(3/13/2006)

As reported on balidiscovery.com, [Too Sexy for My Bali] there is widespread opposition in Bali to sweeping legislation on ponography and morality currently under consideration in Jakarta. Measures contained within in the proposed law are seen as failing to protect the interests of minority religious and cultural groupings within Indonesian society, inimical to the overall rights of women, and potentially threatening to Bali's tourism industry.

Public Hearings Wednesday, March 15, 2006

The Provincial Parliament of Bali (DPRD) will be conducting public hearings at the Parliament Building in Renon on Wednesday, March 15, 2006, starting from 11:30 a.m..

The Chairman of the Provincial Parliement, IBP Wesnawa, is seeking widespread input from all groups in Bali at the proposed hearings saying, "We urge the public, community and religious leaders, NGOs and other organizations to submit their written statements on the bill during the hearing"

Wesnawa's appeal for public participation in the deliberative process came following a meeting with two representatives of the Bali's People Component (KRB), I Gusti Ngurah Harta and Ida Pedanda Gede Ketut Sebali Tianyar Arimbawa on Wednesday, March 8th, when they called on the DPRD to take a formal stance towards the proposed pornography and morality legislation.

Wesnawa, who has also invited Bali's Governor to testify at the hearing, has promised that once all opinions have been heard the DPRD will formalize the official stance of the Government and People of Bali to be sent to the House of Representatives and the President.
