Spice Divers Respond

North Bali Dive Operator Says Press Report That They Lacked Licenses and Permits is Incorrect.

(9/14/2009) Spice Dive has responded to reports carried in the Bali Post alleging that the North Bali dive operator was caught without any operating licenses in a recent sweep by officials of the Buleleng Regency. The original report in the Bali Post formed the basis of a report on Balidiscovery.com [See: Bali Dive Operators Asked to Show Their Licenses].

In a letter published on the editorial page of Bali Post, Immanuel Jarakana, on behalf of PT Spice Divers, rebutted the press report listing in detail operating licenses issued in 1994 and 2000 and local site permits issued by local tourism authorities.

In response, Bali Post said their earlier report was based on explanations given by the Chief of Control Division of Bali Tourism Businesses (PUSP), Drs. IGN Darma Arnawa, who reported to the press on the results of a recent sweep of water tourism operator in Buleleng.
