Creating a Coral Society
Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Urges Creation of Man-Made Reefs in Indonesia to Enhance Sea Tourism

The State News Agency Antara reports that the newly appointed Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Natural Resources Rizal Ramli views sea tourism in Indonesia as having the potential for being ranked as the best in the world if the natural beauty of the Country’s oceans can be carefully preserved,

“Marine tourism in Indonesia can become the best in the world,” said Rizal to the press at his office in Jakarta on Tuesday, August 18, 2015,

He announced that his office had launched an “Expedition of a thousand coral reefs” publicized by President Joko Widodo on Saturday, August 15, 2015, to enhance the beauty of the Indonesian reefs.

“We will also create ‘apartments’ for fish. In five year’s time, the coral reefs that have become apartments for fish will grow high, and the fish populations will increase meaning fisherman will no longer have to travel great distances in search of fish,” Ramli explained.

The Coordinating Minister said that increasing the coral reefs around Indonesia’s islands would also secure a military advantage for the Nation. Elaborating on this point, Ramli said that any fleet of foreign ships seeking to attack Indonesia would run aground on the newly created reefs. Adding, “If a foreign ship attacked Indonesia and struck the reef, those ships would begin to leak.”

Rizal said that while sea tourism in Indonesia has great potential there are still many shortcomings that must be addressed in order that this sector can grow and develop. Among the items needing attention are local culture and a lack of infrastructure support.

“First and foremost, we need the teach the public to be hygienic. If the beaches are unclean, tourists will not want to come,” Rizal cautioned.

Minister Ramli said he hope Indonesia’s sea tourism would be able to compete in the future with other destinations such as the Maldives and Thailand.

How Dry We Are
Bali Preparing Steps to Deal with Prolonged Dry Season

Bali’s Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) has allocated Rp. 45 billion (US$3.84million) in emergency stand-by funds for use in the event of natural disaster.

As quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the head of Bali BPBD, Dewa Made Indra, said the funds could be used to handle the negative impact of drought and possible forest fires resulting from a prolonged drought.
Plans are now being formulated between the Bali Provincial Social Service Agency, Public Works Department, Provincial Water Board (PDAM) and the BPBD to ensure areas worst affected by the coming drought receive emergency fresh water supplies.

The distribution of fresh water supplies to the affected area will take place once each week.

“Every Friday we will distribute clean water by tank trucks to the village of Julah in Bulelelng (North Bali). On Wednesdays, the trucks will travel to Bangli and Kintanami,” Indra explained.

The BPBD-Bali has developed maps of area that suffer water shortages each year, including locations in the regency of Bulelelng at the sub districts of Tejakula, Sukasada and Gerokgak.

In the regency of Karangasem the worst affected areas are located in the sub districts of Kubu, Abang and Karangasem; in the regency of Bangli the affected sub districts are at Kintamani and Tembuku; and in the regency of Klungkung on the island of Nusa Penida.

Although there are water shortages in a number of areas of Bali, Dewa Indra said that the water shortage was not at crisis levels and still within the capabilities of local officials to handle.

Because of this, BPBD has yet to feel the need to tap into Rp. 200 billion of emergency funding available from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) for dealing with the coming drought.

Agung Patra told the press that the companies illegally employing foreign water sports workers were not paying taxes.

Adding: "In the area of Ahmed Beach and Tulameben there are many foreign workers. The other day I discovered between 5 to 10 illegal foreign workers employed as diving and snorkeling guides."

Unexplained Death
35-Year-Old German Found Dead in Ubud Villa

Forensic doctors at Sanglah General Hospital say they found no evidence of foul play following the superficial examination of the body of a 35-year-old German, Oneirate Ali, who was recently found dead in his room at Kanosari Villa in Ubud.

Dr. Ida Bagus Alit told the State News Agency Antara that while there was no indication of violence on the man’s body, but there were indications that the tourist was exhausted at the time of his death.

