Islamic Youth Threaten Bali Consulate

Islamic Youth Movement Threaten to March on Australian Consulate in Bali if Australian PM Response to Bugging Deemed Inadequate

(11/24/2013) Speaking in Bali on Saturday, November 23, 2013, the Deputy Secretary General for International Relations for the Moslem Youth Movement (GPI), Donny Arman, threatened sweeping operations will be launched against Australians in Indonesia if Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s formal reply to Indonesia complaints about eavesdropping fails to meet the expectations of the Indonesian public.

Quoted by Metrobali.com, Donny Arman warned: “We await to hear the contents of the letter from Australia. If the answer is unsatisfactory, we will take strong action by conducting sweeps against Australians."

Arman was in Bali speaking at the installation of the Bali Board for the Islamic Youth Movement in Bali.

Separately, he called on the Indonesian President to be firm in dealing with Australia, saying the problem extended well beyond electronic surveillance and touched upon Indonesia’s standing within the international community.

Addressing his comments to President Yudhoyono, who was also in Bali attending an international Conference, Arman said GPI would act if the President failed to do so.

Meanwhile the chairman of GPI-Bali, Nur Arianto, said the government was late in reacting to the eavesdropping by Australia. Arianto said the Bali membership of GPI would march on the Australian Consulate General if Australia’s response to Indonesia’s complaints is deemed inadequate.

“We will take to the street. We will organize our members and occupy the Consulate General of Australia if Australia’s response is unsatisfactory,” threatened Arianto.
