Bali News: Missing the Plot in Bali

(8/7/2011)

A number of Bali media outlets and the national news agency Antara are carrying reports of how a 54 year-old Australian woman has made an impassioned appeal to the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-BALI) claiming she was the victim of property fraud perpetrated by a fellow Australian working from a Bali company.

Larayne Birthisel represented by her lawyer, I Nyoman Nadayana, testified before Commisson I of the DPRD Bali how Glen Michael Robert, a fellow Australian, via the website www.immigrationindonesia.com had persuaded her to invest US$115,000 in a three villa complex on Jalan Batusari in Sanur.

Paying US$115,000 as directed by Robert to another unnamed Australian in December 2010, the woman was allegedly promised both some sort of title on the property and a return on her investment, neither of which have materialized.

Concerned at the lack of news, on September 20, 2010, Birthisel filed a report with the police in Bali. But, due to the lack of any concrete results from the police, the woman and her lawyer are now desperately seeking the help of Bali legislators.

In a separate report in NusaBali, Birthisel’s lawyer complained bitterly to the legislators that a member of the Bali police force had promised to assist and expedite the case on the victim’s behalf in return for a cash payment. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Bali police has denied any malfeasance, saying the case is working itself through the investigative and judicial process.

Expressing his dissatisfaction with the police explanation, the chairman of Commission I of the DPRD-Bali, Made Arjaya, pledged to pursue the matter, saying he was concerned that that the alleged fraud committed by Glen may have also claimed other victims.

Arjaya said he would soon convene a “special committee” (Pansus) to investigate Birthisel’s claims and determine if other players were working behind the scene in the matter that caused a loss to the Australian woman.

Other legislators called on the chief of police for the province of Bali to personally appear before the House and explain the case and its current disposition.

“We will quickly convene a ‘Pansus’ to completely uncover this scandal. We will immediately take action to gather information,” expalained Arjaya.

The website www.immigrationindonesia.com indonesia.com, referred to by Birthisel, when visited was found to be largely dysfunctional. Listed, however,  on the website was a company identity and address for  Bali Business Consultants & Bali Legal Services showing a business registration of 212/22.09/PM/XI/1999.

Meanwhile, the registered owner of the domain www.immigrationindonesia.com  is listed as “The Carousel King” - Ni Komang Yasmini of Jalan Bhineka II, No. 8 Yangbati Kauh Dangri Kelod, Denpasar.

Ni Komang Yasmini is also registered as holding the current or former registrant for a number of other domains related to Bali.

• www.tarotpredictionsguru.com - offering tarot card readings in Bali.
• www.balivillasales.net (offering "adult holidays" and other services in Bali)
• www.baliescorts.net (a commercial sex site offering escorts in Bali now re-registered to a Chinese address)
• www.balihandicraftagents.com (registered to Ni Komang Yasmini under the company name PT Raja Inpestasi)

Other website suggest that Ni Komang Yasmani is an active partner in www.immigrationIndonesia.com and married to Glen Michael Robert.
