Bali News: Bali Fights Human Trafficking

(6/13/2009)

The Indonesian province of Bali has taken a stand against human trafficking by passing local legislation packing prison terms of up to 15 years and fines of Rp. 600 million (US$58,800) for those convicted of pedophilia, prostitution, marriages of convenience, pimping and slavery.

According to Radar Bali, the provincial criminal law underwent months of deliberation before being rushed through approval before the close of the current session of the Bali House of Representatives.

The new legislation which was originally conceived to be called the "Provincial Law to Against the Commercialization of Women and Children" had its name changed to the "Provincial Law for Prevention of Human Trafficking" when changes in the law were made to include rules against male prostitution.

The Head of the Commission drafting the new legislation, Sutena, said, "this provincial law focuses on efforts to prevent, control and educates on issues related to human trafficking."

The new legislation will adopt a cross-sector plan of attack by confronting both the perpetrators while also assisting the victims of human trafficking. Budgets have been allocated to provide for "safe houses" and enforcement coordination with various national enforcement authorities.

The new rules also provide for identity checks at sea and airports in Bali as a step to prevent the criminal trade in human beings.

Underlining the seriousness of intent of the government, punishments of between 3-15 years in prison and fines between Rp. 120 million (US$11,765) and Rp. 600 million (US$58.800) are provided for those found guilty under the new Bali law.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika, who attended the House Session at which the law was passed, applauded the new legislation saying he hoped that local authorities would prosecute violators to the full extent of the law.
