LOS ANGELES — A judge has approved a settlement between Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend over child support payments for their 6-year-old daughter. The agreement approved by Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon on May 30 calls for Berry to pay ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry $16,000 a month or nearly $200,000 a year to support their daughter. The Oscar-winning actress will also pay for their daughter’s tuition, but the former couple will split health care expenses. The order also calls for Berry to pay her ex-boyfriend a retroactive payment of $115,000 and $300,000 to his attorneys to cover the costs of their custody dispute. Berry and Aubry, a model, were involved in a custody dispute in 2012, and a judge blocked her from moving their daughter to France. Gordon’s order only affects child support payments. Berry has an 8-month-old son with her husband, Olivier Martinez.

FIFA opens its 64th Congress under the cloud of a corruption scandal surrounding the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, which has drawn rebukes from some of the world football body’s biggest sponsors. Sao Paulo is meanwhile facing headaches of its own after subway workers threatened to resume a damaging strike on Thursday, the day the world’s eyes turn to the Brazilian mega-city for the start of a World Cup whose build-up has been plagued by delays, overspending and protests. The workers voted Monday to suspend their five-day-old strike, which had caused massive traffic jams and cut off subway service to Corinthians Arena, the stadium hosting the opening ceremony and kick-off. Officials are hard-pressed to avoid more problems as a billion people worldwide tune in to the game on TV. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and 12 heads of state and government will be in the stadium, which workers are rushing to finish on time. Work on the 12 host stadiums has been overshadowed by accidents that have killed eight workers, including three at

Corinthians Arena. That together with construction delays, ballooning budgets and the shelving of promised infrastructure projects has fueled anger over the World Cup. Brazil has been hit by a wave of strikes and protests ahead of the tournament and elections in October in which President Dilma Rousseff is seeking a second term. Rising inflation and a sluggish economy have dented Brazilians’ enthusiasm for the World Cup. In a nation with a wide and highly visible gap between rich and poor, critics say the more than $11 billion for the tournament would have been better spent on education, health, housing and transport. Strike ultimatum

Sao Paulo’s subway workers had been facing growing pressure to end the latest strike, which stranded many of the system’s 4.5 million daily riders. A court ruled Sunday that the strike was illegal and slapped their union with a $222,000-a-day fine.

On Monday, police cracked down on picketing workers, detaining 13 of them, and fired tear gas to break up a protest in their support. Authorities also fired 42 employees for “just cause,” accusing them of vandalism, blocking commuters and inciting people to jump turnstiles. Union president Altino Melo dos Prazeres said workers would resume their walkout Thursday if the fired employees were not re-hired. The union is seeking a raise of 12.2 percent, but the government is offering only 8.7 percent. At the same time FIFA will be wrapping up its congress of world football federations, where president Sepp Blatter is expected to announce he will seek a fifth four-year term in the sport’s most powerful job. That however will likely be overshadowed by allegations a former Qatari football boss paid more than $5 million in bribes to win the vote to host the 2022 tournament. The scandal has sparked calls for a re-vote and led five of FIFA’s biggest sponsors -- Hyundai, Coca Cola, Adidas, Sony and Visa -- to demand a full investigation. The Belgian and Nigerian teams are meanwhile due to arrive Tuesday. After that just three of the 32 teams will be missing: South Korea, Ghana and Portugal, all expected Wednesday.

Police secured totally 18.3 kg of dried marijuana after arresting Juwarso, 26, and Ahmad Imron Rosidi, 34, for smuggling marijuana into Kerobokan Prison.

Smuggling of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison

Police secure 18.5 kg of marijuana

NEGARA - Although having been arrested by officials, the poultry smuggling from Java to Bali via Gilimanuk remains to happen. Until Monday morning (Jun 9), the officers at Gilimanuk could foil the smuggling of hundreds of poultry at checkpoint II. The perpetrator attempted to deceive the officials by passing through checkpoint early in the morning at 2:45 a.m. An L 300 pickup truck with freight covered in tarpaulin entered the vehicle document checkpoint. The officers suspected the goods loaded after smelling duck odor. By police, the driver Adi Subroto from Banyuwangi was asked to open the tarpaulin. Police suspicion was then proved, where hundreds of poultry consisting of duck, Muscovy duck and chickens were confined in a fruit box. In addition, the officers also found fresh duck meat ready for sale. From the information given by the driver, the poultry belonged to Ari Susanti, 35, from Purwodadi hamlet, Kradjan village, Gambiran Banyuwangi. Having been secured, it was then further checked and the pickup truck carried 26 Muscovy ducks, 270 ducks, 6 chickens and 30 kg of duck meat. Similarly, the owner did not have any document related to the poultry consignment to Bali. From the recognition, it was known if the hundreds of poultry would be delivered to Denpasar. Such an action was committed every two weeks and it was the first time to be caught by the officers. Furthermore, hundreds of the poultry along with the vehicle was handed over to the Agricultural Quarantine Office at Gilimanuk for further processing. Chief of Jembrana Police, Harry Hariyadi, accompanied by Jembrana Police Criminal Investigation Unit Satrio Wibowo when asked for his confirmation justified the arrest. According to him, the legal process was conducted at Gilimanuk Marine Police, while the evidence was commended at Gilimanuk Quarantine Office. The perpetrator was charged under Article 6 of Law No.16/1992 on Animal and Plant Quarantine. (kmb26)

MANGUPURA - Hard work of Badung Police Drugs Unit performing the development against the smuggling of 3 kg of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison (Class A Denpasar), Saturday (Jun 7) should be appreciated. Police officers coming to the boarding house of Besit on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung, Kerta Sari hamlet, Panjer, South Denpasar, found marijuana weighing 15.3 kg, wrapped in 16 packs. Thus, there are now totally 18.3 kg of dried marijuana secured in the Badung Police. Chief of Badung Police Drugs Unit, Bambang Gede Artha, said on Monday (Jun 9) that after arresting Juwarso, 26, and Ahmad Imron Rosidi, 34, smuggling marijuana into Kerobokan Prison, the Badung Police officers immediately developed the case. Moreover, it had been proved by the mobile phone belonging to the man from Jember, East Java, containing the message ‘the marijuana weighs 3 kg, right? “From the SMS of Juwarso, he can no longer dodge,” he said. In addition, police doing the search to the pants’ pocket of Juwarso found a key of boarding room. From the discovery of the key, police then made a development to the boarding house on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung, Kerta Sari hamlet, Panjer, South Denpasar. “Once secured in Kerobokan Prison, the officers took the perpetrators directly to the boarding room, which according to Juwarso, it was the boarding room

of Besit,” he explained. Further, he said that in the boarding house on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung Juwarso took 3 packs of dried marijuana, prior to smuggling it into the Kerobokan Prison. “Juwarso admitted to take the marijuana at the boarding room of Besit around 12:00 a.m. to be smuggled into Kerobokan Prison,” he said. Unexpectedly, the officers searching the boarding room found 16 packs placed in a neat row under the sink. Having been checked, the packs covered in tapes contained dried marijuana, weighing totally 15.3 kg. “The 16 packs of marijuana were found under the sink, around 10:00 p.m.,” he explained. When interrogated, said Bambang, Juwarso admitted not to know where the dried marijuana came from. He just implemented the order of Besit to take three packs and they were then sent to Kerobokan

Prison. “The result of interim interrogation told if Juwarso first saw marijuana in the boarding house of Besit,” he explained. When asked where the remaining marijuana packs were taken by the perpetrator, Bambang did not want to answer. He reasoned if the Badung Police Drug Unit officers were still investigating the case. In addition, he said if Ahmad Imron Rosidi was not involved in this case. “Imron was just delivering, we’re now hunting Besit,” he said. Previously, it was reported if the smuggling of 3 kg of marijuana committed by Juwarso, 26, and Ahmad Imron Rosidi, 34, was still under investigation of the Badung Police Drugs Unit. Up to these days, it was not known if the smuggling of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison was deliberately committed by Juwarso based on the order of Besit. Meanwhile, Besit had escaped out of Bali.

Tech giants scramble for Levy rate increases 900 percent lead on ‘Internet of Things’ Marine conservation area of Nusa Penida inaugurated

Bali Post

DENPASAR - The Marine Conservation Area (KKP) in Nusa Penida was finally inaugurated by Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Sharif C Sutardjo, Monday (Jun 9). After the ceremony, the KKP Nusa Penida was planned to be managed by a regional enterprise (BUMD) under the Klungkung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs (PPK). With the inauguration, the levy rate of entering the KKP was planned to rise 900 percent from IDR 7,000 to IDR 70,000 per person.

WASHINGTON - It’s not just smartphones and tablets anymore. The world’s tech giants are now battling over a wider array of connected devices, from refrigerators to cars to wristwatches. Announcements in recent days from Apple and Samsung made clear they are staking their claim to the “Internet of Things” following Google’s announcement earlier this year that it was creating a new Android platform for wearable electronics. “The Internet of Things is the next big platform,” said Roger Kay, an analyst with Endpoint Technologies Associates. “These are potentially billions of devices. That’s a big market, so every consortium is lining up for that.” A study released by research firm IDC said the market for the Internet of Things (IoT) will grow from $1.9 trillion in 2013 to $7.1 trillion in 2020 as businesses and consumers adopt smart technology for homes, cars and a variety of accessories. Apple unveiled Monday its new mobile operating system iOS 8 along with HealthKit software to manage personal healthcare and HomeKit for home appliances, while encouraging developers to create services for the iOS operating system used in iPhones and iPads. Apple opens up

“Apple iOS 8 has the beginnings of a full-fledged platform supporting

IoT, you can see it with their health and fitness hooks and their ability to entertain more third party devices,” said Compass Intelligence chief mobile analyst Gerry Purdy. But Apple is following its own path, aiming for tighter control and with less interoperability by limiting connections with non-Apple devices. “It may be that Apple will just colonize a few areas and do it well,” said Kay. Samsung, meanwhile, is jumping into the fray with Tizen, an opensource operating system that could take on iOS and Android for connected devices. Frank Gillett at Forrester Research said Samsung -- by far the most successful maker of Android phones and tablets -- wants to distance itself from Google in the next phase of technology. “I think Samsung is in a challenging and difficult place,” Gillett told AFP. Gillett said that with Tizen, Samsung is aiming for “a multi-part software and services strategy to build sticky relationships with customers to keep them buying hardware.” The Internet of Things will likely be big enough for several platforms and

The analyst said that the market is unlikely to be a “duopoly,” and that

PlayStation TV to soon hit US-Europe Agence France-Presse

LOS ANGELES - Sony Computer Entertainment on Monday said a PlayStation TV home entertainment system will debut in North America and Europe by the end of this year. The small, stand-alone PS TV box will be priced at $99 here and 99 euros in Europe. A bundle containing a wireless video game style controller, a memory card, and a “LEGO: The Movie” video game from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment will sell for $140. PS TV is designed as a platform for games, films, television shows. music, and even orignal programming streamed from the Internet or PlayStation consoles. The first PS TV original series, titled “Power” and based on a graphic novel of the same name, is in production and

casting is underway, writer Brian Michael Bendis said at a Sony press briefing on the eve of the Tuesday opening of the E3 video game show here. The story revolves around two homicide detectives who specialize in investigating suspicious deaths of people with super powers. “If a super hero falls dead from the sky or a notorious super villain is found dead in a gutter, that is their case,” Bendis said. “It is also about what a world with super heroes might really look like; how it would affect our culture.” PS TV will synch with a Sony online store for digital content, provided they are members of the PlayStation Network. The system has proven popular since it was released in Japan and other parts of Asian in November as PlayStation Vita TV, according to Sony.

there “is a whole other layer of complexity” to the market for the Internet of Things. For now, some analysts see Google as best positioned to benefit from the new phase of the Internet.

