Inmates at Baliís Kerobokan Prison Auction Art to Improve Jailís Conditions

e raised over IDR 65,150,000 to help improve the lives of those living in the Kerobokan jail,” said Tricia Kim of The Rotary Club of Bali Canggu. Adding, “Thank you so much to those who came along and donated generously.”

Earlier this year, local Indonesian non-governmental agency (NGO), Indonesian Development of Education and Permaculture Foundation (IDEP) visited the prison to help develop a plan for the inmates’ garden and address drainage issues. The Rotary Club of Bali Canggu
then offered to host an auction of artworks by the inmates to help fund the prison garden project.

Gede Sugiarta of IDEP said: “We recently worked with the Bangli prison to create an organic garden and the inmates found it very therapeutic. They get exercise and they grow fresh vegetables they might not get otherwise.

“We’re really excited to work with Kerobokan prison and the inmates to build a garden and improve the environment at the same time,” Gede said.

Racing Against the Clock
Bali Governor Assures Island Major Infrastructure Projects Ready to Host October APEC Summit

Governor Made Mangku Pastika confirmed that the three “megaprojects” improving Bali’s infrastructure are “generally ready” to support the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit 2013 (APEC) getting underway in early October.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said on Tuesday, September 10, 2013: “The three megaprojects in support of the international events are now more than 90% (complete). These projects are being raced to completion and are now in the final finishing stage.”
 
The Governor enumerated the three infrastructure projects: The toll way connecting Benoa-Ngurah Rai Airport-Nusa Dua; the renovation of the Ngurah Rai Airport; and the underpass constructed at Simpang Dewa Ruci.

Pastika emphasized that the new toll road was totally completed, including the successful running of roadworthiness tests. All that remains is for President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to officially open and name the road.

This is also the case with the underpass that has, in fact, been in operation for several months.

“For the enlargement of the Ngurah Rai Airport the project is in the finishing stage. Generally all the infrastructure projects are ready. All that remains is for a few small touches now being raced to completion,” explained the Governor.

Governor Denies Rumors

Mangku Pastika refuted rumors that the delay in the inauguration of the toll road and airport is due to non-completion of these projects.

“The postponement of the inauguration is because President SBY has a busy agenda with more pressing matters demanding his attentions. it is not because of delays in the projects’ completion,” the Governor insisted.

Pastika added that the contractor working on the enlargement of the Ngurah Rai Airport continues to work around the clock, with completion expected before the end of September.

Meanwhile, hotels and meeting venues located at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) and the Bali International Convention Center (BICC) at The Westin, Nusa Dua are in readiness to receive the world’s leaders in October.


Last Ditch Effort
Hundred of Hectare of Farmland Now Idle Due to Lack of Water

Hundreds of hectares of rice fields at Subak Gomeng in the Banjar of Uma Anyar in the Klungkung Regency have dried up due to an extended dry season and the destruction of traditional irrigation canals.

The State News Agency Antara, quotes Nengah Karta (65), a farmer from the region who said: “Until now there has been no effort by the government, meaning our rice traces have become dried-up fields because the drought has continued for almost two years.”

The farmer blamed the once-productive, but now arid fields on a lack of rainfall and the destruction of traditional subak irrigation canals.

The terraces once home to verdant rice crops harvestable three times a year or other cash crops harvestable twice a year, now host only weeds and wild grasses.

Nengah Karta and other area farmers from Klungkung area imploring the Regency to repair broken irrigation ditches so farming can resume.

The head (Kelian) of the Gombeng Kelod Subak, Kadek Mustika, admits that efforts have been underway to repair irrigation ditches for the past two years. During this same period, farmers have sought to borrow water from neighboring subak associations.

In order to repair existing irrigation ditches the subak needs to acquire 10 are (1,000 square meters) of land at a cost of Rp. 50 million per are.

There also remains the need to create a new irrigation canal from the main canal to Gembong Kelod Subak of 110 meters in length.

Kadek Mustika said, “For this canal the work has commenced and will soon be completed.”

Rp.60 million (US$6,000) is being used to make the canals, paid from funds provided by the Agriculture Department of the Klungkung Regency.