Medical experts say that without a complete autopsy it would be impossible to pinpoint the exact cause of death.

Dr. Alit said an autopsy could only be performed with the permission of the deceased’s family or from the German Consulate in Bali.

Oneirate Ali’s body was found in the Kanosari Villa in the village of Petulu, Gianyar on Sunday, August 16, 2015.

The body remains at the Sanglah General Hospital Morgue pending further disposition of the case.

Ruling the Waves by Waving the Rules
Transportation Minister Urges Development of a National Cruise Industry

Indonesia’s Minister of Transportation, Ignasisus Jonan, is urging the Indonesian Association of Ship Owners (INSA) to operate Indonesian cruise ships.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Jonan told the General Assembly of INSA meeting in Jakarta on Thursday, August 20, 2015: “To date, INSA has been more concerned with the operation of cargo vessels. I have always hoped that (someday) they would operate a cruise ship.”

Jonan pledged the support of the government if there was an Indonesian entrepreneur prepared to operate a cruise ship in order to bolster efforts to develop tourism in Eastern Indonesia.

“I leave this all to INSA. Do they want to do it or not? I am only suggesting this because of the large beaches available in Eastern Indonesia." Jonan said.

The Minister said that he would give a license to a ship owner who decided to operate a cruise vessel in Indonesia.

The Minister said that his office would become the partner of the government in developing new means of transportation, regardless of rule regarding cabotage limiting the movement of foreign flagged vessels in Indonesian waters.

“For instance, the number of Indonesian-flagged vessels is limited. Therefore, we can allow the use of a foreign-flagged ship, with cabotage requirements by suspending the rules in this instance if an INSA Member operates the ship. If there’s no ship available, we don't want to hold the best national interest of Indonesia hostage,’ Jonan explained.

Meanwhile, the chairman of INSA, Carmelita Hartoto, said her membership would consider the suggestion from the Government even though the world economic situation remains challenging.

Nonetheless, she said, INSA would develop the cruise passenger sector when the supporting infrastructure, such as suitable hotels in Cruise destinations, was put in place.

Flying in Cleaner Air
Indonesian Government Wants to Reduce Polluting Green House Gas Emissions Caused by National Aviation

The Indonesian Government is committed to reduce the carbon footprint of the national aviation industry. The Minister of Transportation Ignasius Jonan confirmed this fact when he opened the Second International Conference on Green Aviation in Bali on Wednesday, August 19, 2015.

Jonan told the audience that data from the Transportation Ministry shows Indonesian commercial aviation growing 10% each year. “If the aviation industry is growing by 10% annually, then we can assume that gas emissions (from aviation) also grows 10% per year,” he said.

As reported by, Minister Jonan warmed that if the gas emissions from aircraft are not dealt with quickly the earth’s atmosphere above Indonesia will become increasingly polluted. Over time, a heavily polluted environment will also affect Indonesia’s weather and impact also on public health.

Jonan said that recommendations to power aircraft with solar energy are still in their infancy and not a practical alternative at this time as a strategy to reduce green house gas emissions.

At the same time, Jonan said he appreciated other steps now underway to reduce the negative effects of gas emissions from commercial aviation including redesigning airports, new technologies for the treatment of waste and the planting of trees around airports to absorb carbon emissions. And, while all these steps are noteworthy, the Minister insists that much more can be done in the short-term to reduce aviation pollutants, including eliminating unnecessary flights, reducing taxiing time for aircraft and the better scheduling of flights to prevent periods of costly airport congestion.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the National Energy Council, Rachmat Witoelar, told the conference that gas emissions from commercial aircraft constitute 2-3% of all green house gas  pollutions, a share that will only increase as commercial aviation continues to expand.

Witoelar said that most Indonesian airlines are using an older generation of aircraft that are heavier polluters than the newest aircraft now in operation. He is urging Indonesian airlines to acquire fuel efficient, low-polluting aircraft.