Bob O’Donnell at TECHnalysis Research said the Apple strategy “is creating a great reason to stick with Apple devices across all their main categories,” but added that “most Apple users don’t have all Apple devices.”

Facebook names ‘mobile messaging’ chief Agence France-Presse

SAN FRANCISCO - Facebook announced Monday it hired the top executive of eBay’s PayPal division to lead the social network’s efforts to boost its mobile messaging. David Marcus, who has been president of PayPal, was named to the new post as Facebook appeared set to focus increasingly on messaging. The California giant said separately it “accidentally” released a version of a new app called “Slingshot,” about which reports have been circulating for several weeks. Although Facebook did not specify the nature of the app, reports have said it would allow for sharing of photos and videos and compete with some startups offering similar services.

“Earlier today, we accidentally released a version of Slingshot, a new app we’re working on,” Facebook said in an email to AFP. “With Slingshot, you’ll be able to share everyday moments with lots of people at once. It’ll be ready soon, and we’re excited for you to try it out.” The appointment of Marcus also comes with Facebook preparing to absorb the popular messaging service WhatsApp, in a deal worth a whopping $19 billion that was the biggest acquisition ever for Facebook. Facebook’s strategy appears centered around breaking up its service into separate applications that can create their own customer base. The company earlier this year split off its Facebook Messenger service as a standalone app.

It was announced by the Regent of Klungkung, Nyoman Suwirta, after accompanying the Minister Sharif C. Sutardjo at Batununggul village, Nusa Penida. Having been inaugurated, the regional enterprise managing the KKP would be immediately formed. In addition, the amount of levy would also be discussed further with relevant parties because the increase in levy should be protected by new regional bylaw. The Head of Klungkung Tourism and Culture Agency, Wayan Sujana, said on Monday that his party planned to raise the levy based on advice of various tourism practitioners and environmentalists. When compared to the other regions, the levy worth IDR 7,000 per person was considered low. “The rate at IDR 70,000, according to survey by a number of associations in the field of tourism, is considered very decent for the KKP tourism potential,” he said. Since it was launch as the Marine Conservation Area in 2008, the Culture and Tourism Agency charged the levy in accordance with Regional

Bylaw No.2 regarding the Tourist Attraction and Recreation. Thus, to determine the amount of new levy was required a new legal instrument in the form of regional bylaw by the Klungkung County, which would be coordinated with the Klungkung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. Later on, the regional enterprise would be under the agency and independent. “When it has been under the agency, it will be definitely well organized in accordance with the rules,” he said. Meanwhile, the Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Sharif C. Sutardjo, said the inauguration of the Marine Conservation Area was expected to be an example to preserve the marine ecosystem in Bali. So, with the protection, the coral reef would live naturally and fish life would increase that could provide the benefits for the survival of society. With this designation, the Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida would be officially and totally in operation, including the application of zoning rules, the long-term management plan, code of conduct for marine tours

IBP/Bagiarta

The Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida with the area of 20,057 hectares covering coastal and marine ecosystems was quite complete such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass. and entrance fees into the Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida for travelers. “The government is targeting to protect coastal and marine area of 20 million hectares in Indonesia through the establishment of the Marine Conservation Area in 2020,” he explained. Sharif asserted that his ministry had made an E-KKP3K method to assess the effectiveness of the Marine Conservation Area management in Indonesia. So, it would not only

target the acreage, but also the level of management effectiveness in the field. The Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida with the area of 20,057 hectares covering coastal and marine ecosystems was quite complete such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass. Based on a survey conducted by the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) in the waters of Nusa Penida, there were about 296 species of coral and 576 species of fish. The area of coral reefs in the waters of Nusa

Penida amounted to 1,419 hectares, 230 hectares of mangroves (13 species) and 108 hectares of seagrass (8 types). In the waters of Nusa Penida, there were also large marine fauna or marine mega-fauna such as manta ray, whale, dolphin, turtle and shark. Even, the water of Nusa Penida was the home to rare and unique sunfish with a large enough size of about 2-3 meters. Typically, the fish icon of Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida came to surface in July-September. (kmb31)

Benoa Bay designed to be conservation area Bali Post

MANGUPURA - The Regional Bylaw Draft on Detailed Spatial Plan (RDTR) and Zoning Regulations in Badung County is currently under discussion. In the regional bylaw draft on Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation for South Kuta subdistrict, the Benoa Bay area is designed to be included in the conservation subzone for coastal territory and small islands. If the Regional Bylaw Draft on Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation can be established, the reclamation of Benoa Bay will not be allowed. Special Committee of the Detailed Spatial Plan also hoped the amendment to Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita would no longer tamper the area of Benoa Bay. “In terms of regulation, both Regional Spatial Plan and Detailed Spatial Plan (RDTR) at issue, Badung wants to secure the Benoa Bay,” said

Chairman of the Detailed Spatial Plan Special Committee of Badung, I Wayan Suyasa. He explained the points arranged in the regional bylaw draft included the Regional Bylaw on Regional Spatial Plan of Badung having been referred to the rules of central government including the Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita. On that account, if later on Benoa Bay had been designated as a conservation area in the Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation, then in terms of rules, the reclamation in the local area would be prohibited. “As a rule, the conservation area is not allowed to be reclaimed. So, we expect the amendment to the Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita will not touch the Benoa Bay, because it can have an impact on the rules in the region,” he said. In the draft discussed by the Special Committee of the Detailed Spatial

Plan in the Badung House, the area of Benoa Bay was included in the sub-zone of Coastal Conservation and Small Islands. Distribution of subzone conservation and small islands included the conservation block of Pudut Island at Tanjung Benoa village, conservation block of mangrove forest protection of the Ngurah Rai Grand Forest Park (Tahura) at Jimbaran village, Benoa village and Tanjung Benoa village, coral reef protection block, protection block of catch fishermen, seaweed farming protection block and buffer ecosystem block of Benoa Bay waters. Based on the regional bylaw draft, the conservation sub-zone in accordance with the utilization was divided into three core zone designations, namely the core zone, limited utilization zone and other zone. Area determination of these zones would be further defined by central government

through the Ministry of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. At the core zone designation, the activities allowed would include the absolute habitat protection and fish populations, marine life migration flow, protection of unique and vulnerable coastal ecosystems to change and protection of traditional cultural sites. Designation of limited utilization zone included the protection of habitat and fish population, marine tourism and recreation as well as religious ritual. Meanwhile, the designation of other zones posed the zone outside the core zone and the zone of limited utilization because the function and condition was defined as a particular zone, a zone of rehabilitation. Meanwhile, the Head of the Badung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, said the water conservation area in Badung would be made

again a ground check to the area blocks that should be preserved or conserved. Benoa Bay, he said, was one of the areas getting particular concern. His party would discuss specifically about the coordinates or boundaries of Waters Conservation Area (KKP) of Benoa Bay by involving various elements of the community, NGOs and practitioners. “To what extent, their coordinates will be determined. We do hope that all can be patient because Benoa Bay is very strategic,” he said. Further, he explained that on Monday (Jun 9) was scheduled a declaration of Waters Conservation Area for the counties/municipality in Bali. In the activity under coordination of the Directorate General of Regional Development, Ministry of Home Affairs, each county/municipality in Bali would deliver their own draft. (kmb25)

Waste of swimming pool alleged to have polluted Lake Batur Bali Post

BANGLI - The Bangli Environment Agency (BLH) continued to test the water quality of Lake Batur in Kintamani. Based on the results of research made not long ago, it was revealed if the water of Lake Batur contained nitrite residue due to the use of fertilizer by farmers and chlorine exceeding the quality standard. Allegedly, such conditions were the result of pool sewage pollution of tourism service providers located around the lake.

Ex-personal secretary of former regent of Jembrana probed

It was announced by the Head of Bangli Environment Agency, Wayan Sukartana, accompanied by the Division Head of Environmental Impact Management Gusti Laksana, Monday (Jun 9). Sukartana described that based on the results of research conducted at four different locations, namely Trunyan, Songan, Kedisan Pier, and Kedisan cage, it was found the water condition of Lake Batur currently contained chlorine exceeding the quality standard of 2.1 ml/g. The amount was higher than the standard rate of 0.03 ml/g. His party estimated the increase in the chlorine content was caused by the amount of waste discharged directly into the lake such as by toilet sewage and swimming pool waste from the operation of tourism activities such as hotels and inns in the vicinity. According to Sukartana, most of the waste generated all this time had not passed through a proper processing so that it

NEGARA - Having probed the former regent of Jembrana, Gede Winasa, in the Negara Prison, Thursday (Jun 5), the Negara Prosecutor’s Office summoned the former personal secretaries of Winasa, Monday (Jun 6). The examination was conducted to explore more information from Winasa who was previously examined for seven hours for the allegation of corruption case related to his official trip (SPPD). The Special Crime Section Head of Negara Prosecutor’s Office, Putu Sauca Arimbawa Tusan, with permission from the Head of Negara Prosecutor’s Office said that in the invitation last Monday should be examined two former personal secretaries of Winasa, namely Putu Ariani and Komang Sri. However, Putu Ariani was unable to attend it because there were activities outside the town. The team would examine Putu Ariani on Friday. For this case, his party focused on the examination of both personal secretaries and three aides. Previously, both personal secretaries and the aides had been examined, but after getting information from Winasa, the prosecutor’s office

gave rise to such conditions. He added the presence of water hyacinth whose population was increasingly widespread in Lake Batur could be very useful to purify water quality of the lake. It included returning the water to normal condition. The water hyacinth would be considered a problem if it filled the lake. “Aside from harming, the water hyacinth is also good enough to control the condition of water pollution,” he said. He hoped the problems in Lake Batur could be addressed together, not only by government but also by society. The communities, especially those living around the lake, were expected not to dispose their waste directly into the lake. Rather, it should be processed first in order to maintain the water quality of the lake from pollution hazards. “We expect people to be aware, no longer dispose their waste directly into the lake because it can contaminate the water quality,” he added.

