Deadly Southern Latitudes
South Western Beach of Bali Witness to Three Deaths Over a Three-Day Period

Three deaths in as many days have shaken otherwise peaceful South Bali as reported by Radar Bali.

The decomposing body of an unidentified man was found on in the early morning of Tuesday, March 11, 2104, on the shore of Sawangan Beach, Pandawa by an elderly Balinese fisherman who raised the alarm with the police and nearby villagers. The body was that of a well-built man believed to be a Caucasian, still wearing surfing shorts, and estimated to have been in the water for 3-4 days.

The body has been removed to the Sanglah General Hospital Morgue for forensic examination and identification.

On Sunday night, March 9, 2104, another body, that of American William Cragen (31) was discovered in his rented accommodation on Jalan Pantai Sulubahan. Cragen was found dead on a sofa in his room. The owner of the homestay said the American had mentioned his ill health to staff of the small fmily  inn where he had bee resident over the past week.

The third death was that of a 20-year-old Balinese man, I Komang Adi Putra, who apparently hung himself on Sunday, March 9,  in a seaweed shed on Pandawa Beach. Police say the young man was upset over the state of his personal relationship and sent a girlfriend an SMS picture of the rope he would later use to end his life.


We Interrupt this Broadcast
Radio, Television and Cable Broadcasts to Bali to go Quiet for 24-hours During March 31, 2104 Nyepi Observances

Those planning to escape to one of Bali’s Luxury Hotels to watch movies and TV  over the Nyepi observance on March 31, 2014, when all guests and hotel staff are forcibly sequestered, might consider bringing a book.

In accordance with directives issued by the Bali branch of the Indonesia Broadcasting Commission (KPI), all radio and television stations will cease broadcasting for 24 hours from 6:00 am on March 31 until 6:00 am on April 1.

Cable providers will also shut off their signals during the same period.

Quoted by Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post), I Nengah Muliarta of KPI-Bali confirmed a letter had been sent demanding “broadcast silence” during the proscribed period, 

“Through this letter, we have informed the stations that they should stop broadcasting that day to help Hindu devotees carry out Catur Brata Penyepian.”

Catur Brata Penyepian demands that during the day of silence or “Nyepi” in Bali flames must not be lit (amati geni); activities must not be undertaken (amati karya); journeys must not be made (amati lelungan); and to refrain from indulging animal urges or undertake personal entertainments (amati lelanguan).

While the suspension of broadcasts on Nyepi is technically a “request” - the broadcasting commission warns that failure to comply with the recommendation could complicate offending stations efforts to renew their broadcast licenses in the future.

The Wretched Refuse of Your Teeming Shores
Tourism Leaders Thinks Quality of Foreign Tourists to Bali should be Selectively Controlled

The Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI-Bali) is urging the government of Indonesian to consider limiting the number of foreign tourists allowed to visit Bali in order to reduce some of the deleterious effects of mass tourism.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, chairman of GIPI-Bali, said, “It’s time that we think about the quality of tourists coming to Bali, let’s not only look at the quantity.”

According to Wijaya, there are many foreign tourists traveling to Bali looking for employment, some are becoming tradesmen, others are opening small warungs (food stalls) and working as illegal guides. Adding: “Not a few of these people are those unable to compete in their own countries; rejects of their native countries,” he complained.

What’s more, he continued, there are foreign tourists being cared for in Bali suffering from mental illness, penniless and without a ticket home. Others, he said, die in Bal destitute with no family connections.

Because of all these factors, said Ngurah Wijaya, Bali’s leaders have to find ways to filter those visiting Bali. “Don’t just look at how much money tourists bring, but also consider how much they will actually spend and the period of stay for their tourist visit,” he said.

Meanwhile, the director of safety for vital objects from Bali’s police headquarters, Commissioner R. Umar Faroq, warned that foreign tourists coming to Bali are not only the victims of criminal activity, but in some cases are also the perpetrators of criminal acts.

Umar revealed that in 2013 there were 78 crimes in Bali committed by foreigners resulting in 83 suspects brought to the justice system.

On the other side of the coin, there were 217 foreigners who were victims of crime resulting from 185 criminal incidents.

Umar extrapolates that in total there were 8,420 criminal incidents in Bali in 2013 or a criminal act once every 64 minutes.

