Denpasar Officials Urged to Expedite Decision on Relocation of Badung Market Destroyed by Fire

Thousands of displaced traders displaced by the fire that destroyed Denpasar’s main market on Monday, February 29, 2016 are resisting efforts by the government to relocate their businesses. As reported by Beritabali.com, the plight of the traders is receiving attention from members of Bali Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali).

Commission II of DPRD-Bali, that deals with the local economy, is calling on the Municipal Government of Denpasar to quickly make a firm decision on the fate of the “thousands” of traders now in search of a new place to conduct their business.

Ketut Suwandi, the chairman of Commission II of the DPRD-Bali, wants the municipality to designate a place for the traders to re-establish their business.

A recommendation by Denpasar officials to relocate the traders to Pasar Loak Gunung Agung - the former location of the Tiara Grosir and the Kompyang Sujana Stadium have been rejected by traders who think the two locations disadvantageous to trade.

Suwandi, claiming neutrality in the final selection of a suitable new area of business for the displaced traders, is calling for the government to be forceful and firm in selecting a new market and for traders to acquiesce with that decision.

Commenting further, Suwandi said: “What’s important is the final location selected for the market is not only comfortable, save and representative for the traders, but also attractive for the customers. The municipal government must prepare suitable parking facilities that does not create new traffic jams.”

Dingdong, Anyone Home?
Local News Site Exposes Large Illegal Gambling Operation in the Heart of Baliís Capital

Despite recent police crackdowns on illegal slot machines, the Dingdong racketeering business is apparently thriving at the Life Style Hotel (formerly known as the Fave Hotel) on Jalan Teuku Umar in Downtown Denpasar.

Metrobali.com quoted an unnamed Denpasar resident who said: “They have been closed three time, but they’ve been open for four months. So it’s been almost four months that illegal dingdong gambling operation has been running without being touched by law enforcement."

Despite occasional high profile sweeps by police on Dingdong galleries, the gambling den on Jalan Teuku Umar, said to have been transplanted from Jakarta, continues to operate its business unabated. An estimated 130 Dingdong machines are employed at the downtown gambling den operating in a location on one of the capital’s busiest streets.

Another Denpasar resident who wished to remain unnamed told the press that the gambling operation enjoys the protection of a three-star general. The high profile gambling operation is also rumored to be paying regular protection to remain untouched by local law enforcement.

Other complaints regarding the Denpasar Dingdong gallery is that it allows the public to use the facility without any age restrictions, lacks  legal permits and pays no taxes on its sizeable daily turnover.

I Putu Sudiartana, a member of the National House of Representatives (DPR) from Bali, has threatened to personally visit the illegal gambling den and bring pressure on law enforcement to move against both the backers and operators dingdong galleries in Bali.

Loadings and Landings
Runway at Baliís Airport Undergoing a Yearlong Repaving

PT Angkasa Pura I (PTAP), the company that operates Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport, is spending around Rp. 120 billion to thicken and strengthen the sole runaway that serves Bali only airport for large jets.

Quoted by Nusa Bali, the general manager of PTAP, Trikora Harjo, said on Monday, March 14, 2016, “Beginning in April 2016, the runways will be thickened.”

Officials say the work on the runway that measure 3,000 meters long and 45 meters wide will be take one year to complete.

In order to avoid disrupting flight the repaving of the runway will be carried out during periods when there are few flights operating or between 2:00 am and 7:00 am.

The last re-paving of Bali’s runway took place five years ago. Officials said the current epaving would make the airport’s runway strong enough to accommodate the landing of an Airbus 380.


Vanquished Juvenile Delinquents
Two Teenage Purse Snatcher in Critical Condition after an Administration of Street Side Justice in Bali.

Two junior-high students caught in the act of trying to snatch the handbag of a French tourist, Caroline Perthuis (37), were severely beaten by angry bystanders on Jalan Suluban at Pecatu, South Kuta on Monday, March 14, 2016 at approximately 4:00 pm.

