Baliís Illicit Cafť Society
Governor Pastika Wants Road Side Illegal Cafes Closed in Bali to Reduce the Spread of HIV/AIDS

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika is calling on regents across Bali to bring into line with the law informal roadside cafes that serve as covers for prostitution practices and have been linked to increased cases of HIV/AIDS.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said: “Indeed, we have to keep reminding the regents to bring the roadside cafes into conformance with the law; I am sure that most of these businesses do not have licenses.”

Pastika, who prior to becoming Governor served as the Chief of Police for Bali, said he is certain that the regents have not issued operating permits for these informal cafes. For that reason, he wants to shut them down so the spread of HIV/AIDS can be halted.

“There needs to be comprehensive action taken. I have repeatedly said these cafes are sources of HV/AIDS and need to be regulated. The main problem in doing this is because we are dealing with human wants and desires, which is always problematic,” explained Pastika.

The governor has mater-of-factly warned that the spread of the potentially deadly HIV/AIDS virus in Bali is due to unhealthy sex practice and the use of non-sterile needles. Pastika added: “For cases involving intravenous needles this usually traces back to narcotics use. There are almost no cases of HIV/AIDS in Bali linked to blood transfusions in Bali.”

Embracing the elimination of HIV/AIDS as one of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), he asked community leaders to join him in the fight against the disease.

The head of the Bali Health Service, Ketut Suarjaya, said that while official statistics for 1987 until 2013 estimates 8,141 HIV/AIDS cases in Bali, the real figure is probably much closer to 26,000.

The Department of Health is trying to popularize the use of condoms, distributing some 80,000 free condoms targeted on sex workers and their customers.

The provincial administration of Bali have allocated Rp. 6 billion (US$520,000) in 2014 to support a program of voluntary confidential testing (VCD) against HIV/AIDS.

Hindu-Inspired Diplomacy
Bali Governor Seeks to Intensify Relationship Between the Peoples of Bali and India

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika desires to intensify the relationship between the island of Bali with the people of India due to the extensive similarities shared between the Island’s Hindu majority and the people of India.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said: “The many strengths of India are extraordinary. They have a population of nearly 1.3 billion, and a fast developing economy and technology that are quite fantastic.”

The Governor’s comments were made at the launch of the book celebrating Mahatma Ghandhi held in Denpasar on Thursday, November 28, 2013.

Pastika put forth that Bali and India have extensive and intensive connections. Both have majority Hindu populations with the Hindu faith originating in India. In this regard, he said, the roots of Balinese culture can be found in India.

Looking to the future, Pastika is suggesting that benefits would would be derived by sending Balinese children to pursue their educations in India. “What’s more," added Pastika,  "the Ambassador of India has said he wants to the visit the Bali Mandara High School because of his interest in seeing how our poorest children are managing to excel academicallyl."

Travel Agents: An Endangered Species
Bali Association Travel Agent Association Calls for Government Regulation of Tourism Sales

The Bali chairman of the Association of Indonesia Tour and Travel Agent (ASITA), Ketut Ardana, is imploring the government to regulate online travel bookings that are  threatening the livelihoods of many Bali travel agencies.

Concerned at the rapid rate of disintermediation in the travel industry, Ardana says travel agent were anxious as airlines and hotels now deal directly with clients via Internet connections.

As reported by The Jakarta Post, Ardana also complained how many online travel agents are operating without proper permits and licensing.

“The matter of the booming online business was one of the main topics discussed in ASITA’s national meeting in Medan recently. Members lamented their reduced share of the market,” said Ardana.

Saying that many agencies were managing to stay in business only by selling airline tickets, but admitted that, too, was being increasingly threatened by the online presence of air carriers doing business directly with the public.

Ardana said ASITA plans to bring their concerns to the Minister for State-Owned Enterprises in an effort to halt the national air carrier Garuda Indonesia who, in keeping with the practice of the world airline industry, is moving to direct online bookings with their passengers.

Said Ardana: 

“We do not want to halt Garuda’s or other airlines’ online business, but we want to request a special quota, with a margin in price.”

Similar moves are contemplated for hotel bookings with ASITA talking to the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) seeking that they only deal with licensed agents and provide special price consideration.

