Elderly German Dies on Bali Holiday
An 80-year-old German Dies at Sanur Resort from Heart Failure.

Siegfried Hans Richard, a repeat guest at the Prama Sanur Beach Bali Resort had been staying at the hotel for one week when at 3:30 pm on Sunday, January 25, 2014, he was discovered motionless, hanging onto the edge of the pool with his arms under his chin.

Hotel recreational staff immediately hauled the man from the pool while two staff members provided CPR resuscitation. A doctor and nurse arrived a short time later and ordered the man be urgently transported to a nearby hospital.

An ambulance on stand-by at the Resort rushed Richard to the Sanglah General Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after 4:00 pm.

A preliminary forensic examination of the Richard’s body showed evidence of recent heart surgery, a fact consistent with a large amount of medication found in his hotel room.

The German Consulate was informed of Richard’s death with officials at the Sanglah General Hospital awaiting instructions regarding final disposition of his remains.

Meanwhile, saddened at the sudden death of a repeat guest well known to many employees of the hotel, a simple ceremony in accordance with Bali-Hindu beliefs and intended to ensure a smooth passage of Richard’s soul to its next domain was organized by hotel workers.

RIP: Christian Vannequé 1949-2015
International Wine Legend Christian Vannequé Dies in Bali at 65

Popular Bali restaurateur and sommelier Christian Vannequé and proprietor of Sip Wine Bar in Seminyak died in Bali on January 9, 2015 following a brief illness.
a ballerina and a bandleader, Vannequé was raised by his paternal grandparents who ran a well known country inn neat Nancy, France. Helping at the family’ Michelin-rated L’Hostellerie de la Côte Noiriel introduced Christian to his life-long love of good dining and fine wine.
 
Vannequé formally embarked on his nearly 50-year career in 1967 as an assistant cellar man at the three star Tour d'Argent restaurant in Paris as an assistant cellar man. He quickly rose in the ranks, becoming at 20-years-of-age the youngest head sommelier working in France. In quick succession his precocious talents as a connoisseur of fine wines earn his roles as an expert wine taster at the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 and in the same year The Judgment of Paris 30th Anniversary.
 
Over a distinguished career Vannequé participated in the opening of restaurants in France, the United States and Bali. He worked in management and consulting roles at The Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Hills, L’Orangerie and Jack Nicholson’s private club – Helena’s – in Los Angeles, as well as the Givenchy Resort & Spa in Palm Springs

Vanneque’s love affair with Bali began in 2001 when on an extended visit to Bali he launched a guidebook to Bali's best restaurants and bars. In 2008, he opened the Sip Wine Bar in Seminyak. Boasting one of Bali’s most extensive wine lists, Sip Wine Bar was a natural extension of Christian’s love of fine wine and food.
 
Contributing to Vanneque’s legendary status in wine circles was his July 2011 purchase of a bottle of white wine when he paid the high price of US$123,000 for an 1811 bottle of Chateau d'Yquem. It was Christia's unrealized intention to uncork the bottle at a private dinner party to be held in August 2017 to celebrate his 50th years as a professional sommelier.
 
A memorial service is planned for February 9, 2015 at the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Jl. Kartika Plaza 107 in Kuta at 6:00 pm.
 
All are welcome to attend.


Not on Our Island
Bali Drug Prisoners Will be Relocated to Java for Execution

A decision has been made to carry out the execution of the two members of the “Bali Nine” sentenced to death outside the island of Bali.

As a result, it is presumed that Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan will soon be relocated to the Nusa Kambangan Prison Island in Java where a firing squad will end their lives.

The announcement from the State Prosecutor’s office follows public pronouncements by Bali’s Governor that it would be best if the planned execution of narcotic offenders was not carried out in Bali.

It remains unclear if the next round of executions by the State expected in February will include Sukumaran and Chan.

Five Stars in the Indonesian Skies
Garuda Indonesia Earns Five Star Rating from Skytrax

Garuda Indonesia has been given a five star rating by Skytrax – an independent airline-ranking agency headquartered in London.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the CEO of Garuda Indonesia Arif Wibowo said at the presentation of the award in Jakarta that the Skytrax recognition represented a milestone for Garuda and international recognition of the transformation and improvements that have taken place at the National Flag Carrier.
 