As reported by NusaBali, the two boys, aged 16 and 15, were savagely beaten by the angry crowd before police and neighborhood-watch members could separate them from the crowd and bring them to the Sanglah General Hospital. Not content to see the matter end there, the same crowd that had beaten the boys into a critical condition, seized their motorbike and set it ablaze.

At the time of the theft, the French tourist was walking on the edge of the road when the boys approached her from behind on a motorcycle and tried to snatch her handbag. Screaming for assistance, the boys were knocked from their bike some 50-meters from where the theft took place. A lengthy and severe beating by a large crowd ensued that left both boys with severe injuries to their heads and legs.

The injured students were brought to nearby Husada Hospital but, due to the severity of their injuries, were transferred to the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar.

Efforts by the police to conduct interviews with the two boys have been thwarted by their poor physical condition and an inability to coherently communicate.


The Tastiest Bits are at Baliís Center
Ubud Food Festival To Local Restaurants and Indonesian Cuisine May 27-29, 2016

After bringing together over 6,500 international participants for the inaugural event in 2015, the Ubud Food Festival (UFF) has announced its return to Bali’s culinary capital from 27-29 May 27-29, 2016.

Showcasing the delicious diversity of the Indonesian archipelago, the three-day event will span high energy cooking demonstrations, hands-on workshops and master classes, special events across some of Ubud’s most celebrated culinary establishments and in-depth food forums.

“If there was one lesson we learned from the 2015 Ubud Food Festival, it’s that the hunger is real,” said founder & director of the UFF, Janet DeNeefe. “The enthusiasm of the local and international culinary community was so overwhelming, there wasn’t really any question of whether we’d bring the Festival back for a second year.”

The full program and line-up is set to be released via the UFF website early April when tickets go on sale.

“This year, this Festival program is centered on the concept of ‘go local’,” explained DeNeefe. “Whether that’s showcasing local producers who work together with some of Ubud’s best restaurants, or challenging our International chefs to get creative with tempe and turmeric, it’s all about working with what Indonesia has to offer.”

A window into Indonesian culture, the UFF will also dive into the rich tapestry of culinary tradition, from what a Balinese priest eats to a visit to the ‘Tofu Grannies’ who have been producing Ubud’s artisan tofu for generations.

The Festival will also continue on its mission to bringing together chefs from all across the archipelago, from new chefs making waves on the rapidly evolving local food scene to the ‘ibu-ibu’ (mothers) of Indonesian cuisine.

With last year’s high energy Rendang Cook-Off between Indonesia and Malaysia a huge hit, the Festival’s cooking demonstration series will challenge chefs to plate up their best dishes, from spicy sambal to bebek goreng, exploring regional influences and traditional culinary customs.

“Indonesian food is so incredibly diverse; even the most well-known dishes such as nasi goreng are unique to the areas in which they are made. We’re also now seeing the modernization of Indonesian food, as it gains momentum outside of the country and takes on international variations,” said DeNeefe. “The UFF is all about enriching our understanding of this journey, and exploring the social, cultural and historical context that surrounds it. How do we modernize and keep our traditional roots? That’s what this year’s Festival is all about.”

Taking a Shine to Flying
Two Flight Inbound to Bali Report Laser Light Attacks Over Tanah Lot Area

NusaBali reports that two aircraft flying over Bali air space were struck by potentially dangerous laser lights, believed to have emanated from Beraban Village near Tanah Lot.

The first report came from an Indonesian Air Asia flight IX-7518 that took place on Monday, March 14, 2016 at around 12:50 am. The plane, flying from Jakarta to Bali, reported to Air Traffic Control (ATC) that a laser had struck the aircraft while flying at 6,000 feet on an inbound approach to Bali.

A half-hour later, at 1:20 am, another aircraft, Emirate Airlines UAE-398, inbound to Bali from Dubai, reported a similar laser encounter in approximately the same area as the earlier laser hit.

The reports of the laser encounters were confirmed by the general manager of PT Angkasa Pura I, Trikora Harjo. Trikora said his office was coordinating an investigation into the incident with the Tabanan Police Precinct to track down the source of the laser lights.

