The Art of Motorcycle Brazenness
Dutch Motorcycle Group Wreaks Damage on Kuta, Bali Bar-Restaurant

Combined police task forces of officers from the Denpasar and Kuta police precincts are investigating a violent incident that occurred at the Pyramid Club on Jalan Dewi Sri in Kuta on Monday, August 8, 2016, involving members of an international motorcycle club – Satudarah.

As reported by Balipost.com, police are seeking four members of the motorcycle club suspected of being main players in the altercation. The spokesman of the Denpasar Police, Kombes Pol. Hadi Purnomo, said on Tuesday, August 9, 2016: “We are coordinating with the immigration office at Ngurah Rai International Airport. If these four people show up, we are asking that they be immediately detained. Their identities have been handed to immigration. They have not been blacklisted, we are anticipating that they will try to flee to Holland.”

Purnomo told the press that the members of the Dutch motorcycle group had drunk large quantities of alcohol at the Pyramid Club. When the Club decided it was closing time at 4:30 am, the members of the motorcycle club objected and demanded that their party be allowed to continue with a fight breaking out shortly thereafter. Those protesting the closing were joined by more uniformed members of Satudarah at 6:00 am when they began throwing stones and helmets at the front of the Pyramid Club.

Police have interviewed employees of the Pyramid Club, security staff and members of the Satudarah motorcycle club.

Police are now tightening surveillance of motorcycle clubs in Bali, with special attention given to foreign bike gangs. A number incidents have been reported to police. “We have monitored a two-day event at the Hotel Kartika Plaza in Kuta to ensure safety and security are maintained. The closing event held at the Boshe Discothèque was also monitored. These (events) have been safe. In fact, when these events finished we provided an escort back to the hotel,” said Purnomo.

Police say the visit to the Pyramid Club was not part of the official program of the motorcycle club event and a private initiative by some of the members. The number of members attending the earlier party at the Boshe Discotheque included a much large number of 150 people.

In assessing the damage from the incident at the Pyramid Club, one member of the Dutch Satudarah Motorcycle Club was struck by a broken bottle and not stabbed as reported earlier. The bottle attack resulted in a head wound measuring 1.5 x 2 centimeters. Others suffered broken legs, bruises, and head injuries requiring medical attention.

Police say that their investigation of what took happen is being thwarted to some degree by the fact that some members of the Dutch Motorcycle Club have already flown back to their home countries.


Tourist, Can You Spare me a Dime?
Authorities in Ubud Having Little Success in Dissuading Beggars from Working its Streets

Local Community Police (Satpol PP) in Ubud, Gianyar Regency undertook surprise sweeps in the Catus Pata Area on Monday, August 8, 2016, that, at the end of the day, netted 23 beggars.

Beritabali.com reports the sweeps were undertaken due to the beggars’ violation of Regional Law Number 12 of 1992 on cleanliness and public order. The raids and round up of beggars were led directly by the head of operations for public order in Gianyar, I Wayan Suala Susila.

According to Susila, of the 23 beggars taken into custody, the majority were children under the age of 10, with all those detained originating from Karangasem. The beggars are seen by officials as a blight on the tranquility and comfort of the tourist center of Ubud and a threat to public order. “This is more the case in Ubud, a tourism area mostly visited by foreign travelers, where the beggars can upset their tranquility,” added Suala.

Sula said that all the beggars netted in the sweep were taken to the Satpol PP Gianyar office for processing before being handed over the to Social Service Department of the Regency.

The chief of the SatPol PP in Gianyar, Dewa Gede Suartika, said his officers are largely powerless against the beggars, able only to urge the public not to give donations to roadside beggars. Suartika said most the beggars were capable of other employments, with children being added to the “begging crews” to play on the sympathies of tourists. The SatPol PP chief lamented that once children learn the art of begging it is virtually impossible to lure them to more meaningful work.

“We have counseled the beggars and returned them to their home villages, but the attraction of Gianyar as a tourism area removes any reluctance on their part to return (and beg) again,” explained Suartika.


