Officially closed and sealed by the Badung provincial government in late May, the Bali Best Western Kuta Resort continues to operate despite the being accused of operating an unlicensed 111-room hotel erected without a building permit and in blatant violation of local zoning laws.

A complaint filed with the police against the hotel’s owners by a special “ad hoc” legal team appointed by the Badung regional government in early June has apparently “stalled.” In order to determine the current status of the police complaint, the regent of Badung, Anak Agung Gde Agung, together with a number of key regency officials, paid a call on vice-chief of the Denpasar police precinct, Putu Mahasena, on Wednesday, August 24, 2011.

As reported by The Bali Post, the Regent and his team held in depth discussions with Mahasena. Said Agung: “Our report was filed on June 6, 2011. Certainly, the Denpasar precinct must have processed our complaint?”

Agung was accompanied by the head of public relations for Badung, Wede Dharmaja, the regency's lawyer Suryatin Lijaya S.H. and the legal staff of the Badung regency. The initial report filed with the police included statements from a number of witnesses substantiating the complaint against the hotel. Questioning the delays, the regency is asking the police if they  require more witnesses to support their complaint?

Mahasena, speaking on behalf of the police, admitted he was unprepared to comment publicly on the case because he has yet to receive a report on who has been interviewed by the police in connection with the complaint. He did, however, assure all concerned that the case was in process.

“This is a technical issue. Of course, the case is still being processed by the criminal division,” explained Mahasena.
