IN THIS UPDATE


The Road to Bali
Bali’s First Toll Road Opened and Christened 'Jalan Tol Bali Mandara'

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono inaugurated the Benoa-Ngurah Rai Airport-Nusa Dua Toll Road on Monday, September 23, 2013, officially bestowing the name “Jalan Tol Bali Mandara” on the Island first toll road.

The President explained that the name Jalan Tol Bali Mandara is an acronym for: Bali Aman Damai Sejahtera.
  • Bali Maju – A dynamic Bali able to keep pace with the world, while, at the same time in harmony with traditional Balinese cultural values.
  • Bali Aman – Bali as a society that prizes social harmony and security.
  • Bali Damai – Bali as an island of peace and prosperity.
  • Bali yang Sejahtera – Bali as an island that provides for the welfare of all the people of Bali
The President said: “The Jalan Tol Bali Mandara will become a new tourism icon for Bali. I ask the people of Bali to care for this road well in order to increases the public welfare of the people of Bali.”

Speaking also at the inauguration, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika declared the new roadway as the “most beautiful toll road in the world.” He told the audience that Bali’s first toll road has the potential of becoming a destination in its own right on the island of Bali.

Pastika said that from its inception the toll way built over Benoa Bay was constructed in line with the concept of being strong, green and beautiful.

“This has become a new tourism object and, moreover, a new tourism icon in South Bali,” explained the Governor.

The governor told the audience attending the inauguration event that Bali Mandara has already planted 16,000 trees in the surrounding mangrove. These trees , he assured, will be cared for until they reach maturity. He insisted that the 12,7-kilometer long roadway has not disturbed Bali’s ecosystem, has not interfered with the activates of fishermen, and does not disturb flight traffic patterns at the nearby airport.

“From the toll way people can enjoy sunsets, the greenness of the mangrove, the passing aircraft above and the activities of fishermen shining in the dusk of evening,” boasted Governor Pastika.


Who’s That Knocking on Your Door?
Authorities Combing Denpasar to Root Out Foreigners Operating Unlicensed Businesses in Bali’s Capital

On Monday, September 23, 2013, a combined team from the Denpasar Political Solidarity Bureau (Kesbangpol), immigration, manpower, the provincial tourism office, local community officials and police conducted raids at several locations in Bali’s capital of Denpasar. The purpose of the raids was to capture foreigners thought to be working illegally at local businesses.

Part of what is promised to be an ongoing effort, the first area visited by the team covered Jalan Waribang to East Denpasar.

“The first team visited a shop selling Ralph Lauren shirts on Jalan Waribang, It appears that the shop is managed by a Korean, Chung Chan Ho. As for Mr. Cho he holds naturalization certificates issued by the courts when he married his wife who is also from Korea,” explained the leader of the raids, I Wayan Sudana from Kesbangpol-Denpasar.

Sudana told Radar Bali that while Chung was able to present proof of Indonesian citizenship, he was unable to present documentation for his wife. Chung and his wife have been asked to prepare photocopies of all their documentation to hand to authorities when they pay a return visit to his shop in a few day's time.

The team also discovered that the shop operated by the Chung’s held no valid business operating license, a matter that has been turned over to the licensing department of the municipality.

Following the visit to the Chung’s place of business, the team continued on to visit a home stay and villa located on Jalan Raya Padang Galak. At the home stay the team found all was in order, but the villa, believed to be owned by a German, was unable show the required operating licenses, permits and the personal documents of the villa occupant.

Sudana explained that the purpose of the raid was not to prevent foreigners from living in Denpasar, but to identify those doing so without the required legal documentation. He said such documentation became even more important when foreigners are operating businesses in Denpasar.

In closing, Sudana added: “The investigative raids are part of our routine agenda. Thus, it is not only local residents, but also foreigners (that we check). This is because foreigners are not only taking up residency in Bali, but also opening businesses."


Expecting the Unexpected
Indonesian Red Cross Prepares Generous Supply of Blood and Emergency Response Teams for APEC Summit

The Bali Chapter of the Indonesia Red Cross (PMI) has prepared 5,000 sacks of blood donations, including rhesus positive and rhesus negative blood, on the eve of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC) to be held in Bali October 1-9, 2013.

