Bali Security Council Now Being Formed

Bali's Governor, Drs. Dewa Made Beratha, has issued a formal declaration establishing the Bali Security Council (BKPB), putting into effect a recommendation from Bali's former Chief of Police, General Made Mangku Pastika, made shortly after the October 1, 2005, terorist attack.

Comprised of five separate working groups, the BKPB is charged with ensuring smooth cooperation is maintained between law enforcement agencies in Bali, the military, the wider community and the various government intelligence agencies. The five working groups formed under the BKPB are charged individually with prevention and early detection of crime and terrorism; prevention of crime and terrorism; response and law enforcement; rehabilitation; and evaluation.

Membership in the Security Council will involve participation by the police, military, academics, non-governmental agencies, government bureaucrats, and community leaders – with recruitment of members for each working group now underway.

In accordance with the Governor's instructions, the chief operational post of the BKPB will be held by Bali's Chief of Police, Inspector General Sunarko, assisted by Bali's Vice-Governor, Alit Kelakan.

Funds On Their Way for Recovery Projects

As reported on balidiscovery.com [ See: US$7 Million For Bali Tourism Recovery ], nearly four months after the Bali bombing funds are finally beginning to flow in support a wide range of recovery projects.

In all, some Rp. 93 billion (approximately US$9.8 million) will be disbursed by the Central Government in connection with Bali's recovery including Rp. 67 billion to support tourism promotion; Rp. 16 billion in special security funding for Bali's police; and a remaining Rp. 10 billion for expenditures controlled by the Coordinating Minister of the Economy and the Nation's Immigration service.

Last week, Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik, offered his personal assurances that the promised funds requested by the Bali Tourism Board (BTB) for Bali’s press center, familiarization trips to Bali from the world-wide travel industry and overseas recovery road shows – would all begin to flow in the coming few days.

During the past week, members of the Bali Tourism Board have held meetings with officials from the Central Government to expedite the commencement of all recovery projects.