State Agencies Declare Flights to Bali and East Java No Longer Threatened by Mt. Raung Volcanic Eruptions

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) has declared that the Mt. Raung Volcano in East Java currently poses no threat to aviation.

As reported by, the head of the public relations division of BNPB, Dr. Sutopo Purwonugroho, the declaration of a reduced threat status from Mt. Raung is the result of coordination with the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) examining the current and predicted future condition surrounding the volcano.

Speaking on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, Dr. Sutopo said: “At the time the (volcanic) activity of Mt. Raung has decreased. The status of the Mountain remains at ‘Level 3.’ But the situation can be described as safe. This is even more the case as regards the effects of volcanic ash on aviation.”

Sutopo said that the tremors from Mr. Raung that had earlier reached 32 millimeters now measure only 2 millimeters. He described the tremors as indicating the rate of intrusion of magma into Mr. Raung,

“Providing nothing triggers the mountain, such as a local earthquake, the low level of tremors shows a stabilized condition,” Sutopo explained.

Sutopo said that air routes, particularly those for Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, the airport in Jember and in Banyuwangi (East Java) are now safe for flight operations, both domestic and international.

“While earlier, the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali and the airport in East Java were forced to close temporarily, they are now very safe. Measures and equipment are currentlyin place allowing immediate warning to be issued to the public (if the situation changes),” explained Sutopo.

Will Taxi Drivers be Called Gondoliers?
Former Bali Lawmaker Wants Elevated Highway to Bisect Kuta and End Traffic Congestion

A former legislator has told that traffic congestion in Kuta can be overcome by building an elevated highway above the Tukad Mati River stretching 5 kilometers with an estimated price tag of Rp. 1 trillion (US$75.2 million).

Wayan Puspa Negara, speaking on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, said: “In order to reduce traffic congestion on access roads to Kuta, an elevated highway atop the Yukad Mati river must be urgently realized. A budget of Rp. 1 trillion with create a 5-kilometer road with a width determined by the contour of the river.”

Puspa Negara, a former member of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), called for the development of Bali’s infrastructure to keep pace with the growth of the Island’s tourism sector.

“The lack of open land,” said Puspa Negara, “can be overcome by using the Tukad Mati River that divides the sub districts of Legian, Seminyak and Kuta. The proposed elevated highway would start in the village of Tagtag and run to Patasari Kuta."

Puspa Negara said a decision to build an elevated highway over the riverbed would save money avoiding the need to purchase land for the road project.

Describing his idea as futuristic and monumental, Puspa Negara said he hoped religious and cultural leaders of Bali could sit down and discuss how the proposed elevated highway could be introduced in Bali.

The Art of the Deal Made in Bali
Trump Hotels Sign Management Deal with MNC Group to Manage Nirwana Golf and Hotel Complex at Tanah Lot, West Bali

The Trump Hotel Collection – the worldwide portfolio of hotels headed by Donald Trump who is a declared candidate for the U.S. Presidency – has reached an agreement with Indonesia’s MNC Group to manage a luxury resort and residential development near Tanah Lot in Bali currently managed by the Pan Pacific Hotel Group.

In rebuilding, re-launching and re-branding the Pan Pacific Nirwana Hotel and Golf Complex – the property will be first Trump Hotel Collection Resort in Asia.

Standing on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean and Bali’s iconic Tanah Lot Temple, the Trump Hotel Collection Resort in Bali will pitch a proven business formula of combining luxury accommodation, championship golf and residential complexes on an Island internationally renowned for its outstanding hotels and resorts. But, however, due to Indonesian laws fobidding gambling, the complex in Bali will not include the casino that forms a part of many Trump Property developments in other locales.

Trump Hotel Collection currently has a portfolio of 14 hotels with new projects opening in Washington, D.C., Rio de Janeiro, Vancouver and Baku.