Said Wibowo: “This achievement we proudly present to the people of Indonesia. This award will challenge Garuda in the future to consistently improve and provide excellent service, ensuring that those who fly with Garuda are comfortable.”
 
Arif took the opportunity to express his thanks to all the employees of Garuda Indonesia who proudly serve passengers and have participated in the transformative process that allowed the Airline to win the Skytrax award.
 
The Skytrax naming of Garuda Indonesia as a “five star airline” was announced on December 11, 2014, following an exhaustive review of the Indonesian national carrier’s service and hospitality.
 
Among the 200 airlines reviewed by Skytrax, only seven qualify for the “five star” designation: Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, Qatar Airways, Asiana Airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA), Hainan Airlines and Garuda Indonesia.
 
Indonesia’s Minister of Transportation Ignasius Jonan congratulated Garuda for its outstanding performance that he views as a source of pride for the Indonesian people.
 
Edward Plaisted, the CEO of Skytrax said the five star designation represents a confirmation of Garuda’s effort to transform its level of in-flight service. Plaisted said the review committee was particularly impressed with Garuda’s Business Class seating that can be opened to 180-degrees (flat-bed seating) and Economy Class seating offering legroom of 32-34 inches.
 
Garuda also earned high marks for its excellent standard of ground service.


Bali Crack Down on Illegal Workers in 2015
Immigration, Police and Manpower Officials to Closely Supervise Foreign Workers in 2015

Metrobali.com reports that Bali is cracking down on foreigners violating immigration rules as Indonesia moves into the ASEAN Economic Cooperation Zone (MEA) 2015.

The chief of the Immigration Office for the Province of Bali I Gusti Kompiang Adnyana, said on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, “We will increase our service and supervision – particularly in the area of law enforcement.”
 
The introduction of an ASEAN Free Trade Zone in 2015 is expected to increase the number of foreign workers with specialized skills moving freely between ASEAN countries and the market for goods and services are liberalized in an ASEAN Free Trade Zone.
 
In order to minimalize immigration rule infractions by foreign workers, immigration officials in Bali are pledging to more strictly supervise and enforce stay permit rules. In the coming stricter regime of law enforcement - immigration, police, and community officials and prosecutors will all take part.
 
Among those areas receiving special attention from law enforcement will be Buleleng, Denpasar and Kuta.
 
In 2014 the Ministry of Justice in Bali deported 208 foreigners. At this time, 11 foreign nationals are in immigration detention awaiting deportation.
 
An immigration official said the largest number of those deported were Chinese workers who were apprehended in Buleleng, North Bali working at hotels and infrastructure projects.


Service Charge Included
Garuda to Resume Inclusion of Passenger Service Charge in Ticket Price Effective February 1, 2015

The Jakarta Globe reports that Garuda will once again include the cost of the passenger service charge in all tickets issued or domestic and international flights starting from February 1, 2105.
 
The Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan has ordered all Indonesian airlines to include the passenger service charge in their ticket price. 
 
Tickets purchase on or after February 1 form Garuda Indonesia for flights after March 1, 2015 will include the passenger service charge.
 
Those who have booked a flight departing before March 1st will still need to pay the passenger service charge in cash.


Altitude Sickness
Indonesian Airlines Required to Check Cockpit Crew's Health on Each Flight Before Takeoff

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation, Adravida Barata, told Tempo.co  that Indonesian airlines are now required to have “at least” one medical personnel on standby to monitor the health of pilots and co-pilots before take-off.

This new safety requirement being imposed on Indonesian air carriers is outlined in a regulation issued by Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan on January 15, 2015 of Health Standards and Certification of Flight Crew (Peraturan Menteri Perhubungan Nomor 8 Tahun 2015 tentang Standar Kesehatan dan Sertifikasi Personel Penerbangan).

