Fuel’s Gold
Government Implements Long-Expected Fuel Price Increase at Midnight on Monday, November 17, 2014

Indonesia’s newly installed President Joko Widodo took the long-expected steps to reduce  government fuel subsidies by increasing the cost of premium gasoline from Rp 6,500 per liter to  Rp. 8,500 per liter (US$0.71).

The increase took effect at midnight on Monday, November 17, 2014.

The price of diesel fuel (solar) also increased from Rp. 5,500 per liter to Rp. 7,500 per liter (US$0.63).

The President justified the unpopular increase on the basis of the need to reduce the cost of fuel subsidies in the State Budget in order that funds could be freed up for more pressing social needs that can grow the national economy and benefit the poor.

In Bali hundred of vehicles, predominantly motorcycles rushed to gas stations to fill up their tanks before the clock struck midnight.

The price of kerosene used by many poor households for lighting and cooking purposes remains unchanged at Rp. 2,500 per liter (US$0.21)

Police and security forces were put on alert nationwide in anticipation of mass protests and potential violence. In Yogyakarta a small group of male university student took to the streets in the underwear to protest the fuel increase.

Splitting Hairs
Four Foreigners Arrested and Deported for Working Illegally at Essensual Salon in Kuta, Bali

Four foreign national working at the Essensual Salon on Jalan Oberoi in Bali have been arrested by Bali immigration authorities for immediate deportation.

Discovered working in the salon on visa-on-arrival permits that specifically prohibit any form of employment were: Marina Naloni Bozlee (17- USA), Steven Thomas Gibbs (25 -UK), Nancy May Evans (23-UK), and Nikolas William Thomas Jones (22-UK).
 
The four were charged by immigration officials with working illegally at the salon on dates starting from 10-14 November 2014.

Immigration officials reportedly had a surveillance team monitoring the salon located on the 2nd floor of the Deus Building at 3B Jalan Laksmana Oberoi for five day before sweeping the location and making the arrests.

The arrest took place on Friday, November 14, 2014 at 2:30 pm.

The Esssensual Salon is part of an international chain of beauty salons operated as an off shoot of the well known Toni&Guy network of salons first pioneered by Tony, Sacha and Christian Mascolo in 1997.

In preparing the raid, immigration officials created a dossier including photos, video and immigration documentation substantiating the four were working at the business. After the four’s arrest, immigration officials also conducted interrogations in which the four admitted to working illegally at the Bali salon.

According to Trubun-Bali.com, immigration authorities also filmed the arrest of the four foreigners at the Essensual Salon. Shown to the press, the video reportedly shows the four panicking and trying to hide from the uniformed immigration officers.

An immigration spokesman said Nancy May Evans was deported on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. The remaining three netted in the sweep will be deported once flight tickets can be arranged.

The four received fairly mild sanctions in comparison with the penalties possible under the law. All four will be banned for entering Indonesia again for six-months. Indonesian immigration laws provide for a maximum punishment for a foreigner working illegally outside the terms of his or her visa of five years imprisonment and a fine of Rp. 500 million (US$41,600).

Persons convicted of illegally employing foreign nationals in Indonesia can be punished for between two to fours years in prison and fined between Rp. 100 million and Rp. 400, million (US$33,300).


Pertamina Making Aviation Uncompetitive?
Garuda CEO Openly Criticizes Pertamina’s Monopoly on the Importation of Avtur

Detik.com quotes Garuda Indonesia’s CEO, Emirsyah Satar, speaking at a meeting of Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) in Tokyo complaining at the significant discrepancies in the price of aviation fuel in the Asia Pacific.
 
Perhaps emboldened on the eve of his departure as the man in charge of the State-owned carrier, Emirsyah Satar took aim on the high cost economy created by Pertamina’s monopoly in the import of aviation fuel. Satar openly questioned before his Tokyo audience why aviation fuel (avtur) costs much more in Indonesia than it does in neighboring countries, such as Singapore and Thailand.
 
