Bali Airport Custom and Excise Office Re-declares its Intention to Eliminate Corruption

(12/17/2017) The Jakarta Post reports that Customs and Excise officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport are pledging to create an “integrity zone” and is “corruption free” in all areas connected to Bali’s sole air gateway

Part of the program, according to Customs and Excise Chief at the Airport, Himawan Indarjono, is the intention to impose sanctions on any officer found to be attempting to collect illegal payments. Adding, “The sanctions include dismissal and they could face criminal charges.”

Himawan took pains to explain that the newly declared campaign merely echoes a long-standing commitment by his office to eradicate corruption. Explaining: “We have enforced the procedures needed to create a corruption free zone before today’s declaration. Through today’s declaration, we are expressing our commitment to make our best effort to ensure Ngurah Rai Airport is a corruption-free area.”
