Bank Indonesia Says Increase in Bogus Rupiah Notes Circulating in Bali

The Jakarta Globe reports an increased amount of counterfeit Indonesian rupiah is now in circulation in Bali.

Based on Bank Indonesia reports for Q1 2014, Ignatius Adi Nugroho who serves as the Bank’s managers for Bali and Nusa Tenggara said, 

“The counterfeit banknotes found in circulation were Rp 100,000 [$9] and Rp 50,000 — smaller banknotes that are rarely seen.”

The Bank recovered 1,064 banknotes during the first 3 months of 2014, 15% more that in the same period of 2013.

Officials blamed the increase on the added cash in circulation during an election year and the cash handouts made by politicians in the practice of illegal “money politics.”

In a separate report, Kompas.com says that the Jakarta Police recently arrested a group of counterfeiters that included a member of a legislator’s re-election campaign team.

Bank Indonesia has commenced a program in Bali to train cashiers and other handling large sums of cash to be better able to detect counterfeit notes.

Provincial Shareholding and Missing Dividends In Bali Hyatt in Sanur Now Under Intense Review

Metrobali.com reports that efforts by a special committee of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) and the Bali office of the National Land Agency (BPN) to clarify the status of provincial property assets intermingled in the assets of the Hotel Bali Hyatt in Sanur have yet to come to a clear accord.

The chairman of the special investigative committee, Made Arjaya, said on Monday, May 26, 2014: “We shall continue to search for the assets of the province of Bali concealed within the Bali Hyatt Sanur. The land holding of the province that have been invested in the Hotel Bali Hyatt have never earned a dividend since their investment in 1971.”

Because of that, he said, his committee must continue its search for the proper documentation that will clarify the location and size of the land assets of the province used by the Bali Hyatt for the past forty years and the money due to province in unpaid dividends.

“We hope to clearly record the assets of the province and who controls those assets at the moment, avoid this matter having to be taken up by the State Audit Board at some point in the future," said Arjaya.

The special committee headed by Arjaya has asked the National Land Agency (BPN) to assist in the search for clarification of the assets now inter-mingled with the holdings of the Hyatt Hotel in Sanur.

The matter of the missing assets of the provincial government of Bali within the Hyatt project surfaced when the hotel decided to close for two years renovation, resulting in disagreements with staff over severance terms. When local legislators took up the cause on the behalf of the affected workers at the hotel, questions were raised asking exactly what percentage of the hotel the province of Bali owns.

The provincial lands used by the Hotel Hyatt Sanur project are believed to exceed more than one hectare. Record keeping by the Hotel since a deal was struck with the Province in 1971 has been unclear and confused, claims Arjaya.

The land was given to the Hotel by the province as the provincial governments shareholding in the project.

Apparently, the hotel has never provided the Province with a shareholders’ report or paid a single dividend to the people of Bali.


Keeping Baliís Tourism Image Clean
Governor Calls for a Crackdown on Illegal Tour and Travel Operators in Bali

The Bali Daly (The Jakarta Post) reports that the governor of Bali, Made Mangku Pastika, has ordered a crackdown on illegally operating tour and travel agencies in Bali, claiming illegal travel operators are damaging the island’s tourism image.

Said Pastika: “We are sometimes too soft. It is time that we be firm. Shut down illegal businesses and arrest the owners if they have violated the law.”

Citing tourism as a major contributor to Bali’s image as a world tourism destination and the “backbone” of the Island’s economy, the Governor alluded to the recent failure of the brakes on a tourist bus that killed four tourists from Mainland China. Adding: “Therefore, the transportation agency will have to check and recheck every tour vehicle, as this is about the safety of tourists.”

Pastika is asking business association to submit their membership lists

Pastika added that business associations would have to submit their member lists and that the media should take it upon themselves to expose illegal companies.

It is unclear what action, if any, will be taken against travel companies operating in grey areas such as tourist information offices and websites selling event management, wedding arrangements and travel without businesses registrations as tour and travel operator.

Bali Drug Trial Continues for Sydney Resident Leeza Tracey Ormsby

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that a New Zealand woman who has been under arrest since February 12, 2014, is now facing the possibility of a 12-year prison sentence for violating Indonesia’s tough anti-narcotics laws.

Leeza Tracey Ormsby, 36, a Sydney resident, was on a Bali holiday at the Villa Askara in Dalung, North Kuta, when she was arrested with 0.3 grams of hashish in her handbag that led police to find another 27.06 grams of hashish and 132,2 grams of ecstasy in the villa where she was a resident.