A Flying Squad of Criminals
Police Arrest Two and Seek Two More in Connection with 30 Robberies in Bali

Officers from the Criminal Division of the Bali Police have arrested two of four thieves victimizing expatriates living on the Island and gathered evidence linking the gang to some 30-crime scenes.

As reported by Beritabali.com, AKBP Masdianto of the Bali Police Command said on Thursday, August 11, 2106, that a suspect named Dewo was taken into custody at his boarding house on Jalan Sagina I in Denpasar on Sunday, July 24, 2016 at 5:30 am. While inspecting his accommodation, police found a bayonet, dagger, screwdrivers, L wrenches and a Varios motorcycle with Bali license plates.

Based on information obtained from Dewo, police made a subsequent arrest of Andi Ilham Atio (35), also known as Ilang, on Friday, August 5, 2016, in Makassar, South Sulawesi.

Police continue to seek to other men identified only by their initials AM (40) and IF (45).

Masdianto all four men were natives of Makassar. Three of the 30 crime scenes have been identified as residences used by foreigners.

The subject three villas include one occupied by a Russian, Yulia Naturnia (36) on Jalan Pantai Berawa, North Kuta that was robbed on March 28, 2016, at 1:00 pm when the thieves made off with a safe containing jewelry, a handphone , camera and a laptop. The total loss was put at Rp. 300 million.

The crime gang also robbed a rented resident on Jalan Poh Gading in Jimbaran on May 10, 2016, at 8:00 am. The victim in that theft was a Dutch national, Koen Ruisch (26), who lost, money, a laptop, and a camera worth Rp. 77 million.

There was also a theft on May 22, 2015,on Jalan Bongkeker in Jimbaran at 10:00 pm. The victim in that robbery was Maxim Pavlovskyiy who reported the theft of jewelry, Ipad and Iphone worth Rp.90 million.

Police say that one of the criminals would carefully survey a future victim’s residence, noting times when the residence would be left empty and then summon his three accomplices to fly in from Makassar for the actual robbery.

The group was also reported to be busy in Bali breaking the windows of parked cars to steal money from bank customers. The group also would undertake snatch and run robberies on Jalan Danau Tempe and at a night spot on Jalan Legian in Kuta.

One thief told police he held 30 telephones owned by foreign nationals that he had stolen. He also admitted to breaking open motorcycle saddles on Jalan Achmad Yani and Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai.

Pro-Reclamation Group Demands Audit of Funding Source for Demonstrations Against Benoa Bay Project

A group of people supporting the reclamation of Benoa Bay in Bali visited the Information Commission (KI) of the Province of Bali in Renon on Wednesday, August 8, 2016, to demand that ProBALI and other groups staging demonstrations against the controversial reclamation project account for their funding sources. As reported by Beritabali.com, the group demanded that the leader of the ForBALI group, Wayan Gendo Suardana, be financially audited.

Gede Subudi of the Bumi Bali Bagus Foundation said: “We come to ask the source of funding for the demonstrations (against reclamation). Gendo says these are paid from his own funds. This needs to be audited by the authorities. This is the reason we have come here today.”

Subudi said the people of Bali need to know the source of funding for the anti-reclamation movement because such protests are presented as being performed “in the name of the Balinese people.”

Subudi criticized the anti-reclamation protests saying they frighten the public, and the name of the Governor and Cabinet Ministers are defamed by protestors. Subudi said such behavior is not a true reflection of the Balinese character.

Separately, the public action group Bali Corruption Watch (BCW) has joined the growing chorus of those calling for the mega-development driven by PT Tirta Wahana Bali Internasional (PT TWBI) that is owned by businessman Tomy Winata to be investigated an account in detail for the Rp. 1 trillion claimed to have been spent to date in pursuit of the reclamation project.

Product Update

Bali Safari & Marine Park has again proven its commitment to quality and ecologically minded tourism by winning four prestigious awards at the 2016 Bali Tourism Awards presented at a gala award ceremony held at The Trans Resort Bali on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.

The 40-hectare Park located on the outskirts of Bali’s capital of Denpasar won recognition in four categories at this year’s award program: Bali’s Leading Theme Park, Bali’s Leading Thematic Resort (Mara River Lodge), Bali’s Leading Tourism Show (Bali Agung Show) and Bali’s Leading Restaurant (Tsavo Lion Restaurant).