needed to cross check with the concerned. When examined, Winasa said if the official trip was entrusted to his personal secretary and aides. According to Sauca, having probed all the related parties, his party would immediately expose and determine the suspect. From the examination so far, the suspect would be possibly more than one person. Previously, for few times the Negara Prosecutor’s Office failed to probe the former regent of Jembrana, I Gede Winasa. Ultimately, the examination could be conducted on Thursday (Jun 5) in the Negara Prison because he was serving a sentence for graft in the composting plant. The examination was still limited to ask for information to Winasa about his official trips becoming the finding of the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) in 2010 and it harmed the state at IDR 600 million. Sauca mentioned that based on the results of examination conducted there were some official trips made by the former Regent Winasa in a few years. In the budget, it was mentioned to use Garuda Indonesia, but the realization he flew with Lion Air. (kmb26)

The campaign, labelled “Embracing APEC Wonderful Pekingese-Citizen Civilized Behavior Promotion,” also promises to crack down on jaywalking, drink driving and drivers refusing to stop at zebra crossings. The Beijing municipal government said in a press release that it aims to encourage “civilised orderly and courteous transport, to improve people’s overall quality to display (their) wonderfulness.” It follows a similar campaign ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which saw authorities target spitting, littering and disorderly lines for public transport. Beijing government Civilisation Office spokesman Han Longbin told reporters that the Olympic campaign had achieved results, but “people are still running red lights”. “We still need to promote better queueing, and we will depend on promoting civilisation and also legal measures,” he added, without giving details. Residents will be encouraged to tackle Beijing’s chronic smog by taking part in a “clean atmosphere blue day action,” which involves taking public transport and buying “green” products. Other behaviours due for censure include “making a racket”, smoking in public places and eating while on public transport. The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, which includes China and the United States, will see leaders from more than 20 countries and economies descend on Beijing in November.

Freak storms in Germany kill at least six

Agence France-Presse

BERLIN - Violent storms killed at least six people in western Germany overnight, felling trees and snarling road and rail traffic, authorities said Tuesday. Three people died in Duesseldorf when a towering poplar tree whipped by wind, hail and rain fell on a garden shed where they had sought shelter late Monday, the fire brigade reported. Another three people were killed in the same accident, two of them seriously. Falling trees also killed cyclists in Cologne and Krefeld, while a 49-yearold man in Essen collapsed during clean-up efforts and later died.

Rail company Deutsche Bahn reported “serious disturbances” to its train schedule as routes were obstructed by storm debris. Meanwhile several flights were hit by delays or cancelled at Duesseldorf airport. The storms came on the heels of record heat over the long Pentecost weekend and were sweeping toward the northeast of the country on Tuesday.

Surfer survives shark attack in Japan

Agence France-Presse

TOKYO - A 43-year-old man has been seriously injured after being attacked by a shark while surfing off central Japan, officials said Tuesday, warning local beachgoers to be alert. Tsuyoshi Takahashi, an offduty life guard, was rushed to hospital on Sunday afternoon after the shark sank its teeth into his left arm some 30 metres (100

feet) offshore, a fire department official said. The accident occurred while Takahashi was surfing with his colleagues in the Pacific off the Atsumi peninsula in Aichi, some 250 kilometre (155 miles) west of Tokyo, a spot well-known for its big waves. “He was seriously injured and got 30 stitches to the wound, but there is no threat to his life,” said the official, adding: “We are call-

ing on other surfers to be on the alert against sharks.” Japan’s long coastline is home to a variety of sharks, but attacks on people are relatively rare. The species of shark involved on Sunday was not known. According to the local government, the weekend incident was the first shark attack in the prefecture since 1995 when a fisherman was killed by a great white.

BUSINESS Rolls-Royce to sell luxury automobiles in Cambodia Associated Press

PHNOM PENH — Fabled luxury car maker Rolls-Royce will soon be marketing its goods in one of the world’s poorest countries: Cambodia. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced Monday that it has joined with a Cambodian business partner to open a showroom in the Cambodian capital next month. Rolls-Royce Asia-Pacific regional manager Paul Harris said his company signed a deal with HGB Group Co., Ltd. because it believed demand would grow along with Cambodia’s economy. Cambodia’s average per capita annual income, according to the World Bank, is just over $1,000, a bit less than one-half of 1 percent of the cost of the cheapest Rolls-Royce. However, a small but wealthy elite lives in the capital of the mostly rural nation, and it is not unusual to see various models of high-end Lexus automobiles passing by pedicabs in the city’s dusty streets. Harris said five Rolls-Royces have been sold in Cambodia since 2005. “Nobody would believe that such a luxury car would come to Cambodia,” said Minister for Industry and Handcrafts Cham Prasidh, who was present for the announcement. Cheaper Japanese models still dominate the market, but the upgrading of roads — which had suffered from war and neglect — and the rise in people’s living standards mean other car manufacturers from various countries are now entering the Cambodian market, he said.

German firm to set up in joint Korean Kaesong complex

Agence France-Presse

SEOUL - South Korea on Tuesday said it had green-lighted a German firm supplying industrial needles to set up as the first foreign company in the Kaesong joint industrial zone run with North Korea. Groz-Beckert will provide its needles to South Korean firms operating in the Kaesong complex, which opened in 2004 as a rare symbol of cross-border cooperation, the South’s unification ministry said. “It will be the first foreign company to do business there, although its office is not a manufacturing facility,” a ministry official told AFP. The office will be manned by

two North Korean workers and several staff from Groz-Beckert’s branch in South Korea. Kaesong, which lies 10 kilometres (six miles) on the North Korean side of the border, employs more than 50,000 North Koreans in around 120 South Korean light industrial firms. Pyongyang shut down the complex in April last year by withdrawing its workforce as military ten-

sions surged in the wake of North Korea’s third nuclear test. It re-opened five months later but talks on reforming the way Kaesong is managed have shown little progress. South Korea has been pushing hard for overseas involvement in the zone, believing the presence of foreign firms would make it harder for Pyongyang to shut down the complex in the future.

Bali rabies-free program attempted all this time seems to still leave a number of concerns. It happens because the number of bite cases by rabies-carrier animals remains very high.

TABANAN - Bali rabies-free program attempted all this time seems to still leave a number of concerns. It happens because the number of bite cases by rabies-carrier animals remains very high. In Tabanan, until April 2014, the total bite case reached 2,046 incidents. Of this amount, 582 victims were recorded not to get anti-rabies vaccine (VAR). “Not all cases of dog bites should be given anti-rabies vaccine, but depends on the condition of the dog,” explained the Head of Tabanan Health Agency, Nyoman Suratmika. He described that most bite cases were caused by stray dogs. On that account, they were quite risky to trigger rabies. Even, the average number of bite case could reach 15 to 20 cases per day. According to him, if there were dog bite victims, at least they needed three shots of anti-rabies vaccine. Firstly, they were given two shots, another shot on the seventh day and the last shot on the 21st day. For these actions, it was required four ampoules of anti-rabies vaccine. Further, he said the bite cases by the rabies-carrier animal were found in some rabies treatment centers, such as at rabies center of Tabanan Hospital and six Community Health Centers that provided inpatient anti-

rabies vaccine. Two of them were in Penebel and Baturiti. The dog bite cases recorded were only those reported by victims. Predictably, there were many similar cases that were not reported. Based on the data released by the Tabanan Health Agency, the dog bite cases continued to rise every month since the outbreak in 2008. A total of 7,102 incidents occurred in 2011, rose to 7,374 incidents (2012) and declined to only 6,042 incidents (2013), and until April 2014 it was recorded to reach 2,046 incidents. “In terms of the detailed data, through the years the amount always lies in the range of 500-600 cases every month,” he said. The cases of positive rabies dog bite on human in Tabanan last appeared when Balinese Hindus celebrated Ngembak Geni (the day after Nyepi) experienced by resident at Sekartaji hamlet, Sesandan village early April. The Livestock Agency team eventually moved quickly by performing mass vaccination as well as the elimination of stray dogs, especially those having a history of contact with dogs declared positive to rabies in accordance with the SOPs. Pursuant to the rules, the rabies handling should be expedited because it had something to do with the use of anti-rabies serum or antirabies vaccine. (kmb28)

Australia, Malaysia still to decide MH370 search costs Agence France-Presse

SYDNEY - Australia and Malaysia were Tuesday set to discuss the next phase of the search for missing Flight MH370, with the cost of the unprecedented mission on the agenda, officials said. Malaysia’s costs have so far been about onetenth of the US$84 million Australia expects to spend on the search for the plane which disappeared while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing three months ago. “The government has allocated Aus$89.9 million (US$84 million). I think about Aus$25 million of that is to go the defence force for the visual search they conducted,” said Angus Houston, head of the search’s Joint Agency Coordination Centre. An additional Aus$60 million has been allocated to the underwater operation in the southern Indian Ocean where the plane is believed to have crashed in Australia’s search and rescue zone. Malaysia’s Deputy Defence Minister Abdul Rahim Bakri is expected in Canberra later Tuesday for talks with Australian officials. He told journalists on Monday that the “costs will be shared 50-50 between Malaysia and Australia”. Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein

had earlier told parliament that Malaysia had spent 27.6 million ringgit (US$8.6 million) on fuel and food for equipment and personnel in the search. “The cost that we had to bear is relatively small compared to the other assets given by other countries used in the search,” he said. “I am proud that many of our friends have come forward to help in the search, and they bear their own expenses and have not made any claims from us.” Australia has said it would welcome other nations contributing to the cost of the next phase, an underwater probe of the sea bed over 60,000 square kilometres (24,000 square miles) where the plane is thought to have crashed. But Australia’s Treasurer Joe Hockey said Canberra would not shirk its responsibility to help find answers to what caused the plane to disappear. No debris from the Boeing 777 has been found despite a massive air and sea surface search.