"As we continue to strategically grow the Trump Hotel Collection, we seek only the world's most desirable destinations. Bali is consistently voted as one of the world's best islands and is one of the best resort and residential destinations globally," said Donald Trump Jr., executive vice president of development and acquisitions of The Trump Organization. "This is an exciting time for Trump Hotels and we are honored to announce our expansion into Asia and bring to market an extraordinary luxury property."

The deal between the MNC Group and Trump Hotels was inked in a ceremony held in New York City on Friday, August 14, 2015 with Harry Tanoesoedibjo, CEO of the MNC Group and Donald Trump, Jr. signing the agreement.

After the signing, Tanoesoedibjo said: "I am personally very pleased to bring the Trump brand into Indonesia. The Trump family's personal involvement and global proven success, is set out to elevate Bali's expectations for 'luxury and excellence'. Alongside our experience as a world-class developer, we are eager to develop the largest and most integrated lifestyle resort destination in Bali."

Established in 1989 the MNC Group engages in financial investments and focuses on 3 business sectors: Media, Financial Services and Property.

Gotta Know When to Hold Them
Bali Immigration Authorities Arrest 47 Chinese and a Taiwanese Suspected of Running an On-Line Gambling Operation from Bali

Immigration authorities at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport have taken 48 foreign national into detention – 47 of whom are from the People’s Republic of China and 1 from Taiwan – for violating visa limitation by operating an on line gambling business.

Comprised of 13 women and 35 men, the group was arrested by immigration officials at a private villa on Jalan Goa Gong Jonis 5 in Jimbaran, South Kita on Thursday, August 20, 2015.

Quoted by, a representative of the Ngurah Rai Immigration office said the case was still under investigation on what is believed to be a trans-national on-line gambling operation.

Officials say when police raided the villa some of those arrested unsuccessfully attempted  to evade arrest by jumping over a 7-meter wall surrounding the villa.

Many of those arrested had no immigration documents while other were able to only present visitor visas.

When the raid took place, a number of computers and communication devices were seized as evidence, including: 35 Chinese brand computers; printers; 85 WiFi connectors; 27 cell phones; 3 telephone boxes; 1 CCTV camera, 59 modems, 41 wireless terminals; 4 flash discs; 2 memory and 26 passports.

Police continue to search for the missing 22 passports for the remaining detainees.

A Bupati Too Busy to Look?
Lawmakers and Regency Officials Appear Reluctant to Take Action Against Recalcitrant Hotel Projects in South Bali

Denpost reports that while Commission II of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung) suspects violations of zoning laws on setback distance from cliffs and the maximum height imitations have taken place at the Kempinski Resort Project on Sawangan Beach at Nusa Dua, officials of the regency’s enforcement team (Satpol PP-Badung) are being very cautious and appear reluctant to order that work on the project be halted.

The head of Satpol PP-Badung, I Ketut Martha, said on Wednesday, August 19, 2015, that his team has yet to take any enforcement action against the Kempinski Hotel project. “On a normative level, they (the project) hold a permit. In connection with suspicion that the building is too tall, this must be looked at by the technical team,” Martha explained.

Martha, who joined a site visit to the project by Commission II of the DPRD-Badung on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, explained further that when viewed from below the cliff on the beachside the building looks very high. He went on to defend the project, saying the hotel was being built using a number detached structures built on a terraced surface. Adding: “If you look from below, (the buildings) clearly looks too high. But looking at the issue from a legal (normative) standpoint, ground level must be measured from the surrounding land of each detached structure.”

Separately, on Wednesday, August 19, 2015, the chairman of the Independent Body for the supervision of Development and the Environment in Bali (BIPPL-Bali), Gede Subudi, demanded the Regent ad interim for Badung, Harry Yudha Saka, fulfill his earlier promise to personally inspect hotel projects accused of breaking zoning and building codes.

Speaking to the press, Subudi said: “Several weeks ago, the acting Regent promised he would urgently visit the site. The reality, however, is that he has only delegated this job to other regency officials. If the acting Regent makes a statement, he should be consistent and act in the manner he promised.”