Barata was speaking in Jakarta on Monday, January 26, 2015 at the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN). He went on to explain that the medical staff would be expected to test the blood pressure of flight crew and determine if they are under the influence of alcohol. Emphasizing that specialist doctors are not required for such health screenings, the Ministry spokesman said such tests are needed to prevent pilots and co-pilots in an unfit condition from taking commands of a commercial aircraft.

The President Director of Indonesia AirAsia Sunu Widyatmoko asserted that his airline has always routinely reviewed the health of its cockpit crews. Commercial pilots must undergo a complete physical twice yearly, plus a separate additional drug screening by BNN also conducted twice a year. There are also unscheduled surprise checks conducted by the Aviation Medical team of the Directorate General of Aviation done at a minimum of once a year.

Baggage Storage Facilities at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport

This service is particularly helpful for people who want to store winter clothing or extra bags while the embark on a Bali and Beyond exploration.
 
The luggage storage service is located on the ground floor of the airport in the left-hand corner after you enter the terminal.

Wrapping, strapping and locker services are available.

International Crime Busters
Australian Federal Police Will Continue to Provide Information to Assist Indonesian Police in the Arrest of Australian Lawbreakers

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) will retain its authority to fully cooperate with foreign police agencies – even when that cooperation might result in a death sentence for an Australian citizen.

The debate over whether or not the AFP should be involved in international crime busting that might send Australian criminals to a seat on a foreign death row surfaced again with the imminent execution of Australian Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan who were apprehended by Indonesian police based on a tip provided by the AFP.

An AFP spokesman said: "The exchange of law enforcement information is a regular and routine part of mutual co-operation. The AFP cannot limit its co-operation to countries that have similar legal systems as Australia."

The AFP can and will continue to provide information to overseas police agencies before an arrest, even when the subsequent arrest can engender a possible death penalty. Information provided by the AFP can be shared with foreign police agencies without seeking prior approval from the Australian Attorney-General.

Based on information provided by a distraught parent of one of the “Bali Nine” co-conspirators, information was provided to Indonesian Customs and Police in April 2005 that resulted in the arrest of the group of young Australians as they boarded a flight in Bali bound for Australia carrying commercial quantities of heroin taped to their bodies. As a result of those arrests, two of the nine are facing execution and the remaining seven prison sentences ranging from fifteen years to life.

The Australian courts have reviewed the case and ruled that the AFP acted lawfully in providing the information to Indonesian police.
 
In cases involving Australian nationals already under arrests, the AFP must first seek ministerial approval before providing information that might contribute to a conviction resulting a death sentence.


When Policemen Take License
NZ Media Couple Report Inappropriate Request from Bali Traffic Cop

The timing of the two articles was entirely coincidental.

As Balidiscovery.com went to press with Bali Update Edition #960 suggesting Indonesia should follow the dominant global trend by reciprocating in accepting foreign drivers licenses from visiting tourists (Revolusi Mental: A Small Change in Driver License Rules Would Make a Big Difference in the Daily Life of Many Bali Visitors)  the urgent need for such a changes in the rules was driven home by an article in the New Zealand press by Heather du Plessis-Allan and Barry Soper.

The husband and wife journalistic team from New Zealand were on a Bali holiday when they report they were stopped at an intersection in the Kerobokan area of Kuta for failing to stop at a red light, not wearing a helmet and failing to have an international driver’s license.

Invited to discuss their infraction at the roadside police post (the same one, incidentally, made famous in a Dutch journalist Kees van der Spek report – see links), the couple were asked to pay a NZ$107 fine.  The journalists say the "helpful" policeman, scolding them for not having a valid driver’s license, offered to avoid any legal entanglements by paying a Rp. 250,000 on-the-spot gratuity.

Only when Soper told the policeman that he and his wife were working journalists and would prefer to pay the official fine did the policeman and a senior officer on the scene let them both go.

Partly because of the largely superfluous requirement for an international driver’s license, two more tourists returned home from Bali with a less-than-complimentary story to share of corruption in Indonesia.

Indonesian Visitors without Valid KTP Refused Entry to Bali at Gilimanuk Port

BaliPost.com reports that in January 2014 officials at the Identity Card (KTP) inspection Post at the westernmost port of Gilimanuk discovered only 115 failures to present a valid KTP.  Of that total, 33 had expired identity cards and 82 had no ID card to show officials.  In the end, port authorities refused entry to 79 domestic travelers allowing 36 to continue on their journey to Bali.