A Deficit of Water
Housing Developers Accused of Making Promises Bali Water Board Canít Keep

The CEO of the Bali Provincial Water Board Tirta Mangutama Badung (PDAM), Made Yasa, has issued a warning to property developers in the Badung regency.

Yasa is telling developers: “Before promising water supplies from PDAM, it is best if developers first coordinate and determine iF the location for a residential project can receive water from PDAM or not.”

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Yasa said developers are advertising PDAM water supply in the marketing of their project without first ensuring water is, in fact, available. “Because of this,” he added, “in order to avoid this situation prior coordination is needed.”

Many areas of Badung regency, such as the Ungasan Peninsula, are being developed at a rapid pace with home owners compelled to buy water delivered by trucks to their otherwise high-and-dry homes.

Expendable Ex-workers
Bali Hyatt Workers Protest Termination of Employment

Representatives of the workers union at the Bali Hyatt Hotel are appealing to the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) protesting the termination of 353 employees as the iconic Sanur Beach property prepares to close its doors for two years of extensive renovation.

The Bali Hyatt Hotel Mandiri Workers Union’s chairman, Wayan Sudarsa, was quoted by the State News Agency Antara on Thursday, September 12, 2013, saying: “We have come to the members of the DPRD-Bali to state our aspirations and explain why 353 permanent employees (of the hotel) are restless because of their termination of employment by the hotel’s management.”

Wayan said the workers’ union received a letter sent by the Hotel’s management on August 26, 2013 advising that employees of the hotel will be terminated from their employment due to the coming period of renovation.

“Frankly, we are restless. This is because we will be fired. In fact, when the hotel was closed for almost a year during an earlier renovation there were no terminations,” explained Wayan.

If the decisions to fire staff who have worked for up to 25 years are carried out, Wayan said those affected would clearly be disappointed. He added that in terms of skills these employees are still able to work in a professional manner.

“We ask the members of the DPRD-Bali to help facilitate our desire that the owners of the hotel reconsider their decision and not merely refer to Law Number 13 of 2003,” said Wayan, mentioning the basic law governing manpower in Indonesia.

Two East Timor Nationals Sentenced to Prison for Kidnapping and Theft in Bali

Two Timor Leste nationals, Manuel Hedrique Soares and, his purported lover, Joaninha Maria Graciet Verdial Viera, have been sentenced to two-years and three-months imprisonment for kidnapping a French toddler in Bali in June 2013.

Presiding Judge Hadi Masruri handed down the verdict on Thursday, September 12, 2013. The punishment was less stringent than the
Three-years and six-months sought by State prosecutors.

The Judges also imposed a fine of Rp. 60 million on each of the defendants, failure of which to pay will add an additional 6 months to each of their sentences.

In rendering the verdict, Judge Masruri said it had been proven that the defendants had criminally kidnapped the child and also committed the theft of private property when they brought 2-year-old Logan Bertrand Nicholas Mattei from his hotel in Kuta and attempted to sell the child to an orphanage in North Bali.

The woman had met the boy’s father, Christophe Mattei, at the Bounty Discotheque in Kuta. Invited back to his hotel for the night, the man awoke to find his personal belongings, a sum of cash and his son all missing.

Police managed to track down the boy with the help of hotel staff and a CCTV camera installed at the property.

FPI Fails to March on Bali from East Java
Police Disperse More than 100 FPI Members at East Java Ferry Crossing to Bali to Disrupt Miss World Contest

Tempo.com and The Jakarta Globe report that around 100 members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) from East Java unsuccesfully attempted to cross from Java to Bali on the ferry crossing from Ketapang to Gilimanuk, on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

The protestors were intent on disrupting the Miss World Competition being held at Nusa Dua, Bali.

The 100 or so FPI members held prayers on Saturday afternoon in front of Stasiun Banyuwangi Baru and then marched to the ferry crossing at the port of Ketapang. The port's location is around 100 meters from the station.

Before entering the area of the port, the FPI members were confronted by an estimated one thousand members of the Police Mobile Brigade led by a phalanx of policewomen blocking FPI's progress towards the waiting ferries. The FPI demonstrators unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate their passage with the police.

East Java police told the group to disperse because they did not hold the required protest permit.

