Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
Couple in Suicide Pact at Sanur, Bali Hotel

In an apparent suicide pact, a 49-year-old Singaporean man, CHuan Ko Leong,  is dead and his 24-year-old female companion, Leu Yuesha, from Hong Kong is in critical condition in a Denpasar hospital.

The couple were discovered by Bali police in a room at the Mahagiri Villa in Sanur after being called to the scene by the villa's staff. The workers alerted police after receiving a phone call from the woman’s family in Hong Kong who had just been informed via email of the woman's plans to commit suicide.

Police rushed to the Villa to find the man dead and the woman still breathing.

The names of the deceased and the young woman were not disclosed by police.

At least five kinds of perscription drugs and an empty container of insecticide were found at the scene by police.

Tibunenews.com reports the incident occurred on Thursday, June 12, 2014.



Tourism as a Political Platform
PHRI Chairman in Bali Laments Lack of a Tourism Agenda Among Candidates for Indonesian Presidency

The chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati (Cok Ace) told the State News Agency Antara that he hopes the next Indonesian President and Vice President have an understanding that supports the tourism sector.

“For this reason, whoever becomes president must guarantee safety and security, because these are an absolute necessity for the tourism industry,” said Cok Ave.

The former regent of Gianyar also hoped that the security of the Island of Bali becomes a special concern of Indonesia’s next national leader.

“Bali has contributed greats amount of foreign exchange to Indonesia and tourism has become a staple of the economic life of the people of Bali,” he explained.

Continuing, the PHRI chairman said that the development now underway in Bali appears to be disorganized and uncontrolled. Moreover, he said there were great disparities between the rate of development in the Island’s South and North. “The current competition between accommodation providers is not healthy,” he added.

For this reason, Cok Ace said it should come as surprise to no one that societal problems continue to pervade Balinese life, with many Balinese poor and dependent on begging in order to survive.

He lamented that the two pairs of candidates – Prabowo Subianto and Hatta Rajasa, and Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla – have thus far failed to express a concern for the tourism sector, especially in Bali.


Pants on Fire?
Bali and Beyond Travel Fair Fails to Attract Promised Number of Buyers

The First ever Bali and Beyond Travel Fair (BBTF-2014) at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) June 11-14, 2014 failed to deliver the goods in terms of buyers promised and eagerly awaited by Indonesian hoteliers, tour operators, tour attractions and regional governments who had all invested large sums of money for the right to operate a booth at the event.

Serious, angry questions are now being raised by the Indonesian travel industry seeking to know if they were intentionally misled by BBTF organizers who claimed 601 registered buyers just two days before the event, a number later corrected to 460 with, in fact, only some 233 buyers or less actually attended the Travel Fair. Adding insult to injury, among the scant number of buyers participating at the BBTF-2014, many complained of problems with promised transportation and accommodation.

The chairman of BBTF-2014 and chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Tour and Travel Association (ASITA), I Ketut Ardana, remains apparently unfazed by the growing chorus of  complaints from unhappy sellers. Ardana told Metrobali.com that BBTF must continue in the years to come, improving with each passing year.

Despite the BBTF-2014 being officially opened by the Director General of Marketing from the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy and Bali’s Deputy Governor, organizers complained of a lack of financial support from the provincial government of Bali.

In response, the Deputy-Governor Ketut Sudikerta told the press that next year’s event would receive support from the provincial budget.

The date for the BBTF 2015 has been set for June 8-13, 2015. The fasting month of Ramadan will commence in 2015 on or about June 18, 2015.

The Tourism Ministry has also promised greater support for the 2nd BBTF in 2015, calling on the organizers of BBTF 2015 to be more creative in how they attract buyers and sellers,

Where do We Go From Here?

Despite the best of intentions by ASITA and the government, next year's BBTF  si likely to prove a very hard sell to Indonesian tourism industry members unless the organizers make some sort of frank acknowledgement and apology for the many shortcomings of the inaugural event and and divulge firm plans run by a team of professional event organizers to set things right in 2015.

Without firm, open corrective steps Indonesian sellers might emulate the behavior of this year buyers and stay away from BBTF 2015 in droves.


Where is Wisnu?
Police Seek Missing Director of Jakarta and Bali Hotel

Wisnu Tjandra, a director of the powerful Artha Graha Group whose holdings include the Hotel Borobudur in Jakarta and the Discovery Kartika Plaza in Bali, remains missing a month after his disappearance was first reported to police.

The Jakarta Globe reports the police have no clue on Wisnu’s whereabouts.

