Beating Swords into Life-Saving Syringes
Funds Being Raised in Bali to Build HIV Clinic and Counseling Center at Former Home of Murdered American Expatriate Paul Latourell

A crowd funding project has been launched to raise an estimated US$20,000 needed to renovate a private residence in central Denpasar, Bali into a fully-fledged free HIV testing, counseling and treatment center.

The proposed Bali Peduli Clici at the Paul Latourell Health Center will be operated from the former home of American expatriate Paul Latourell who was brutally murdered on February 15, 2104.

A long time resident in Bali and a former HIV/AIDS activist and educator, Paul Latourell was a driving force in Bali’s rainbow community. Working with dedicated Indonesian medical professionals and members of the LGBT community, Paul was instrumental in helping to establish the Bali Peduli Clinic in Kuta and was a defining voice in the struggle to secure free retroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS patients in Indonesia.

The Bali Peduli Clinic in Kuta has filled an important need in the local community to the extent that demand for its services are now approaching the delivery capacity limits of the facility and its staff.

After Paul’s death, his family in California very generously donated the remaining 9 years of his leasehold on his Denpasar home to Bali Peduli in the hope that a future clinic would be established in Paul’s memory.

Those supporting the drive believe that Paul’s former Bali home and the scene of his murder should fittingly  be transformed into a place of caring and humanity, two traits that so generously exemplified by Latourell’s life

The Gofundme.com initiative was launched by Bali-based businessman and personal friend of Latourell, Andrew de Jong.

Go Fund Me allows donations of any amount to be committed to this project and tracked over the course of the entire funding campaign.

A Criminal by Any Other Name
Indonesia and Indian Police Cooperating to Extradite Notorious Indian Criminal from Bali to India

An international criminal will soon be extradited from Bali to India. Chohhota Rajan, was taken into custody after arriving at Bali’s Airport on Sunday, October 25, 2015, traveling on a passport in the name of another wanted Indian serial killer Mohan Kumar.

Rajan is reported to be a major figure in the Indian criminal underworld once working in a ranking position with the Dawood Ibrahin gang. Rajan, who is reportedly out of favor with his former gang, is concerned he will be killed and is believd to have sought a way to pave a way back to India by departing Sydney under an false identity before being arrested by Indonesian authorities for extradition to India.

According to the Indian Express. Rajan has been on the run from International law enforcement for more than 20 year.

The administrative application process to approve Chohhota Rajan's extradition from Indonesia to India is now well underway.

Originally from Mumbai, the man in police custody in Bali - Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje alias Mohan Kumar alias Chhota Rajan - is wanted on charges ranging from multiple murder, extortion and possession of illegal firearms. He has escaped at least one assassination attempt launched against him by the Dawood Gang while he was in Bangkok in 2000.

The Christian Science Monitor reports that Nikalje is closely linked to the famous fugitive Dawood Ibrahim, now living in Pakistan, who is clamed to have masterminded the 1993 Mumbai bombing that killed 250 people and injured 700.

Indian police are calling the man’s arrest a major success and likely to shed light on a number of crimes and the activities of a large criminal network.

Taking a Toll on Your Pocketbook
Bali Toll Road Increases its Tariff Effective November 1, 2105

Effective Sunday, November 1, 2015 the rates to travel on the Bali Mandara Roll Road increased.

The toll rate increase became effective from 6:00 am on the first day of November.

As reported by Kompas.com, the CEO of PT Jasamarga Bali Tol, Akhmad Tito Karim, defended the increase on Friday, October 30, 2015, saying it was needed to improve services and repay the original investment.

Under the law, the toll road is allowed to seek approval from the government to increase rates once every two years. The Bali Toll Road was opened in October 2013 by then President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Authorized by a decree issued by the Minister of Public Works on October 28, 2015, the average increase is less than 10%.

The new toll rates in effect from November 1, 2015 on the Bali Mandara Toll Road are as follows:
  • Group 1: Sedans, jeeps, small pick-up trucks and busses Rp. 11,000.
  • Group 2: Large Trucks with two axels Rp. 16,500.
  • Group 3: Trucks with three axels Rp. 22,000
  • Group 4: Trucks with four axels Rp. 27,000
  • Group 5: Trucks with five axels Rp. 33,000
  • Group 6: Two-wheeled motorcycles Rp. 4,500


Paradise is Not for Sale to Foreigners
Bali Update Editor J.M. Daniels Provides an Overview of Why Foreign Fools in Search of Indonesian Land Ownership are Often Sadly Soon-Parted from their Money

In considering the current outlook surrounding foreign property ownership in Bali, the old saying of “It's always darkest just before it goes pitch black” somehow seems to apply.