Grease Lightening
PLN and Indonesia Power Working with Environmental Groups to Ameliorate Effects of January 25, 2014 Oil Spill

After prolonged criticism for creating an accidental oil spill that has damaged a portion of Bali’s southern mangrove forest, PT Indonesia Power has guaranteed that leaking oil pipes threatening Bali’s protected mangrove forest would be a “thing of the past” and that they would take all necessary steps to clean up the remaining oil effluent caused by a burst fueling pipe.

That oil leak, estimated at 400 liters of marine fuel oil and high-speed diesel oil, occured on January 25, 2014 and is blamed for killing a large amount of mangrove foliage. A 5,000 square meter area of mangrove was affected by the leak.

A subsidiary of the State Power Board (PLN), Indonesia Power’s manager in Bali, Subawa Putra, told Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) the leak would be “the first and last time” such an environmental disaster will happen in Bali.

Subawa said that Indonesian Power acted immediately after learning of the leak and sprayed oil dispersants to break down the viscous fuels flooding the mangrove forest. ”We acknowledge that the blackening of the mangrove trees was due to the leak. But, upon scrutiny, we found that only 30 trees were dying, although we weren’t allowed to cut them down as they had a chance of surviving,” Subawa explained.

Subawa said his office is working with environmental activists and port authorities to eliminate and remnants of the oil spill. He promised that any dead trees would be replanted.

The leak occurred from old pipes used to unload fuels from ships at Benoa Harbor that were originally installed in 1994. The old pipe network has now been decommissioned with a new transfer system now in place.

Fire Causes Limited Property Damage at Alila Villas in South Bali

Metrobali.com reports that a fire at the Alila Villas near Pecatu, South Bali on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 caused no injuries.

The fire that started at 9:00 am caused limited property damage to furnishings on the ground floor of the Resort’s restaurant.

Fire fighters managed to bring the blaze under control within 2 hours with preliminary investigations suggest the cause of the fire was a short circuit.

The head of the Badung Fire Fighters, I Gusti Nyoman Adnyana put the value of the damage caused by the fire at Rp. 300 million (US$26,000). “Fortunately, the management of the hotel informed us quickly, preventing the fire from causing more damage,” said Adnyana.

Police continue to investigate the fire. Operations at the hotel remain uninterrupted with all services operating for the Resort's guests.


How Peasants Become Landless
North Bali Farmers Suffering Culture Shock as Speculators Prey on Ancestral Land Holdings

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports a village head in the Kubutambahan District of North Bali is expressing concerns that the planned development of a new airport in his area will be socially disruptive on the lives of the people living in his village of Tamblang.

I Nengah Sudharsana, the village chef who also holds a university degree in agricultural studies, said: “Of course, I have to support the government program to develop a new international airport in Buleleng. But Tamblang village is located less than 10 kilometers from the designated location. We don’t want the project to affect our lives here in a negative way.”

Tamblang village is a traditional farming village prosperously producing rice, cloves, coffee cacao and tropical fruits. The village is home to 8,200 residents working primarily in agricultural pursuits.

Sudharsana said news of the proposed airport in North Bali has brought property agents and land speculators trying to persuade villagers to abandon their ancestral lands to outside investors.

The prices being offered are ten times the normal price for agricultural lands, according to Widiastra, a local landowner. Viewing the airport as a political commodity leading up to this year’s elections, Widiastra has thus far refused offers to sell his family’s lands.

Other land owners in the north of Bali have, however, succumbed to the high prices being paid for land and sold their lands.

The proposed airport, to be located in either east of west Buleleng, will require 3,000 hectares of land.

A development expert from Bali, AA Putu Ngurah Wirawan warns of the social disruption that will result from the new airport, saying, “The development of an international airport in one of the old villages in Buleleng will likely shake the present social and cultural condition of the agricultural society.”

He points to the development of a new international airport in nearby Lombok, which he says has resulted in the marginalization of local landowners surrounding the new aerodrome.

Merpati Airlines Missing Deadlines. Government Permits and Licenses May be Withdrawn.

Detik.com reports that Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation is calling on the Minister for State Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Dahlan Iskan to urgently rescue Merpati Nusantara Airlines, in order to prevent the air carrier’s permanent closure.

“Those who can sort this out are not us (Ministry of Transportation), but Merpati itself. We are only the regulators. The BUMN Minister must also bring pressure on Merpati to sort out its affairs,” explained the director general of Civil Aviation Herry Bakti on Thursday, March 13, 2103 in Jakarta.

Herry Bakti added that Merpati is now facing the threat of losing its operating licenses. According to government rules, any airlines that fail to fly for 21 consecutive days can have its Air Operating Certificate (AOC) cncelled.