Police and Airport officials have made appeals to the public not to aim laser lighting into the night sky because of the danger posed to aircraft and the possibility of causing temporary blindness affecting cockpit crews.

Meanwhile, the manager of the Tanah Lot Tourism Complex denied any possibility of the laser light coming from the temple complex. According to the complex manager, I Ketut Toya Adnyana, lasers are never used at Tanah Lot, saying the use of laser lighting are typically part of events held at surrounding hotels.

Police at Tanah Lot have said they could find no event taking place using laser lights at the time of the recent incidents.

Sit Up and Take Notice
Overloaded Truck on Gilimanuk to Denpasar Road Stands on End and Causes Kilometers-Long Road Jam

A goods truck traveling travelling from the western port of Gilimanuk to Bali’s capital of Denpasar was so severely overloaded that it became precariously balanced on its rear wheels causing an extensive 10-kilometer traffic jam.

The truck with police plates DK 9476 WE was climbing a hill near the village of Samsam at Kerambitan when it became “nose high” on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. Unable to continue its journey, the “standing truck” caused a traffic jam that stretched for at least ten kilometers and lasted from mid-afternoon until late at night.

Trucks traveling between Gilimanuk and Denpasar are notorious for being grossly overloaded, despite weigh stations and feigned enforcement by traffic authorities that should, if properly applied, preclude the overloaded and slow-moving trucks from disrupting traffic flows.

The driver of the truck, Poniran (45) from Banyuwangi, East Java, said he had loaded the truck with bathroom fittings in Surabaya destined for Denpasar. Overloaded and unable to climb a hill, the truck suddenly became suspended high in the air on its two back wheels.

Efforts to move the overloaded truck by towing it with another heavily loaded truck were complicated when a second overloaded truck suffered a brake failure and struck a street lighting pole.

Keeping Wolves at Bay
Thousands of Protestors Close Access to Baliís Airport in Latest Action Against Benoa Bay Reclamation

For the second time since Sunday, February 28th, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Bali on Sunday, March 30th to protest the planned reclamation and development of the once-protected mangrove forests in Benoa Bay.

Proclaiming itself the “Peaceful Action Rejecting the Reclamation of Benoa Bay” thousands of demonstrators from 27 different local communities and numerous local organizations took to the roadways starting from 11:00 am.



Most of the demonstrators were wearing traditional Balinese dress. Many carried posters protesting the reclamation project while others carried ogoh-ogoh statues depicting the greed and rapaciousness of the investors seeking to exploit the bay area, considered sacred by many Balinese.

Vehicles with public addressed systems were also present for speeches in opposition to the project.



The coordinator of the protests, Wayan Gendo Suardana, told The Bali Post that the reclamation of Benoa Bay must be called off as it ignores the sacred character of the area and threatens both the environment and local culture.

The protestors, whose action effectively closed access to the Airport for the entire afternoon, demanded that Indonesian President Joko Widodo repudiate Presidential Decree No, 51 of 2014 signed by his predecessor that authorized the elimination of a protected forest area to accommodate the reclamation project.



Despite an effort to thwart the demonstration by the Chief of the Denpasar Police Precinct, the demonstration proceeded without incident. Village chiefs who bitterly complained that the police have tried in the past to stifle protests and tear down billboards protesting the reclamation, refused requests to delay the latest demonstration.

The spokesmen for the demonstrations urged the police and officials not to be frightened or think unfavorably of the peaceful protests.

Road Closed Until Further Notice
Angry Canggu Residents Pile Truckloads of Limestone to Close Access to Hotel Canggu InterContinental

DenPost reports that hundred of Canggu resident blocked access to the Hotel Canggu InterContinental site, protesting that the investor who owns the hotel has ignored many promises made in the course of developing the luxury resort.

The Balinese residents living in the surrounding community placed blocks of limestone on the roads on Sunday, March 20, 2016, preventing the passage of any vehicles. The latest demonstrations conformed to a deadline given to the Hotel’s developer on January 31, 2016.

