefs at the MasterCard Cape Gourmet Festival in South Africa where he appeared on the Carlton Food Network heading cooking classes and demonstrations.

In November 2001, Justin left Banc to open his own restaurant Bécasse in Surry Hills with his wife Georgia North.

With the recent closing of Bécasse, Justin now consults and travels the world on culinary adventures, while still continuing a series of television appearances as one of Australia’s top chefs.

“It’s an honor to have Justin visiting us at the Mozaic Beach Club, but I also am thrilled to have this time with him in the kitchen. I suspect we will have a fantastic time creating dishes together and feeding off each other’s passion. We will have a blast, and clients will taste this excitement in our dishes.” Says Ephraim.

Yes, Governor
A Chronology of Baliís Governors from 1950 to the Present

With Bali’s next governor’s race set to take place island-wide on May 15, 2013, the next man to sit as the island’s chief executive, depending on the results of that poll, will be either the 10th or 9th person to hold that office, depending on whether or not incumbent Made Mangku Pastika is re-elected.

With information provided by Beritabali.com and other sources, here’s the chronology of Bali’s governors dating from the island’s official recognition as a province of Bali in 1950.

Anak Agung Bagus Sutedja – He served as the first period as governor from 1950-1958, returning for a second term 1958-1965.

In addition to being the first governor of the Provice, Sutedja who was a son of the last King of Jembrana (Anak Agung Bagus Negara). He was appointed governor by Indonesia’s first president Sukarno. Sutedja’s term of office came to an end a few months after the failed Gestapu Coup of September 1965.

As an interesting footnote, Sutedja disappeared mysteriously on July 29, 1966 while in Jakarta, believed to have been the victim of a political kidnapping.

I Gusti Bagus Oka – Served a short one-year interim term as Bali's second governor from 1958-1959.

I Gusti Putu Martha – Served from 1965-1967 as Bali’s fourth governor

Soekarmen – Bali’s fifth governor from 1967-1978. Soekarmen was a retired Brigadier General and the first non-Balinese and non-Hindu to serve as governor, working two successive terms of office.

Prior to becoming Bali’s governor, Soekarman served as the military commander at the Denpasar Military Command.

Professor Dr. Ida Bagus Mantra – A much loved very popular governor, Mantra labored tirelessly on behalf of the Balinese people and their culture, Mantra is credited with rules requiring Balinese architectural style in building projects and with the creation of the Bali Arts Festival.

Mantra served as Bali’s sixth governor for two terms from 1978 – 1988, and as Indonesia’s Ambassador to India before his death in 1995.

Professor Dr. Ida Bagoes Oka – Bali’s seventh governor from 1988-1993. Oka also served as Minister of Population and Head of the National Family Planning Board during the presidency of Jusuf Habibie.

In 2001 Oka was found guilty of corruption while in office, fined Rp. 2.4 billion and sentenced to one year in prison.

Drs. Dewa Made Beratha  – the eighth governor of Bali served two consecutive terms from 1998 - 2008.

I Made Mangku Pastika was Bali’s first chief executive elected by popular vote in 2008. He is currently seeking a second term in the election to be held May 15, 2013.

Pastika retired as a Brigadier General in the Indonesian Police Force and was instrumental in capturing the Bali Bombers who killed 202 people in Bali nightspots in 2003, He was honored by TIME Magazine (Asia) as a “Man of the Year” in 2002.

Pastika speaks six languages and graduated at the top of his class at the National Police Academy in 1974.

Pastika is the ninth person to serve as Governor of Bali
 


Before the Fins are Finished
Bali Urged to Pass Laws to Save Sharks from Extinction in Islandís Surrounding Waters

The Jakarta Post reports that Conservation International (CI) is urging the government of Bali to implement regulations that would make Bali a sanctuary for sharks living in its surrounding waters.

A marine survey performed in 2011 showed a dramatic depletion in shark populations, with only 3 sharks counted in 350 hours of survey diving.

Ketut Putra, the CI country executive director also said evidence exists of a wholesale slaughter of pregnant thresher sharks in the waters between Padang Bai and Nusa Dua.

Putra added: “The severe depletion of sharks in Bali’s waters is an urgent marine conservation management issue due to the important role sharks play in keeping the ocean ecosystems healthy. We urge the Bali government to implement legislation to ban shark fishing and to create a shark sanctuary.”

CI is also calling for manta rays to be included due to the high value of manta ray tourism for divers and snorkelers at Nusa Penida.

Putra continued: “The creation of a Bali shark sanctuary would be well received by the international community at a time when Bali is increasingly criticized for its environmental problems. Such a move will also keep Bali in good stead with its competitors in marine tourism, as many of them, such as the Maldives, Bahamas, Palau and Guam, have recently declared shark sanctuaries.”



The creation of a sharks’ sanctuary in Bali would follow the example set by the administration in Raja Ampat (Papua) that declared its 4 million hectares of marine waters off limits to shark harvesting. That same provincial ruling extends protection to manta rays, dugongs, whales, turtles, dolphins and ornamental fish species.