The head of Health Services for PMI in Bali, Eko Wardani, told the State News Agency Antara on Wednesday, September 26, 2013, “All blood types, including rare rhesus, are prepared and we also have available an association of foreign rare blood donors living in Bali.”

As the date for the APEC Conference draws near, Wardani confirmed that PMI would hold coordinating meetings reviewing blood storage and distribution with the Sanglah General Hospital, BIMC Hospital and the Siloam Hospital.

In the case of a medical emergency, should a shortage of blood occur coordination would take place between the three hospitals to send any needed supply of blood immediately to the venue of the APEC Summit.

“We have put volunteers on alert to dispatch donated blood, if needed,” said Wardani.

Eko Wardani underlined that 5 ambulances operated by PMI Badung and PMI Denpasar have been fully equipped to an international standard and will be on stand-by 24 hours a day in support of the APEC Conference.

The Indonesia Red Cross (PMI) also have 200 trained Disaster Relief Volunteers (SATGANA) ready to respond to any crisis.

In closing, Wardani said: “The PMI has established an disaster relief command post open 24 hours a day during the APEC Summit in Nusa Dua, while at the same time increasing the level of cross communication between PMI volunteers in every regency.”


Hurry Up and Wait
While Bali’s Mandara Toll Road Reaps High Praise, the Three Access Points to the Roadway are Plagued by Congestion and Delays

Just two days after the opening of Bali’s Mandara Toll Road it has become painfully apparent that bottlenecks and tailbacks at each of the three access points for the new road are likely to be an unwanted “bonus” from the much lauded roadway.

DenPost reports that on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, traffic from Taman Griya to Kedonganan was moving smoothly. It was a different story, however, at the roundabout near Bali’s airport where long lines of traffic in several directions were observed. Cars entering the circle drive from Denpasar, Nusa Dua, the new Toll Way and the Airport without aid of a traffic light sought to outmaneuver each other, resulting in massive traffic snarls.

Police on duty at the roundabout eventually took the matter in hand, directing traffic by hand, alternating flows of vehicles to relieve congestion. Despite their best efforts, however, long delays for traffic moving in all directions were the rule.

Delays and congested traffic were also found at the southern entrance to the new toll road at Nusa Dua. There a traffic light installed to assist traffic flows did little to prevent long lines of traffic from forming in either direction, north or south.

Similarly, the traffic light operating at the intersection leading to the Benoa entrance to the toll road also did little to alleviated long tailbacks from the Sesetan intersection stretching almost one kilometer in the direction of the toll road. Motorist sped at record speeds from Nusa Dua to Sanur only to then lose the time saved waiting to rejoin the Jalan Ngurah Rai By Pass at the Sesetan intersection.

One local citizen in Kedonganan, Nyoman Sukirta, who is also a Badung legislator, suggests the government  must construct a flyover to speed traffic traveling from Nusa Dua to Denpasar. Such a flyover, he explained, would allow vehicles exiting the toll and bound for the airport to pass unhindered on the road beneath the flyover.

Another man, Made Ardika, who lives in Denpasar but works in Jimbaran, spoke to DenPost and echoed Sukirta’s statements. Ardika said that without adding a flyover at the airport entrance to the toll road the purpose of the new road would be defeated as people travelled quickly to the airport only to face long delays at the airport roundabout.

Ardika added: “The people prayed that the toll road would reduce traffic jams. Let’s not allow it to only move the location of the traffic jams.”

A Fine Day for Schapelle
Schapelle Pays Rp. 100 million Fine is Effort to Move Closer to Parole

Australian Schapelle Leigh Corby has reportedly paid a court-imposed fine of Rp. 100 million (US$8.700) thereby addressing one of the outstanding requirements requiring completion for the final approval of her application for parole from Bali’s Kerobokan Prison.

The 36-year-old Australian woman is in the 8th year of 20-year sentence for trying to smuggle 4.2 kilograms of marijuana into Indonesia.

As reported by Temo.co.id., Corby filed a formal application for conditional parole in September, asking to be allowed to spend the rest of her sentence living with her sister, Mercedes, in Bali.

