Against the background of new terrorism warnings from the National Police saying Bali may be at risk of terrorist attack over the Christmas and New Year Holidays, the director of the National Body of for the Prevention of Terrorism (BNPT), Esa Permadi, has told a Bali audience that the Island is no longer a prime target for extremists.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Permadi recently told an audience in Sanur that Bali is no longer a main target for acts of terror. “The current strong unity and local knowledge (in Bali) not only bars terrorists but also prevents radical acts,” said Permadi.

He continued by saying that since the first Bali bombing of 2002 and the second bombing in 2005, the people of Bali, law enforcement agencies and local neighborhood watch (pecalang) are united to keep Bali safe.

“The BNPT also has joint programs with the public, academics, religious leaders, public figures and the youth to prevent radical thinking,” he said.

At the same time the BNPT caution that Bali is not immune to extraordinary acts of terrorism. “We are at risk if the people and officials let down their guard,” he warned.

The terrorism expert warned that there are still areas of Bali ripe for radical movements including Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi. In these areas he said there are still pockets of radicalism based on research carried out by the BNPT.