Because of past coverage of Bali’s real estate sector on Balidiscovery.com and Bali Update, I am frequently asked to the try to decode the evolving vagaries of Indonesian property law as it pertains to foreign land ownership.

Let me preface any remarks with the proud proclamation that “I am not a lawyer,” meaning my observations are based on an admittedly inexpert reading of the law and many conversations with a range of professionals on the practicalities of property transactions in Bali. As a result, I am free of any latent tendencies to say only what I think my readers want to hear – a woefully dangerous proclivity exhibited by many legal eagles and real estate salesmen in these parts.

And, if the past reactions to my attempts at analysis of Bali’s property sector are reliable indicators of what’s to come, I’m battening down the hatches for threats of violence or worse likely to come from those in Bali who find my straight forward talk on the foibles of foreigners trying to own land in Bali as highly inconvenient to their efforts to separate unwitting expatriates from their money.

High profile property seminars conducted recently on the topic of foreign land ownership have led many to mistakenly conclude that A) change in foreign land ownership rules are somehow imminent, and B) that key Indonesian policymakers in the property sector actually even care what foreigners think about the highly politicized topic of foreign land title.

Moreover, announcements that foreigners will soon be able to buy extremely high-end and high-rise apartments in Indonesia are being promulgated in ways that may, in fact, in their final form, serve to make such ownership less attractive than existing “HGB" (Hak Guna Pakai) title. Reportedly included in the new rules are limitations allowing only the “purchase” of high-rise properties costing a minimum of Rp. 5 billion, an additional requirement for foreign property owners to be a legal resident of Indonesia, and an absolute requirement to relinquish ownership within 12 months when a foreigner ends their Indonesian residency.

It must be noted in this context that the final rules for high-end and high-rise apartments in Indonesia are still incomplete. As they are now presented, however, they are unlikely to have any impact on the freestanding private villa market in Bali. What’s more, any liberalization of the property ownership rules will still have to face face challenges before the Indonesian Constitutional Court where nationalist sentiments have steadfastly ruled the day in the past by declaring the 1945 Constitution expressly forbids foreign land ownership.

The possibly misleading belief that substantive change in ownership rules is currently being considered has also created a “wait and see” attitude in Bali real estate, with realtor complaining actual property transactions are down by 75% when compared to just a one year ago.

Property transactions in Bali are down and uncertainty in the property sector seems to be running at record-high levels. Against this backdrop of uncertainty, lawyers and notaries in Bali  continue to fashion elaborate multi-part contracts intended to cede something tantamount to “land ownership” based on long term leases, secured by fictional irreversible loan agreements and irrevocable powers of attorney.

Meanwhile, evidence and unfavorable court decisions are mounting to show that such legal constructs are little more than a flimsy house of cards unlikely to stand up to even the most modest legal challenge. First and foremost, it is generally accepted in all legal jurisdictions that agreements specifically fashioned to circumvent the national law, in this case the absolute prohibition against foreign land ownership in Indonesia, are ipso facto both illegal and invalid. Over the past 1-2 year government officials have publicly warned that nominee arrangements are merely “back door” camouflage for foreign ownership and therefore essentially illegal and subject to legal reversal.

Earlier this year, the Agrarian Affairs Minister, Ferry Mursyidan, warned that efforts were underway to take an inventory of land held "illegally" by foreigners in Bali and Lombok preparatory, it is presumed, to seizing these properties and putting those lands back in the control of Indonesian nationals.

Add to this stewing cauldron the fact that it now appears the “absolute power of attorney” documents regularly issued by nominees at the request of notaries and lawyers in order to prop up shaky ownership structures are, at best, highly suspect. A Ministerial Decree issued in 1982 declared that Powers of Attorney in matters involving landed property may not be granted and are therefore subject to revocation at any time. One legal observer told Bali Update, that such powers of attorney “amount to a signed confession of intent to circumvent higher Indonesian law, including the Constitution and could be used against the Attorney (The “ Grantee”) in Court.”