Leaders from across the entire Bali’s tourism industry attended the star-studded award program, including the general manager of the Bali Safari and Marine Park, William Santoso, together with the relevant divisional managers from the Park.

The Bali Tourism Awards are the initiative of the Indonesia Travel and Tourism Awards (ITTA) that have recognized achievement and excellence in the Nation’s Hospitality and Tourism Industry for the past six years. The latest BTA Awards represents the second consecutive year that Bali Safari and Marine Park has won a range of honors in the annual program.

Funny Money
Police Bust Counterfeit US Money Racket in Bali

On Monday, August 8, 2016, at 4:00 pm the Denpasar Police arrested four people suspected to be part of a counterfeit currency ring operating from a base in Bandung, West Java. In the coordinated round of arrests, 4 members of the crime syndicate were arrested and counterfeit U.S. dollars with a face value of Rp. 7.2 billion were found concealed in two large bags.

NusaBali says police arrested Lim Fo Khuan alias Aliong (42), Edi Efendi Thjin alias Philip, Jarot alias Akim alias Aming (46), and Neng Tju alias Merry (62). A fifth member of the group Andi alias Acong managed to escape arrest and is being sought by police.

Police arrested the first suspect, Edi Efendi Thjin alias Philip, at 4:00 pm at the Inna the Grand Bali Beach Hotel in Sanur. Two more suspects, Jarot alias Akim alias Aming and Lim Fo Khuan alias Aliong were arrested at the Hotel Taman Wisata on Jalan Nangka in Denpasar on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 at 1:00 am. Police say Jarot is the mastermind of the crime syndicate.

A spokesman for the Denpasar police, Kombes Hadi Purnomo, said the criminals would pose as property purchasers to be used for development. Police tracked the group attempting to purchase a 3-are (300 square meter) plot of land including a building owned by Darwin Iskandar on Jalan Sedap Malam in East Denpasar. Police say the group would meet at the Inna The Grand Bali Beach and assign specific roles in the criminal plot.

The victim, Darwin Iskandar, reportedly gave Rp. 200 million to the perpetrators under the guise of lending money to gamble in the room at the hotel.

Lim Fo Khuan initially met Darwin Iskandar on Friday, August 5, 2016, posing as a land agent. He then invited Darwin to the nearby hotel to meet with Edi Efendi to discuss a price. Two days later on Sunday, August 7, 2016, Darwin returned to the hotel to meet Aliong (Merry) in rooms #338 to discuss the technicalities of payment.

The criminals invited Darwin back to the hotel during the following week in a ploy to build confidence and persuade him the group was serious in their intent to purchase land.

An elaborate false scenario was played out before Darwin in which the “actual” purchaser of his land named “Linda” was said to be on her way to Bali to purchase his land, only to postpone her trip at the last moment. Two of the group played out a scene in which they discussed gambling debts of Rp. 6 billion, showing Darwin a bag containing a large sum of U.S. currency to be used in the coming land purchase.

The group continued their theatrics, asking Philip to gamble against a betting pot of Rp. 3 billion. Claiming to only have Rp. 2.8 billion, the group persuaded Darwin to lend Rp. 200 million to the group so the gambling session could go ahead.

Darwin returned to the hotel a short time later with the requested Rp. 200 million and proceeded to watch the "actors" gamble in front of Darwin with Philip emerging as the winner.

Becoming suspicious, Darwin Iskandar left the hotel room and contacted the hotel’s security that immediately detained Philip. Meanwhile, the four remaining members of the syndicate fled from the hotel.

Philip was taken to the South Denpasar Police Precinct together with his suitcases of money containing U.S. Dollars found to be counterfeit.

Darwin was relieved to hear from police that the Rp. 200 million lent to the crime syndicate was still intact.

Meanwhile three of the four who fled the scene of the staged gambling session were later arrested at various locations in Bali.  Andi alias Acong, however, remains on the run.

Police say that those connected with the crimes of trying to pass counterfeit money could be charged with crimes that carry potential prison terms of 15 years behind bars.