The Garuda CEO questioned why avtur in Jakarta costs 18% more than it does in Singapore and Bangkok.
 
Satar’s comments were made during the AAPA meeting in Tokyo on Wednesday, November 19, 2014.

Satar extrapolates that because of fuel costs that are 18% more in Indonesia than in neighboring countries the overall cost of operation the National Air Carries is 7.2% higher than it would be with a more competitive pricing regime for avtur. The Garuda CEO estimates that fuel costs account for between 40-50% of the total operating cost of an airline. He also calculates that Garuda Indonesia uses 1.8 billion liters of avtur in a single year.
 
Elaborating and cracking the numbers, Emirsyah Satar said: “The cost of avtur is 18% more expensive (in Indonesia). Just imagine that the cost of avtur represents 40-50% of total operating costs. Thus 18% of 40% means Garuda’s operational costs are 7.2% more expensive. Also imagine this 7.2% against and airlines operating margin of less than 4%.”
 
Emirsyah Satar questioned why the government gave a monopoly on the import of avtur to only one company – Pertamina, when in other countries, such as Singapore, allows a number of companies to import and sell avtur.
 
“As I see it, said Satar, “competition is a good thing.”

A Dozen Years for Homicide
19 Year-Old Male Prostitute who Killed American Paul Latourell Sentenced to 12 Years Prison

On Wednesday, November 19, 2014, Multazam Alawai (also known as Auliawi) was sentenced to 12 years in prison by the Denpasar Court, convicted of the stabbing murder of American expatriate Paul Latourelle on February 16, 2014.

The late afternoon court session saw the rendering of the verdict, that was three years less that the 15 years imprisonment sought by prosecutors, was marked by dramatic outbursts by the Malawi and his family.

Alawi, a student and commercial sex worker, was brought to Latourell’s residence in Denpasar by an accomplice Marsianus Simarto, had earlier purchased a knife in preparation to rob the American. According to testimony presented the court, the young man in the course of a sexual encounter stabbed the American repeatedly, killing him before stealing Latourell’s car and escaping the scene with Marsianus.

Marsianus,  who had favored Latourell with commercial sexin the past, introduced Alawi to Latourell and then waited a short distance from the house during the actual murder, returning later to help steal the dead American’s car.

Emotionally distraught, Alawi’s mother broke down during the court session, insisting her Son was innocent and had only killed the American in an act of self-defense. In the end, the court rejected the boy’s claim based on the circumstantial evidence and the deceased’s community-wide reputation as a gentle character with a non-assertive demeanor.

After hearing the sentence, Alawi may have inadvertently provided those in attendance at the Court with a glimpse into the flawed character that stabbed Latourell more than 50 times. Angered by the punishment that awaits him the boy went on rampage breaking a window at the Court and injuring his hand in the process.

After the sentence was read the State Prosecutors signaled they would accept the sentence while Alawi asked for time to consider an appeal.

Marsianus, charged only with the receipt and sales of stolen goods (fencing), will be sentenced in the coming week. Prosecutors have asked the Court to sentence him with three years imprisonment.

Man of the People
President Joko Widodo Flies Economy to Attend Son’s Graduation in Singapore

In office for only one month, Indonesian President Joko Widodo had an appointment he had to keep: attendance at his youngest son's graduation from the Anglo-Chinese (ACS) International School in Singapore.

Proving once again that he was a man of the people and little concerned with ceremony and the trappings that come with being head of the world’s fourth largest nation, President Widodo and his wife booked economy seats on a commercial flight from Jakarta to Singapore in order to be on hand for Kaesang Pangarep’s graduation day.
 
Expenses incurred by the Republic of Indonesia in connection with President Widodo's one night trip to Singapore were kept to a minimum.

Quoted by Kompas.com, the Presidential Cabinet Secretary Andi Widjajanto explained: “Protocol and security obligations that are attached to the Presidency are paid by the Presidential Secretariat. But the cost (of travel) by President Joko Widodo, his wife and children are a private affair (paid by the President) and are not taken form the operational funds of the Presidential Secretariat.”