Prison and Justice Department officials are said to be in the course of verifying all the documentation required in the application before forwarding them to the Minister of Justice and Human Rights who has final authority in the matter.

The head of the Kerobokan prison, Gusti Ngurah Wiratna, said that Schapelle Corby’s application for parole would still need time to complete the administrative process. Adding: “It’s like the proverbial journey of a thousand miles, she’s only traveled 200 kilometers. There’s still much ground to cover.”

Jungle Fever
60 Hectares of Jungle on Slopes of Bali’s Mt. Agung Ablaze

es affecting the forested slopes of Bali’s sacred Mt. Agung continue to spread.

The Bali Post estimates that this year’s fires have devastated more than 60 hectares of jungle cover.

The regional head of the Karangasem Disaster Mitigation Agency, Nyoman Sutirtayasa, said on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, that the combined efforts of his team, armed forces and police working only with scythes, shovels, fire traps and small extinguishers are finding it difficult to control the flames on the challenging hillside terrain.

Current estimates by fire fighters put the number of burning hot spots at more than 600, located some 1,200 meters above sea level.

The fires that started in the western regions of Juntal, Kubu and Karangasem initially spread in a northerly direction. However, on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, the areas affected by flames shifted to the south and began to involve the eastern slopes of Mt. Agung above the villages of Tulamben and Datah. Some of the areas consumed by flames are reported to be moving perilously close to inhabited settlements.

While noting that the fires were spreading, Sutiryasa discounted any possibility that the flames would touch the sacred Pura Pasar Agung Sebudi. The disaster specialist said the temple is located on the western back of the mountain, saying it will be difficult for the flames to climb to the higher elevations of Mt. Agung that are covered primarily in non-flammable sand and stone.

Fire fighters suspect the fire on Mt. Agung may have been started accidentally by a wild honey gatherers or by farmers burning trash or grassed areas.

Similar fires burnt large areas on Mt. Agung last year.

West Bali

Meanwhile, the north-facing slopes of the mountainsides east of Pemuteran, northwest Bali, are also ablaze.

Parking Without Parallel
Denpasar Parking Authority Prepare Customer Complaint Number to Report Dishonest Parking Attendants

The Director of the Denpasar Parking Authority (PD Parkir), Nyoman Gede “Punglik” Sudiantara, is asking the public to take an active role in supervising parking attendants working in Bali’s capital city.

Punglik asks that parking attendants thought to be performing badly or operating in a dishonest way be reported to the public service telephone number provided by the PD Parkir.

Punglik’s comments, reported by Beritabali.com, were in response to criticism of the service provided by parking attendants in Denpasar who often refuse to give printed parking receipts to motorists.

“Many complain about attendants who won’t give out parking receipts. But, in fact, they are obliged to give a printed receipt to everyone who pays a parking fee,” he explained.

In order to take action against recalcitrant parking attendants, the are asking to report any misconduct or bad service by telephoning:

++62-(0) 361- 7855521

At present, a total of 382 parking attendants are formally employed and paid wages by the municipality of Denpasar. If “local” or non-formal parking attendants “cooperating” with those formally employed by the city are included in the count, the total number of those tending to parking in Denpasar rises to 1,200.

And, therein may lay the problem.


A Resort to Beauty
Miss World 2013 Contestants Luxuriate at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali

During the Miss World Competition held in Bali, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali extended a traditional welcoming ceremony involving Balinese dancers and a scattering of flowers.
Director of the Resort, Bipan Kapur, and his management team wanted to create a memorable welcome for arguably the most beautiful girls on the planet in order to underline the well known warmth of Balinese hospitality.

While at The Westin, the contestants had the chance to experience the Resort’s new wing featuring stylish accommodation categories, a lagoon swimming pool and signature initiatives.

The ladies also sampled a specially prepared breakfast and dinner at the Resort’s new Italian restaurant Prego.
In preparation for their rigorous stage performances, the contestants rehearsed choreography in the newly refurbished Exhibition Gallery. Some of the contestants learned traditional Indonesian dance in preparation for the show, while others used the WestinWORKOUT fitness center.

The opening ceremony for Miss World 2013 was held in the Mangapura Hall at the adjacent Bali International Convention Centre (BICC). That event was televised to viewers in 160 nations around the globe on Sunday, 8th September 2013.