Meanwhile, Merpati has reported to the Ministry of Transportation appealing for 30 days or more before its AOC is yanked.

“There are two types of permits involved: the business operating permit and the AOC. The AOC of Merpati has been frozen for a year, if the shutdown continues we will withdraw it. If there are no flights for a year the business license will also be withdrawn,” said Bakti.

The Ministry is asking Merpati Nusantara for a new business plan, a request that has not yet been met by the Airline.

Bakti said that Merpati has asked for more time to create a business-restructuring plan, warning the deadlines for the airline to recommence operations are not negotiable.

Resistance to Change
Illegal and Dishonest Money Changers Spur More Demands for Police Action

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that the Association of Money Changer (APVA) is again calling on local authorities, Bank Indonesia officials and the police to close down unregistered moneychangers.

Past calls for the authorities to clamp down on illegal moneychangers have gone unheeded.

Referring to the illegal moneychangers, Suparta, an advisor to APVA, said: “They will continue to operate if there is no firm action from the authorities. Their number has even increased, with some new players.”

The call for law enforcement action is happening against the backdrop for numerous reports of trickery and fraud by moneychangers, including the now infamous undercover report done by a Dutch TV journalist catching several moneychangers in the act of defrauding foreign tourists.

Suparta mentioned a recent case where a guest staying in a Kuta hotel who lost US$262 from a dishonest moneychanger who, when confronted by hotel staff, returned the money to the tourist. Added Suparta: “It was only one reported case. I’m sure there were a lot more victims that did not report it. If the perpetrators could get Rp 3 million from one victim, imagine how much they could reap from many others.” 



The chairman of the Bali Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD), Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati, has joined the call for tougher enforcement citing the need to protect Bali’s image as a tourism destination

The chairman of the Indonesian Tourism Industry Association (GIPI – Bali), Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya cited the role of local communities, mentioning how the community of Sanur ejects illegal moneychangers whenever such businesses are discovered. Similarly, Sanur does not tolerate beggars, scavengers and hawkers working the streets of their neighborhoods.

State Prosecutors Investigate Allegations of Prosecutorial Mishandling of Assault Case Against Owner and Manager of Feyloon Restaurant in Kuta

NusaBali reports that although the assault case against the owner of the Feyloon Restaurant, Wong Yu Fai (45), and its manager, Frederick Wong Fei Wah (45), has ended with a conviction against the two men, the State Prosecutors office in Bali continues to investigate allegations of irregularities in how the case was handled.

On Monday, March 10, 2014, a supervisory prosecutorial team interviewed the travel agent who was the victims of the attack, Hendra Haryanto and Rusli Budi Jaya, and their lawyers, I Gusti Ngurah Artana and Wayan Mudita.

Reports filed against the Denpasar lead prosecutor who handled the case center on the passive way he allegedly handled the prosecution, his failure to personally attend court sessions and the demand for eight months imprisonment that resulted in a final sentence of the court of only six months.

Artana also clarified his allegations that the public prosecutor improperly intervened in the case by requesting the victim withdraw his report and replace his legal representation.

NusaBali reports that an Australian Patrick Costle (33) repeatedly struck taxi driver Safrudin with a tire iron on Saturday, March 8, 2014.

Costle reportedly hailed Safrudin’s taxi at 10:00 pm on the date of the incident seeking a ride to Jalan Uluwatu I in Jimbaran. The driver and his passenger allegedly agreed a fixed fee for the trip instead of using the taxi’s fare meter.

According to the driver, Costle refused the agreed fare upon arriving at his destination. An argument ensued in which Costle reportedly shoved Safrudin  who took up the cab’s tire iron to strike Costle. Costle reportedly wrested the tire iron from he driver and used it to beat Safrudin.

Safrudin subsequently reported the incident to the police who immediately apprehended Costle.

According to the head of the criminal division of the Kuta police precinct Wahyu Setyo, after a meeting between the two men was held at the police station both peacefully agreed to not pursue the case before the police or the courts.

Hello, Wisconsin!
Are Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis Headed Back to Bali to Get Married?

The International Business Times is reporting that Hollywood actors Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis may son be heading to Bali to tie the matrimonial knot.

Moreover, the Hollywood gossip mill suggests that Ashton and Mila are planning to spend a cool US$2.5 million on a luxurious seaside villa location and chartering aircraft to bring 50 or so of their glamorous friends to witness the union.