Efforts to fashion Powers of Attorney that survive their creator and pass responsibilities and obligations onto the heirs of the original Grantor are also not recognized in Indonesia or, for that matter, in most international legal jurisdictions.

Underlining the complicated situation surrounding foreigners who insist on trying to own land in Indonesia, was a tale recently related on the Australian website (www.domain.com.au) identifying a Western Australian woman, Jacki Farrar, who is building a three-bedroom home near Ubud in Central Bali.

The article says Farrar and her husband opted to “buy” the land using a "nominee" legal arrangement, replete with the manifold additional agreements, which are intended to place their Indonesian “nominee” completely under their thumb as regards the use of "their land" in perpetuity.

Admitting that this sort of arrangement is under fundamental legal challenge, the Farrar's suggest,  somewhat naively, that if worse come to worse they will simply set up a lease agreement with their current nominee. That approach could add up to become a can of worms as it would necessitate a new transaction subject to to VAT over  an above that supposedly already paid during the nominee purchase process. Inherent in this "go with the flow" mentality is the unproven assumption of obseqious complicity on the part of the nominee who, in fact, “would be within his legal rights” to repudiate the defunct original agreement and ask the Farrar’s to quickly vacate what is, after all in the eyes of Indonesian law, his land.

Such scenarios and the inability of foreigners to effectively enforce their “ownership” are an increasingly harsh and frequent result of nominee legal structures  played out in Indonesian courtrooms on a regular basis.

Are foreign land ownership rules evolving in Indonesia? The answer is  “yes,” but not necessarily in ways that will necessarily delight foreigners aspiring to own their own corner of Paradise.

The truth of the matter is that little, if anything has changed in the rules and regulations governing foreign land ownership in Indonesia. It still remains expressly against the Indonesian Constitution for foreigners to own land in Indonesia or even enter into agreements designed to circumvent this absolute prohibition.

When it comes to foreigner buying land in Indonesia, now, more than ever, caveat emptor applies.


Short on Targets, Short on Cash
Bali Toll Road Still Needs Shareholder Cash to Meet Loan Obligations

PT Jasamarga Bali Tol, the operator of the Mandara Toll Road, blames a failure to meet targeted traffic levels that has resulted in monthly losses of Rp. 3 billion.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the CEO of PT Jasamarga Bali Tol, Akhmad Tito Karim said on Friday, October 30, 2015, “Every month we must pay Rp. 13 billion but the reality is we are only able to pay Rp. 10 billion.”

Tito Karim said two shareholders - the Province of Bali and the Regency of Badung, who hold 30% of the shares in the project, are covering the current shortfall in cash. Adding, “This means the Balinese people must make a cash injection.”

The construction of Bali’s first elevated toll road over Benoa harbor cost Rp. 2.5 trillion with 30% of the funds coming from the Province of Bali and the Regency of Badung and 70% in the from of a loan of Rp. 1.7 trillion from a consortium of Banks: Bank Mandiri, BNI, BCA, BRI, BTN and BPD Bali.

Repayment of loans due each month from the toll operator equals Rp. 13 billion.

Tito Karim revealed that the business plan for 2015 projected 51,000 vehicles would travel the 12.5 –kilometer long roadway every day. The average number of vehicles now using the road each day, however, numbers only 43.000.

Assuming traffic levels remain constant, the 10% increase in toll fees introduced on November 1, 2105 would see revenues still fall slightly below what is needed for the toll company to meet its financial obligation.

Bali Builds a Provincial Health Center
Bali Governor Promises New Mandara Provincial Hospital will Offer Integrated and Modern Services

The new Bali Mandara Hospital now being built by the Province on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai in Sanur will be modern in both design and management systems, according to Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika.

Quoted by Beritabali.com, Pastika said on Monday, October 26, 2015: “This hospital will be ‘integrated’ and will not be composed of a collection of separate buildings. A comprehensive study had been done on how to establish a modern health system with integrated services.”

The Governor said the new provincial hospital now being built would no longer see patients traveling back and forth with intravenous bottles or carrying their x-rays, practices that indicate a failure to adopt modern hospital practice.

To achieve the Governor’s vision for the Bali Mandara Provincial Hospital, Pastika said a budget of Rp. 400 billion is needed to purchase the necessary medical equipment.