One of the officers assigned to the Gilimanuk KTP Inspection Post, Ngurah Wiguna, told the press on Saturday, January 23, 2015, that people continue to land in Bali with no official identity card, despite efforts to warn people they face the risk of being turned back to Java.

“Maybe they’re just trying their luck. But if they break the rule we will take action against them,” said Wiguna.


Tourism Minister Visits Bali
Indonesian Tourism Minister Thinks Bali Needs a 100,000-person Capacity Exhibition Hall

On one of his first official working visits to Bali the Indonesian Minister of Tourism, Arief Yahya, said that the Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition (MICE) sector forms a mainstay in the Government’s plans to attract 10 million visitors to Indonesia in 2015. To achieve this target, MICE supporting facilities in Jakarta and Bali will continue to need to be enhanced to ensure both destinations become world-class conference and convention destinations.
 
Quoted by Metrobali.com, Yahya said: “MICE movements have progressed to where  around five events come to Bali every day. In terms of facilities, Bali does not yet have a large exhibition hall able to accommodate 50 – 100,000 people. This is an impediment for MICE operators in Bali. An exhibition hall able to handle 100,000 people is being developed at Bumi Serpong Damai (BSD) Tangerang. Hopefully (international) products will be promoted in Indonesia in order that the MICE sector can developed.”
 
The Minister’s comments were made at a discussion with MICE operators held an Taman Nusa in Bali on Thursday and Friday, January 29-20, 2015.
 
The Indonesian Tourism Minister told his audience that his Ministry has four priorities in developing National tourism. First, destination tourism; second, tourism marketing; third, the tourism industry; and four, organizations and the development of human resources.
 
Among these four elements, said Arief, the emphasis will be on tourism marketing that has the potential to bring large numbers of domestic and international visitors via effective promotional strategies. Adding: “This year we are targeting 10 million international tourism visitors and 251 million domestic journeys.”
 
The Tourism Ministry’s marketing strategy will focus on branding and promotion. “Wonderful Indonesia” (Pesona Indonesia) has been adopted as Country Branding. This is supported by destination and thematic branding that will be consistently and persistently be applied via both online on offline modules.
 
The Minister explained that the promotion of Indonesian tourism would cover the entire milieu of digital options including mobile applications, digital campaigns, interactive campaigns, and virtual marketing (e.g. Facebook, twitter, Youtube and blogs). Offline marketing will embrace methods that include advertising in thematic magazines, lifestyle magazines and strategic media placements.

In addition, Indonesia will participate in consumer shows (B2C), consumer promotions, sales missions, road shows and familiarization trips.
 
The Ministry representing the Government has pledged cover 100% of the cost and task of branding, while advertising with be on a 50-50 cooperative basis between the Government and the private sector. 100% of the cost of actual selling will be borne by the tourism industry.
 
During the Minister’s visit he traveled to the north coat village of Pemuteran and nearby Menjangan Island. Pemuteran has earned a worldwide reputation and awards for its pioneering work in community-cased reef restoration. This success has fueled Pemuteran’s growing popularity as a snorkeling and diving destination.


A Toothless Tiger
Minister of Transportation Order to Ban Overloaded Trucks from Entering Bali Remains Unenforced in the Face of Defiant Truck Drivers

DenPost reports that a visit on Thursday, January 29, 2015, by Commission III of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) to the Port of Gilimanuk allowed the legislators a first hand glimpse of the efficacy of recent efforts to forbid overloaded good trucks from traveling on Bali’s roads and highways.
 
Led by Commission chairman Nengah Tamb and accompanied by fellow commission members Nyoman Suyasa and Wayan Adnyana, the lawmakers were received by the chief of the Cekik Gilimanuk Weigh-Station, I Wayan Aryana.
 
At the weigh-station the group was able to see firsthand that the Minister of Transportation’s order to refuse entry to Bali to all overloaded goods truck is not, as promised by the Minister, being strictly enforced.
 