Lending the charm of the island to their VIP guests, The Westin arranged a number of inspiring activities for those vying to be named the world’s most beautiful. This included an early morning turtle release on the beach of Nusa Dua supported by Bali Sea Turtle Society. This took place at sunrise and involved a ritual blessing by a Balinese priest to ensure the turtles would have a safe journey.

The girls were also invited to participate in Kampung Westin - an evening bazaar set up in front of BICC recreating a traditional Balinese marketplace with stalls selling handicrafts and souvenirs.

Bali Hospital on Hold
Delays in Issuance of Building Permit Means Bali Mandara International Hospital on Hold Until Next Year

The Bali Daily (Jakarta Post) reports that the provincial government of Bali has postponed the building of the Bali Mandara International Hospital until at least next year.

The hospital, intended as the centerpiece of the Bali’s government-funded free universal healthcare Program (JKBM - Jaminan Kesehatan Bali Mandara), has been delayed due to the slow processing of the building permit (IMB) for the project.

While many in Bali “build first and seek permission later” Governor Pastika has remained adamant that the construction of the new hospital must conform strictly to the rules.

The Governor explained to provincial legislators: “We have to delay the start of the construction phase because we encountered problems during the process of applying for the IMB [building construction permit].”

The IMB permit from Denpasar municipal authorities was only issued in August, making it impossible to complete the project in the current fiscal year.

“We only have three months left if we want to complete the construction stage in this year’s budget period, which I believe is a nearly impossible feat to accomplish. I will ask the contractor whether they would be able to do this. If they say no, then we will have to start construction next year,” Pastika said.

The delay in the program requires the Governor to seek a new appropriation in the 2014 budget in order for construction to commence.

Pastika’s desire to build a 200-bed hospital in Bali controlled by the Provincial administration is to in-source medical services estimated at Rp. 280 billion (US$24.85) currently out-sourced by Bali to regency or Jakarta-controlled hospitals. Said Pastika: “Bali Mandara International Hospital will enable us to channel a significant part of the money back to the provincial coffers.”



Bali currently has 1.9 million registered participants in the JKBM universal health care program.

Cost of building to the news hospital is put at Rp. 195 billion. (US$17 million).

Bali Under A Tight Security Umbrella
Warships, Fighter Aircraft and Massive Police Presenceto Keep World’s Leaders Safe in Bali During APEC Summit

In anticipation of the gathering of world leaders to take place in Bali during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC), 15 warships will be patrolling the coastal waters of Bali October 1-8, 2013.

Defense Forces (TNI) Commander General Moeldoko, quoted by the State News Agency Antara, said: "A total of 15 warships have been deployed."
Also forming part of the sizeable military deployment in place to ensure the peace are F-16 fighter jets, Sukhoi and M-17 fighters."

The General discounted the possibility of any attack being mounted during the APEC conference but explained that the deployment was needed nonetheless to deter any potential security threat.

While the Navy and Air Force will guard Bali’s seas and skies, 11 thousand police will be on duty during the summit to be attended by an estimated 25 heads of state.

"We are on stand-by mode. Standard operating procedures have been prepared in case of threats," explained General Moeldoko.


Denpasar – A Haven for Scofflaws
Denpasar Officials Impotent to Enforce Green Zone No-Build Rules

DenPost reports that the signs declaring specified areas of Bali’s capital city of Denpasar as “no-build” green zones are in many cases being ignored.

The Green Zone Notices (Jalur Hijau) installed by the Zoning and Housing Agency of Denpasar (DTRP) on the left and right sides of the Peguyangan Subak (Jalan Suradipa) have proven themselves invisible and with no deterrent value to those building homes in business in violation of local zoning laws.

Large sign board forbidding construction within the green zone now stand in the middle of recently built boarding houses, workshops and two-storey luxury residences.

A visit the area along Jalan Suradipa, Peguyangan on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, proved locals pay little or no heed to warnings forbidding construction the official green zone, as seen by the large number of permanent buildings in place and the building boom underway evidenced by the large number of new structures nearing completion.