In earlier discussion with the Governor. the Central Government promised to provide Rp. 150 billion from the State Budget (APBN) for the purchase of medical equipment. “This has been agreed by the National Planning Agency (Bappenas), but not yet by the Minister of Health. If this amount can be confirmed from the National Budget (APBN), the remainder can be prepared from the Provincial Budget (APBD),” explained Pastika.

Governor Pastika said interior design of the hospital would commence in 2016. He expressed the hope that when the design process begins for operating theatres, x-ray rooms and other facilities - those designs can be made to specifically conform with the equipment that will be installed in these rooms.

Somewhat surprising and seen by many as incongruous is the fact that the hospital is being constructed without the active ongoing involvement of those who will be entrusted with managing the facility. The Governor said that the management of the Hospital would be given to a company selected via a bidding process to be held sometime in the future.

Pastika also said the specific medical specialties to be offered at the new hospital have also yet to be determined. Adding: “We need to survey the market first, Is the market seeking treatment for degenerative diseases or other illnesses, such as anti-aging, cardiac, gynecology and other medical specialties. This has yet to be decided.”


Yes, We Take Cards!
Few Choose Cashless E-Payment on the Bali Mandara Toll Road

The use of electronic forms of payment among the estimated 43,000 vehicles that travel the Bali Mandara Toll Road each day remains very low at only 4%.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the financial director of PT Jasamarga Bali Tol, Ronny Haryanto said: “Payment in non-cash methods is still low at only 4%. Most using electronic payment are driving sedans.”

Three banks currently offer electronic value cards that can be used to pay toll fees, Bank Mandiri offers “e-money, BNI features “tap cash” and BCA “flash.”

All the toll booths entering the Mandara Toll Road are equipped with electronic payment processors, with one lane reserved exclusively for those using e-payment cards.

Haryanto expressed the hope that the use of electronic payment cards would grow in popularity due to enhanced convenience and efficiency for both the toll operator and the motorist. Recently increased toll tariffs may also offer an unexpected added incentive for motorists to switch to electronic payment methods rather than be troubled waiting in line for toll attendants to make change.

Testing Baliís Tourism Workers
20,000 Balinese Tourism Workers to Undergo Competency Certification before the end of 2015

Kompas.com reports that the Province of Bali will undertake competency certification testing for 20,000 tourism workers before the end of 2015.

The ambitious program of certification testing was confirmed by the head of the Bali Manpower Office, I Gusti Agung Sudarsana, on Monday, October 26, 2015.

The testing program will be performed by the Tripartite Professional Certification Agency (LSPP3) comprised of the three certification and training agencies in Bali.

“Hopefully those who are tested will manage to pass and be certified. At least most should pass because they have been employed in these capacities for years,” said Sudarsana.

Those tested will be drawn from the city of Denpasar, and the regencies of Gianyar, Bangli and Karangasem.

The cost of conducting certification testing for 20,000 Balinese workers is put at Rp. 9.5 billion.

The certification program is being introduced to ensure that Indonesian tourism workers can compete with workers from other ASEAN counties under new rules that permit the free movement of workers within the region.


Welcoming Foreign Workers to Indonesia
Nationalistic Fervor Takes a Backseat to Practicality as Indonesia Abandons Range of Anti-foreign Worker Regulations

The Jakarta Globe reports that the Indonesian Government has decided to abandon a range of new rules and regulation intended to serve as a disincentive to employing foreigner in Indonesian companies.

Among the punitive measures that have now been taken off the table are a requirement to employ at least 10 Indonesians for every foreign workers, requirement that non-residential directors must obtain Indonesian working permits and the requirement that foreigners serving as speakers and panelists at Indonesian conferences must hold working permits.

The requirement, now abandoned, that all people attending an Indonesian conference and taking an active role as a speaker or panelist would need to be sponsored by an Indonesian company, file a manpower plan and obtain a working pertmit was seen of having the potential of closing down the nation's meeting and conference industry.

Hery Sudarmanto, who is charged by the government to oversee foreign workers at the Indonesian Manpower Agency, said: “We are hearing suggestions from all sides. We dropped this to support investment because when investors come, they would create jobs,”

Earlier, plans to also require all foreign workers to pass Indonesian language proficiency tests were withdrawn.

Meanwhile, the presidential palace is pledging to remove additional bureaucratic obstacles and make it easier for companies to obtain immigration and manpower permits for skilled foreign workers.