Helping the Bali Starling Stage a Comeback
Local Group Wins Award for Propagating Endangered Bali Starling

Indonesia’s Minister of the Environment and Forestry, Dr. Ir. Siti Nurabaya, has given an award to I Ketut Gede Jiwa Artana and Bird Song Breeders Group (Kelompok Penangkar Kicau Bali) for dedication and success in breeding the Bali Starling.

The Bali Starling is known as the Bali myna (Leucopsar Rothschild), also known as Rothschild's mynah or Bali starling In Bali, this bird is locally known as “Jalak Bali” or “Curik Bali.”

With a critically endangered wild population estimated to stand at less than 100 birds, Ketut Gede Jiwa Artana was recognized during a celebration of the National Nature Conservation Day held at the West Bali National Park on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 for his and his group’s work on behalf of breeding and propagating the endangered Bali Starling.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Ketut Gede Jiwa Artana expressed thank for the award and told the press of the many challenges he faced together with his group of Bali Starling enthusiasts in trying to enlarge the population of the bird that has become the official mascot of the Island of Bali.

Beginning with an initial breeding stock of two Bali Starlings purchased in Central Java for Rp, 15 milllion in 2012.

“This was a very heavy beginning. I had to sell a cow to pay this amount,” explained Artana.

Over time the birds multiplied and with help from the chairman of the Tabanan House of Representatives (DPRD-Tabanan) and a loan from the bank, better cages were built and eventually three breeding pairs of Bali Starlings were managed by the Group.

Over time, further assistance was received by the Agency for the Conservation of Natural Resources (BKSDA) to the point where today good cages play home to hundreds of birds that include at least 50 breeding pairs.

Today, Artana and his group have become leading proponents of community efforts to protect and preserve the Bali Starling.

Leadership Worth Emulating in Bali
Purwakarta in West Java Cracks Down on Underage Drivers with No-Nonsense Punishments for Kids, Parents and Schools

Kompas.com reports decisive steps taken by the Regent of Purwakarta, West Java to prevent the death and injury of underage children operating motorcycles - steps that are worthy of consideration by police and officials in Bali.

The Regent of Purwakarta, Dedi Mulyadi, has formally forbidden students from driving motorized vehicles to and from schools, imposing strict penalties on both the children operating such vehicles (primarily motorcycles), their parents and the schools.

The action was taken by the Regent in response to needless death and injuries connected to children as young as grade school age (10-12 years) driving to and from school.

us accidents involving young children are a frequent occurrence with police and school officials bowing to pressure from students and their parents; turning a blind eye to the problem, despite mounting carnage on the the Nation's roadways.

Among the sanctions imposed under the rules issued by Mulyadi for Purwakarta calls for students caught driving motorcycles to school to be held back for one year or even expelled from school.

Dedi Mulyadi explained that the new rules were needed for the following reasons:
  • The Regent’s ruling enforces existing laws that that stipulate drivers must be 17 years of age in order to legally operate any motor vehicle. Most high school students are under this age. And, clearly junior high and grade student are all under the age of 17.
  • The Regent insists that children under the age of 17 years lack the psychological maturity to operate vehicles, putting them at greater risk of accident.
  • The regent also said that motor vehicles should be used for productive pursuits and have the potential to distract students from their studies and encourage careless behavior.
  • Mulyadi also blamed the use of motorcycles by underage children as supporting a consumer mentality among the young. Many parents feel compelled to go into debt to buy motorcycles for their children. The Regent complained that many parents sell their land to buy a motorcycles for their child.
  • The Purwakarta leader also blamed motorcycle use by young children as inimical to creativity. Children, he insists, will joy ride on their motorcycles, losing interest in the family livestock and farming fields in favor of non-creative pursuits.
  • Finally, the Regent linked the use of motorcycles by students to an increase in fights and dangerous motor races held by students.
  • Despite existing rules against underage drivers, a 16-year-old Junior high student in Purwakarta, Fitra Gema Ramadan, drove a motor vehicles into a group of 5 school children crossing a road, causing the death of a 6-year-old grade school student and injuring four others.