One local residents interviewed by DenPost freely admitted that all the buildings along Jalan Suradipa have been built in violation of the green zone ordinance. “All violate the green zone. The boarding houses, the workshops and the luxury homes – all are standing in the green zone,” said a man who did not wish his name appearing print. The man said the owners of the illegal structures were by people from outside Denpasar and also long-standing residents of Peguyangan.

The man asked: “Can a building that had already been constructed and has become a permanent structure be penalized by the Denpasar administration? Can a building already standing be demolished? I’d like to know if the Denpasar administration is prepared to enforce the rules.”

Meanwhile, the chief of Zoning and Planning for Denpasar, Dewa Wesnawa Wedagama, said that if there were buildings violating the green zone rules in the Peguyangan Subak along Jalan Suradipa, his office and the Denpasar Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) would immediately take action by issuing warnings and halting all construction. Wedagama, appearing ignorant of the numerous and flagrant violating of the zoning rules in the area, expressed surprise and promised to send an enforcement team the next day to look into the reported violations.
 


Missing Person
Remains Discovered in Jungle Near Kintamani Believed to be Those of Missing South Korean

Police feel they are moving closer to a positive identification of the skeletal remains of a man discovered in the jungle at Bukit Penulisan, Kintamani.

DenPost reports that the remains are believed to be  those of a 67-year-old South Korean man, Chun Bock Man, who disappeared from his Abiansemal, Denpasar home three months ago. The man, prior to his disappearance, taught Korean language and was active in a local Pentecostal Church.

Working from immigration documents held by the South Korean, items of clothing and dental evidence police are now preparing to conduct DNA tests that would positively identify if the remains found are those of the missing South Korean.

The dental remains of the body found in the jungle have gold fillings, a trait he shared with the missing man. The brand of a pair of shoes found near the body are the same as an empty box found at the South Korean's now vacant residence.

Police say that only after they have a positive identity of the missing remains can they truly begin to investigate the circumstance behind his disappearance and whether or not the man died of natural causes.

The computer was stolen at a 7:10 pm on the Tuesday evening from a special counter set up to assist delegates attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference (APEC) now underway in Bali.

According to NusaBali, immigration official Endro Eko Saputro immediately reported the loss of the computer to the Airport police office. After interviewing those who may have witnessed the theft and consulting other security measures in place, police were able to raid room 308 at the Hotel Nusa Dua Beach occupied by the Taiwanese where they found the missing computer.

Police placed Chen under arrest for steeling the computer shortly after arriving on Malaysian Airlines from Kuala Lumpur.

Police identify Chen as a regular tourist and not connected with the APEC Conference. The Taiwanese continues to undergo intense questioning by police and is expected to be charges with criminal theft.


The Paved Path to Destruction
Police Statistics Warn of the Danger of Driving on the Roads of Indonesia

Bali Police estimate that 1,500 road accidents occur each year on the Island, resulting in some 550 deaths.

These figure suggest an average of two people die each day on Bali’s roads.

Bali’s total accidents still represent a small fraction of the 109,038 accidents that occur nationwide and the 25,131 resulting fatalities recorded by police each year.

The property damage incurred from the carnage on Indonesia’s highways is put at Rp. 222.2 billion (US$19.3 million).

The Director of Traffic at the Bali Police Headquarters, Beno Leohennapessy, recently shared these figures, published in The Bali Post.

Beno blamed the high rate of traffic accidents and deaths on a number of factors, including human error and the condition on Bali’s roads.

The risks endemic in travelling on Indonesia’s roads is not limited to vehicle operators with an estimated 18 pedestrians also dying each day somewhere within the country.

Beno said the main types of “human error” related to traffic accidents are fatigue, driving while under the influence of alcohol, and speeding. He said that breaking existing traffic rules is the starting point of most road mishaps.


Bali Seeks to be a Class by its Own
Legislation Being Prepared to Give Province of Bali Special Autonomy Status

A team formulating national legislation on special autonomy status for Bali have formed a special committee within The Indonesian Regional Representatives Council (DPD-RI) targeting for a complete presentation on special territory status for Bali to be ready by November 2013.

Special autonomy status for Bali is quickly acquiring broad-based support on the island, according to the chairman of the team formulating the legislation and a member of the DPD-RI, Wayan Sudirta.