In speeches delivered by the local coordinator of the FPI, Sasmito, proclaimed a desire for "sacred struggle" or "jihad" aimed at disrupting the Miss World Contest being held in Bali.

In his speech before the FPI crowd, Sasmito asked: "Are you ready to die? Are you ready to sweep Bali clean from evil?"

Confronting an unrelenting blockade of police, the protestors eventually decided to cancel their plans to enter Bali, boarded waiting buses and cars, and returned to their homes.

Bali’s Udayana University will play host to the 10th World Education Congress, September 23-24, 2013.

The State News Agency Antara,
reports that the meeting will convene private universities from around the world.

The rector of Udayana University, Professor Dr. I Ketut Suastika, welcomed the coming conference that will discuss the educational issues facing private institutions of higher education organized under the general theme of “teaching to build peace.”

Bali will be the first Asian destination to host the prestigious congress that was originally scheduled to be held in Argentina, but eventually switched to Bali.

Suastika explained that the meeting was moved to Bali because of the Island’s reputation as a destination for major international conferences and the fact that Bali is also home to a number of private universities.

A total of 130 delegates from 17 countries are expected to attend.

The conference is operated by the World Confederation of Private Education (COMEP) and was first convened in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1990.

COMEP promotes the universal right to education and pluralism through education and free cultural expression.

Bali Airport Traders Threaten Mass Demonstrations if their Future Fate is Not Resolved Before the End of September 2013

Hundreds of members from the Airport Traders Association (P2B) continued their protests on Friday, September 13, 2013, in front of the office of Bali’s governor, repeating their demand for a clarification on where they will be allowed to trade in the revamped Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Kompas.com reports that the group of 121 traders who comprise the membership of P2B are growing increasingly frustrated with the Bali airport’s management's refusal or inability to finalize earlier promises to accommodate the aspirations of the airport traders. “We have already been told to move, but until this moment we don't know to where,” complained Wayan Sukses, the chairman of P2B.

Shortly after the group delivered speeches in front of the Governor’s office, the deputy governor of Bali, Ketut Sudikerta, approached the demonstrators who screamed abuse at him, demanding news on the future of their businesses.

Permitted to speak by the protestors, Sudikerta implored for more time, reminding P2B that he had only been assigned the task of sorting out their problem five days before.

“I promise to pay attention to all points. There is no desire to leave anyone destitute. None at all,” said the deputy-governor.

Sudikerta said he plans to meet urgently with the Airport’s management to discuss the relocation of the traders.

While the members of P2B are hoping the provincial government will satisfactorily address their demands, the traders are threatening to launch larger scale demonstrations if no firm resolution is achieved by the end of September.

Prognosticating a Better Future
Bali Opens a Breast Cancer Support Center

The Bali Pink Ribbon Foundation (Yayasan Pita Merah Muda Bali) will officially open the Pink Ribbon House on Friday, October 18, 2013 from 6 :00 – 8:00 pm at Jalan Dewi Sri IV No. 1 in Kuta.

The Pink Ribbon House is the first dedicated breast cancer support center in Bali. For the past five years, working with local and International doctors, Bali Pink Ribbon (BPR) has run breast cancer awareness seminars in offices, villages, universities and hotels across Bali.

Survival rates for breast cancer, when detected early, are very high, and treatment is much less traumatic and expensive. BPR aims to bring the important message of proactive self-examination, screening and early detection to all women in Bali in an effort to save lives.

BPR also funds free breast screening for poor women.

Pink Ribbon House is a Breast Cancer Support Center offering a friendly face, the chance to talk to survivors, and information in Indonesian and English. Monthly awareness seminars are also held in the center.

Pink Ribbon House is manned by a dedicated team of local and expatriate women who support women in Bali by providing choice and a chance to live a healthy life, even with a cancer diagnosis.


Workin' for the Yankee Dollar
Faced with a Weakening Rupiah, Garuda Sets its Sights on Dollar Spending Foreign Travelers

Because of the declining value of the Indonesian Rupiah against the U.S. Dollar, Garuda Indonesia is stepping up efforts to attract foreign tourists and buffer the airline’s income stream.