An average 400 goods trucks arrive from Java at the Port of Gilimanuk each day, with an estimated 50% known to be overloaded.

Ayana told the legislators: “We are only issuing tickets. We tried to be strict and make trucks overloaded by more than 25% return to Java. But the drivers protested and blocked the road causing a long traffic jam.”

As reported earlier by Balidiscovery.com, the angry truck drivers refused to turn back to Java and threatened to burn the weigh station to the ground.
 
Records kept at the Gilimanuk weight station for 2014 shows 150,253 trucks were weighed. From that total 15,491 (10.31%) were determined to have violated rules. These figures broken down further show 380 broke administrative rules, 2051 were overloaded and 949 exceeded their stipulated outside dimensions.

An Epidemic of Death
Governor Calls for Detailed Study of Suicide in Bali

NusaBali reports that Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika is recommending that a comprehensive study be undertaken on the increasing frequency of suicides on the Island. The Governor is concerned by the high rate of people taking their own lives that Pastika estimates at an average of one each day.
 
“We will work together with academic institutions to make this study. Clearly, what’s needed is a comprehensive review,” said Pastika on January 28, 2015.
 
The Governor wants insights into why people in Bali now find it easy to end their lives. Continuing, Pastika said: “Is it so easy to kill one’s self? Is there some connection with the local tradition of 'puputan' (a fight to the death)?”
 
The Governor wonders if some sort of fatalistic belief is sweeping the Island or if there exists a presumption that problems can be resolved through suicide. “It can’t be economic problems, because some of those (killing themselves) are not people in absolute destitution. Some of the people committing suicide have automobiles,” lamented the Governor.
 
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Bali-Indonesia Hindu Society (PHDI-Bali),  I Gusti Ngurah Sudiana, shares the Governor’s concern with the growing level of suicides in Bali. “The people must not lose hope and kill themselves. This will not end their problems and will only make matters worse,” said Sudiana.
 
From a Bali-Hindu perspective, according to Sudiana, suicide (ulah pati) is a most grievous sin that will see those who die in this manner condemned to wander in darkness and despair for 60,000 years.
 
Balinese belief also brands as sinful anyone who discovers a suicide, assists in handling the body of the deceased, participants in religious ceremonies held on the deceased’s behalf or even anyone accompany the body of a suicide victim to the cemetery.

Deadly Decision to Deal
Young Russian Woman Could Face Death for Smuggling Drugs into Bali

A 26-year-old Russian woman, Magneava Aleksandra, will soon go on trial in Denpasar for trying to smuggle 2.1 kilograms of methamphetamines on December 7, 2014 after arriving on Hong Kong Airlines flight.
 
Customs officers at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport found the narcotics in the woman’s bags.
 
Police investigators completed their preparation of all pre-trial documents and handed them to State Prosecutors on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, which will now allow the case to be brought to trial.
 
It is expected that the woman – who has admitted trafficking drugs throughout Asia – will be charged under sections 113 and 112 of Anti-narcotics law 35 of 2009 that carries a maximum penalty of death.


A Fatal Slippery Slope
Elderly American Dies in Ubud, Bali After Falling into a Deep River Ravine

An 84-year-old American expatriate resident in Ubud, Bali has died after slipping and falling into a river ravine near Subak Juwuk Manis.
 
Dead at the scene was Delmar Ray Yoder of Kalona, Iowa.
 
Workers building a villa last saw the man taking a walk near a riverbank. The workers told police that they shouted out a warning to the man, alerting him to the danger of falling on the slippery rain-soaked path.
 
Yoder was known by local residents to enjoy independent wilderness walks around Ubud.
 
When the elderly American suddenly disappeared from view, workers and villagers rushed to the path and discovered Yoder had fallen to his death down a 25-meter deep ravine.
 
It took Police and local citizens nearly 2-hours to evacuate the man’s body that was then sent to the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar.
 
Police are treating the man’s death as a case of death by misadventure.


