Construction of a new prison near Bangli in Bali dedicated exclusively to housing narcotic offenders is now targeted for completion in 2014.

The State New Agency Antara quoted the head of the Bali office of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Asep Kurnia, who said, “We hope that in 2014 the overcrowding at Bali’s Kerobokan Prison can be moved to the Bangli Prison for Narcotic Offenders.”

Kurnia said the Bangli penitentiary is being constructed in phases with the outer wall now being erected.     

Offices and kitchens should be completed this year and prisoner blocks are expected to be completed in 2014.
Rp, 4 billion (US$400) has been allocated in State funds for the construction of offices and a kitchen in the prison facility occupying a 2-hectare plot of land.
Bali’s notorious Kerobokan prison currently houses 982 inmates, a total well in excess of the 323 prisoners accommodated in the prison's original plans. The majority of those imprisoned at Kerobokan are serving sentences or awaiting death before a firing squad in connection with drug offenses.