Bisnis.com reports Erick Meijer, the Director of Sales and Marketing for Garuda, admits that the declining value of the Rupiah and higher fuel costs are weighing heavily on the airline’s operational costs.

“The effect is on the ticket price. It’s not possible to raise all prices -  that would just reduce the number of people flying. The solution is to seek more passengers from abroad. Our hope is that the dollar can be stabilized again,” said Meijer when interviewed at the Garuda Indonesian Travel Fair in Jakarta on September 13, 2013.

The Airline’s reasoning is that the higher value of the U.S. dollar against the Indonesian Rupiah will represent a savings to foreign visitors. Also, in order to attract more foreign visitors, Garuda Indonesia is also actively participating in overseas travel fairs in order to promote various Indonesian destinations.

“In early November we will join World Travel Market in London. In early January we will participate in a travel fair in Holland to promote Indonesia and seek more foreign tourists,” Meijer said.

At the same time the Indonesian national carrier is adding new routes and additional frequencies on established routes considered strategically important. This year Garuda will add 17 new domestic routes and 5 international routes including Medan-Penang, Surabaya-Singapore, Jakarta-Perth, Jakarta-Osaka, and Denpasar- Brisbane.

Next year Garuda is considering flying Jakarta-Manila as well as new services to Vietnam. “Countries in ASEAN have great potential. This is also the case with European destinations,” Meijer explained.

There also plans from Garuda for direct flights and additional capacity to China and the Middle East.


FPI Protestors from Lombok Traveling to Bali
UPDATE: 5,000 FPI Members from Lombok Planning to Cross to Bali

Tempo.com (14:32 – Saturday, September 14, 2013)
A spokesman for the FPI (Islamic Defenders' Front), Muchsin Alatas, says that as many as 5,000 Moslems from Lombok, East Nusa Tenggara are in the process of crossing to Bali to disrupt the Miss World 2013 contest in Bali.

According to Alatas, the FPI members are “prepared to die” to do support the fatwa of the Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI). Muschin said his members were prepared to wage war against pornography and pornographic activity on Indonesian territory.

Borrowing from the Balinese nomenclature for a suicidal fight to the death, Muschin said the FPI members “were ready to fight a Puputan.”

Muschin’s statements were made on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

Elaborating on his meaning, Muschin said Moslems totally rejected the holding of Miss World 2013 in Bali and Indonesia. He added, that if there is strong resistance from the organizers his members were prepared to (also) take strong action.

Moslems representing the hard line views of the MUI and FPI held demonstrations in several locations around Indonesia on Saturday. The central Hotel Indonesia Square in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta saw around 100 protestors all dressed in white take to the street.

Prior to the demonstration, loudspeakers across the city issued the call: “The Order of the MUI, FUI, FPI to all Moslems. Let's follow a peaceful demonstration of one million Moslems to enforce the MUI fatwa to refuse Miss World 2013 on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 13:00 WIB until finished at the HI (Hotel Indonesia) circle in Jakarta.”

With Tempo.Co reporting only one hundred demonstrators finally showing up to demonstrate, the expected number fell far short of the hoped for one million.

The orders issued to Moslems across Jakarta also told followers to invite family, friends and other followers – as many as possible. All were told to wear white clothing, bring items needed for prayer and food supplies.

Muschin told the press he felt certain that Moslems would turn out in huge numbers to refuse the Miss World Contest in Indonesia

The date for a the ceremony formally transferring authority from General Wachyunadi to General Mokalu is expected to happen in the coming few days, although the specific date has yet to be announced.

Mokalu who has the rank of a one-star general is expected to receive another star as the Bali police force is traditionally headed by a two-star general.

Mokalu has held the job of Bengkulu Chief of Police for only one year, winning that appointment in September 2012.

Wachyunadi has held the top job in the Bali police for only 9 months, since his assignment to that job in December 2012.


An Extended Stay in Bali?
Russian Man Facing Six Years in Prison for Possessing 83 grams of Marijuana

A Russian tourist Anton Pudikov (32) has heard Bali prosecutors ask that he be imprisoned for six years and fined Rp. 800 million (US$73,000) for possessing 83 grams of marijuana at his residence in Jimbaran.