Mother May I?
30% of Official Permits Application in Denpasar, Bali Refused

The Bali Post reports that since its establishment in 2008, the One-Stop Denpasar Permit Office (BPPTSP) now receives an average 40 applications each day with 30% of that amount refused due to a failure to meet technical specifications  set forth in the application process.
 
At a meeting between Commission I of the Denpasar House of Representatives (DPRD-Denpasar) with the BPPTSP on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 it was revealed that 14,000 permit applications are filed each year – a number that has increased from year to year since the BPPTSP's establishment in 2008,
 
A.A. Gde Rai Soryawan, the chief of the BPPTSP (shown), said: “From the 14,000 permit applications received each year, around 30% are rejected. The reason is due to technical aspects of the application have not been fulfilled. For instance, permits to build in RHK (restricted zones) cannot be approved. Other deficiencies that can result in a permit being rejected are violations of setback rules from rivers or insufficient parking."
 
In order to facilitate the application process the Municipal government has reduced or eliminated some costs associated with the application process. In fact, since 2012, the only permits requiring a payment are building permits (IMB), disturbance permits (HO – Ijin Gangguan) and permits to sell alcoholic beverages. The BPPTSP also promise that the application process will take no more than 12 days with some applications done in a single day.
 
Permits associated with the operation of small and medium-sized enterprises have been earmarked for the quickest service.
 
IMB permit fees have netted the Denpasar Government Rp. 16 billion (US$1.3 million) in 2014.
 
In response to complaints that the cost of securing an IMB is expensive, Rai Soryawan said that a number of pre-application costs do exist such as permission needed from village administrations.


The Shop with No Beer
Bali Retailers Raise Objections to Coming Ban on Beer Sales at Convenience Stores and Minimarkets

Kompas.com reports that the Indonesia Retail Association (APRINDO) is asking the Ministry of Trade to review its plans to outlaw the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages containing less than 5% alcohol in minimarkets and convenience stores.
 
The ban on the sale of beer and pre-mixed cocktails formed the basis of a Ministerial regulation issued by Trade Minister Rachmat Gobel and set to take effect on April 16, 2015.
 
The deputy-secretary general of APRINDO Satrio Hamid said on Saturday, January 31, 2015, that the coming prohibition is counter-productive. Rules have been put in place at minimarkets and convenience stores to prevent minors from buying beer. Banning the sale of beer from these locations will drive their sale to places less easily monitored and controlled by the Government.
 
Hamid continued: “For another example, in tourist areas there needs to be a special tolerance applied due to the existing market demand. If there existed no existing demand there would not be the present high level of sales. Forbid these sales and it will detract from a favorable investment climate.  Because of this, many local governments and people are demanding these products be available for sale.”
 
A Trade Ministry regulation passed in 2014 already provides that beer and other alcoholic beverages be separated from other non-alcoholic beverages and carry stickers forbidding the sale to people under the age of 21. In a rule that is largely ignored in Bali, the 2014 regulation also stipulates that beer must be located behind counters controlled by sales staff that must hand the merchandise to customers while checking the customer’s identity to ensure minimum age rules are obeyed.
 
Trade Minister Rachmat Gobel is vigorously defending the new rule, insisting the move was only announced after careful consideration and input from various elements of society. The Minister said that minimarkets have mushroomed and are now located in residential areas and in close proximity to schools.
 
Gobel warned that if minimarkets and convenience stores are still selling beer after April 16, 2015 he will not hesitate to revoke their business licenses.
 
There are currently some nine types of alcoholic beverages falling under “Group A” drinks to be banned from sale at minimarkets and convenience stores: beer, lager, ale, bir hitam or stout, low alcohol wine, carbonated alcoholic drinks and Bali Brem.

Dog Gone
Bali Governor Asks that Free-Roaming Dogs be Eliminated

Clearly, Bali’s Governor is fed up with the continuing problem of rabies and untended dogs.

Defending his no-nonsense stance on eliminating Bali’s free-ranging canine population, Pastika said on Saturday, January 31, 2015: “I have been protested  against by angry people from animal welfare association, asking why Bali’s Governor is ordering the elimination of dogs? My response is that Bali has 500,000 dogs and a human population of 4 million. That’s one-eighth or one dog for every eight human beings. Just imagine how difficult it is to care for (so many dogs).”
 