Flying economy and commercially with President Widodo was a small detachment of bodyguards and a protocol assistant who job it was to keep the President in touch with the National Palace in Jakarta.

As reported by the Straits Time, President Joko Widodo was greeted by Indonesia’s Ambassador to Singapore Andri Hadi and provided a courtesy car during his visit by the Singapore government.

Wearing a brown batik shirt, President and Mrs. Widodo arrived at the high school graduation ceremony for their son and 146 other students and attended by 600 others. The President, unfettered by his usual heavy personal security detail, readily and generously paused for “selfies” with his Son’s classmates, failing in the process to blend in as just another two proud parents attending their child’s graduation.

Refusing accommodation at the Indonesian Embassy compound, the President booked a junior suite at the Hotel Mandarin Orchard, located a short distance from his Son’s school. According to the website of the hotel, a Regency Suite and Presidential Suite are offered by the hotel with the President opting instead for its humblest suite providing a separate seating area.

President Widodo returned on Saturday, November 23, 2014 to Jakarta flying economy. Upon landing at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta Airport - the de rigueur cloud of security, aides and Presidential motorcade one again enveloped Indonesia’s Chief executive.

Where to Lunch in Ubud
Too Good Not to Share: Warung Teges, Peliatan, Ubud for Outstanding Nasi Bali

One of the most memorable parts of a Bali visit is a lunch that will cost no more than a couple of dollars. “Nasi Bali” that translates into “Bali Rice” is a staple of the Balinese lunch. Simple and simply delicious – Nasi Bali is a plate of white steamedf rice adorned with 3 or 4 Balinese meat and vegetable dishes and a mandatory helping of the condiment Balinese Sambal.

While I have a mental road map ethched on my brain of my favorite Nasi Bali “stops” located across the island that include the incomparable Warung Dani in downtown Denpasar and the several branches of Warung Satria – but, if your doing the mandatory tour of Ubud, be sure to set aside time for a Nasi Bali lunch at Warung  MakanTeges on Jalan Cok Rai Pudak in Peliatan.

Located on the Mas Road leading to Ubud, Warung Makan Teges is a convenient stop and only a couple of kilometers away from the Ubud town center. Look for it on the left on side of the road just before you reach the “T” junction at Peliatan that diverts left toward Ubud or right in the director of Goa Gajah.

An Ubud culinary landmark since the 1960s, Warung Makan Teges first earned fame for its tipat cantok -  compacted packages of rice boiled in coconut leaves that are seasoned with bean sprouts, chili, lime juice and peanut sauce.

Later, in the 1980s, customers’ tastes turned to Nasi Bali that, due to the expert use of Balinese spices – now draws hundreds of diners and take aways every day.

Ibu Desak Made Ngetis who supervised the kitchen in the 1960s is now 85 years old and has handed most of the work and all of her recipes to her daughter Ibu Desak Made Rustini.

In many ways Nasi Bali is a mini rijsttafel with customers able to pick and choose from the day’s selection of Balinese dishes to adorn the rice base. They’ll be tasty satay, lawar, ayam pelalah, tum ayam, urutan and other tempting dishes. All are served on a rattan plate lined with a fresh banana leaf. Because of the variety of choices on hand, Nasi Bali at Warung Makan Teges is easily engineered to accommodate those who dine halal or are vegetarians.

What keeps bringing me back to Warung Makan Teges is its sambal. Hot and spicy with a tanginess that lingers on the palate long after the meal is over, some customer are so enamored by the restaurant’s sambal that they order bottles full to take back home.

The key ingredient in the Warung Teges sambal is “kecicang” or the pink flower of torch ginger (Etlingera elatior).

An exceeding simple dish, the sambal at Warung Makan Teges is made by finely slicing the torch ginger and mixing it with garlic, shallots and terasi – the pungent fish paste - that are fried together to bring out the delicious pungency of all the ingredients.