Air strikes on ‘terrorist hideouts’ kill 15 Agence France-Presse

PESHAWAR - At least 15 people were killed as Pakistan carried out early morning air strikes Tuesday on a militant-infested tribal district, the military said, a day after a brazen Taliban assault on Karachi airport. A military statement said “nine terrorist hideouts were destroyed” in the raids, which came after the Taliban stormed Pakistan’s biggest airport killing at least 30 people in an all-night battle on Monday. The death toll from Tuesday’s strikes, in the restive Tirah Valley area of Khyber tribal district, could not be independently verified. Pressure has built on the military to act after the attack by at least 10 militants in Karachi, which left a nascent peace process in tatters and raised questions about how they were able to penetrate the airport in Pakistan’s economic hub. The air strikes are the latest in a succession of such attacks carried out by the Pakistani military in the tribal belt this year after talks with the Tehreeke-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) broke down. The last strikes were carried out in North Waziristan in late May, killing at least 75 people and stoking the migration of some 58,000 people away from the district in fear of a fuller ground-offensive that has been anticipated for years.

Murder trial opens for Sewol ferry captain and crew Agence France-Presse

Lee Joon-seok, the captain of the sunken South Korean ferry Sewol, arrives at Gwangju District Court in Gwangju, South Korea, Tuesday, June 10, 2014. Fifteen crew members from the sunken South Korean ferry were in court to enter pleas on charges that they were negligent and failed to save passengers in the disaster, which left more than 300 people dead or missing.

GWANGJU - With South Korean divers still searching for victims of April’s ferry disaster, the murder trial of 15 crew members opened Tuesday in a highly-charged atmosphere that raised concerns about a fair hearing. The trial began in the southern city of Gwangju in a packed courtroom which included grieving relatives of some of the 292 confirmed victims of the April 16 tragedy. Captain Lee Joon-Seok and three senior crew members are accused of “homicide through wilful negligence” -- a charge that falls between first-degree murder and manslaughter, but still carries the death penalty. Eleven other members of the crew are being tried on lesser charges of criminal negligence. The bulk of the charges arise from the fact that Lee and the others chose to abandon the 6,825-tonne Sewol ferry while hundreds of people were still trapped inside the heavily-listing vessel before it capsized. A handful of crew members who stayed and tried to guide passengers to safety were among those who died. The Sewol was carrying 476 passengers, including 325 students on a school trip, when it sank off the southwest coast. So far 292 have been confirmed dead, with 12 still unaccounted for as divers continue to search the submerged vessel for remaining bodies. The tragedy stunned South Korea, knocking the entire country off its stride and unleashing a wave of public anger, as it emerged that incompetence, corruption and greed had all contributed to the scale of the disaster. Much of that rage focused on Lee and his crew, especially after the coastguard released a video showing the captain, dressed in a sweater and underwear, scrambling to safety from the sinking ferry.

INDONESIA Prabowo defends rights record Agence France-Presse

JAKARTA - A presidential candidate who served as a general during Indonesia’s threedecade Suharto dictatorship has emotionally defended himself against alleged human rights abuses committed during his service in a televised election debate. Prabowo Subianto, who faces favourite Joko Widodo at the July 9 election, was a top military figure in the chaotic months before dictator Suharto was toppled by student protests in 1998. Following the strongman’s downfall, he admitted ordering the abduction of democracy activists and was discharged from the military for exceeding orders, but has never faced a civilian court. The ex-general is seen as a serious contender against Widodo, who is known by his nickname of Jokowi and won legions of fans during his time as Jakarta governor. However Prabowo’s past came back to haunt him late Monday during the first televised debate ahead of the election, when Widodo’s running mate, former vice president Jusuf Kalla, confronted him about the abuse allegations. “I know what you are implying, that I cannot protect human rights and that I am a human rights violator,” Prabowo said, his voice becoming emotional. “We (soldiers) in remote areas

tough questions about Prabowo’s past, and said he had been left floundering. The Jakarta Globe newspaper declared it a “victory for the people”, saying rights abuses against Prabowo had rarely been discussed openly in the past.

“Prabowo’s response to the question last night was pitiful and sadly unremorseful,” added the Jakarta Post daily. Widodo put in a confident performance in the debate, the first in a series of five ahead of the election, which will give him a boost fol-

lowing criticism of his poor public speaking skills. Observers predict a tight race. A recent poll put Widodo eight percent ahead of Prabowo, a far smaller lead than a few weeks ago, with surveys showing many voters still undecided.

Meanwhile state spending reached Rp1,650.56 trillion , or 10.67 percent higher than in 2012

but only 95.62 percent of the budget target set for 2013, Rizal said quoting the government’s report about state budget realization of 2013. He said budget deficit was Rp211.67 trillion or 38.08 percent larger than deficit in 2012. “In the 31 December 2013 balance sheet, the government recorded Rp66.59 trillion in unspent budget,” he said. He said assets were valued at Rp3,567.59 trillion, with liabilities at Rp2,652.10 trillion including

He said BPK has submitted the auditing results of Central Government Financial Report to the House of Representatives, the Regional Representative Council and the president.

MIAMI - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was slapped with a $5,000 fine for flopping after he over-exaggerated a foul in game two of the NBA finals, the league announced Monday. Wade drew a foul against San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili with just over four minutes left in the second quarter of Sunday’s contest. Wade was holding the ball near the sideline when Ginobili took a swipe at it, brushing the ball. Wade threw his head back and Ginobili was called for a personal foul by the referee. The Heat won the game 98-96 to level the best-of-seven series at one game each. Game three is Tuesday night at American Airlines arena in Miami.

MELBOURNE -? The Australian Grand Prix winner’s trophy will be named in honor of threetime Formula One champion Jack Brabham, who died on May 19 at the age of 88. Brabham is the only Formula One driver to win a world title in a car he designed and built himself â?? the rear-engine Brabham BT19 â?? in 1966. He is already recognized on the trophy which carries a laminated studded timber trim replica of the steering wheel from the race car that he used to win his first world title in 1959. He won the F1 world title again in 1960. Australian Grand Prix officials made the announcement Tuesday. Brabham will be given a state funeral on Wednesday on the Gold Coast in Queensland state, where he lived.

OSLO - Allyson Felix will seek out a further step back towards recovery after an injury-plagued 2013 when she races her preferred 200m at Wednesday’s Diamond League in Oslo. A four-time Olympic gold winner, Felix has been one of the dominant figures over the distance, winning three consecutive world titles, the first coming in Helsinki in 2005. Last season, however, was one to forget, the American winning only two Diamond races before crashing out of the Moscow world championships 200m with a hamstring injury. It was a far cry from 2012, when she claimed Olympic gold in not only the 200m, but also the 4x100 and 4x400m relays, guaranteeing her place as one of the most decorated athletes in the sport’s history. On paper, at least, Felix, who finished fifth in the 400m at Shanghai last month, is well ahead of her rivals on Wednesday. The only sprinter to have gone sub-22sec, her season’s

best of 22.44sec is also fastest, followed by Ivorian Murielle Ahoure’s 22.61. The US-educated Ahoure claimed double sprint silver in the Moscow worlds and will likely be Felix’s main contender in the push for the line. In the men’s 100m, veteran kim Collins of the St Kitts and Nevis will be up against a welter of younger competitors, notably rising French star Jimmy Vicaut and Britain’s surprise world indoor 60m champion Richard Kilty. While Kilty has yet to put together a truly convincing 100m performance, Vicaut, Ghana-born Norwegian Jaysuma Saidy Ndure and Trinidad and Tobago’s 2008 Olympic silver medallist Richard Thompson have all clocked 9.95sec this season. A time under 10sec will be the target despite the absence of some of track’s bigger sprint names such as Jamaican pair Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake, and American Justin Gatlin. Elsewhere, the “dream mile”

sees Djibouti’s world indoor 1500m champion Ayanleh Souleiman again to take to one of track and field’s most iconic races. Souleiman was a winner at the Bislett Games last year, and this season was a conqueror of a class field in Eugene in a personal best of 3:47.22 over four laps. American Galen Rupp, training partner of Briton Mo Farah under Alberto Salazar, is in the pack along with the expected host of Ethiopian and Kenyan runners, notably Imane Merga, Yenew Alamirew, Edwin Soi and Thomas Longosiwa. There will be enormous local focus on Norway’s reigning European 1500m champion Henrik Ingebrigtsen, the 23-year-old having made both the Olympic and world championships 1500m finals. A second American and also under Salazar’s tutelage, Matt Centrowitz, a silver and bronze medallist at world championships, is making his Bislett debut and arrives in top form having achieved a personal best this season at 5000m and at the mile in Eugene.

Blatter takes aim at FIFA ‘destroyers’ Agence France-Presse

SAO PAULO - Global football chief Sepp Blatter blasted critics trying to “destroy” FIFA on Monday, suggesting that “racism” was partly behind corruption allegations engulfing Qatar’s winning bid for the 2022 World Cup. In separate comments to Confederation of African Football (CAF) delegates, Blatter said he believed unnamed critics of Qatar 2022 were motivated by “racism and discrimination.” African officials in turn pointed the finger directly at the British media over the Qatar claims, accusing outlets of waging a “hateful, defamatory and de-

Capello and Hazard in World Cup duel Agence France-Presse

RIO DE JANEIRO - The wily Fabio Capello must outfox the explosive talent of Eden Hazard if Russia are to beat Belgium to top spot in World Cup Group H. Capello, the highest paid coach at the World Cup, will have earned every cent of his reported $6.5 million a year salary if Russia get first place and an easier ride in the second round. Algeria and South Korea can only hope for a shock win over either of the favourites to open up Group H. Pressure is on Russia, hosts of the 2018 World Cup, to shine at this tournament. Their best World Cup result so far was when the old Soviet Union came fourth at the 1966 tournament. They have not played in the finals since 2002. But Capello guided them to top place in their European qualifying group ahead of Portugal. They conceded only five goals and Capello has built a team with cautious tactics that stubbornly holds out against opponents and relies on Zenit St Petersburg striker Aleksander Kerzhakov up front. Group H could be decided when Russia face Belgium in Rio de Janeiro on June 22. If Hazard can prove he is capable of showing his English Premier League brilliance on the international stage then he is just the player to prise open Capello’s ageing defence. The 23-year-old has played a central role in Belgium’s resurgence as a football power to be reckoned with. Coach Marc Wilmots was the last

Belgian to score at the World Cup finals in 2002, which was also the last time the Belgians appeared there. But Wilmot’s guile added to the exciting Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, tough midfielder Alex Witsel and equally physical defender Vincent Kompany took Belgium from 54th to fifth in the FIFA world rankings. They were unbeaten as they topped their qualifying group. The World Cup Group H may look easy for the two favourites, but Wilmots says it is a “trap”. “The group is very hungry, that’s kind of my fear, that they want to go too much and too hard,” he said in a recent newspaper interview. “At this level, they are inexperienced.” South Korea are very experienced at the World Cup, now in their eighth straight finals, and they made the semifinals when they hosted the tournament with Japan in 2002. But this time they only claimed a place on goal difference ahead of Uzbekistan. Coach Choi Kang-Hee resigned after the campaign to be replaced by Hong MyungBo, captain of the 2002 team. The young team counts on 21-yearold striker Son Heung-Min, Bayer Leverkusen’s record 10 million euro ($13.5 million) signing. Kim Young-Gwon, who plays for Guangzhou in China, has also been tipped for international success by his club manager Marcelo Lippi, the former Italian World Cup winning coach. Algeria, coached by Vahid Halihodzic, have also been carried into the World Cup finals by a new youthful generation.