State Prosecutors are charging the woman with various charges of possession and distributing type-1 narcotics.

Ormsby has claimed the drugs found in the villa were not hers, but leftovers from a drug party held there by its previous tenants. As a result of the woman’s claims, police decided no to charge her with the drugs found in the villa, but only with those in her direct possession.

Ormsby has admitted to police that she is a recreation user drug-user with a predilection for hashish. Marijuana and ketamine. She has also presented evidence that she has been involved in Australian-based drug rehabilitation programs between 2009 and 2013.

A Bali-based psychiatrist has also confirmed the woman to be multiple recreational drug user.

Ormsby’s trial will resume on June 5, 2014.

Shifting Fortunes in Southeast Asian Travel
Bali By the Numbers: Statistical Landscape of Bali Tourism Arrivals Changes in April as Troubles Brew in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam

Foreign tourist arrivals to Bali in April 2014 totaled 274,838 – an increase of 16.49% over April 2014 when 235,027 foreign tourists came to Bali.

Click Image to Enlarge
On a cumulative basis for the first four months of 2014, Bali welcomed 1,106,463 foreign tourists, a 14.90% improvement over the same period one-year before.

Click Image to Enlarge
Extrapolating through the end of 2013 and assuming the 14.90 growth rate is maintained until the end of year Bali can look to achieving something in the order of 3.8 million foreign tourist arrivals.

Major Shifts April Arrivals

Australia –Australian arrivals to Bali remained strong in April. For the first four months of 2014, Australian arrivals hit 280,306 – a number 15.57% ahead of the same four- month period in 2013.

Look for Australian arrivals to get a boost from the coup d’état still underway in Thailand as Australian re-plan their Thai holidays to Indonesia.

At current rates of growth, Bali may end the year with just fewer than 1 million tourist arrivals from Australia.

Mainland China – PRC visitors to Bali remain especially robust at 191,433 visitors through the first four months of the year, increasing 49.86% over 2013 for the same period.

If the current rate of growth continues unabated, PRC arrivals to Bali will end the year at around 580,000.

Chinese visitors to Bali should increase as anti-Chinese riots in Vietnam, a distaste for Malaysia in the unresolved MH-370 disaster and political turmoil in Thailand should send greater numbers of Chinese to Indonesia.

Malaysia – Malaysian visitors to Bali have increased 15.18% to 64,873 for the period January-April 2014.

Japan – After a strong start to the year, Japanese visitors have slipped, down 8.39% for January-April 2014 at 59.815.

Singapore – Singapore arrivals are booming, perhaps as the Island Republic’s predominantly ethnic Chinese populace avoids Thailand and Vietnam.  Singapore visitors to Bali are up 49.53% at 52,385 for January-April 2014.

South Korea – South Korean arrivals have increased 10.14% during the first four months of the year with 44,778 arrivals.

United Kingdom – U.K. arrivals to Bali continue to develop nicely, up 9.81% to 36,279 for January-April 2014. Garuda will commence direct flights from London in September, which could boost numbers even further.

Taiwan – Taiwanese arrivals are now down 7.83% for the first four months of 2014 at 35,506.

U.S.A. – American arrivals are up 7.61% for January-April 2014 at 35,182.

France – French arrivals are up 8.72% for the first four months of 2014 at 32,042.

Germany – German arrivals have increased only 2.62% for the first four months of 2014 at 26,848.

Russia – Russian arrivals have suddenly decreased in April to only 125 visitors. This sudden downturn resulted in a 31.95% decrease in Russian arrivals for January-April 2014 at 24,206.

See the separate related article on Russian arrivals (link below).

India – India arrivals have now surpassed the Dutch market. 23,868 Indians came to Bali in the first four months of 2014 increasing 29.65%.

The Netherlands – Dutch visitors are up 11.64% for January-April 2014 at 20,824.

Bali’s spurt of growth in arrivals is driven primarily from the Asia-Pacific and ASEAN Regions.

Where are the Russians?
Clerical Error or Travel Ban? Where have Baliís Russian Visitors Gone?

Russian arrivals to Bali in April dipped to only 125 after averaging 8,000 each month January – March.

A near 99% decline in arrivals in a single month in the absence of some overt explanation initially sparks suspicions that a statistical error has taken place.