Roadside Banditry
Villagers between Selat and Sideman Participating in Collection Illegal Retributions from Passing Trucks

Illegal roadside posts with local residents demanding fees from passing trucks between the district of Selat until Sideman are becoming increasing commonplace. 

Demanding payments in the name of the surrounding village, the toll collectors claim the money will be used for the repair and upkeep of local temples.

According to the Bali Post, the regency government has promised to summon those collecting the fees to order that the practice can be stopped.

There are at least 12 illegal fee collection posts between Selat and Sideman compelling trucks carrying sand and soil (Galian C) to "pay up" - with the heaviest concentration bear Sideman.

In some cases, the fee posts are being operated in the name of traditional villages (desa adat) that are not even located on the routes being traveled.

The Regent of Karangasem, I Wayan Geredeg, said he deeply regretted the actions of local citizens demanding fees from passing trucks for temple building projects or repair. Geredeg said fund for such projects were provided for in the regency’s and provincial budget.

Claiming that the regency of Karangasem has taken steps to control the collection of the illegal fees, Geredeg admitted local villagers who persisted in the coercive acts have exasperated him. “I, on behalf of the government, do not agree with the collection of illegal fees for the construction and repair of temples or for local villages.”

The Regent said his office would continue to try to persuade those involved in collecting these fees to cease such practices. If a dialogue does not yield results, he pledged he would send a judicial team to shut the fee collection practices down. “We do not desire to have a conflict with the people. First, we will socialize the matter with the local people. If they continue to collect the illegal fees, we will send a judicial team to deal with it,” added Geredeg.


Prisoners of Paradise
Bali’s Kerobokan Prison Bursting with Inmates While New Prison Construction in Bangli Stuck in Bureaucratic and Funding Delays

An estimated Rp. 27 billion (US$2.25 million) is needed to complete a new penitentiary in the village of Susut near Bangli intended to be used exclusively for drug offenders and to relieve the overcrowding at Bali’s main prison in Kerobokan.

A member of Commission III of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR-RI), Putu Sudiantara, told NusaBali that the Kerobokan prison is now housing nearly 1,000 – exceeding by nearly 300% its original intended capacity of 360 prisoners. Sudiantara commented that the new prison in Bangli has been under construction for a long time and its completion must now be made a priority.

Sudiantara was part a 3-man team from Commission III that visited the Kerobokan prison on Saturday, November 15, 2014 where they discussed prison budgets, repairs at the Kerobokan prison following a 2012 fire, prison vehicles, requirements for prison amnesty and even cells for conjugal visits.

In reviewing conditions at the prison it was revealed that there are no budget allocations available for prisoner transport or medical care. Moreover, the prison apparently has no firearms.

Sudiantara said conditions at the Kerobokan prison were now intolerable with 873 people staying in a prison designed for only 360 people

Snatch Thieves, Catch Thieves
Police Arrest Two Pickpockets Operating on Poppies Lane II in Kuta, Bali

The back roads of Kuta, centering on Poppies Lanes, continue to pose a security threat to Bali holidaymakers.

On Friday, November 14, 2014 a Dutch tourist, Kishan Awadherpersad, was robbed on Jalan Poppies II with the thieves making off with an iPhone 5 worth Rp. 7 million.

Fortunately, a few hours after the robbery, police had taken Abdul Hayi (24) and Sariyanto (27) into custody in connection with the crime.

The robbery took place at approximately 1:20 a.m. as the Dutch tourist was walking the back pathway in Kuta. A group of young men approached the tourist at a location in front of the Bagus Pub, lured by the iPhone carried by the Dutch national.

As the group of young men moved on, the tourist became aware that the iPhone was missing.

Police already stationed in the area to curb crime were able to track down two men and by 5:00 a.m. – less than four hours after the theft, the authorities had two men in custody with the stolen phone in their possession.

