No Longer Untouchable

Following Seizure of 19,000 Ecstasy Pills, Bali Police Chief Says Lawbreakers and Narcotics Dealers in Bali are Never Beyond the Reach of the Law

(6/11/2017) insinuates that the well-known and popular Akasaka Club in downtown Denpasar has long been deemed a “a safe haven” for illicit drug users and narcotic transactions.

Despite a number of coordinated police raids in the past, police failed time and again to discover any illegal drug use on the nightclub located on Jalan Teuku Umar. According to, the Akasaka Club has long been suspected of enjoying “special protection” provided by law enforcement officials in Bali.

Protection of any sort, however, was not in evidence when officers from National Police Headquarters swept into the Akasaka Club on the afternoon of Monday, June 5, 2017, and discovered a massive haul of 19,000 ecstasy tablets.

The seizure of such a massive drug haul and the arrest of the Club’s manager and 3 staff helped put to an end the widely held belief that the Akasaka Club was outside the reach of the law.

The Chief of Police for Bali, General Petrus Reinhard Golose, said: “It was believed the Akasaka was untouchable. The proof (that this is not true) is that the police raid was successful and with me, as Chief of the Bali Police, I have ordered the Club to be closed.”

Anti-narcotics officers from the Police Headquarters in Jakarta continue to investigate the case in an effort to uncover other members of what is believed to be a large nation-wide drug syndicate.

“There is now one outside the reach of the law,” concluded General Golose.
