Surf the Internet to Catch Illegal Bali Villas

Bali Police Chief Wants a List of Illegal Villas Offered for Rent on the Internet.

(7/5/2008) Bali's Chief of Police Inspector General Ashikin Husein has issued orders to his subordinates to undertake a complete review of the number illegal villas, including those in Bali's more remote regions.

In tracking down villas operating outside the law, Chief Ashikin's team have been told to scour the Internet where Chief Ashikin says guests are able to find the illegal villas at prices below those charged by competing registered villa operators. As a result of this practice, unhealthy competition has been introduced into the Bali tourist accommodation market and substantial tax revenues needed by the provincial government are lost.

Speaking to NusaBali, the Island's top policeman has called on his officers to be vigilant in collecting data on illegal villas and their occupants. Once complete data is in hand on the extent of the illegal villa operations in Bali he pledges to sit down with the relevant government offices to discuss future steps to halt illegal villa operations.
