Bali's Chief of Police, Made Mangku Pastika, has called on his officers and intelligence personnel to increase their vigilance as Bali enters the month of October 2004. Quoted in the Indonesian-language Bali Post, Chief Pastika, referring to the approaching second anniversary of the Bali bombing, said, "I do not intend to overemphasize the situation, but terrorists usually seek important moments in order to attract world attention to their activities."

The General's comments were made at a briefing conducted by the police for Bali's local government officials and the island's police force.

Suggesting that the September 9, 2004, bombing outside the Australian Embassy in Jakarta may be linked to the 911 tragedy of 3 years before in the U.S.A., Chief Pastika said, "as we enter October 2004, I ask that the intelligence corps work at their maximum in the field and upgrade their surveillance of areas of potential threat that have been identified by the Police."

In briefing his troops, the General praised the men and women under his command for defying predictions of a restless election process in Bali by managing to help the electoral process run without major incident. He urged all concerned to continue to be vigilant during the coming national transition of power to a new national administration.

The police have distributed 20,000 wanted posters in Bali depicting those still sought in connection with terrorists acts in Indonesia and offering cash rewards of Rp. 1 billion (approximately US$ 110,000) for information leading to the arrest of those sought by police. The posters are being placed at public areas across the island including local boarding houses in cities and villages.

Reminding the people of Bali that the mastermind of the Bali bombing is still at large and the terrorist convicted of the crime are in Bali's prison, Chief Pastika called on all people living in Bali to pay attention to the security situation of their immediate surroundings.
