A decision by the government of East Java to close prostitution centers and the possible implications of that move on the nearby regions of West Bali appears to be a little concern to the regional government of Jembrana, Bali.

The regional administration of Jembrana’s indifference ignores concerns expressed in other quarters that the “sex trade” of East Java will seek a new base of operation in adjoining regions, such as Jembrana.

As reported by, the chairman of Forum for the Resurrection of the People of Jembrana (Forum Kebangkitan Masyarakat Jembrana-FKMJ), Gusti Putu Noder, has warned that a number commercial sex workers will relocate to Jembrana, an area he says is increasingly favored by those in the flesh trade.

Noder said certain areas are likely to be chosen by those relocating their commercial sex trade to Bali. He cited the villages of Delod Berawah, Mendoyo, Baluk, and nearby Negara and Melaya, at the entrance to Gilimanuk, as areas already known for their cafes and houses of prostitution.

Speaking euphemistically, Noder added: “It been proven that in the last week, a number of cafes in Delod Berawah have welcomed a number of new girls as ‘waitresses.’ It is also certain the many of these girls also work as ‘female entertainers.’”

Meanwhile the vice-regent of Jembrana, Kembang Hartawan, on Monday, October 21, 2013, turned a cold shoulder to suggestions that prostitution was due to quickly expand in his region. Hartawan said the regional government does not need to take anticipative steps following the closure of prostitution centers in East Java. Hartawan said that it would still take a long period of time to eliminate and close such centers in East Java.

“Such things are difficult to overcome because the problem of prostitution has existed since the beginning of time and won’t ever disappear. The proof is that the Dolly prostitution center in East Java remains open. Only the hours of operation have been limited. I don’t think any special anticipative steps are needed. It all depends on us,” said the vice –regent of Jembrana.
