(6/30/2013)

The theft of 250 sticks of dynamite weighing 50 kilograms on Thursday, June 27, 2013 from a mining truck in West Java has resulted in higher levels of security surveillance by the Bali police.
 
Kompas.com quotes Inspector General Arif Wachyunadi, chief of the Bali Police, speaking at the celebrations in Bali marking the 67th anniversary of the Indonesian police, saying, "I am concerned with the loss of dynamite and we are now inspecting both individuals and vehicles to ensure the explosives don’t enter Bali.”
 
He went on to explain that surveillance has been heightened at all gateways to Bali including the ports of Gilimanuk, Pandang Bai, Celukan Bawang, Benoa and Bali’s international Airport. Checks are also in place at all bus terminals.
 
For added security, police are also keeping a watch on informal ports that could serve as a back door for the explosives to the island.
 
The Bali police are involving community law enforcement and traditional neighborhood watch groups to discern any suspicious individuals or behavior across the entire island.
 
The Bali precautionary steps are part of a nation-wide heightened alert in the wake of the loss of the 50 kilograms of dynamite.
 
The Central Police Headquarters in Jakarta have mobilized Indonesia’s elite Densus 88 Anti-Terrorist Unit to prevent any acts of terror linked to the loss of the explosives.
 
Bali will host a number of important international meetings in the coming months, including the Miss World Competition, APEC, a meeting of the World Trade Organization and the Bali Democracy Forum.

In light of the missing explosives, extensive security measures already in place can be expected to be hitched up yet another notch.