The Purwakarta Regent said he is determined to prevent more deaths and injuries suffered by young children. His rules call for sanctions on the child, his parent and his school if they are found to be driving without a driver license.

Signs of a Lackluster Real Estate Recovery
Bank Indonesia: Housing Cost Growth in Bali Slowing

The State News Agency Antara reports that a survey conducted by Bank Indonesia show that property prices in the province of Bali during the second trimester of 2016 grew by only 1.48%, a rate lower than the 1.87% recorded in the first three months of the year.

The head of the Bank Indonesia's Bali office, Causa Iman Karana, said in Denpasar on Friday, August 12, 2016, said the slow down in real estate costs applies to all types of housing, with the lowest rate of growth affecting large homes.

“Large homes’ prices increased 1.44% in the first trimester of 2016 and dipped to 0.82% in the second trimester.

Meanwhile, medium-sized private residences increased in price by 2.19% in the first trimester of 2016 and only 1.92% in the following three months.

Small private residences increased in price by 1.98% in the first trimester 2016 and 1.7% in the second trimester.

Causa ascribed the factors driving increases in home prices as the increasing cost of building supplies, increasing wages paid to construction workers, the increasing cost of permits and licenses and the added cost of core services for housing projects.

Most home purchasers and builders are using loans from banks or internal funding sources, with bank funding comprising 52% of available funds and 33% from self-funding sources. The remaining 15% of funds used for residential projects come from the down payments paid by new homeowners.

Causa told the press that Home Credit Programs (Kredit Pemilikan Rumah - KPR) remains the preferred way to finance a home purchase.

Bank Indonesia predicts housing prices in the third trimester of 2016 will increase 1.86%, a rate higher than the second trimester of the year.

In the third trimester of 2016, the largest increase is predicted to occur in medium-sized housing (2.98%), followed by small residences (1.33%) and large residences (1.26%).


Snatch and Run
Snatch Thieves in Sanur, Bali Targeting Both Tourists and Local Residents

Tribun-Bali.com reports that an Australian tourist, Juliana Britto, was attacked while peacefully peddling a bicycle in the Sanur area of Bali on Saturday, August 13, 2016.

Britto was the victim of a botched attempt by a purse-snatcher. The woman told police that the entire incident unfolded in a matter of moments as she returned to her accommodation following a visit to the Beach in Sanur. As she pedaled a bicycle across Jalan Kesari, a man on a motorcycle grabbed a beach bag kept in her bike's handlebar basket. In the ensuing struggle, Julia was tossed to the pavement where she suffered cuts and abrasions. Unable to obtain control of the bag, the robber ended up dragging the Australian woman down the road for several meters.

When the determined woman hung on to her bag, the thief, fearful that he would soon be set upon by local residents, drove off empty-handed.

The woman reported the attempted theft and her injuries to the Batujimbar Banjar and then filed a report with the police.

Observers say snatch thefts in broad daylight are not uncommon Sanur. About one month ago, a tourist walking on Jalan Duyung, Banjar Semawang was robbed by a man also using a motorcycle.

Police in Sanur have separately confirmed that snatch thefts against walking tourists and locals in Sanur are on the increase. That some of these attacks are happening during daylight hours shows a high degree of self-confidence on the part of the perpetrators.

A ‘Leader’ Gets Grounded for Stupidity
East Indonesia Lawmaker Amir Faisal Souwakil Thrown Off Trigana Air Flight for Joking a Bomb was in His Bag

A member of the South Buru Regency House of Representative (DPRD-Buru Selatan), Amir Faisal Souwakil, was forced to disembark a Trigana Air Flight set to depart from Ambon to Namrole, South Buru after suggesting to the flight crew that he was carrying a bomb inside his hand luggage.

As reported by Kompas.com, the incident took place on Sunday, August 14, 2016, when the Gerinda Party legislator was traveling with a group of fellow DPRD-Buru Selatan members. Told by the Trigana Air stewardess, named Hera, that he should stow one bag in the luggage rack and hold on to his other bag, Amir responded saying that the bag he was holding contained a bomb.

The stewardess asked Amir what he said and he repeated asked not to be bothered because the bag in his hand contained a bomb.