Getting Cross with HIV
Red Cross Bali Meets to Deal with the Detection, Prevention and Treatment of HIV/AIDS

The Bali branches of the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI-Bali) held it annual meeting to discuss the prevention of HIV/AIDS and the care and support of those afflicted with the disease.

The head of public relations for PMI-Bali, Aprini Megawati, told the State News Agency that this years gathering at the Hotel Legian Paradiso in Kuta October 29-30, 2015, adopted the theme “HIV/AIDS prevention, care and support Program."

Experts, medical workers and community activists used the three-day conference to discuss means of preventing HIV/AIDS, its detection and treatment.

While there are PMI branches in every metropolitan area and regency in Bali, the PMI branches reporting the highest level of HIV/AIDS infections in Bali are found in Denpasar, Badung and Buleleng.

You Canít Hit a Moving Target
Indonesiaís Tourism Minister Believes that Tourism Projection Should be Moving Targets

Detik.com questions what, in fact, are the actual tourism targets for Indonesia in 2015 and what is the mechanism by which the Minister of Tourism Areif Yahya fixes and changes those targets?

Who wouldn’t be confused?

The Minister has changed the number of foreign tourists expected in 2015 from 10 million to 12 million and back to 10 million again. It's understandable, therefore, if no one’s really quite sure what the current target du jour actually is?

When the Presidential Cabinet of Joko Widodo began working, Arief Yahya predicted that the some 9.4 million foreign tourists that came to Bali in 2014 would increase by only a half-million or so to 10 million before then end of 2015.

But, wait a minute! The 10 million was an inherited target from the last Minister of Tourism and Arief Yahya had his own ideas. Describing a “quick win” approach and desiring to build confidence in national tourism, the new Tourism Minister, on February 5, 2015, after consulting with vice president Jusuf Kalla made a bold revision in the target, saying Indonesia would welcome 12 million foreign tourist in 2015.

Explaining the move 8 months later in October 2015, Arief Yahya said the increase to 12 million was based on the confidence he shared with Kalla on how tourism would perform through the rest of 2015.

However, by mid 2015, it was obvious that foreign tourist arrivals were not developing as Yahya had wished. The world economy was sluggish and Mt. Raung was exploding with its volcanic ash causing widespread flight cancellations. By October 2015, the Minister has backtracked and was again predicting the original 10 million foreign tourists through the end of the year.

Speaking in Jakarta on Thursday, October 29, 2015, Minister Yahya somewhat sheepishly evaded the topic put to him by detik.com. answering: “Well, it was 10 million foreign tourists from the beginning. Enough for now, I have to meet a guest.”

University Study Tour Cancelled
Bali Travel Agent Accused of Embezzling Travel Funds from Udayana University Study Group

Police have named a Bali-based travel agent Hendri Harjo Basuki as a suspect in a case of fraud and malfeasance that caused losses estimated at Rp. 1.1 billion to hundreds of English Faculty students at Bali’s Udayana University.

Basuki, who owns Bali Chresna Cahaya Tour (BCCT), has been taken into custody by the Denpasar Police together with evidence police say that they will later use in preparing the case for prosecution.

As reported by NusaBali, police apprehended Basuki following criminal complaints filed by students who had made advance deposits on a planned study trip to Singapore.

130 students from the University had booked a trip to Singapore at a cost of Rp. 7,575,000 per person spread over two payments.

The trip that was scheduled to depart for Singapore on Monday October 19, 2015 was suddenly cancelled by BCCT Travel . The student then filed a complaint with police claiming losses of Rp. 1.1 billion.


Sins of our Fathers
Villagers in West Bali Exhume Unmarked Graves of Victims of 1965 Community Coup to End String of Unexplained Suicide

In the aftermath of the failed coup of September 30, 1965 (Gestapu), an extended period of civil unrest and anti-communist violence erupted in Bali resulting in massacres in numerous locations around the Island. The pogroms went on for several months until a large-scale military action eventually ended the bloodshed.

To this day, unmarked graves containing large numbers of bodies are regularly uncovered by erosion or digging for development projects that are presumed to be linked to the bloody events of 1965-1966.

NusaBali reports that local residents from Banjar Masean in the village of Batuagung in Jembrana, West Bali exhumed 9 bodies on Thursday, October 29, 2015 near a local grammar school.

Using earth-moving equipment, the scattered skeletal remains of 9 people were unearthed and identified by local citizens as people who were killed in the purging of suspected Indonesian Communist Party members (PKI).

