Quoted in the Indonesian-language Radar Bali (8/1), Bali's Chief of Police Irjen. Made Mangku Pastika has joined the chorus of local figures speaking out against the proposed construction of a Java to Bali toll road.
In comments reportedly made at a ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new district headquarters for the Police in Gianyar on Friday, January 7, 2005, Chief Pastika said that while the construction of the proposed toll road connecting Java and Bali would bring economic benefits to Bali, it would also lead to a dramatic increase in criminality on the island. And, for that reason, Chief Pastika is not personally in favor of the proposed project.