Reports for the location indicate tense moments passed between the security workers assigned to the hotel and local residents, after the hotel ordered the removal of a protest banner.

A representative of the hotel (PT Canggu International), Abdul Facmy, admitted there was little he could do to appease the delegation of village leaders who called on him, explaining that he had only been employed in his current position for the past 10 days.

Trucks were deployed by villagers to the location carrying loads of limestone that were dumped on access roads, creating insurmountable road blocks for any vehicle wishing to enter or exit the hotel. Villages then planted banners on the top of the hills of limestone demanding the Hotel honor its pledges.

Joining the villagers in the protest were representative of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung) and police officials.

The March 20th action is only the latest in a long series of protests by villagers upset at the installation of an unauthorized breakwater and the illegal placement of barriers barring access to traditional seaside temples. Villagers are also demanding that a new land survey be undertaken to ensure that the hotel has not usurped land outside the resort.

A Failure to Negotiate
Bali Lawmaker Threaten to Revoke Operating License of Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali

Wayan Suyasa, the Chairman of Commission I of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung) in charge of licensing, has threatened to close the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali on Pantai German in Kuta.

As reported by Radar Bali, the Lawmaker told the press he suspects that PT Menara Perdana, the company that owns the 193-room seaside property, is acting in a stubborn and uncompromising fashion in a land dispute with the surrounding Balinese community.

Suyasa said: “The Holiday Inn is being very stubborn, requiring the legislature to summon them and issue a warning. If necessary, we will withdraw the building’s permit, because the hotel has no sense of belonging to the community and is only interested in championing their own interests.”

Suyasa told the press that the Holiday Inn will be given a warning and called to meet with the appropriate agencies at the DPRD-Badung for a meeting between the investors, the Land Office (BPN), and the Shores and Riverbank agency. Emphasizing his anger, Suyasa said he has authorized the Regency’s enforcement agency (Satpol PP Badung) to close the hotel if its owners remain recalcitrant.

“If someone is too bold in handling their investments by disturbing the local environment and seeks to champion only their own position, then firm steps must be taken. On the other hand, if the business owner can be invited to negotiate and understand a situation, then we will offer our advice,” said Suyasa.

Meanwhile the chief of the Badung Livestock, Fisheries and Oceans Department, confirmed that he had recently visited the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali accompanied by the deputy-regent of Badung, Ketut Suyasa, in order to survey the location and understand the dispute. Efforts to negotiate and achieve a peaceful settlement with the hotel reached an impasse, with owner accused of playing hide and seek with the Badung officials.

A meeting scheduled for 4:00 pm between the owners and the District Chief (Camat) was cancelled when the owner, Siswanto Wetan, left Bali on a 3:00 pm flight. Officials complain that such behavior is tantamount to bad faith and a deliberate step to delay a decision. The Badung officials said that the owner has repeatedly agreed to surrender a walkway built on the public right-of-way, but always manages to side step making that happen.

Badung officials are now discussing additional legal steps that can be taken with the police, including freezing the operational license of the hotel to permit the licence's reconsideration or even its possible revocation.


A Most Taxing Situation
Falling Tourist Numbers and Lower Tax Collection Hits Karangasem, East Bali.

The realization of Hotel and Restaurant Taxes (PHR) in the regency of Karangasem, East Bali for 2016 is falling below targeted expectations.

Interim data shows taxes collected to date through the middle of March totals Rp. 1.6 billion, a figure far below the anticipated Rp. 3.6 billion.

As reported by The Bali Post, the low tax collection is blamed on a downturn in arrivals since the start of 2016. The head of revenues for the Karangasem Government, Nengah Toya, said he doubts the tax collection target for Q1 2016 can be achieved. Moreover, a targeted tax collection for the entire year of Rp. 18.4 billion also remains very much in doubt.

The number of accommodation providers paying taxes in Karangasem remains at around 404 properties with only 1 five-star hotel, 2 four-star hotels, 3 three-star hotels, and 1 two-star hotel. There are also 24 melati-three hotels, 19 melati-two hotels, and 354 melati-one hotels and villas.

