Ownership Battle Underway at LV8 Hotel in North Kuta, Bali

KabarNusa.com reports that efforts by “certain parties” to forcibly take possession of the LV8 Hotel in North Kuta are being described by the hotel’s owner as an unlawful act.

The most recent takeover attempt began when four Indonesian guests, bearing identity cards from East Nusa Tenggara, checked into two rooms at the hotel on December 13, 2013. The four men’s names are Jongki Fridik Asadoma, Jayakusuma Wagang, Vincensius E, and Abdul Kadir Duka.

The men refused to pay for their accommodation, with Yongki Dale eventually forcibly taking control of the management of the hotel. More men then surrounded the hotel, creating a menacing atmosphere for both the hotel’s guests and employees.

On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, tens of more men, claiming that represented one of Bali’s “mass gangs,” arrived at the hotel’s premises.

One staff member from the security section of the hotel, frightened to provide his name to the press, said on April 17, 2014, “They are still guarding Hotel LV8.”

The resulting tense situation at the hotel has created an atmosphere that is not conducive to for both the old management and guests staying at the hotel.

Lena Chandra is the owner of Hotel LV8 and heads the owning company PT Bali Unicorn operating under the auspices of Singapore-based DC-1 Holding PTE Limited.

Lena told the press that she began to suspect something was at hand when the mysterious guests checked into the hotel, refused to pay and adopted an unsympathetic stance to those working at the hotel.

Lena Chandra appointed the chairman of the Indonesian Association of Advocates (AAI), Humphrey R, Djemat, as her lawyer.

Shortly thereafter Humphrey Jemat began publishing public notices in the mass media declaring PT Bali Unicorn the legal owner of the hotel.

When a group wearing traditional Balinese dress accompanied Humphrey Djemat on a visit to the hotel, Yonngki Dale, who had forcibly assumed the role of managing the hotel, ordered Jemat and his supporters to leave the property.

Meanwhile a company of specially trained peacekeepers from the Badung Police precinct is on stand-by should the situation suddenly escalate.

Humphrey, accompanied by his team of supporters, also paid a coordinating visit with the village chef (perbekel) of Tibubeng who has jurisdiction over the area. Joining that meeting was the head of the North Kuta police precinct Reinhard Habonaran Nainggolan, the Perbekel of Tibubeng I Made Kamajaya and a member of the Badung House of Representatives I Wayan Puspa Negara.

Humphrey said wanted to ask for mediation to compel the group illegally occupying the hotel to pay for their accommodation.

A meeting held between Yongki, who has forcibly assumed management of the hotel, and Humphrey Djemat, allowed Humphrey to present documents demonstrating that Lena Chandra is the rightful owner of the LV8.

In response, Yongki is showing a statement issued by Lena Chandra on February 22, 2014 proclaiming her company would no longer be responsible for services and goods supplied to the Hotel. Yongki contends the statement signifies a capitulation by Lena Chandra to the new management of the Hotel.

Both sides remain at an impasse in the dispute.