State Prosecutor Ida Ayu Ketut Sulasmi told the court that Pudikov has been proven to have violated the Indonesian narcotic law.

According to the Bali Post, Police found the drugs in two separate containers when they raided his house on January 19, 2013.

The case will continue with Pudikov’s lawyer presenting his defense prior to a final ruling on guilt or innocencce by the panel of judges.


Barking Up the Wrong Tree
BAWA Raided by Bali Animal Health Officials

Radar Bali (Jawa Post) reports that a joint team from the Livestock Services of Bali (Disnak-Bali) and Gianyar (Disnak-Gianyar) visited the clinic of the Bali Animal Welfare Association Foundation (BAWA) on Wednesday, September 11, 2013.

According to the subject press report, the government inspectors said that almost of all the dogs found at the clinic had not been inoculated for rabies.

The surprise visit by the animal health officials was precipitated when inspectors encountered 13 animals at the private residence of Janice Gilardi, Founder & Executive Director of BAWA, near Tampaksiring that officials claim were unvaccinated.

The suggestion that animals at the clinic or Gilardi’s residence might be lacking rabies inoculation seems oddly incongruous with BAWA's active lead in vaccination programs across Bali.

The Bali animal health officials said the reason given for the animals found at Gilardi’s home being not vaccinated against rabies was that the animals had their own veterinarian.

The team of animal health officials then diverted to the BAWA office in Ubud. Led by the head of the Animal Health Department for Bali (Keswan), Ketut Gde Nata Kesuma, the team reportedly discovered that a number of irregularities in the building and operating permits, lack of proper permits for the veterinarian working with the clinic.

Nata Kesuma told the press: “Until now the activities of BAWA have left the impression of being secretive. Until now I have never been able to meet with the head of the foundation. Now all the facts are out.”

The Radar Bali article said that when officials checked 87 local dogs of various ages at the BAWA Clinic “almost all” were unvaccinated. According to the press article, the reason given to officials was that the animals were too young.

The officials claim the dogs are released to new adopted owners without vaccination. Kadek Saka, a veterinarian at the clinic, was reported in the article as telling the press that this job of vaccination would be handled by the new owners.

According to the Radar Bali, the animal health team was unable to meet with Janice Giraldi who was away in Hong Kong. Another director of BAWA, Meilianti, was also unable to meet with officials.

Nata Kesuma questioned how the clinic was disposing of animal waste. An official of the clinic said the wastes were brought to a hospital in Denpasar where they were burnt.

Nata Kesuma also alleged that 17 veterinarians were working at the clinic without the mandatory license.

BAWA Responds

While Janice Giraldi is out of Bali at the moment, BAWA has issued the following response at Balidiscovery.com’s invitation:

"Sadly it seems the recently published articles in the Radar Bali are more slanderous than truthful and BAWA would like to clarify the facts."

"1. Since 2009, BAWA Bali has been working with the government and a number of districts to help respond to the rabies virus. The government provides rabies vaccines for BAWA vets and on many occasions has requested our help to run joint vaccination programs, especially with catching the outside dogs as BAWA has the required expertise to assist in these situations."

"BAWA had an MOU with the Government to train local Dinas in this technique so they could be self-sufficient. When the Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO) took the program over from BAWA (in accordance with our MOU with the Governor) the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) were the same as BAWA had written. Within the SOP’s there is a clear euthanasia and vaccination policy that all agreed was the best way to eradicate rabies."  



"2. We refute the statement in the article that says that dogs are never vaccinated at BAWA clinic prior to being adopted. All dogs given to adopters are always rabies vaccinated according to our original SOP and according to law. We were the original proponents of rabies vaccination on the island. We would hope that the pet markets, breeders and pet shops would also comply with this rule."

"3. We also disagree with the statement that Janice Girardi’s pet dogs are not vaccinated. This is not true. All of her dogs always get an annual vaccination and this can be evidenced in the form of the vaccination books that shows the vaccine history of each animal and the date of the last vaccination, being February, 2013. We can supply a copy of the booklets if desired."

"Janice was the first person in Bali to help procure rabies vaccines and was the driving force for the rabies program island wide with many articles and even books internationally written on the subject."