SAO PAULO - Global football chief Sepp Blatter blasted critics trying to “destroy” FIFA on Monday, suggesting that “racism” was partly behind corruption allegations engulfing Qatar’s winning bid for the 2022 World Cup. In separate comments to Confederation of African Football (CAF) delegates, Blatter said he believed unnamed critics of Qatar 2022 were motivated by “racism and discrimination.” African officials in turn pointed the finger directly at the British media over the Qatar claims, accusing outlets of waging a “hateful, defamatory and de-

grading” campaign against “the entire African continent.” The same statement meanwhile praised Blatter, citing his “continuous involvement in the development of football in Africa.” Blatter’s rallying cry comes as FIFA faces mounting pressure over its 2010 decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.

MIAMI - Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was slapped with a $5,000 fine for flopping after he over-exaggerated a foul in game two of the NBA finals, the league announced Monday. Wade drew a foul against San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili with just over four minutes left in the second quarter of Sunday’s contest. Wade was holding the ball near the sideline when Ginobili took a swipe at it, brushing the ball. Wade threw his head back and Ginobili was called for a personal foul by the referee. The Heat won the game 98-96 to level the best-of-seven series at one game each. Game three is Tuesday night at American Airlines arena in Miami.

Deluang Sari, a little delta overgrown by mangrove forests with coastal white sand and calm waves, is situated overlooking the sea recreation center of Benoa Harbor. Since it has an intact ecological system, clean beaches and lush mangrove forests, this place was then developed for breeding sea turtles. At low tide, we can get there on foot in the sidelines of the mangrove trees of Tanjung Benoa, while at high tides we have to cross by boat from Benoa Harbor for about 10 minutes. Aside from seeing turtle breeding, visitors coming here can also see different types of fighting cocks, animals and wild birds as well as a small temple, As a tourist destination, this small island has also been equipped with restaurants, souvenir shops and animal attractions.

Australian GP trophy to be named after Brabham Associated Press

MELBOURNE -? The Australian Grand Prix winner’s trophy will be named in honor of threetime Formula One champion Jack Brabham, who died on May 19 at the age of 88. Brabham is the only Formula One driver to win a world title in a car he designed and built himself â?? the rear-engine Brabham BT19 â?? in 1966. He is already recognized on the trophy which carries a laminated studded timber trim replica of the steering wheel from the race car that he used to win his first world title in 1959. He won the F1 world title again in 1960. Australian Grand Prix officials made the announcement Tuesday. Brabham will be given a state funeral on Wednesday on the Gold Coast in Queensland state, where he lived.

OSLO - Allyson Felix will seek out a further step back towards recovery after an injury-plagued 2013 when she races her preferred 200m at Wednesday’s Diamond League in Oslo. A four-time Olympic gold winner, Felix has been one of the dominant figures over the distance, winning three consecutive world titles, the first coming in Helsinki in 2005. Last season, however, was one to forget, the American winning only two Diamond races before crashing out of the Moscow world championships 200m with a hamstring injury. It was a far cry from 2012, when she claimed Olympic gold in not only the 200m, but also the 4x100 and 4x400m relays, guaranteeing her place as one of the most decorated athletes in the sport’s history. On paper, at least, Felix, who finished fifth in the 400m at Shanghai last month, is well ahead of her rivals on Wednesday. The only sprinter to have gone sub-22sec, her season’s

best of 22.44sec is also fastest, followed by Ivorian Murielle Ahoure’s 22.61. The US-educated Ahoure claimed double sprint silver in the Moscow worlds and will likely be Felix’s main contender in the push for the line. In the men’s 100m, veteran kim Collins of the St Kitts and Nevis will be up against a welter of younger competitors, notably rising French star Jimmy Vicaut and Britain’s surprise world indoor 60m champion Richard Kilty. While Kilty has yet to put together a truly convincing 100m performance, Vicaut, Ghana-born Norwegian Jaysuma Saidy Ndure and Trinidad and Tobago’s 2008 Olympic silver medallist Richard Thompson have all clocked 9.95sec this season. A time under 10sec will be the target despite the absence of some of track’s bigger sprint names such as Jamaican pair Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake, and American Justin Gatlin. Elsewhere, the “dream mile”

sees Djibouti’s world indoor 1500m champion Ayanleh Souleiman again to take to one of track and field’s most iconic races. Souleiman was a winner at the Bislett Games last year, and this season was a conqueror of a class field in Eugene in a personal best of 3:47.22 over four laps. American Galen Rupp, training partner of Briton Mo Farah under Alberto Salazar, is in the pack along with the expected host of Ethiopian and Kenyan runners, notably Imane Merga, Yenew Alamirew, Edwin Soi and Thomas Longosiwa. There will be enormous local focus on Norway’s reigning European 1500m champion Henrik Ingebrigtsen, the 23-year-old having made both the Olympic and world championships 1500m finals. A second American and also under Salazar’s tutelage, Matt Centrowitz, a silver and bronze medallist at world championships, is making his Bislett debut and arrives in top form having achieved a personal best this season at 5000m and at the mile in Eugene.

Australia, Malaysia still to decide MH370 search costs Agence France-Presse

SYDNEY - Australia and Malaysia were Tuesday set to discuss the next phase of the search for missing Flight MH370, with the cost of the unprecedented mission on the agenda, officials said. Malaysia’s costs have so far been about onetenth of the US$84 million Australia expects to spend on the search for the plane which disappeared while travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing three months ago. “The government has allocated Aus$89.9 million (US$84 million). I think about Aus$25 million of that is to go the defence force for the visual search they conducted,” said Angus Houston, head of the search’s Joint Agency Coordination Centre. An additional Aus$60 million has been allocated to the underwater operation in the southern Indian Ocean where the plane is believed to have crashed in Australia’s search and rescue zone. Malaysia’s Deputy Defence Minister Abdul Rahim Bakri is expected in Canberra later Tuesday for talks with Australian officials. He told journalists on Monday that the “costs will be shared 50-50 between Malaysia and Australia”. Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein

had earlier told parliament that Malaysia had spent 27.6 million ringgit (US$8.6 million) on fuel and food for equipment and personnel in the search. “The cost that we had to bear is relatively small compared to the other assets given by other countries used in the search,” he said. “I am proud that many of our friends have come forward to help in the search, and they bear their own expenses and have not made any claims from us.” Australia has said it would welcome other nations contributing to the cost of the next phase, an underwater probe of the sea bed over 60,000 square kilometres (24,000 square miles) where the plane is thought to have crashed. But Australia’s Treasurer Joe Hockey said Canberra would not shirk its responsibility to help find answers to what caused the plane to disappear. No debris from the Boeing 777 has been found despite a massive air and sea surface search.

Air strikes on ‘terrorist hideouts’ kill 15 Agence France-Presse

PESHAWAR - At least 15 people were killed as Pakistan carried out early morning air strikes Tuesday on a militant-infested tribal district, the military said, a day after a brazen Taliban assault on Karachi airport. A military statement said “nine terrorist hideouts were destroyed” in the raids, which came after the Taliban stormed Pakistan’s biggest airport killing at least 30 people in an all-night battle on Monday. The death toll from Tuesday’s strikes, in the restive Tirah Valley area of Khyber tribal district, could not be independently verified. Pressure has built on the military to act after the attack by at least 10 militants in Karachi, which left a nascent peace process in tatters and raised questions about how they were able to penetrate the airport in Pakistan’s economic hub. The air strikes are the latest in a succession of such attacks carried out by the Pakistani military in the tribal belt this year after talks with the Tehreeke-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) broke down. The last strikes were carried out in North Waziristan in late May, killing at least 75 people and stoking the migration of some 58,000 people away from the district in fear of a fuller ground-offensive that has been anticipated for years.

Murder trial opens for Sewol ferry captain and crew Agence France-Presse

Lee Joon-seok, the captain of the sunken South Korean ferry Sewol, arrives at Gwangju District Court in Gwangju, South Korea, Tuesday, June 10, 2014. Fifteen crew members from the sunken South Korean ferry were in court to enter pleas on charges that they were negligent and failed to save passengers in the disaster, which left more than 300 people dead or missing.

GWANGJU - With South Korean divers still searching for victims of April’s ferry disaster, the murder trial of 15 crew members opened Tuesday in a highly-charged atmosphere that raised concerns about a fair hearing. The trial began in the southern city of Gwangju in a packed courtroom which included grieving relatives of some of the 292 confirmed victims of the April 16 tragedy. Captain Lee Joon-Seok and three senior crew members are accused of “homicide through wilful negligence” -- a charge that falls between first-degree murder and manslaughter, but still carries the death penalty. Eleven other members of the crew are being tried on lesser charges of criminal negligence. The bulk of the charges arise from the fact that Lee and the others chose to abandon the 6,825-tonne Sewol ferry while hundreds of people were still trapped inside the heavily-listing vessel before it capsized. A handful of crew members who stayed and tried to guide passengers to safety were among those who died. The Sewol was carrying 476 passengers, including 325 students on a school trip, when it sank off the southwest coast. So far 292 have been confirmed dead, with 12 still unaccounted for as divers continue to search the submerged vessel for remaining bodies. The tragedy stunned South Korea, knocking the entire country off its stride and unleashing a wave of public anger, as it emerged that incompetence, corruption and greed had all contributed to the scale of the disaster. Much of that rage focused on Lee and his crew, especially after the coastguard released a video showing the captain, dressed in a sweater and underwear, scrambling to safety from the sinking ferry.

INDONESIA Prabowo defends rights record Agence France-Presse

JAKARTA - A presidential candidate who served as a general during Indonesia’s threedecade Suharto dictatorship has emotionally defended himself against alleged human rights abuses committed during his service in a televised election debate. Prabowo Subianto, who faces favourite Joko Widodo at the July 9 election, was a top military figure in the chaotic months before dictator Suharto was toppled by student protests in 1998. Following the strongman’s downfall, he admitted ordering the abduction of democracy activists and was discharged from the military for exceeding orders, but has never faced a civilian court. The ex-general is seen as a serious contender against Widodo, who is known by his nickname of Jokowi and won legions of fans during his time as Jakarta governor. However Prabowo’s past came back to haunt him late Monday during the first televised debate ahead of the election, when Widodo’s running mate, former vice president Jusuf Kalla, confronted him about the abuse allegations. “I know what you are implying, that I cannot protect human rights and that I am a human rights violator,” Prabowo said, his voice becoming emotional. “We (soldiers) in remote areas

tough questions about Prabowo’s past, and said he had been left floundering. The Jakarta Globe newspaper declared it a “victory for the people”, saying rights abuses against Prabowo had rarely been discussed openly in the past.