A police spokesman said: “We have issued the announcement, detailing his profile, spreading them to West Java and Central Java. Hopefully people will see them. Those who has ever seen him or may know his location, please contact the number [on the announcement].”

Wisnu has been missing since May 11 when he was last seen leaving his house destined for his office on Jalan Sudirman in Jakarta driving a Toyota sedan. Reports have him spending the entire day at the office, leaving at 10:00 pm.

Wisnu has worked for Artha Graha since 1989 and was promoted to be a director of Jakarta International Hotels & Development in 2012 that operates a number of hotels in Bali and Jakarta.

The company is listed on the Indonesian stock exchange and is seeking to build a bridge connection between Java and Sumatra and a 105-story building in downtown Jakarta.


Lame Duck Legislation
President Pens Decree that Clears the Way for Controversial Reclamation of Baliís Benoa Bay

As his last presidential terms draw to a close, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has takens steps to legalize the controversial reclamation of Benoa Harbor in Bali.

Bisnis.com reports that Yudhoyono has published Presidential Decree No. 51/2014 addressing zoning and land concerning Bali’s capital of Denpasar and the regencies of Badung, Gianyar and Tabanan (Sarbagita).

One of the main points in the decree is a change of the use of a 700-hectare section of Benoa Bay from a conservation zone to become a “cultivation area” subject to reclamation.

The Presidential Decree dated May 30, 2014 is a revision of an earlier decree (No. 45 of 2011) that declared the same areas as a water conservation zone

The revision also changes small islands that were once conservations islands into  a part of the heavily developed Serangan and Pudut Islands.

The new decree eliminates a large position of the Ngurah Rai Forestry Preserve (Hutan Raya Ngurah Rai) that in the earlier decree covered 1,375 hectares.

The latest decree identifies a “new” cultivation zone – known as “Zone P” that is comprised of wetlands and beaches that form part of the Benoa Bay.

Zone P is now stipulated to serve as an area of “public benefit” that can be utilized for sea-based enterprises, fishing, ports, transportation, tourism, economic development, residential purposes, cultural activities and religion.

Zone P  – according to the decree – is the Benoa Bay transected by the new Bali Mandara Toll Way. The Zone includes  the current port of Benoa and the water sports area of Tanjung Benoa.

It is also the areas where international soccer star Christiano Ronaldo – designated as the “official mangrove ambassador” -  a title bestowed on the soccer legend by businessman Tommy Winata, symbolically planted trees in Benoa Bay accompanied by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Winata controls various hotel and property holdings including the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel in Bali and is the founder of the Artha Graha Peduli Foundation.

Widely criticized by local conservationists, including the WALHI Green Earth Group, who questioned the environmental credential of the entire event given Winata’s connections to PT Tirta Wahana Bali International – the business consortium seeking to develop an 831 hectare tract of Benoa Bay into a residential, tourism and F1 race circuit at a total investment value of Rp. 30 trillion.

Initial efforts by PT Tirta Wahanan Bali International to develop the area were thwarted by an earlier presidential decree that declared the project area a conservation zone. That impediment to the project has apparently now been removed by the new presidential decree.

Strong Public Opposition to Presidential Decree

The Bali Post reports community leaders, activists and Bali lawmakers are preparing to meet and map strategies to reject the Presidential Decree via appeal to the Indonesian High Court. Local groups opposed to any reclamation, claiming it violates Law No. 5 of 1990 on the protection of Indonesia’s eco-system that opponents to reclamation contend forbids the redesignation by presidential decree of any areas already declared as conservation areas.

17 Years Instead of a Bullet
49-Year-Old French Man Hears Prosecutors Call for 17 Year in Prison for Smuggling Methamphetamines into Bali

As reported by the Jakarta Globe, State Prosecutors have asked for 17 years in prison for Francois Jacques Giuily, a 49-year-old Frenchman charged with smuggling three kilograms of methamphetamines on January 19, 2014.

Prosecutors, who could have sought the death penalty against the man, told the court Giuily had tried to undermine the Governments anti-narcotics program and the nation’s image as a tourist destination.

Prosecutors also are asking the Frenchman be fined Rp. 10 billion (US$846,000) or, alternatively, spend another three months in jail.

The drugs being smuggled into Bali were found in Giuily’s suitcase after he disembarked a Malaysia Airline flight on a trip that originated in Abu Dhabi on January 19, 2014.

Bali Custom’s officials put the street value of the drugs confiscated from the man at Rp. 6.1 billion.