Indonesia is the world’s biggest shark exporter, supplying 15% of the world shark fin supply.


Chinese to Keep Bali on Track?
Chinese Railway Officials Exploring Possible investment in Comprehensive Rail System for Bali

The Jakarta Post reports that the China Railway Corporation, who operate the national railway system for Mainland China, has expressed an interest in investing in a monorail system that would connect all nine regencies of Bali.

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika related: “China Railway came to me several months ago, requesting information related to the plan to build a monorail.”

The governor warned that the study by the Chinese is still in the pre-feasibility phase to determine if the proposed rail system would be economically viable.

The governor said he hoped the Chinese would decide to invest in a Bali monorail system as a means to connect all corners of the island and more evenly distribute the benefits of tourism to all regions of the island.

As earlier study conducted by the State Railway Company of Indonesia (PT KAI) concluded technically and financially too challenging due to high land acquisition costs.

The idea of a Bali rail system enjoys widespread support in many quarters as an environmentally positive approach to solving Bali’s growing problem of traffic congestion.

Bali Transport Operators Seek a Hike in Rates
Pawiba Calls for Review of Tourism Transport Prices in Bali Once Every Two Years

The Jakarta Post (Bali Daily) reports that the Bali’s Tourist Transportation Association (Pawiba) is seeking to increase the tariff for tourism transport in Bali from levels that have remained largely static since 2005.

Pawiba’s chairman, Bagus Soediana, said: 

“Eight years have passed, but the tariff has never been changed, while the price of fuel, spare parts, the minimum regional wage and other production factors have increased.”

Soediana contends that the tariff for tourism transport should be reviewed once every two years, adding: “Lately, price fluctuations have been quite high. Maintenance expenses are not cheap, while we need to renew our fleet at least every five years.”

Pawiba has 130 members – all comprised of companies operating tourist transport in Bali responsible for a fleet of 1,000 buses and 5,000 mini-vans.

Fright at the Museum
Museum Bali Sufferer Strom Damage as Newly Installed Roof Collapses

Less than one year after its renovation, the Bali Museum in downtown Denpasar has lost large sections of its roof due to high winds and rains that affected the building in the third week of March 2013.

Seputarbali.com reports that workers from the contractors who renovated the museum are now busily cleaning up debris from the fallen roof.

Anak Agung Gede Geriya of the Provincial Culture Office said, “We cleaned up the area immediately after it occurred because the renovation work is still in the warranty period meaning that the contractor must be responsible for all damage."

The damage to the museum’s roof did not cause any injuries to workers or visitors to the Museum.

The Bali Museum was built in 1910 and is comprised of a number of buildings erected in a traditional Balinese architectural style with each given names reflecting various regions of Bali.

A massive repair and renovation program on the Museum was undertaken in 2012 at a cost of hundreds of million of rupiah that included the roof of the Karangasem Pavilion damaged by weather last week.

Geriya suspects that undersizedl ceiling ribs recently installed on the roof were insufficiently strong to support new roofing and insulation.

Declining Visitors

In 2010 a total of 38,565 visited the museum, 24,592 of which were domestic visitors and 13,973 foreigners.

The following year, 2011, visitors declined to 35,055 comprised of 20,482 domestic tourists and 14,573 foreigners.

The total visitors to the Museum in 2012 declined once again with 28,226 people consisting of 14,180 domestic tourists and 13,246 foreign nationals.

A Closed Shop
Village Officials Beseeching Joger to Reopen its Baturiti, Bali Shop

As reported by Balidiscovery.com, the Joger “Factory of Word” outlet in Baturiti has closed its doors, refusing requests for a 100% increase in “donation” paid to the local banjar or community association. [See: At a Loss for Words] .

In a follow-up report from DenPost, it now appears that the closure of the popular souvenir shop is having widespread economic effects as visitors to the area and surrounding shops have dropped dramatically following the shops closure and shrouding of its roadside sign by the Joger's owner.

J
oger closed when the Banjar Adat Luwes asked a monthly cash contribution of Rp. 1.5 million (US$150) – a figure twice the amount paid in the past.

In an effort to reopen a dialogue with Joger, the banjar has returned the shop’s contribution paid for January and February 2013 and is labeling the entire incident a misunderstanding.

The village secretary for Banjar Adat Luwes, I Ketut Landra, told DenPost that the people of the village had never called for the closure of the Joger location, acknowledging, at the same time, the significant contribution made by the company to the local economy, including jobs for residents of the area.

Speaking on behalf of the village, Landra said: “There is still the opportunity for a consensus to be achieved. We hope Joger will reopen in Luwus (Baturiti) and continue to maintain good relations with the community.”

A similar sentiment was expressed by Mudiana, a local shopkeeper working  across the road from Joger. Mudiana said: “It’s just been two days since Joger closed and it feels so quiet, and the effect on other shops is the same. For this reason, we are writing to Joger urging them to reopen their location. The effect is being felt by local workers.”

Separately, Joger has revealed a long list of "donations" that they have been compelled to pay linked to routine renewal of licenses and permits for their business. In the past Joger has made substantial contributions to schools near the Baturiti shop.
