Intrigue at Denpasar's Royal Palace?

Denpasar King to be Questioned in Case of Suspected Criminal Fraud by Bali Police.

(3/30/2009) Radar Bali reports that the Raja of Denpasar, Ida Djokorda Ngurah Jambe Pemecutan, also know as Tjokorda Ngurah Mayun Smairana, is facing the threat of criminal prosecution due to a complaint from a local travel agent claiming the "King" has caused damages totaling Rp. 18 billion (US$1.6 million).

PT Maestro Wisatama Indonesia has filed a formal police complaint against Tjokorda following the delivery of an official "somasi" letter seeking settlement from the Denpasar palace.

Tjokorda, a former member of the management board of the Forum Silaturahmi Keraton Se-Nusantara (FSK) - a grouping of royal households from across the Indonesian archipelago, is accused of criminally committing frauds, concealment and the falsification of documents in connection with a planned tour of FSK to Europe March 9-27, 2009. The Denpasar travel agent claims that the failure of Tjokorda to notify them in a timely matter of the cancellation of the tour of Indonesian royalty accompanied by traditional dancers and orchestra, resulted in the loss of money expended preparing the trip and booking deposits made with hotels and airlines.

A source at the Bali police headquarter told the press that Tjokorda would be called for police interviews shortly after the Nyepi celebration period.
