In the Hot Pursuit of Luxury

Bali Governor Wants Illegal Luxury Cars, Motorcycles and their Owners to Leave.

(5/17/2010) Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has issued a call for unregistered Ferrari sports cars and their owners to be evicted from Bali.

Obviously displeased with the continuing saga of illegally imported large motorbikes and luxury cars that are evading their tax obligations, Pastika issued a firm call for the cases involving illegal vehicles to be followed through to an a final resolution.

"The owners of the Ferrari's are clearly not responsible people, because they do not pay taxes. These people are bold enough to buy (expensive cars) but not to brave enough to pay taxes. They have not purchased legal vehicles," explained Pastika.

Pastika insists that people owning illegally imported Ferrari's, luxury automobiles, and large motor cycles must be brought into line on import duties and road taxes. "If (these people) continue to disobey the law by operating illegal vehicles in Bali, it would be better to throw them off the island," warned the governor.

The Chairman of Commission I of the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), I Made Arjaya, has accepted that the legislature must help put an end to the illegal use of luxury vehicles. Said Arjaya: "Rather than paying off certain officials in order to be allowed to operate their vehicles, it would be better if these rich people just paid their taxes. I support steps by the provincial government to make regulations that will make the owners of the illegal vehicles pay their tax obligations."