Arguing for the superiority of business transacted with members of ASITA, Ardana argued: “We are actually more reliable as we do our business face-to-face with customers, while online agents only provide ticket sales and room reservations. The rest is left to the customers. They don’t check to see whether the rooms are as offered, nor do they guide visitors during their stay.”


A Sporting Chance
Governor Pastika Striving to Switch National Sports Week 2016 (PON) from Bandung to Bali

The province of Bali is seeking to be named host to the National Sports Week (Pekan Olahraga Nasional – PON) in 2016.

PON draws athletes in a large number of branches of sports from every province of Indonesia and is held once every four years.

Bali’s intent to seek to host PON in 2016 was announced by the Governor of Bali on Friday, November 29, 2013.

The deputy governor of Bali, Ketut Sudikerta, has been designated to travel to immediately travel to Jakarta to personally declare Bali’s desire to host PON 2016. While there, Sudikerta will undertake consultations with the Minister of Sport and the Minister of the Interior to verify Bali meets all the qualifying conditions to host PON.

As reported by NusaBali, Bali is competing for the right to host the games with the province of West Java, seeking to unseat current plans to hold the event based in Badung.

The last PON was held in 2012 in Riau province. The preparation of facilities for those games and the execution of the games themselves was soiled by a wide-ranging corruption scandal that reached all the way to the Presidenttial Cabinet, with a former Minister for Sports now under investigation by the National Anti-Corruption Agency (BKKN) for malfeasance in the administration of funds intended to be used to host PON in Riau.


Why Canít We Just Talk About It?
Governor Offers Regular and Open Public Access to His Administration as Preferable to Public Demonstrations

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika is recommending that the people of Bali refrain from demonstrating as a means of expressing their political aspirations because his administration has already prepared a monthly open town meetings format for people to deliver their complaints and suggestions.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said on Saturday, November 30, 2013: “It’s not that people are not allowed to protest; that is their human right as citizens and guaranteed to them under the national constitution. But it would be better if people used the channels already prepared for them."

The Governor said that if people feel the need to protest, it would be best if they undertook their protests when they were not attending another activity.

“It isn't as though the Governor doesn’t want to meet with protestors, when, in fact, I always make time available. In this way there is no reason that (protestors) can't meet with the governor and other officials,” said Pastika.

He went on to say that people using his regular open meeting sessions to deliver suggestions, ideas and criticism will get a faster response because of the attendance of the governor, deputy-governor and heads of various provincial department at these sessions.

Continuing his argument, the Governor said; “What’s more, these sessions are broadcast live by Radio Republik Indonesia and on a delayed basis by local television thereby ensuring that more people will be made aware than would happen if a small group demonstrates in from of the Governor’s office and the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali)."

Pastika also underlined that he has never tried to limit who can attend these open sessions held on the fourth Saturday-Sunday of each month.

The governor said he regretted that guards recently did not allow foreign tourists entrance to the open session merely because they were wearing shorts.

“Don’t let people be prevented from attending just because of their attire,” Pastika said.

From the governor’s viewpoint, as long as people are dressed respectfully they are entitled to come and directly discuss a problem at an open session. Adding, “And don’t make people come dressed in traditional costumes.”

The governor has held open town hall sessions with the public since September 2008, commencing from one month after Pastika was elected to office.

A Seat in a Safe Bus
Following a Fatal Bali Bus Crash, Tour Association Chief Wants Bali to Regulate Age and Condition of Tourists Transport

The Bali chapter of the Indonesian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (ASITA) is calling on the government of Bali to urgently create rules and regulations governing the age of transportation used for transporting tourists on the Island.

The chairman of ASITA-Bali, I Ketut Ardana, issued the call shortly after six people, including four Mainland Chinese tourists, died in a bus mishap in South Bali.

“The government has the authority to regulate the age of vehicles using the roadways. However, the maximum age for a tourist bus operating in Bali, as far as we know, is not limited under the current law,” said Ardana quoted in NusaBali.

While admitting accidents can happen at any time, regardless of the age of the vehicle, Ardana added: “But if it can be avoided, don’t use old buses. The bus that fell into the ravine (killing six people) was built in 1994 by Mitsubishi that when the engine failed the brakes no longer functioned.”

Ardana said the quality of a bus used on a tour program is often connected with the price charged for tours, meaning Inexpensive tours make it difficult to provide new buses.