“Prabowo’s response to the question last night was pitiful and sadly unremorseful,” added the Jakarta Post daily. Widodo put in a confident performance in the debate, the first in a series of five ahead of the election, which will give him a boost fol-

lowing criticism of his poor public speaking skills. Observers predict a tight race. A recent poll put Widodo eight percent ahead of Prabowo, a far smaller lead than a few weeks ago, with surveys showing many voters still undecided.

State income and spending fall Australian man dies climbing Rinjani short of target in 2013 Antara

JAKARTA - The Supreme Audit Board (BPK) said the government reported state income including grants reached Rp1,438.89 trillion for 2013. The income rose 7.53 percent year-on-year but only 95.8 percent of the target set for 2013, BPK chairman Rizal Ramli told the legislator in a plenary session on Tuesday. Meanwhile state spending reached Rp1,650.56 trillion , or 10.67 percent higher than in 2012

but only 95.62 percent of the budget target set for 2013, Rizal said quoting the government’s report about state budget realization of 2013. He said budget deficit was Rp211.67 trillion or 38.08 percent larger than deficit in 2012. “In the 31 December 2013 balance sheet, the government recorded Rp66.59 trillion in unspent budget,” he said. He said assets were valued at Rp3,567.59 trillion, with liabilities at Rp2,652.10 trillion including

Rp1.890,75 trillion in long term domestic and foreign debts. He said BPK has submitted the auditing results of Central Government Financial Report to the House of Representatives, the Regional Representative Council and the president. The audit result was handed over to the House of Representatives to make it easier for the legislative body to take a decision on the draft law on accountability report of the state budget by the president, he said

MATARAM - An Australian man has died from a suspected asthma attack after setting out to trek up Indonesia’s second-highest volcano, police said Tuesday. John-Paul Lipscombe, 53, was a short way into the hike up Mount Rinjani, on Lombok island in the centre of the archipelago, when he collapsed, said local police chief I Wayan Wartia said. “He had walked two kilometres (just over a mile) when he suddenly collapsed and died,” he said. Lipscombe was one of 10 hikers on the trek. Mount Rinjani, which is 3,726 metres (12,224 feet) tall, is a popular trekking spot with tourists. An Italian tourist was killed when she fell into a ravine while climbing the volcano in 2010.

BUSINESS Rolls-Royce to sell luxury automobiles in Cambodia Associated Press

PHNOM PENH — Fabled luxury car maker Rolls-Royce will soon be marketing its goods in one of the world’s poorest countries: Cambodia. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced Monday that it has joined with a Cambodian business partner to open a showroom in the Cambodian capital next month. Rolls-Royce Asia-Pacific regional manager Paul Harris said his company signed a deal with HGB Group Co., Ltd. because it believed demand would grow along with Cambodia’s economy. Cambodia’s average per capita annual income, according to the World Bank, is just over $1,000, a bit less than one-half of 1 percent of the cost of the cheapest Rolls-Royce. However, a small but wealthy elite lives in the capital of the mostly rural nation, and it is not unusual to see various models of high-end Lexus automobiles passing by pedicabs in the city’s dusty streets. Harris said five Rolls-Royces have been sold in Cambodia since 2005. “Nobody would believe that such a luxury car would come to Cambodia,” said Minister for Industry and Handcrafts Cham Prasidh, who was present for the announcement. Cheaper Japanese models still dominate the market, but the upgrading of roads — which had suffered from war and neglect — and the rise in people’s living standards mean other car manufacturers from various countries are now entering the Cambodian market, he said.

German firm to set up in joint Korean Kaesong complex

Agence France-Presse

SEOUL - South Korea on Tuesday said it had green-lighted a German firm supplying industrial needles to set up as the first foreign company in the Kaesong joint industrial zone run with North Korea. Groz-Beckert will provide its needles to South Korean firms operating in the Kaesong complex, which opened in 2004 as a rare symbol of cross-border cooperation, the South’s unification ministry said. “It will be the first foreign company to do business there, although its office is not a manufacturing facility,” a ministry official told AFP. The office will be manned by

two North Korean workers and several staff from Groz-Beckert’s branch in South Korea. Kaesong, which lies 10 kilometres (six miles) on the North Korean side of the border, employs more than 50,000 North Koreans in around 120 South Korean light industrial firms. Pyongyang shut down the complex in April last year by withdrawing its workforce as military ten-

sions surged in the wake of North Korea’s third nuclear test. It re-opened five months later but talks on reforming the way Kaesong is managed have shown little progress. South Korea has been pushing hard for overseas involvement in the zone, believing the presence of foreign firms would make it harder for Pyongyang to shut down the complex in the future.

Bali rabies-free program attempted all this time seems to still leave a number of concerns. It happens because the number of bite cases by rabies-carrier animals remains very high.

TABANAN - Bali rabies-free program attempted all this time seems to still leave a number of concerns. It happens because the number of bite cases by rabies-carrier animals remains very high. In Tabanan, until April 2014, the total bite case reached 2,046 incidents. Of this amount, 582 victims were recorded not to get anti-rabies vaccine (VAR). “Not all cases of dog bites should be given anti-rabies vaccine, but depends on the condition of the dog,” explained the Head of Tabanan Health Agency, Nyoman Suratmika. He described that most bite cases were caused by stray dogs. On that account, they were quite risky to trigger rabies. Even, the average number of bite case could reach 15 to 20 cases per day. According to him, if there were dog bite victims, at least they needed three shots of anti-rabies vaccine. Firstly, they were given two shots, another shot on the seventh day and the last shot on the 21st day. For these actions, it was required four ampoules of anti-rabies vaccine. Further, he said the bite cases by the rabies-carrier animal were found in some rabies treatment centers, such as at rabies center of Tabanan Hospital and six Community Health Centers that provided inpatient anti-

rabies vaccine. Two of them were in Penebel and Baturiti. The dog bite cases recorded were only those reported by victims. Predictably, there were many similar cases that were not reported. Based on the data released by the Tabanan Health Agency, the dog bite cases continued to rise every month since the outbreak in 2008. A total of 7,102 incidents occurred in 2011, rose to 7,374 incidents (2012) and declined to only 6,042 incidents (2013), and until April 2014 it was recorded to reach 2,046 incidents. “In terms of the detailed data, through the years the amount always lies in the range of 500-600 cases every month,” he said. The cases of positive rabies dog bite on human in Tabanan last appeared when Balinese Hindus celebrated Ngembak Geni (the day after Nyepi) experienced by resident at Sekartaji hamlet, Sesandan village early April. The Livestock Agency team eventually moved quickly by performing mass vaccination as well as the elimination of stray dogs, especially those having a history of contact with dogs declared positive to rabies in accordance with the SOPs. Pursuant to the rules, the rabies handling should be expedited because it had something to do with the use of anti-rabies serum or antirabies vaccine. (kmb28)

Waste of swimming pool alleged to have polluted Lake Batur Bali Post

BANGLI - The Bangli Environment Agency (BLH) continued to test the water quality of Lake Batur in Kintamani. Based on the results of research made not long ago, it was revealed if the water of Lake Batur contained nitrite residue due to the use of fertilizer by farmers and chlorine exceeding the quality standard. Allegedly, such conditions were the result of pool sewage pollution of tourism service providers located around the lake.

Ex-personal secretary of former regent of Jembrana probed

It was announced by the Head of Bangli Environment Agency, Wayan Sukartana, accompanied by the Division Head of Environmental Impact Management Gusti Laksana, Monday (Jun 9). Sukartana described that based on the results of research conducted at four different locations, namely Trunyan, Songan, Kedisan Pier, and Kedisan cage, it was found the water condition of Lake Batur currently contained chlorine exceeding the quality standard of 2.1 ml/g. The amount was higher than the standard rate of 0.03 ml/g. His party estimated the increase in the chlorine content was caused by the amount of waste discharged directly into the lake such as by toilet sewage and swimming pool waste from the operation of tourism activities such as hotels and inns in the vicinity. According to Sukartana, most of the waste generated all this time had not passed through a proper processing so that it

NEGARA - Having probed the former regent of Jembrana, Gede Winasa, in the Negara Prison, Thursday (Jun 5), the Negara Prosecutor’s Office summoned the former personal secretaries of Winasa, Monday (Jun 6). The examination was conducted to explore more information from Winasa who was previously examined for seven hours for the allegation of corruption case related to his official trip (SPPD). The Special Crime Section Head of Negara Prosecutor’s Office, Putu Sauca Arimbawa Tusan, with permission from the Head of Negara Prosecutor’s Office said that in the invitation last Monday should be examined two former personal secretaries of Winasa, namely Putu Ariani and Komang Sri. However, Putu Ariani was unable to attend it because there were activities outside the town. The team would examine Putu Ariani on Friday. For this case, his party focused on the examination of both personal secretaries and three aides. Previously, both personal secretaries and the aides had been examined, but after getting information from Winasa, the prosecutor’s office

gave rise to such conditions. He added the presence of water hyacinth whose population was increasingly widespread in Lake Batur could be very useful to purify water quality of the lake. It included returning the water to normal condition. The water hyacinth would be considered a problem if it filled the lake. “Aside from harming, the water hyacinth is also good enough to control the condition of water pollution,” he said. He hoped the problems in Lake Batur could be addressed together, not only by government but also by society. The communities, especially those living around the lake, were expected not to dispose their waste directly into the lake. Rather, it should be processed first in order to maintain the water quality of the lake from pollution hazards. “We expect people to be aware, no longer dispose their waste directly into the lake because it can contaminate the water quality,” he added.

needed to cross check with the concerned. When examined, Winasa said if the official trip was entrusted to his personal secretary and aides. According to Sauca, having probed all the related parties, his party would immediately expose and determine the suspect. From the examination so far, the suspect would be possibly more than one person. Previously, for few times the Negara Prosecutor’s Office failed to probe the former regent of Jembrana, I Gede Winasa. Ultimately, the examination could be conducted on Thursday (Jun 5) in the Negara Prison because he was serving a sentence for graft in the composting plant. The examination was still limited to ask for information to Winasa about his official trips becoming the finding of the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) in 2010 and it harmed the state at IDR 600 million. Sauca mentioned that based on the results of examination conducted there were some official trips made by the former Regent Winasa in a few years. In the budget, it was mentioned to use Garuda Indonesia, but the realization he flew with Lion Air. (kmb26)

The campaign, labelled “Embracing APEC Wonderful Pekingese-Citizen Civilized Behavior Promotion,” also promises to crack down on jaywalking, drink driving and drivers refusing to stop at zebra crossings. The Beijing municipal government said in a press release that it aims to encourage “civilised orderly and courteous transport, to improve people’s overall quality to display (their) wonderfulness.” It follows a similar campaign ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which saw authorities target spitting, littering and disorderly lines for public transport. Beijing government Civilisation Office spokesman Han Longbin told reporters that the Olympic campaign had achieved results, but “people are still running red lights”. “We still need to promote better queueing, and we will depend on promoting civilisation and also legal measures,” he added, without giving details. Residents will be encouraged to tackle Beijing’s chronic smog by taking part in a “clean atmosphere blue day action,” which involves taking public transport and buying “green” products. Other behaviours due for censure include “making a racket”, smoking in public places and eating while on public transport. The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, which includes China and the United States, will see leaders from more than 20 countries and economies descend on Beijing in November.