The two have had a long-standing relationship that commenced during the filming of That 70s Show, between 1998 and 2006, where they played characters Michael Kelso and Jackie Burkhart. In the interim Kutcher married and divorced actress Demi Moore.

The rumored Bali wedding will be the first for Kunis.

If the wedding comes off, it will be something of a homecoming for the couple that spent a romantic holiday in Bali in August of 2012.

Mila Kunis has recently been photographed wearing a diamond engagement ring.

The date and details of the Bali wedding have not been disclosed.

Kunis, who is at 30 and is the new “face” for Jim Beam Bourbon, may have to delay any plans to start a family with Kutcher. The lady expected to travel the world with an elegant glass of bourbon in hand would have a hard time fulfilling  that role given the widely held viewpoint that pregnant women should not drink.

The Reluctance to Ride the Bus in Bali
Expert Identifies Better Routes and Batter Bus Stops Essential to Attracting the Public to Use Bali Sarbagita Bus System

Public transportation in Bali, such as Bali’s Sarbagita Bus System, suffers generally from a lack of popular demand. Brand-new half-filled buses travel down Bali’s highways despite relatively low fares and modern buses equipped with air conditioning.

As reported by Metrobali.com, an expert on public transportation and infrastructure A.A. Putu Ngurah Wirawan, said speaking on Saturday, March 15, 2013: “The reason why people are still reluctant to take the public bus is because of the lack of attention that has been paid to bus stops. For example, on the Tohpati to Nusa Dua route, the bus stops are not convenient for passengers. The bus stop located on the side of the road are very narrow. Passengers waiting for the bus are left standing in the heat and dust created by passing vehicles. This is why people don’t want to ride the Sarbagita Bus System.”

In order to make public transport in Bali more attractive to the public, a new approach using Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is now being put in place where bus stops are being combined with locations shared by hotels, malls and shops to improve the convenience of using public transportation.

Praising the Sarbagita Bus System in general, Wirawan said the routes traveled by the busses do not meet the aspirations of the public and the bus stops in inconvenient and poorly planned locations are combining to dissuade the public from taking the bus.

The Quiet Hilltop at Kintamani
Visitor Numbers to Kintamani Down 15-20% During First Two Months of 2014

NusaBali is blaming coming legislative elections in Bali for the downturn in tourists to Lake Batur and Kintamani.

Since the dawn of the New Year, tourist numbers visiting the cool caldera community at Kintamani to view Lake Batur and the still-active Mt. Batur volcano have been on the decline.

Local observers are blaming the downturn on the legislative campaign culminating in an election on April 9, 2014. Visitors to the area during the period January-February 2014 are estimated to be down 15-20% when compared to the same period in 2013.

The chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association for Bangli (PHRI-Bangli), Ketut Putranata, said on Thursday, March 13, 2014 that the downturn in visitors is linked to safety and security concerns surrounding the coming legislative elections on April 9th and presidential elections on July 9th.

Putranata is pessimistic that Nyepi celebrations in Kintamani will do much to help rebuild visitor totals to the volcanic mountain area.

Putranata, who is also an owner of the Lakeview Hotel in Kintamani, believes bookings will start to rebuild after the successful completion of the April 9th legislative elections.

The Titi Banda Statue
relates a scene from the Ramayana in which an epic mythical bridge is constructed. Rama will stand triumphantlt at the center of the monument surrounded by a troop of primate soldiers – all preparing to cross the bridge to the fortress of Alengka, home to King Ravana.

When completed, the Bali Titi Banda Monument will stand 15-meters high.

Bali: Still a Rice Bowl
Bali Rice Production in 2013 Making Island a Net Exporter

The Central Statistics Bureau for Bali (BPS-Bali) recorded an increase of 1.92% in the 2013 production of unmilled dry rice for the island totaling 16,562 tons. The increase yield brought the total rice production of Bali for the year to 822,115 tons of unmilled dry rice.

The police precinct in Malang contacted the police in Klungkung, Bali on Sunday, March 16, 2014, Bali who held the open file on the missing diver.

The body was discovered floating in the ocean near Pulau Sempu, near Malang on March 14, 2014 by local fishermen.

The body bore characteristics police believe identify it as the missing Japanese woman. Members of the missing woman’s family and the Japanese Consulate in Bali are now traveling to Malang to make formal identification.

When discovered, the woman’s head, hands and right foot were missing. The torso was still wearing a diving suit and diving tanks.