Subudi said that had the acting Regent visited the site he would have witnessed first hand the actual situation at the hotel and been able to determine if there had been violations of the law or not. This, in turn, would have allowed the Regent to take action if a violation was discovered,

The BIPPL-Bali chairman wants firm action taken against the Kempinski project if violations were uncovered. “If needed, (the project) should be placed under seal and work should stop until everything is in accordance with the law. Let there be no discrimination - regardless of who is the owner; whatever the reason. If the regency laws have been broken then firm actions must be take,” Subudi insisted.

Meanwhile, Made Mangku of the Bali Secretariat for the Rescue and Conservation of the Environment (SKPPLH) remains steadfast that there is apparent chicanery is at play at the Kempinski and Ritz-Carlton projects starting from the permit processing, the building phase and the lack of supervisory enforcement from the Badung Regency. Adding: “From the results of the inspection carried by the DPRD there is the conclusion that three violations have taken place. But, SKPPLH remains convinced that there are five violations of the law that have taken place at the Hotel Kempinski.”

SKPPLH says the five violations have occurred in the areas of building height, set back from the shore line, set back from the cliff face, the coefficient of open land area and the failure to include Balinese architectural finishes.

El NiŮo Predicted to Create Prolonged Drought Conditions in Wide Areas of Bali

The Jakarta Post quotes the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) warning that Bali may soon find itself in the midst of severe drought as the rainy season, expected in October, will be delayed.

BNPB spokesperson Sutopo Purwonugroho warns: "Several areas are experiencing drought in Bali. It could worsen."  He also predicts that water shortages would soon affect Bali, large areas of Java, and West and East Nusa Tenggara.

The Bali BPBD said four regencies in Bali were already experiencing drought conditions: Buleleng (North Bali), Karangasem (East Bali) Klungkung and Bangli.

Official State Weather forecasters (BMKG) say some areas of Buleleng, western Jembrana and south Denpasar are predicted to get no rain for 30 days or more. The situation is even more severe in other area such as some portions of Buleleng, Bangli, Jembrana and South Bandung where rain is not expected for 60 days or more.

Among the areas expected to be the driest are in the popular tourist areas of Kuta, Tuban, Jimbaran and Pecatu.

A strong El Niño weather system may keep large areas of Bali dry through the end of 2015.

"The BMKG predicts that El Niño will affect areas south of the equator. The dry season will be more severe as rainfall will be extremely low until the end of this year," Sutopo said.

A Lack of Noblese Oblige
Member of Denpasar Royal Household Headed to Prison for Property Fraud and Embezzlement

The State News Agency Antara reports that State Prosecutors in Denpasar are preparing to take Cokorda Samirana, a member of a Denpasar (Pemucutan) Royal family, also known as “Ngurah Jambe Pemecutan," to jail in order to begin serving a prison term for fraud and the embezzlement of Rp. 7.6 billion.

The head of the General Crimes division at the Denpasar Prosecutor’s Office, Ketut Maha Agung, said: ‘We have not set a date for taking him into custody, but it will be soon and in keeping with the copy of the Court’s decision we have now received.”

Cokorda Samirana was sentenced to two years in prison in 2012 for fraud and embezzlement in a property transaction. On appeal, that sentence was increased to 2.5 years imprisonment.

A final attempt by Samirana to have the sentence overturned on appeal was rejected by Indonesia’s highest Court.

With no further course of appeal open to Samirana, he must now begin serving his prison sentence.

The criminal acts that have brought the member of Balinese royalty to a prison cells date from 2006 when he offered a 10-hectare parcel of land on Jalan Badak Agung in Renon, Denpasar for sale at Rp. 75 million per are (100 square meters).

The purchaser, Lely, agreed to pay a deposit of Rp. 15 billion in three installments.