An article in the Moscow Times suggests the Kremlin “new course of self-imposed isolation” is banning a large number of Russians from traveling abroad.

Russians working for the enormous national security apparatus is just one group finding the liberalized right to travel no longer applies.

Writer Vladimir Ryzhkov even suggests that the Putin government’s desire to create a siege mentality and fuel antagonism for the West is behind a curtailment of travel privileges.

During the draconian Soviet era, very many Russians were not allowed to travel. At that time, only the Communist Party could approve exit permits, deny anyone who might reveal state secrets. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russians became one of the world’s fastest growing travel market. But now, Russia appears to be once again closing its borders for egress of its own people.

The curtailment in travel rights is happening in outright opposition to the new Russian Constitution that absolutely guarantees citizens the right to travel freely.

Bans are being imposed on security workers, people who have unpaid loans, have unpaid back taxes, pay alimony or owe fines.

This affects around 200,000 security workers and an estimated 500,000 more under surveillance from the Federal Bailiff Service that keeps watch on people with outstanding debt.

Russia is now considering also prohibiting travel for draft-dodgers and even people who have not paid traffic fines.

Following the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis, the Russian government suddenly included in a ban on overseas travel employees of the Interior Ministry (1.3 million), Defense Ministry (2 million), Federal Prison Service (326,000), Federal Drug Control Service (40,000), Prosecutor General’s office (63,000), Federal Bailiff service (23,000), Federal Migration Service (34,500), and Emergency Situations Ministry (20,000).

All in all, around 4 million Russian civil servants can no longer travel abroad.

By some estimates, some 5% of Russia’s total population is now banned from foreign travel.

Up High Where the Air is Rarified
Third Australian Flight Disruption in Little More than a Month Disrupts Service at Baliís Ngurah Rai Airport

For the third time in little more than a month, an Australian behaving badly on an international flight has been blamed for flight service disruptions at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

The latest incident involved an verbally abusive passenger flying on Jetstar JQ35 flying to Melbourne to Bali on Wednesday, May 28, 2014.

Unable to secure sufficient, qualified service crew to handle the return flight 267 passengers scheduled to fly to Melbourne were forced to spend an unscheduled night in Bali at the Airline’s expense.

Saying Jetstar had a zero tolerance policy toward unsafe and discourteous behavior, a spokesman said,” Our crew are trained to deal with these situations and handled the incident professionally.”

Because of the nature of the incident that traumatized the crew, the return flight from Bali to Brisbane was cancelled and passengers accommodated for one night at Jetstar’s expenses.

Due to the nature of the incident and in the interest of crew wellbeing, a return flight from Bali to Brisbane was cancelled.

All 267 passengers were provided with accommodation in Bali and have been re-accommodated on services departing today.

The May 28th incident followed the diversion to Bali of a Scoot Air flight from Sydney to Singapore on May 14th when a husband and wife altercation on the flight resulted in serious injuries.

On April 25th unruly behavior by 28-year-od Australian, Matt Christopher Lockley, on a Virgin Australia flight from Brisbane to Australia put both the airline and Bali’s airport on a full security alert.

Making Farming Pay in Bali
Bali Seeks to Double Farming Incomes in a Decade

The provincial government of Bali is targeting net incomes for farmers of Rp. 18 million per year (US$1,565) by 2018 – a figure twice the Rp. 9 million earned by agriculturalists in 2009.

The chief of the Farming and Food Crops Service for Bali, Ida Bagus Wisnu Ardhana, said the farmers encompassed by the government’s targets are those working rice terraces, dry rice fields, livestock and including traditional fishermen.

Ardhana told Metrobali.com that the average yearly income of farmers in Bali, based on data provided by the Central Statistic Bureau (BPS), now stands at around Rp. 12 million (US$1,043). Adding, “Hopefully, within four years the target set by the government can be achieved.”

Wisnu Ardhana said one way in which the targeted income could be realized is through improvements in the marketing and distribution system so the prices of produce could be improved. “The main obstacle to improving farm incomes, especially for horticultural products, is the problem of marketing, even though a large demand for their product exists,” he explained.

The government continues to try to facilitate meetings between the farmers and the marketplace for their products in order to improve the negotiating position of those working the land. In these meetings the private sector and other end users of farming products confer with farmers discussing way to improve distribution of product and enlarging the margins paid to the farmers.

Royal Brunei Airlines Resumes Bali Flights in July

After a 10-year absence, Royal Brunei Airlines returns to Bali, Indonesia, starting from July 2014.

