The regency of Jembrana in Western Bali is anticipating a massive influx of commercial sex workers on the eve of plans to close the Dolly Commercial Sex Center in Surabaya.

The Dolly Street area holds the dubious distinction of being the largest prostitution center in Southeast Asia.

As reported by Suara Pembaruan, the head of the local law enforcement agency for Jembrana (Satpol PP), I Gusti Ngurah Rai Budi, described steps to prevent Surabaya’s prostitution business from relocating to Bali, saying: “We have certainly taken anticipative steps (to prevent an influx of prostitutes), especially in entertainment centers operating in Jimbrana. We will increase residency checks of personal identification.”

Check of ID cards will be undertaken at bars and entertainment centers, boarding houses and hotels, and other places where there are indications of prostitution.

“We are also asking village chiefs to keep record on all new arrivals in their locales and require them to hold a declaration of temporary residence (SKTS),” Bud explained.

Newcomers found to be without the proper identification or discovered to be involved in commercial sex will be returned to their home areas.

A fear that the sex workers of Dolly would move to Jembrana and set up shop was also expressed my Nur Hariri, a local community activist who is concerned about the potential for a contagion of HIV/AIDS. Because of this, Hariri is asking the Jembrana official be diligent in carrying our enforcement operations.