Pastika said that the Government of the Province of Bali has tried its best to control rabies infections resulting from attacks by free-roaming dogs.
 
Frustrated and eager to end the epidemic of rabies, Governor Pastika has finally decided that free-roaming wild dogs must be exterminated.
 
“There’s so much rabies. Our money has been depleted just to purchase rabies vaccine (VAR). Please help. If you see a free-roaming feral dog just kill it – eliminate it! Don’t allow them to roam spreading disease. This is dangerous and frightens people. I think the public must guard together,” said Pastika.
 
Perhaps responding to critics from Australia, Pastika compared the situation of dogs in Bali and Australia. He said that in Australia dogs get special care and are guaranteed a healthy diet, a healthy environment and obtain routine care that includes vaccination. Adding, “But in Bali, many (dogs) receive no care, roam freely and live in a mangy condition.”


A Thirsty Airport
Badung Regency Warns Bali Airport Over Unauthorized Use of Ground Water

The Regency of Badung has issued a stern warning to PT Angkasa Pura I – the management authority for Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport for the unauthorized used of massive quantities of ground water.

Bali Post reports that Badung Regent A.A. Gde Agung revealed the warning letters during a visit to the Bali Airport on Thursday, January 29, 2015. A check by the Regent revealed that permits to tap into ground water for use during the renovation and construction of the new airport have now expired, but the Airport continues to use ground water in massive quantities.

The letter sent by the Regency to PT Angkasa Pura calls on the Airport to urgently commence cooperation with the Provincial Water Board (PDAM) to curb the use of water taken from bore wells. PDAM Tirta Mangutama insists it is able to meet the water needs of the airport without resorting to the use of ground water.

According to Bali Post, letters sent by the Regency to the Airport Authority have gone unanswered.

The wells being used by PT Angkasa Pura I number 10 units – all unauthorized. 2 of the 10 well have no permits at all, with the remaining 8 holding permits from the Regency that expired on April 8, 2013.

And, even based on the old and now expired well permits, it is estimated that over the last three month PT Angkasa Pura has exceeded previously established limits by 59.886 cubic meters.

The Regency is warning the airport that it is prepared to forcibly close all the illegal wells if corrective measures are not soon initiated.

During an earlier inspection in December 2014, the co-general manager of the Bali Airport, I Gusti Ngurah Ardita, justified the presence of the wells as needed for garden and grass irrigation and for use by the airport's fire-fighting department.


The Sky is Falling
Man in East Bali Killed by a Falling Durian

NusaBali and DenPost report the death of a 49-year-old Karangasem, East Bali man allegedly killed by a falling durian.

The fragrant durian can way several kilograms and is surrounded by rock-hard sharp spikes (duri = thorns or spikes) that give this fruit its name. Falling from a height and striking an unsuspecting passerby a durian can be as deadly and medieval flail (shown) swung by a knight errant.

On Tuesday, January 27, 2015, the body of I Komang Supandi (49) was discovered in a field by a passing schoolboy at 7:00 am.  Police theorize that Supandi was struck by a falling durian at 7:00 pm the previous evening. A severe head wound and the position of a nearby durian served to strengthen suppositions of “death by durian.

Supandi’s body was removed to the Sanglah General Hospital to undergo an autopsy and confirm the man’s died from being struck by a foul-smelling projectile and not due foul play.

For Solemen Foundation Helping Children is Kids Play

More than thirty disabled and disadvantaged children enjoyed a day of fun joy courtesy of Bali’s Soleman Foundation at a private villa in Canggu lent for the occasion by a Soleman supporter.
dren were able to play games, create their own art, enjoy face painting, frolic in the magnificent pool – escaping the privations and difficulties that shape their daily lives.
 
Solemen is a non-profit organization that helps poor and disabled children by providing crucial health care and assistance for the physically and mentally disabled.
m>Solemen provides housing, food and educational assistance – they also provide moments of fun that are part and parcel of their aim to provide holistic care to those in need – and Solemen see having fun as a huge part of it.