The airline of the Sultanate of Brunei will fly between Bali and Brunei four times a week using Airbus A319 aircraft.

The airline pulled out of Bali in 2008 due to a drop in arrival numbers and the lingering threat of a SARS outbreak.

Royal Brunei deputy chairman Dermot Mannion said: “In our latest studies, Bali has emerged a front-runner in providing connections for key markets in London and Dubai, but also for regional destinations like Hong Kong and Shanghai,” he said.

Royal Brunei Airlines is the alcohol-free airline owned by the Sultanate of Brunei.

The travel empire owned by the Sultanate, that includes hotels in various locations around the world, is facing a world-wide boycott from those in oppossition to Shariah Law's imposition in Brunei that will, among others, include punishments, such as the amputation of thief's hands and the execution of homosexuals.

Reigning Cats and Dogs
A Cat and Dog Adopt Each Other in West Bali

While dogs and cats are generally seen as mortal enemies, that is clearly not the case for two animals living in Jimbrana, West Bali.

In the village of Yeh Embang, an adult female Bali Dog owned by Ketut Swiada has lovingly adopted a still-nursing baby kitten.

As reported by Beritabali.com and other media, the adult female known by the name of “Macan” (tiger) has whole-heartedly adopted and is actively nursing the baby kitten called “Si Manis” (Sweetie).

All reports and photos of the two suggest the animals consider themselves a mother-daughter combination, with little or no comprehension that that originate from traditionally separate warring factions of the animal kingdom.

Apparently, Macan, who is 1.5-years-old, had recently given birth to two puppies that died shortly after delivery. Hormonally and emotionally ready for motherhood, the Bali dog immediately took a shine to the tiny kitten given to the household by a neighbor.

Said Ketut Swiada: “Ever since I brought the kitten home, my dog followed it everywhere and began to give its milk to the cat. The two are inseparable from morning to night. The dog keeps seeking the kitten. The dog had just lost two of it puppies. Perhaps she remembers the puppies when it sees the cat.”

The dog is not only eager to nurse the cat, but also reserve part of its solid food for the adopted kitten. Each night the two animals sleep with each other.

Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument 50% Built - Targeted for Completion in 2016

Suara Pembaruan reports that the construction of the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Monument at Bukit Ungasan on the Nusa Dua peninsula is nearly 50% complete.

Nyoman Nuarta, the designer of the monument, confirmed the project is now half-completed with deliveries of statue elements arriving once every three weeks from Bandung, West Java in a convoy of 12 trucks.

Grazing Closer to Home
Bali Farmers Association Wants Imports of Vegetable, Fruits and Meat Controlled

The Indonesian Farmers Association for Bali (HKTI-Bali) is calling on tourism businesses, especially hotels, to be required to absorb 100% of local farm products.

Professor Dr. I Nyoman Suparta, the chairman of HKTI-Bali told Bali Post: “They (the hotels) import a great deal from overseas, but we in Bali also have an agricultural sector that must be protected. One way to do this is by absorbing Bali’s farm produce.”

Suparta claims that the tourism sector in Bali only manages to absorb 50-60% of the products produced by Bali’s farmers.

Bali’s tourism sector, however, does manage to absorb 80% of the poultry and eggs produced on the Island.

“We want that 100% of the (tourism’s) need for agricultural products be taken from local farmers. It should not be like the current situation where many locally produced agricultural products remain unused. For instance, we have a high production level of local beef,” explained Suparta.

Suparta called on the tourism sector not to take cover by citing the weaknesses of Bali’s farming sector. Adding: “I am not anti-import, but we must think more about how to make agriculture and livestock profitable and productive.”

An agricultural expert from Bali’s Udayana University, Putu Anom, said that contracts for the mandatory use of local agricultural products can be made between the Island’s tourism sector and HKTI-Bali, supported by government regulations. Anom added: “Tourists holidaying in Bali also feel deprived, complled to eat products imported from their home countries. Tourism operators must take note. Why not use local produce and fruit in accordance with their seasonality?”

Anom insists that foreign tourists visiting Bali come in search of new flavors and experiences not available in their home country. This curiosity, he adds, extends not only to cuisine, but also includes matters of accommodation, fruits and produce.

Saying that there is great potential for the absorption of local agricultural products, Anom said: “(Use of local products) needs to be supported by regulations limiting the importation of fruit, vegetables and meats. The province needs to make rules requiring the purchase of local agriculture and limiting the use of imported products.”