When Lely was scheduled to make a second payment of Rp. 7.6 billion to Cok Samirana, he was asked to show the land certificate, a request he studiously avoiding fulfilling.

Later, when the purchaser came to the Notary to make the final Rp. 15 billion payment, Samirana remained unable to PRESENT the land certificate.

Steps were taken by other members of the Royal Household in November 2006 to block the sale of the land on the grounds that it belonged to the Royal Satria Palace.

Lely then sought to obtain the promised land or the return of the money paid to Samarina, both of which were unsuccessful.

In January 2009, Lely reported the Royal Prince to Bali Police in connection with the payments of Rp. 7.6 billion made for the purchase of land not owned by Samirana.

Lely also filed a separate unsuccessful civil action in the Denpasar Civil Court in connection with the fraudulent property deal.

New Rules on Foreign Property Ownership to Require Legal Residency in Indonesia

While the Indonesian property sector is awaiting a formal announcement of specific stipulations of changes promised to permit foreign property ownership, the Agrarian Minister Ferry Mursyidan Baldan has provided at least a preliminary insight on the shape of future rules for foreign land ownership in Indonesia.

Earlier reports in the National press have indicated that rules will be changed to allow foreign nationals the limited right to own a high-end apartment, but forbid ownership of single free-standing dwelling residences on plots of land. quotes Baldan as saying that in order to own a property in Indonesia foreigners must first hold a resident’s permit.

The measure, according to the Minister, is intended to require the foreign national to live in his Indonesian property, prevent foreigners acting a landlords on rental properties, and compel them to dispose of their land in the event he or she no longer holds documented legal residency.

He also said that properties owned by foreigners can be bequeathed to others in their will but the recipient must be to a personal legally residing in Indonesia.

While the government sorts out the technical details of foreign property ownership in Indonesia, the property market for sales to foreigners in Bali remains lackluster with many potential purchasers taking a “wait and see’ attitude before entering into a property transaction.

Added to the factor fueling trepidation by foreigners before entering into a property transaction is a fear that once the rules for foreign property ownership are announced, an appeal will then be lodged with the Constitution Court that has, in the past, firmly rejected any moves to allow foreign property ownership on the grounds that foreign property ownership is in contradiction to the Indonesian Constitution.

Taking a one-year pause in 2014 in deference to national elections, registrations for the 2015 race are stronger than ever with more than 1,200 athletes from some 30 countries expected to participate,

The steady increase in the number of participants in each successive running of the Bali International Triathlon has compelled the organizers of the race to commit to innovate steps to ensure this year's running keeps pace with the growing popularity of the race itself and dynamic growth of Bali’s population and the resulting street traffic.

The 2015 HERBALIFE Bali International Triathlon will feature an intensified program of cooperation with police and community watchmen (pacalang) along all race routes. A sunrise start in 2015 will get the race underway earlier, during a period of reduced traffic flows. Professional race management will also increase the contingent of race marshals and traffic barricades along the entire race route.

The most significant innovation being introduced at the 2015 HERBALIFE Bali International Triathlon is the diversion of traffic away from the Jalan Ngurah Rai Bypass to a detour on the new Bali Mandara Toll Road. During the period when cyclists will be traveling up and down the Bypass between Jimbaran and Nusa Dua, motorists will be allowed to use the Bali Toll Road without charge,

Creating a free-of-charge detour down the toll road and away from the race route is certain to substantially relieve traffic pressure during the race and prevent delays for tourists and locals traveling from Sanur, Kuta, Denpasar to Nusa Dua. While the period of free passage up and down the Bali Mandara Toll will be adjusted in accordance with the actual running of the race, preliminary plans are for the toll road to be open without charge to vehicles from approximately 6:30 am until 9:30 am when the race’s sponsor will pay the cost of toll fees.

Also ensuring a smooth flow of racers up and down the trace course will be the deployment of hundreds of police officers along the race route assisted by pacalang members wearing traditional Balinese costumes.