Sudirta told NusaBali that the DPD-RI has solicited and obtained input from a borad sampling of  community leaders and academics on the issues of special autonomy for Bali that was used in formulating the proposed legislation.

During the month of October the team will socialize the concept to the people of Bali, allowing final alterations based on public sentiment to be included in any final draft document.

Sudirta said a major motivation in seeking special autonomy status for Bali is a desire to preserve the province's natural environment and local culture. At the same time, he said the legislation would also safeguard the national interests of all Indonesians.


A Howling Shame
Barring Last Minute Reprieve, BAWA – Expected to Close its Door

The Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) closed its doors of its Ubud Clinic on Monday, September 30, 2013, following the delivery of a third and final warning letter from the Gianyar regency for failing to obtain an entire range of permits and licenses that are still under process, but yet to receive formal approval.

Janice Girardi, the founder of BAWA, told press conference on Sunday, September 29, 2013, that despite their best efforts, the final permits could not be issued within the strict deadline period set by authorities.

Authorities cited BAWA for lacking the proper building permit, the lack of an environmental impact study, and a failure to manage solid and atmospheric pollution.

Many have claimed that the very strict enforcement steps taken by the Gianyar administration against BAWA were selective and discriminatory, taken in perceived retaliation for BAWA's spirited and outspoken promotion of rabies prevention and animal rights issues in Bali, sometimes done at the expense of disgruntled officials.

Further fueling the view that BAWA's closure may be both mean-spirited and selective is the fact that, the Regency of Gianyar is not generally known for the imposition of the strict letter of the law in other areas. A point in case, local press reports say illegal accommodation providers in Gianyar far outnumber the legally licensed establishments, demonstrating that strict adherence to rules and permits is more the exception than the rule in Gianyar. (See link: Illegal Outposts in the Hills of Bali)

Girardi told the press conference on Sunday that BAWA had played a central role in the vaccination of 280,000 dogs and the sterilization of 13,280 animals during period of service in Bali.

BAWA’s lawyer, Nyoman “Punglik” Sudiantara, announced to the press conference that he is still hopeful that lobbying effort with the Gianyar administration will earn BAWA an extension of time to organize permits while at the same time being allowed to continue their work.

Originally established on the recommendation of the Regency of Gianyar in 2010, BAWA has worked in the forefront of rabies prevention, community education, sterilization programs and the emergency rescue of injured animals by medical teams working from roving ambulances around the clock.

As the deadline for closure loomed, rescue programs were forced to come to a halt as BAWA workers scrambled to find homes for the nearly 100 animals still under their care. Sick and injured dogs on the side of Bali's roads no longer recive life-saving medical and paliative care from BAWA, but are left to suffer and die in the dust unless other compassionate help can be found.

While efforts to obtain the needed licenses continue, the future of the tens of paid workers employed by BAWA also remains very much in doubt.

Couched in Death
Police Discover Body of Dead Expatriate and Unconscious Female at North Kuta, Bali Villa

A 38-year-old expatriate male, Toby Lord, has been found dead on the sofa of a villa at Jalan Merta Agung No. 20 in Kerobokan, North Kuta.

The man, whose body was discovered early on Sunday morning, September 29, 2013, has been alternatively identified as an American or an Australian in various Indonesian media outlets.

When an ambulance and police responded to the scene, they discovered Lord’s body lifeless on a sofa in the living room of the villa and an unconscious female companion, 36-year-old Spaniard Sara Macule Olalde, in an adjoining bedroom.

The woman was rushed to the Bali International Medical Center Hospital (BIMC) where she is reported to have regained consciousness and will soon be interviewed by police.

The cause of Lord’s death and the woman unconsciousness remain under investigation by police.

According to Radar Bali, Indonesian police cannot confirm the cause of the man’s death. Police did confirm, however, there were no signs violence on the bodies of the two people or at the villa. Opened alcoholic beverages were found near the man’s dead body together with a medical syringe, fueling suspicion in the local media that an overdose of alcohol and/or drugs might be involved.

Police says forensic tests on the site, the dead man’s body and interviews with Olalde will soon allow them to obtain a clearer understanding of what actually transpired at the villa.