Giuily is pleading before that court that he only acted as a courier and was offered US$4,000 by a Gambian man to bring the drugs to Bali.

Earlier this year another Frenchman, Thierry Verchere was arrested when a quantity of cocaine was found in his rented North Kuta residence.

Thieves Take $350,000 from Australian Hotel Mogul Staying at South Bali Villa Resort

The Age of Australia reports that Australian hotel mogul David Deague says he was robbed of $350,000 in jewelry, cash and electronic equipment while staying at the exclusive Alila Villas in Uluwatu.

Click Image to Enlarge
In Bali with family and friends to celebrate his 70th birthday, the items went missing on June 3, 2014 from several villas high on a limestone cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean occupied by Deague’s Party.

The thieves may have scaled the 90-degree cliff to avoid detection by the Resorts uniformed security staff. A closed circuit surveillance system covering the surrounding grounds of the villas was not operating when the items went missing.

There were no visible signs of forced entry in the villas occupied by Deague and his guests, Police found no foot marks of tracks that might have been left by thieves approaching from the cliff and gardens, leading some to suggest that a duplicate key may have been involved.

A member of the Deague family said, “"We love Bali and we love the people. This is unfortunate, but it definitely wont put us off coming back."

Deague’s company – Asia Pacific Group heads the Art Series Hotels.

Management of the villas when contacted by The Age were not available for comment.
 


Honoring Baliís Governor
Bali's Governor Receives the Satya Lencana Pembangunan Award from Indonesian President for Dedication to Development

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has been awarded Bali's Governor Made Mangku Pastika a Satya Lencana Pembangunan Award presented for extraordinary service to the Nation in the area of National Development.

Governor Pastika told the press: “This award represents the manifestation of the Central Government’s appreciation for the hard work from all parties in Bali. This is not the result of only my work, but the hard work of the farmers supported by the regional and municipal governments in Bali, the stakeholders and the general public.”

The award to Bali’s governor was made at the opening of the 14th National Farmers and Fishermen’s Week held in Malang, East Java on June 8, 2014

In accepting the award, Governor Pastika said the honor should serve as a starting point and an incentive to make the Bali Mandara program of public welfare for the people of Bali touch the lives of all people living in Bali. All parties, said the governor, should resolve to work more intelligently, faster, more progressively and in a more innovative fashion.

In presenting the award, President Yudhoyono said that what had been done by those receiving this award should become an example for all Indonesians. He urged everyone to work harder to advance the agricultural, fishing and forestry sectors.


To Catch a Thief
Five Security Guards Working at Boarding Gates at Baliís Airport Headed for Prison for Pilfering from Passengers Hand Luggage

Three security guards working at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport have been sentenced to four months prison for theft from passengers’ luggage, while another two guards are still undergoing legal proceedings prior to final sentencing.

According to NusaBali, the story of the successful conviction traces back to GA 718 flying from Bali to Melbourne on December 29, 2013. On that date, Nursahman entered Gate 8 at the airport carrying small handbag, a backpack and a plastic shopping bag.

He was directed to submit his hand luggage for final security screening. Inside Nursahman’s backpack was an envelope containing AUS$3,650 dollars.

Manning the security post were five secyrity officers: Indra Fajrin Nasrullah, Sudarji, Putu Fandy Putra Antara, Anak Agung Alit Permana and Kadek Wirtana Yasa.

As recorded in the trial, the passenger handed his backpack to Indra, while Sudardji inspected his handbag. In the course of the inspection Indra saw the envelope of money and, through some code arranged beforehand, his colleague Sudarji actively questioned the handbag's a contents to distract the man’s attention while the envelope of money was neatly folded away into a glove worn by Indra.

Rushing to the waiting plane, Nursaham was unaware of the theft until he inspected his backpack while the flight was enroute to Melbourne when he reported the theft to Garuda cabin crew.

It was later learned that in a well-rehearsed scenario, immediately after the theft, Indra removed the glove containing the money and allowed it fall to the floor where it was retrieved by Sudardji who transfered and concealed the money before handing Indra back his glove.

Once the plane had taken off, Indra once again took control of the money that he divided up among 6 security guards.

Once the plane landed in Melbourne, Nursaham was interviewed by Garuda Ground staff  who forwarded a detailed report back to Bali.

Subsequent reviews of CCTV footage revealed the modus operandi of the uniformed thieves who were then arrested and handed over to police.

The court handed down a sentence of four months to Indra Fajrin Nasrullah, Sudarji and Putu Fandy Putra Antara on Wednesday, June 11, 2014. Indra confessed to the court that there was at least one other occasion in which he stole money from a passenger’s handbag.

