(2/23/2014)

In response to the arrest and subsequent confession of a Balinese crewmember on to assault, rape and attempted murder against a female passenger on Holland’s America Nieuw Amsterdam cruise ship, Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika says case surrounding Kutut Pujayasa (28) does not automatically reduce the image of Balinese working as ship’s crew.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said: “The Indonesian workers abroad are counted in the thousands, if one behaves in this way, that’s human nature. This can happen to anyone.”

Pastika’s comments were made at his monthly open house held on Saturday, February 22, 2014.

The Governor said the case surrounding Pujayasa will not necessary influence foreign cruise companies' readiness to employ Balinese crewmembers.

“What matters is that in the future we need to equip those joining foreign cruise ships in such a way that they will not commit such acts,” said Pastika.

The governor, who once worked as Bali’s chief of police, acknowledged that Ketut Pujayasa faces a complicated and serious legal situation, adding: “Rape and attempted murder are not simple matters, what’s more on board a ship.”

The governor said his office would be coordinating closely with the Indonesian Department of Foreign Affairs to help Balinese involved in criminal proceedings abroad.

Reflecting on the situation facing Pujayasa, Pastika reminded the Balinese working overseas to avoid drunkenness, gambling, lewdness and fighting during their overseas assignments. Adding, “If our Balinese sons and daughters working on ships get involved with drinking and gambling, they will have no savings when they leave the ship.”

Speaking to Balinese presently working overseas, Pastika said: “Remember that you have families you have left back home. The cost of going overseas was not small, causing some of you to borrow against your rice fields.”