The decision to exhume the bones for cremation and eventual disposal in accordance with Balinese ritual was done in order to grant final rest and peace to the deceased individuals whose lives ended so violently 50 years ago in the village. Local citizens believe that the area of the mass burial was rendered unclean by the murders and that the souls of the departed continued to haunt and torment local residents to this day.

Feeding these fears are the high number of suicides performed by hanging that have occurred in Masean over the past half-century. Locals count as many as 50 separate acts of suicide in their small community at an average rate of one death per year.

Leading the local committee in performing the exhumation of the Gestapu victims was Bagus Ketut Mariana (37) who told the press that there were originally 11 bodies buried in the area. Two deceased siblings from a local family were removed in 1984, leaving the remaining 9 victims in the ground.

A local man, Kakian Krenda (90), who lived in the area at the time of the killing provided help in locating the five burial places of the remaining 9 victims along a 50-meter stretch of road.

Recovered were the remains of 9 local villagers:
  • Ida Kade Putra whose family still lives in Banjar Masean,
  • Ida Komang Suja whose family still lives in Banjar Pancaseming
  • Ida Puta Sedana whose family still lives in Banjar Pancaseming
  • Gusti Putu Wira whose family still lives in Banjar Pancaseming
  • Gusti Putu Sandra whose family still lives in Banjar Masean
  • Gusti Kade Wira whose family still lives in Banjar Masean
  • I Ketut Sundia whose family still lives in Banjar Pancaseming
  • Pak Pugig with family connections unknown but believed to be from Pandak, Tabanan
  • Wayan Handra with family connections unknown but believed to be from Negara.
A local village official estimates there are still at least 36 more unmarked graves connected to Gestapu still unexhumed in the area.

The bones were collected in and cremated in common in order to allow the souls of the departed eternal rest and at the same time end torment of the living residents of the area.

  • First, every member of the national police is expected to understand what constitutes hateful utterances.
  • Second, Police personnel are expected to be sensitive and responsive to incidents and indications that can foster criminal acts.
  • Three, every member of the police is expected to undertake analysis of each situation and local conditions that can foster hateful utterances.

  • To foster positive communication between those suspected of hateful utterances with those who are the targeted victims of hate speech.
  • To seek a peaceful resolution between conflicting parties and make all concerned aware of the negative impact of hate speech in the community.
If preventive steps prove ineffective, then the police should not hesitate prosecute those committing hate speech under the relevant sections of theCriminal Code (KUHP).

Hazing Aviation
Citilink Indonesia and Garuda Count Their Losses from Haze Emergency

The State News Agency Antara reports that haze from forest and land fires across wide areas of Indonesia has played havoc on flight schedules and incurred losses estimated at Rp. 25 billion for  a member of the Indonesian aviation industry.

The Commercial Director of PT Citilink Indonesia Hans Nugroho said, "Quite thick haze in several provinces in Indonesia has forced us to cancel flights for up to several days."

Concerns were also expressed that haze and heavy smoke cold cause engine damage, necessitating more flight cancellations.

Assuring that safety came first, Nugroho added: "We must prioritize the safety and comfort of passengers, and so, if an unfavorable incident occurs that compels cancelations, we would never take any risk."

Nugroho said that flight cancellations had affected thousands of Citilink Indonesia passengers and caused the company Rp. 25 billion in losses.

The general manager of Garuda Indonesia in Manado, Deddy Irawan, confirmed that his Airline had also suffered losses due to recent calamities of nature,

"We, however, could not as yet ascertain the amount of losses. What is clear is that we suffered losses as we had to pay for the parking cost for quite a long time, hotels for crew, and also compensation for passengers," Irawan explained.


Less Pomp, Due to the Circumstances
Indonesian Officials Must Now Embark and Disembark Airplanes without Cast of Minions and Deputies

New rules now in effect at airports across Indonesia will bring to an end entourages befitting a Grand Poobah escorting Indonesian officials on and off commercial flights.

In the past, it was not unusual to see even middle Indonesian ranking officials accompanied onto an airplane by a number assistants who clear the way, carrying the official's hand luggage and yet another designated to tote an attaché case. Gear stored and respectful bows and handshakes made all round, these minions would then depart the plane so the doors of the aircraft could be closed and the aircraft depart.