Freak storms in Germany kill at least six

Agence France-Presse

BERLIN - Violent storms killed at least six people in western Germany overnight, felling trees and snarling road and rail traffic, authorities said Tuesday. Three people died in Duesseldorf when a towering poplar tree whipped by wind, hail and rain fell on a garden shed where they had sought shelter late Monday, the fire brigade reported. Another three people were killed in the same accident, two of them seriously. Falling trees also killed cyclists in Cologne and Krefeld, while a 49-yearold man in Essen collapsed during clean-up efforts and later died.

Rail company Deutsche Bahn reported “serious disturbances” to its train schedule as routes were obstructed by storm debris. Meanwhile several flights were hit by delays or cancelled at Duesseldorf airport. The storms came on the heels of record heat over the long Pentecost weekend and were sweeping toward the northeast of the country on Tuesday.

Surfer survives shark attack in Japan

Agence France-Presse

TOKYO - A 43-year-old man has been seriously injured after being attacked by a shark while surfing off central Japan, officials said Tuesday, warning local beachgoers to be alert. Tsuyoshi Takahashi, an offduty life guard, was rushed to hospital on Sunday afternoon after the shark sank its teeth into his left arm some 30 metres (100

feet) offshore, a fire department official said. The accident occurred while Takahashi was surfing with his colleagues in the Pacific off the Atsumi peninsula in Aichi, some 250 kilometre (155 miles) west of Tokyo, a spot well-known for its big waves. “He was seriously injured and got 30 stitches to the wound, but there is no threat to his life,” said the official, adding: “We are call-

ing on other surfers to be on the alert against sharks.” Japan’s long coastline is home to a variety of sharks, but attacks on people are relatively rare. The species of shark involved on Sunday was not known. According to the local government, the weekend incident was the first shark attack in the prefecture since 1995 when a fisherman was killed by a great white.

Tech giants scramble for Levy rate increases 900 percent lead on ‘Internet of Things’ Marine conservation area of Nusa Penida inaugurated

Bali Post

DENPASAR - The Marine Conservation Area (KKP) in Nusa Penida was finally inaugurated by Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Sharif C Sutardjo, Monday (Jun 9). After the ceremony, the KKP Nusa Penida was planned to be managed by a regional enterprise (BUMD) under the Klungkung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs (PPK). With the inauguration, the levy rate of entering the KKP was planned to rise 900 percent from IDR 7,000 to IDR 70,000 per person.

Agence France-Presse

WASHINGTON - It’s not just smartphones and tablets anymore. The world’s tech giants are now battling over a wider array of connected devices, from refrigerators to cars to wristwatches. Announcements in recent days from Apple and Samsung made clear they are staking their claim to the “Internet of Things” following Google’s announcement earlier this year that it was creating a new Android platform for wearable electronics. “The Internet of Things is the next big platform,” said Roger Kay, an analyst with Endpoint Technologies Associates. “These are potentially billions of devices. That’s a big market, so every consortium is lining up for that.” A study released by research firm IDC said the market for the Internet of Things (IoT) will grow from $1.9 trillion in 2013 to $7.1 trillion in 2020 as businesses and consumers adopt smart technology for homes, cars and a variety of accessories. Apple unveiled Monday its new mobile operating system iOS 8 along with HealthKit software to manage personal healthcare and HomeKit for home appliances, while encouraging developers to create services for the iOS operating system used in iPhones and iPads. Apple opens up

“Apple iOS 8 has the beginnings of a full-fledged platform supporting

IoT, you can see it with their health and fitness hooks and their ability to entertain more third party devices,” said Compass Intelligence chief mobile analyst Gerry Purdy. But Apple is following its own path, aiming for tighter control and with less interoperability by limiting connections with non-Apple devices. “It may be that Apple will just colonize a few areas and do it well,” said Kay. Samsung, meanwhile, is jumping into the fray with Tizen, an opensource operating system that could take on iOS and Android for connected devices. Frank Gillett at Forrester Research said Samsung -- by far the most successful maker of Android phones and tablets -- wants to distance itself from Google in the next phase of technology. “I think Samsung is in a challenging and difficult place,” Gillett told AFP. Gillett said that with Tizen, Samsung is aiming for “a multi-part software and services strategy to build sticky relationships with customers to keep them buying hardware.” The Internet of Things will likely be big enough for several platforms and

PlayStation TV to soon hit US-Europe Agence France-Presse

LOS ANGELES - Sony Computer Entertainment on Monday said a PlayStation TV home entertainment system will debut in North America and Europe by the end of this year. The small, stand-alone PS TV box will be priced at $99 here and 99 euros in Europe. A bundle containing a wireless video game style controller, a memory card, and a “LEGO: The Movie” video game from Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment will sell for $140. PS TV is designed as a platform for games, films, television shows. music, and even orignal programming streamed from the Internet or PlayStation consoles. The first PS TV original series, titled “Power” and based on a graphic novel of the same name, is in production and

casting is underway, writer Brian Michael Bendis said at a Sony press briefing on the eve of the Tuesday opening of the E3 video game show here. The story revolves around two homicide detectives who specialize in investigating suspicious deaths of people with super powers. “If a super hero falls dead from the sky or a notorious super villain is found dead in a gutter, that is their case,” Bendis said. “It is also about what a world with super heroes might really look like; how it would affect our culture.” PS TV will synch with a Sony online store for digital content, provided they are members of the PlayStation Network. The system has proven popular since it was released in Japan and other parts of Asian in November as PlayStation Vita TV, according to Sony.

there “is a whole other layer of complexity” to the market for the Internet of Things. For now, some analysts see Google as best positioned to benefit from the new phase of the Internet.

Bob O’Donnell at TECHnalysis Research said the Apple strategy “is creating a great reason to stick with Apple devices across all their main categories,” but added that “most Apple users don’t have all Apple devices.”

Facebook names ‘mobile messaging’ chief Agence France-Presse

SAN FRANCISCO - Facebook announced Monday it hired the top executive of eBay’s PayPal division to lead the social network’s efforts to boost its mobile messaging. David Marcus, who has been president of PayPal, was named to the new post as Facebook appeared set to focus increasingly on messaging. The California giant said separately it “accidentally” released a version of a new app called “Slingshot,” about which reports have been circulating for several weeks. Although Facebook did not specify the nature of the app, reports have said it would allow for sharing of photos and videos and compete with some startups offering similar services.

“Earlier today, we accidentally released a version of Slingshot, a new app we’re working on,” Facebook said in an email to AFP. “With Slingshot, you’ll be able to share everyday moments with lots of people at once. It’ll be ready soon, and we’re excited for you to try it out.” The appointment of Marcus also comes with Facebook preparing to absorb the popular messaging service WhatsApp, in a deal worth a whopping $19 billion that was the biggest acquisition ever for Facebook. Facebook’s strategy appears centered around breaking up its service into separate applications that can create their own customer base. The company earlier this year split off its Facebook Messenger service as a standalone app.

It was announced by the Regent of Klungkung, Nyoman Suwirta, after accompanying the Minister Sharif C. Sutardjo at Batununggul village, Nusa Penida. Having been inaugurated, the regional enterprise managing the KKP would be immediately formed. In addition, the amount of levy would also be discussed further with relevant parties because the increase in levy should be protected by new regional bylaw. The Head of Klungkung Tourism and Culture Agency, Wayan Sujana, said on Monday that his party planned to raise the levy based on advice of various tourism practitioners and environmentalists. When compared to the other regions, the levy worth IDR 7,000 per person was considered low. “The rate at IDR 70,000, according to survey by a number of associations in the field of tourism, is considered very decent for the KKP tourism potential,” he said. Since it was launch as the Marine Conservation Area in 2008, the Culture and Tourism Agency charged the levy in accordance with Regional

Bylaw No.2 regarding the Tourist Attraction and Recreation. Thus, to determine the amount of new levy was required a new legal instrument in the form of regional bylaw by the Klungkung County, which would be coordinated with the Klungkung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. Later on, the regional enterprise would be under the agency and independent. “When it has been under the agency, it will be definitely well organized in accordance with the rules,” he said. Meanwhile, the Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Sharif C. Sutardjo, said the inauguration of the Marine Conservation Area was expected to be an example to preserve the marine ecosystem in Bali. So, with the protection, the coral reef would live naturally and fish life would increase that could provide the benefits for the survival of society. With this designation, the Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida would be officially and totally in operation, including the application of zoning rules, the long-term management plan, code of conduct for marine tours

IBP/Bagiarta

The Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida with the area of 20,057 hectares covering coastal and marine ecosystems was quite complete such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass. and entrance fees into the Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida for travelers. “The government is targeting to protect coastal and marine area of 20 million hectares in Indonesia through the establishment of the Marine Conservation Area in 2020,” he explained. Sharif asserted that his ministry had made an E-KKP3K method to assess the effectiveness of the Marine Conservation Area management in Indonesia. So, it would not only

target the acreage, but also the level of management effectiveness in the field. The Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida with the area of 20,057 hectares covering coastal and marine ecosystems was quite complete such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass. Based on a survey conducted by the Coral Triangle Center (CTC) in the waters of Nusa Penida, there were about 296 species of coral and 576 species of fish. The area of coral reefs in the waters of Nusa

Penida amounted to 1,419 hectares, 230 hectares of mangroves (13 species) and 108 hectares of seagrass (8 types). In the waters of Nusa Penida, there were also large marine fauna or marine mega-fauna such as manta ray, whale, dolphin, turtle and shark. Even, the water of Nusa Penida was the home to rare and unique sunfish with a large enough size of about 2-3 meters. Typically, the fish icon of Marine Conservation Area of Nusa Penida came to surface in July-September. (kmb31)