Ardana postulated that the maximum age for a bus used for tourist transport should be put at 15 years, saying that a survey should first be undertaken on the composition of the current bus fleet and its condition. He also suggested that the terrain and conditions in which a bus operates should also be taken into consideration in any decision determining the safe operating profile of a tourist bus.

The most recent accident near Uluwatu that cost the lives of ten people was not the first fatal bus accident involving tourists in Bali. Ardana recalled a bus accident in Kintamani that once claimed the lives of 10 French tourists. There was also a bus accident near Tampaksiring that killed one passenger.

Ardana said there were a number of dangerous roadways in Bali operating on inclines and along deep ravines. The ASITA-Bali chief called on the regencies to improve road conditions in these areas, including roadside barriers.

Two Junior High School Boys Die in West Bali While Illegally Driving a Motorcycle

Two young junior high school boys from Jembrana, West Bali have been added to the growing list of underage children sacrificed on Bali roadways due to the inability of those who supervise them to restrain children from operating vehicles and the police’s failure to enforce traffic regulations.

Life ended for Kadek Agus Setiawan (14) and Komang Agus Putra Sasmita (13) when the two junior high school students collided with the side of a truck at kilometer 87-88 on the Denpasar-Giliamanuk highway on the afternoon of Monday. November 25, 2013.

A Scoopy Honda motorcycle driven by Setiawan attempted to illegally pass a truck on the left side when he struck the side of the moving vehicle. Komang was thrown to the side of the road while Setiawan stayed with his motorcycle as it tumbled down the roadway.

The boys were both residents of a boarding facility for students at the Mendoyo 4 Junior High School. The motorcycle they were driving was owned by the supervisor of the boys’ dormitory, Eka Pramana Dewi (30).

According to Radar Bali, the parents of the boys, upon learning of the accident, became angry with the school for allowing their children to use a motorcycle when the legal age for driving is 17 years.

Those in charge of the dormitory, however, claim the boys took the keys to the motorcycle without permission.

What’s more, Bali’s traditional fishing communities are one of the natural attractions of the Island. Like in Sanur, the fishermen and tourism operators have discovered a shared synergy,” explained Tjokorada.

The PHRI chairman and former regent of Gianyar reminded that hotels built along beaches in Bali are not allowed from monopolizing or blocking beach access under the regulations set forth in the provincial zoning law (RTRWP).

Tjokorda claimed many conflicts over beach usage arise due to miscommunications and encroaching beach erosion shortening the distance between the sea ad the hotel.

The official zoning laws for Bali prohibit the construction of any permanent structure within 100 meters of the high water mark.

The secretary-general of the PHRI-Bali, Ferry Markus, is encouraging fishermen in Bali to approach hotel encroaching on their access to the beach and ocean to seek a win-win solution.


Raising a Stink in Denpasar
Two Main Rivers Flowing Through Baliís Capital are Heavily Polluted

The quality of the water in the rivers that flow through Bali’s capital city of Denpasar are heavily polluted. Tests carried out by the Denpasar environment agency have show both the Tukad Badung and Tukad Ayung to exceed the limits for Class III water.

Indonesia applies four air quality standards:
  • Class I – Water suitable for human consumption
  • Class II – Water suitable as a raw material to be processed into Class Water for human consumption or for designated domestic purposes.
  • Class III – Water that can be used for water recreation purposes, the production of fresh water fish, water for livestock, water for plant cultivation.
  • Class IV – Water designated for watering crops and gardens, urban enterprises, industry and water powered generation.
The chief of the environmental agency for Denpasar, A.A. Bagus Sudharsana, told the Bali Post on Thursday, November 28, 2013, that the condition of the two rivers is a source of concern.

Tests conducted by the Environmental Agency in cooperation with CV Bina Bwana Wisesa in April 2013 found water contaminated with fecal coliform and total coliform.

For the Tukad Badung River the measurement was 930 at the source, 2,400 at the river’s midpoint and 1,400 at the river’s mouth.

For the Tukad Ayung River the readings were 930 at the source, 430 at the river’s midpoint and 150 at the river’s mouth.

The source of the rivers’ pollution is blamed on cloth dying operations and commercial laundries operating along the riverbanks.

Companies operating business along the river are required to have an environmental planning document  (IPAL) detailing how their waste products will be handled.