Interviewed by the police, the two men, from East Java and Madura, admitted to the crime saying that they hung out at the location until they spotted a potential victim. Abdul would steal the phone and then hand it to Sariyanto to prevent Abdul being caught with the stolen phone in his possession.

Police conducted a search of the boarding house where the two men stay but did not find additional evidence of past crimes. Police, however, continue to investigate, believing the two are linked to other robberies of tourists in the Kuta area.

Both men will now be charged under the Indonesian criminal code with crimes that carry a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison.

Kuta police remind tourists walking the back lanes of the Kuta area to exercise caution.


Imprisoned on Appeal
Supreme Court Send Bali Lawyer Rizaldy Wartuty to Prison for Fraud in a Property Deal

A lawyer in Bali, Rizaldy D. Wartuty (44) has seen the Indonesian Supreme Court alter a lower court sentence and imposed three years in prison for fraud and financial malfeasance amounting to Rp. 37 billion (US$3,08 million) in connection with property transactions he handled on the Island.

In the original court decision it was ruled that the Bali lawyer had not committed a criminal act as charged and the matter was purely a civil or contract law matter.

Bali’s prosecutors were unhappy with the Denpasar Court’s ruling and brought the matter to the Supreme Court who found Wartuty criminally responsible and imposed the three-year sentence.

Prosecutors pleaded before both the Denpasar Court and the Supreme Court that Rizaldy had created two contracts that caused substantial losses to his client, Nicholas John Hyam. Prosecutors also charged the Denpasar lawyer with misusing a power of attorney issued by his client in order to improperly position himself as a nominee in the purchase of land in Bali.

Prosecutors in Bali are waiting for formal copies of the Supreme Court’s decision that will allow authorities to being the lawyer to prison to serve his sentence.


Reducing Fatal Snakebites in Indonesia
Indonesia Needs to Develop a Range of Poisonous Snakebite Serum Vaccines

Dr. Tri Mahawani, an expert in snake bites and toxicology from the Doctor Ramlan Hospital in Surabaya (East Java), told Metrobali.com that Indonesia needs to develop monovalent vaccines as antidotes for poisonous snake bite.

Dr. Mahawani, a specialist in the emergency treatment of snake bites, said: “At this time Indonesia only has a polyvalent snake venom serum (SABU) used to treat all types of snake bites, but not monovalent varieties to be used in the treatment of bites from specific poisonous snake species – even though monvalent serums have been proven very effective.”
 
The doctor said that medical personnel in Indonesia need to undergo training to understand the entire range of snake venoms in order to use monovalent vaccines effectively.
 
“This is the focus of our attention, because at this point there are only 27 people (in Indonesia) with a sub-specialty in snake bites and I am the only doctors with a specialty in toxicology,” explained Dr. Mahawani.

The doctor went on to expose that snakebites in Indonesia are a frequent occurrence. Base on data gathered between 2011-2014 form hospitals in five cities (Malang, Surabaya, Serang, Batam and Merauke) there were more than 200 cases of snakebites each year with 40% of the cases proving fatal.

“This total,” explained Dr. Mahawani, “may be higher because only cases treated at hospitals were recorded, while those at community medical centers (Puskesmas) are sometimes not recorded.”
 
Because of this, Dr. Mahawani is working with The Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and Biofarma to develop monovalent vaccine serums that will form part of a 2015 national science competition. “We are seeking to win the prize of 500 million rupiah  (US$41,600) to pay for research over the coming five years,” she said.
 
The monovalent serum vaccines that will be developed by the team will be for the specific types of poisonous snakes found in Indonesia – necessarily different from those currently produced in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.

Continuing, Dr. Maharani said, “We hope that (Indonesian) medical personnel will possess knowledge, skills and networks in handling snakebites thereby increasing the number of those saved from death resulting from snakebites.”
 
To improve networking, Mahawani and her team will launch in December accounts in the social media for the discussion of how to handle snakebites and socialize  the use of monovalent serum vaccines for use by practitioners, academics and the general public to seeking answersm on questions about poisonous snake bites.