Detik.com reports the director general of air safety from the Ministry of Transportation, M. Masir Usman, has issued a circular instruction to 267 airports in Indonesia that will prohibit personal assistants and lackeys from accompanying officials onto or off an airplane for which they do not hold a valid ticket.

Nasir’s announcement specifically bars unauthorized individuals from entering airlines and the apron areas of Indonesia’s airports. “In the past there were many who would pass in and out who have no official business with the airport but trespassing in the apron area. There were some who are  proud of their ability to enter a forbidden zone.” Said Nasir.

Nasir said his decree means that strict control will now be applied and unauthorized people will no longer be allowed onto the apron and airplanes, but will have to do their “good-byes” and “farewells” in the public areas of the airport.

Nasir lamented the need for the prohibition, saying: “The problems are requests for special treatment, when in fact they are not allowed to meet arriving passengers. The apron is a sterile area, reserved exclusively for ground handling staff and security.”


Of Thee and Thee and I Sing
Indonesia Diaspora Supports President Joko Widodoís Pledge to Draft Law Allowing Dual Nationality

The London Bureau of The State News Agency Antara reports that the council of the Global Indonesian Diaspora Network has welcomed a statement made by President Joko Widodo recently while in Washington, D.C. announcing that he would immediately support measures that would allow Indonesian nationals to hold dual citizenship.

The President of the Global Indonesian Diaspora Network in Den Haag, Ebed Litaay, told Antara that President Widodo has promised to support the drafting of new laws on dual-citizenship and also do all within his powers to see such a law approved.

At present, Indonesians are forbidden under Indonesian law from holding dual nationality.

Separately, the Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Retno L.P. Marsudi, confirmed that discussions have commenced on drafting the new law following a meeting the Indonesia Diaspora in August of 2015. Retno said the Government firmly believed that the Indonesian Diaspora has an important role to play in National development.

The Council of the Global Indonesian Diaspora Network expressed its satisfaction and thanks to the President for recent developments in support of dual nationality for Indonesian citizens.

At the same time, the Global Indonesian Diaspora Network said it would continue to do all in its powers to support and facilitate any change in the single-nationality law with the Indonesian legislature.


Yo-Ho-Ho: True Tale of Woe
German Private Yacht SY Faraway Hijacked in the Lombok Straits

Newsmaritime.com reports that a 20-meter German Sailing Yacht S//Y Faraway with 2 passengers on board has been hijacked in the Lombok Straits on or about October 13, 2015.

The ship was on a round-the-word voyage and destined for its next stop in Bali.

Pirates reportedly boarded the yacht at sea and took control of the vessel and its two German occupants.

The two Germans managed to send an SMS message to friends confirming that the boat had been commandeered by armed pirates who have threatened them with violence. 

Police were alerted. The current position of the yacht remains unknown. Both the German Embassy and Police investigating the case delayed revealing details to the press while an intensive area search was conducted to find the yacht.

One of the passengers on the boat has been identified as its owner, Diana Christa Lorens, who, according to Indonesian Police, managed to send SMS reporting the hijacking.

A firm specializing in maritime security has termed the incident as “highly unusual” with no similar reports of private yacht hijacking in this area.
In the absence of contact with the hijackers, it remains unclear if the hijacking was committed for financial or political reasons.


Three Times and Youíre Out
Bali Immigration to Strictly Limit Visa-Free and Visa-on-Arrival Use by Foreign Visitors to Twice in any 12-Month Period

In response to complaints from the Island’s tourism industry made to the Island’s House of Representatives (DPR-Bali) about illegal foreign workers, the head of the Ngurah Rai Immigration office has issued written instructions that will impact dramatically on frequent visitors to Bali.

Yosep H.A. Renung Widodo’s decree issued to take immediate effect on October 20, 2015 stipulates that visitors to Indonesia utilizing visa-on-arrival or visa-free facilities more than twice in any 12-month period will be denied entry to Indonesia.

Those wishing to visit more than twice in 12 months should obtain a visa from their nearest Indonesian embassy or Consulate beforehand.

The decree mentions that foreigners with temporary resident permits (ITAS), permanent residency (ITAP), diplomatic visas, service visas (Visa Dinas) and multiple visit visa will remain unaffected by the new two-visit rule.

In a general crackdown on foreign nationals working illegally in Bali, Widodo instructs that those discovered to be working illegally should be apprehended and placed on an immigration blacklist barring future visits to Indonesia.