During the fun day out on Saturday, January 31, 2015, the Solemen team hosted many of the children they help on a daily basis. These included children suffering from developmental delay, cerebral palsy, skin conditions and other children currently undergoing diagnosis. Some of these children who have been recently added to the number of people they help had never before even seen a swimming pool and were clearly overjoyed and thrilled with the day.
men hold these regular ‘Fundays’ to provide disadvantaged children with a distraction to their every day routines. These special days also enable parents to meet others experiencing similar issues and know they are not alone, as well as being able to discuss varying ways to deal with their situations. It’s been demonstrated that the Fundays have a huge effect on the lives of the children and their children.
 
Solemen’s Founder Robert Epstone said: “One of the reasons we do it is because there is more to helping people than just giving them medical care and therapy. Fun is an important part of any child’s life and their development. We are so pleased we can give them and their families these memories”.

The day was supported by a number of local businesses including MTrans Transport and Ray White Paradise Property Group

Serenity Eco Guesthouse shared the cost of nutritional healthy food for the day.

Shown on Balidiscovery.com are pictures of Soleman’s day out with the kids.

When Parents Won’t be Parents
Editorial: 14-year-old Unlicensed School Girl Dies While Operating a Motorbike in Gianyar, Bali

Once again, another child has died on Bali roads – the victim in equal parts of unskilled driving, parental neglect and the failure of Bali Police to enforce the traffic rules as they are written.
 
On Thursday, January 29, 2015 a 14-year-old schoolgirl Ni Kadek Diah Hayuni was killed instantly when a motorcycle she was driving in Batubulan collided head on with a car coming in the opposite direction driven by Dewa Nyoman Suparta.
 
At the time of the accident, Ni Kadek Diah Hayuni was carrying as a pillion passenger another 14-year old girl Ni Kadek Dian Oktarina. Neither girl was wearing a helmet and Hayuni, at 14 years of age, was operating a vehicle without a valid drivers license.
 
According to the Bali Post, Hayuni was trying to pass another motorcycle when that she clipped that bike, causing her to lose control, and weaved into an oncoming lane where she stuck a vehicle driven by Saputra.
 
Hayuna died at the scene while her passenger sustained only minor injuries.
 
Singing what has become a familiar song in the growing tally of underage children killed on Bali roads while operating motor vehicles, AKP Hery Supriawan of the Gianyar Police Precinct said: “We suggest that parents supervise their children and not allow them to operate motorcycles. Although parents grant some flexibility to their children, there should be strong supervision, especially in the cautious use of the bikes and the need to always wear a helmet.”
 
Meanwhile, junior high schools across Bali, where nearly 100% of the students are under the age of 17 that is the legal minimum age for obtaining a drivers license, are surrounded by hundred of parked motorcycles driven illegally to and from the school each day.
 
Based on these all-too-numerous  incidents, it is unlikely that the parents of Ni Kadek Diah Hayuni will be formally charged with contributory negligence in the death of their daughter for allowing her to illegally operate a motorcycle on the public highways.

Australian Lecturer on Wealth Accumulation Found Dead in Bali Budget Hotel

Borsje Warren a 42-year-old man from the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Brighton was found dead in a budget city hotel room on Monday, January 26, 2015.
 
As reported by NusaBali and DenPost, Borsje’s body was discovered face down in room 570 of the Fave Hotel on Jalan Camplung Tanduk in Seminyak wearing only a t-shirt and boxer shorts by a bell boy sent to the room to determine if the room was still occupied.
 
Prescription drugs and an empty liquor bottle were found near Borsje’s body. Reports suggest that the Australian was helped to his room the previous evening in an intoxicated state.
 
Borsje was an internationally known public speaker who traveled the globe as a lecturer on personal success, property investment and wealth accumulation. The hotel in which he was staying offers rooms starting from US$27 per night.
 
Police estimate that the man had been dead between 12-24 hours when his body was discovered at 8:00 pm on January 26th.  Dried blood was noticed in Borsje’s mouth.
 
Police theorize the Australian may have died of a drug and alcohol overdose and have requested permission to conduct an autopsy to more clearly determine the cause of death.