Prosecutors had asked for six months prison for the men.

The two remaining members of the ring of thieves, Anak Agung Alit Permana and Kadek Wirtana Yasa are undergoing a separate trial.

Indra took the Australian dollars to a moneychanger in Sanur where he obtained approximately Rp. 30 million. Miserly in sharing the spoil,s he reportedly only gave Putu Fandy $AU150 and Sudardji Rp. 1,670,0000.


No Ships on Tanah Ampoís Horizon
Reflections in Bali Post on the Failed Tanah Ampo International Cruise Terminal

The Bali Post recently revisited the Tanah Ampo International Cruise Terminal Project in the East Bali region of Karangasem via an article titled “The Regency Remains Optimistic, Local Residents Resigned.”

The report relates the disappointment of the people of the village of Tanah Ampo, Manggis in Karangasem on their government’s failure to deliver on its promise to create a viable international cruise terminal to drive the local economy.

More than Rp. 155 billion (US$13.5 million) of public funds has been expended on building the port that remains uncompleted and off the itinerary of international cruise ships. Similarly, Rp. 600 million (US$52,000) taken from public budgets to build an arts market for visiting cruise passengers has been shifted into a makeshift and poorly attended traditional handicrafts market and public market.

The pet project of the Regent of Karangasem, long-time local residents were more or less compelled to surrender ancestral farming land to make way for construction of the terminal and access roads.

A local community leader, Nyoman Sadra, told Bali Post how land handed over under protest to the Government to build roads to the port were also promised that land titles would be changed without charge by the Regency. In fact, this promise has not been kept with compensation for their ancestral lands unpaid and tax bills for these same lands, now occupied by public roads, being charged to the villagers.

Championed since 2008 by Karangasem’s Regent I Wayan Geredeg as a facility destined to become “the biggest cruise port in Southeast Asia.” Rushing ahead, Geredeg sought to acquire land, build access roads and construct port buildings and other supporting facilities. While this was happening ashore, the Central Government rushed to build a 150-meter long pier.

Sadly, subsequent investigations by State Auditors indicate that the Central and Regional governments have built structures on land to which they hold no title.

The dock built at a high cost with State Funds is inadequate both in strength, length and overall design to allow cruise ships to berth. Floating pontoons, inexpertly built to facilitate the transition of passengers from ships tenders to the new pier have been insufficient to that tasked and washed away in the strong waves striking the shores in East Java. The few ship’s that have tried to land passengers at the Tanah Ampo Terminal have complained about the poor infrastructure and now divert to the better situated and better equipped Port of Benoa in South Bali.

While the Wayan Geredeg as Regent of Karangasem remains optimistic that the plans to make a world class cruise terminal at Tanah Ampo can still be realized, the public continues to live in an atmosphere of relative poverty and unfulfilled promises.

Donít Let the Lights Go Out
PLN Sounds a Warning on Baliís Critical Electrical Supply

Plans to maintain Bali’s critical electrical supply, particularly to the southern regions of the island, may be sidetracked by delays and obstacles in the building of the world tallest high voltage crossing towers between Java and Bali (SUTT) and the full introduction of a new coal-drive electrical power generation plant at Celukan Bawang, North Bali.

This is a warning reported by The Bali Post and made by the general manager of the State Power Board (PT PLN) in Bali, Syamsul Huda, on Thursday, June 5, 2014.

Huda said the power crossing (SUTT) stretching 70 kilometers across the Straits between Java and Bali is nearing 85% completed. Certain that the crossing will do much to bolster Bali’s critically short power supply, the PLN manager warns that completion may be threatened by difficulties in securing land title for the remaining gigantic electrical towers needed to finish the product.

The installation of two remaining towers in Tabanan, West Bali, without which it will be problematic to distribute power supplied from Java to the main electrical power consumption areas of Bali.

Delays in constructing power towers in Tabanan will also affect the ability to send power generated at Celukan Bawang to Bali’s South.

The Celukan Bawang Power Plant is expected to provide 390 megawatts of much-needed additional power for Bali.

Bali’s current power supply is limited to 890 MW with peak consumption in 2014 recorded at 735 MW on April 24, 2104. Meanwhile, Bali’s powers demand is increasing at a rate of 8.5 percent per year, meaning Bali could find itself unable to meet peak power demand in as little as 2 years unless more power is added to the grid.

To help build more redundancy into Bali’s power grid two new underwater power cables from Java to Bali – each capable of carrying 100 MW are expected to come on line in June 2014.