Toya revealed that the total PHR collected in Karangasem in 2015 was Rp. 17.3 billion, exceeding the targeted Rp. 16.7 billion. But low visitor numbers and the resulting low occupancy levels of Karangasem hotels now mean PHR revenues may decline in 2016.

PHR revenues play a major role in total funds available for the operation of the public sector in Karangasem, with the total Regency Budget for 2016 pegged at Rp. 233 billion.

Officials remain cautiously hopeful that both visitor numbers and tax revenues for Karangasem will increase through the end of 2016.


Cutting the Red Tape
President Widodo Simplifies Business Practice by Eliminating Five Type of Business License

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has eliminated five types of business licenses in order to lessen the expense and time involved in dealing with a top-heavy national bureaucracy and to encourage both domestic and international investment.

In announcing the elimination of the five types of business licenses, President Widodo told the Presidential Cabinet that in 2016 Indonesia was ranked #109 among 189 countries for the ease of conducting business. This compares unfavorably with neighboring countries in the region, such as Singapore (#1), Malaysia (#18), Thailand (#49), Brunei (#84), Vietnam (#90) and the Philippines (#103).

The five types of licenses declared as unnecessary by the President are:
  • Izin Gangguan (Hinder Ordonnantie/HO): This is a license issued stating that there are no objections from neighboring businesses and residences to a business operating in a specific locale.
  • Izin Tempat Usaha: This is a license issued to individuals, companies or organizations allowing them to seek a place to carry on their business activities within the limitations of local zoning and spatial regulations. This license is normally issued as a preparatory step in setting up a new investment.
  • Izin Prinsip: This is a permit issued by the Nation, Province or Region required as "principle agreement" in setting up a new business.
  • Izin Lokasi: This is a permit issued to a company to acquire land for the establishment of an investment project.
  • Izin Amdal: This is a mandatory study of any significant environmental impact accompanying the establishment of a new venture.
Plans are also underway to add efficiency to the investment process by combining licenses such as a business operating license (SIUP) and company registration (TDP) into a single document.

This significant change in licensing requirement is still being socialized to the public and private sectors, to be introduced as quickly as possible over time.

DenPost reports that local residents were alarmed and concerned with the appearance of the enormous dead mammal on their shores, believing the incident foretells the coming of a major, possibly cataclysmic, event in Bali.

Other, meanwhile, have deemed the arrival of the dead whale as a blessing, with parts of the whale to be used in religious ceremonies.

For Those Who Want to Be in Wakatobi
Wakatobi in Southeast Sulawesi Seeking Direct Flight Link with Bali

The Regency of Wakatobi in Southeast Sulawesi is in serious discussions with the Matahora Airport at Wakatobi and Indonesian air operators aimed at establishing regularly scheduled flight service connecting Bali and Wakatobi.

In recent years, the reputation of Wakatobi as a world-class dive destination has grown, resulting in stronger demand for a direct air link from Bali.

The Regency’s Secretary, Sudjiton, confirmed to NusaBali that a recommendation has been formulated for direct flights to and from Bali. The recommendation was a joint effort, prepared by the Regency, airport officials, the Southeast Sulawesi Provincial Government and the Ministry of Transportation.

Currently, tourists wanting to travel to Wakatobi must transit via Makassar for a flight to Kendari to once again change to another flight to Wakatobi.

Matahora Wakatobi airport currently receives one flight each day by Wing Air from Kendari utilizing an ATR25-600/700 aircraft.

Showing the seriousness of their intent, the Wakatobi administration is offering to subsidize the profitability of the desired direct slight service from Bali to Wakatobi.

Meanwhile, plans are also afoot to extend the length of the Wakatobi Airport runway from its current 2,000 meters to 2,500 meters, and to expand the apron area to facilitate the parking of aircraft.

The Indonesian Government has identified Wakatobi as a highly potential tourism destination in Indonesia eligible for both promotional and development support funding.
