On Wednesday and Thursday, March 27-28, 2003, the Bali Police Force staged a massive demonstration of manpower, equipment and training preparedness in advance of the Bali bombing trials expected to start in late April.
Snipers, anti-riot troops, anti-bomb squads, mobile brigades, and K-9 teams involving over 3,000 police officers launched simultaneous drills at 5 different locations across the capital of Denpasar, including the sites for the coming trial of the 30 suspects charged with involvement in the October 12th bombing of a Kuta nightspot.
The show of force was ordered by the Chief of the Bali Police, Inspector General Budi Setyawan in order to demonstrate the high level of preparedness to meet any eventuality in association with the coming trials.