Baliís Coming Glut of Condotels
Most of Baliís Choice Seaside Property Now in the Hand of Non-Balinese Property Developers

Bali Post quotes a Balinese property investor, I Gede Suardita, observing that the price of seaside property in Bali has “gone crazy” because of the fierce competition by developers to grab up every remaining piece of seaside land in Bali’s south.

As a natural consequence of the "land grab" Suardita is predicting that a large number of condotels will be built along all of Bali’s beaches in the coming few years.

Suardita, who serves as the vice-chairman for the Payments and Taxation Committee of the Bali Branch of the Indonesian Real Estate Association (REI-Bali), emphasized that most seaside lots of land are owned by investors from outside Bali, saying the shoreline from Kuta Beach to Soka Beach is now in the hands of investors. Adding: “We have merely become spectators because we lack the capital. This is even more the case as tourism development surges, further fueling the appetite for business development in Bali.”

The director of PT Ski Land Development, Gede Semadi Putra, also admits that most investors and developers of condotels in Bali originate from outside the Island. At the same time, he concedes that these new investors are helping to power the Balinese economy with their new injections of cash.

Semadi said he hopes Bali’s new investors will follow zoning and building regulations. He also called on the local governments to closely supervise new projects and take stern action when violations are discovered.

A Sunset on High Crime?
Bag Snatchers on Jalan Sunset in Bali Causing Death and Injuries

A 50-year-old New Zealand man suffered a broken wrist  in yet another bag-snatching incident on Jalan Sunset in Kuta.

William Vincent (50) was riding a rented motorcycle on Jalan Sunset when two men on a motorcycle drove alongside and grabbed his leather satchel. The struggle caused Vincent to lose balance and fall from his motorcycle while the two thieves sped off.

As a result of the fall, Vincent suffered a broken left wrist and a number of contusions and lacerations.

The incident that occurred early on the morning of Thursday, May 22, 2014, saw Vincent suffer a loss of nearly US$500 in cash and personal electronic devices.

Police continue to investigate the robbery-assault.

A similar incident on the same road less than one month before caused the death of an 18-year-old South Korean woman.

The Bali Police are urging the management of villas in Bali install CCTV cameras to reduce criminal attacks on the island’s villas.

Mount Sangeang Volcano Eruption Disrupting Eastern Indonesia and Darwin Flights

The eruption on Friday, May 30, 2014 of the Mount Sangeang Volcano – a mid-sea volcanic island north of the Island of Sumbawa – continues to disrupt both domestic and international flights in the region.

The majority of flights operating in and out of Darwin in northwest Australia were cancelled on Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1, 2014.

Darwin airport officials confirmed that domestic and international Jetstar services, and domestic flights operated by Virgin and Qantas were cancelled on Saturday and Sunday.

Fights operated into Darwin by Malaysian Airlines, Silkair and Qantas were also affected by the eruption.

Darwin flight operations appeared to be returning largely to normal on Monday, June 2, 2014 Jetstar resumed all flight to and from Darwin at 4:30 local time on June 1, 2014.

Two volcanic cloud created by the volcano and threatening aviation is moving in a southeasterly direction over the Kimberly’s and Top End of Australia. The clouds affecting Australian airspace measured 14 kilometers across and at its uppermost reach was 50,000 feet high.

A third cloud, northeast of Bali, will not affect Australian airspace but may pose a hazard to some domestic and international flights operating into Bali.

The volcanic cloud that had moved close to Bali on Monday is causing delays and cancellation on some Australian flights to Bali and a number of domestic Indonesian flight to eastern Indonesia.

Denpasar's flight status board on Monday, June 2, 2014, showed many Australian flights delayed or cancelled notices, with the situation changing by the hour.

In Indonesia the volcanic cloud caused Garuda Indonesia to suspend a number of its eastern Indonesian flight. Saturday and Sunday flights and their returns legs that were cancelled included:
  • Denpasar to Labuan Bajo (Flores), Ende (Flores) and Kupang
  • Denpasar to Tambolaka (Sumba) and Kupang
  • Jakarta to Mataram (Lombok) and Kupang
  • Jakarta to Denpasar and Kupang
Members of the public with flights destination in Easter Indonesia or Australia are reminded that the situation remains fluid and travelers should contact the airline involved for the latest update on schedule changes.

No injuries or fatalities have been reported in connection with volcano’s explosion.