Benoa Bay designed to be conservation area Bali Post

MANGUPURA - The Regional Bylaw Draft on Detailed Spatial Plan (RDTR) and Zoning Regulations in Badung County is currently under discussion. In the regional bylaw draft on Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation for South Kuta subdistrict, the Benoa Bay area is designed to be included in the conservation subzone for coastal territory and small islands. If the Regional Bylaw Draft on Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation can be established, the reclamation of Benoa Bay will not be allowed. Special Committee of the Detailed Spatial Plan also hoped the amendment to Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita would no longer tamper the area of Benoa Bay. “In terms of regulation, both Regional Spatial Plan and Detailed Spatial Plan (RDTR) at issue, Badung wants to secure the Benoa Bay,” said

Chairman of the Detailed Spatial Plan Special Committee of Badung, I Wayan Suyasa. He explained the points arranged in the regional bylaw draft included the Regional Bylaw on Regional Spatial Plan of Badung having been referred to the rules of central government including the Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita. On that account, if later on Benoa Bay had been designated as a conservation area in the Detailed Spatial Plan and Zoning Regulation, then in terms of rules, the reclamation in the local area would be prohibited. “As a rule, the conservation area is not allowed to be reclaimed. So, we expect the amendment to the Presidential Regulation on Sarbagita will not touch the Benoa Bay, because it can have an impact on the rules in the region,” he said. In the draft discussed by the Special Committee of the Detailed Spatial

Plan in the Badung House, the area of Benoa Bay was included in the sub-zone of Coastal Conservation and Small Islands. Distribution of subzone conservation and small islands included the conservation block of Pudut Island at Tanjung Benoa village, conservation block of mangrove forest protection of the Ngurah Rai Grand Forest Park (Tahura) at Jimbaran village, Benoa village and Tanjung Benoa village, coral reef protection block, protection block of catch fishermen, seaweed farming protection block and buffer ecosystem block of Benoa Bay waters. Based on the regional bylaw draft, the conservation sub-zone in accordance with the utilization was divided into three core zone designations, namely the core zone, limited utilization zone and other zone. Area determination of these zones would be further defined by central government

through the Ministry of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs. At the core zone designation, the activities allowed would include the absolute habitat protection and fish populations, marine life migration flow, protection of unique and vulnerable coastal ecosystems to change and protection of traditional cultural sites. Designation of limited utilization zone included the protection of habitat and fish population, marine tourism and recreation as well as religious ritual. Meanwhile, the designation of other zones posed the zone outside the core zone and the zone of limited utilization because the function and condition was defined as a particular zone, a zone of rehabilitation. Meanwhile, the Head of the Badung Livestock, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, said the water conservation area in Badung would be made

again a ground check to the area blocks that should be preserved or conserved. Benoa Bay, he said, was one of the areas getting particular concern. His party would discuss specifically about the coordinates or boundaries of Waters Conservation Area (KKP) of Benoa Bay by involving various elements of the community, NGOs and practitioners. “To what extent, their coordinates will be determined. We do hope that all can be patient because Benoa Bay is very strategic,” he said. Further, he explained that on Monday (Jun 9) was scheduled a declaration of Waters Conservation Area for the counties/municipality in Bali. In the activity under coordination of the Directorate General of Regional Development, Ministry of Home Affairs, each county/municipality in Bali would deliver their own draft. (kmb25)

Smuggling of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison

Police secure 18.5 kg of marijuana

NEGARA - Although having been arrested by officials, the poultry smuggling from Java to Bali via Gilimanuk remains to happen. Until Monday morning (Jun 9), the officers at Gilimanuk could foil the smuggling of hundreds of poultry at checkpoint II. The perpetrator attempted to deceive the officials by passing through checkpoint early in the morning at 2:45 a.m. An L 300 pickup truck with freight covered in tarpaulin entered the vehicle document checkpoint. The officers suspected the goods loaded after smelling duck odor. By police, the driver Adi Subroto from Banyuwangi was asked to open the tarpaulin. Police suspicion was then proved, where hundreds of poultry consisting of duck, Muscovy duck and chickens were confined in a fruit box. In addition, the officers also found fresh duck meat ready for sale. From the information given by the driver, the poultry belonged to Ari Susanti, 35, from Purwodadi hamlet, Kradjan village, Gambiran Banyuwangi. Having been secured, it was then further checked and the pickup truck carried 26 Muscovy ducks, 270 ducks, 6 chickens and 30 kg of duck meat. Similarly, the owner did not have any document related to the poultry consignment to Bali. From the recognition, it was known if the hundreds of poultry would be delivered to Denpasar. Such an action was committed every two weeks and it was the first time to be caught by the officers. Furthermore, hundreds of the poultry along with the vehicle was handed over to the Agricultural Quarantine Office at Gilimanuk for further processing. Chief of Jembrana Police, Harry Hariyadi, accompanied by Jembrana Police Criminal Investigation Unit Satrio Wibowo when asked for his confirmation justified the arrest. According to him, the legal process was conducted at Gilimanuk Marine Police, while the evidence was commended at Gilimanuk Quarantine Office. The perpetrator was charged under Article 6 of Law No.16/1992 on Animal and Plant Quarantine. (kmb26)

MANGUPURA - Hard work of Badung Police Drugs Unit performing the development against the smuggling of 3 kg of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison (Class A Denpasar), Saturday (Jun 7) should be appreciated. Police officers coming to the boarding house of Besit on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung, Kerta Sari hamlet, Panjer, South Denpasar, found marijuana weighing 15.3 kg, wrapped in 16 packs. Thus, there are now totally 18.3 kg of dried marijuana secured in the Badung Police. Chief of Badung Police Drugs Unit, Bambang Gede Artha, said on Monday (Jun 9) that after arresting Juwarso, 26, and Ahmad Imron Rosidi, 34, smuggling marijuana into Kerobokan Prison, the Badung Police officers immediately developed the case. Moreover, it had been proved by the mobile phone belonging to the man from Jember, East Java, containing the message ‘the marijuana weighs 3 kg, right? “From the SMS of Juwarso, he can no longer dodge,” he said. In addition, police doing the search to the pants’ pocket of Juwarso found a key of boarding room. From the discovery of the key, police then made a development to the boarding house on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung, Kerta Sari hamlet, Panjer, South Denpasar. “Once secured in Kerobokan Prison, the officers took the perpetrators directly to the boarding room, which according to Juwarso, it was the boarding room

of Besit,” he explained. Further, he said that in the boarding house on Jalan Tukad Ciliwung Juwarso took 3 packs of dried marijuana, prior to smuggling it into the Kerobokan Prison. “Juwarso admitted to take the marijuana at the boarding room of Besit around 12:00 a.m. to be smuggled into Kerobokan Prison,” he said. Unexpectedly, the officers searching the boarding room found 16 packs placed in a neat row under the sink. Having been checked, the packs covered in tapes contained dried marijuana, weighing totally 15.3 kg. “The 16 packs of marijuana were found under the sink, around 10:00 p.m.,” he explained. When interrogated, said Bambang, Juwarso admitted not to know where the dried marijuana came from. He just implemented the order of Besit to take three packs and they were then sent to Kerobokan

Prison. “The result of interim interrogation told if Juwarso first saw marijuana in the boarding house of Besit,” he explained. When asked where the remaining marijuana packs were taken by the perpetrator, Bambang did not want to answer. He reasoned if the Badung Police Drug Unit officers were still investigating the case. In addition, he said if Ahmad Imron Rosidi was not involved in this case. “Imron was just delivering, we’re now hunting Besit,” he said. Previously, it was reported if the smuggling of 3 kg of marijuana committed by Juwarso, 26, and Ahmad Imron Rosidi, 34, was still under investigation of the Badung Police Drugs Unit. Up to these days, it was not known if the smuggling of marijuana into Kerobokan Prison was deliberately committed by Juwarso based on the order of Besit. Meanwhile, Besit had escaped out of Bali.

LOS ANGELES — A judge has approved a settlement between Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend over child support payments for their 6-year-old daughter. The agreement approved by Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon on May 30 calls for Berry to pay ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry $16,000 a month or nearly $200,000 a year to support their daughter. The Oscar-winning actress will also pay for their daughter’s tuition, but the former couple will split health care expenses. The order also calls for Berry to pay her ex-boyfriend a retroactive payment of $115,000 and $300,000 to his attorneys to cover the costs of their custody dispute. Berry and Aubry, a model, were involved in a custody dispute in 2012, and a judge blocked her from moving their daughter to France. Gordon’s order only affects child support payments. Berry has an 8-month-old son with her husband, Olivier Martinez.

FIFA opens its 64th Congress under the cloud of a corruption scandal surrounding the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, which has drawn rebukes from some of the world football body’s biggest sponsors. Sao Paulo is meanwhile facing headaches of its own after subway workers threatened to resume a damaging strike on Thursday, the day the world’s eyes turn to the Brazilian mega-city for the start of a World Cup whose build-up has been plagued by delays, overspending and protests. The workers voted Monday to suspend their five-day-old strike, which had caused massive traffic jams and cut off subway service to Corinthians Arena, the stadium hosting the opening ceremony and kick-off. Officials are hard-pressed to avoid more problems as a billion people worldwide tune in to the game on TV. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and 12 heads of state and government will be in the stadium, which workers are rushing to finish on time. Work on the 12 host stadiums has been overshadowed by accidents that have killed eight workers, including three at

Corinthians Arena. That together with construction delays, ballooning budgets and the shelving of promised infrastructure projects has fueled anger over the World Cup. Brazil has been hit by a wave of strikes and protests ahead of the tournament and elections in October in which President Dilma Rousseff is seeking a second term. Rising inflation and a sluggish economy have dented Brazilians’ enthusiasm for the World Cup. In a nation with a wide and highly visible gap between rich and poor, critics say the more than $11 billion for the tournament would have been better spent on education, health, housing and transport. Strike ultimatum

Sao Paulo’s subway workers had been facing growing pressure to end the latest strike, which stranded many of the system’s 4.5 million daily riders. A court ruled Sunday that the strike was illegal and slapped their union with a $222,000-a-day fine.

On Monday, police cracked down on picketing workers, detaining 13 of them, and fired tear gas to break up a protest in their support. Authorities also fired 42 employees for “just cause,” accusing them of vandalism, blocking commuters and inciting people to jump turnstiles. Union president Altino Melo dos Prazeres said workers would resume their walkout Thursday if the fired employees were not re-hired. The union is seeking a raise of 12.2 percent, but the government is offering only 8.7 percent. At the same time FIFA will be wrapping up its congress of world football federations, where president Sepp Blatter is expected to announce he will seek a fifth four-year term in the sport’s most powerful job. That however will likely be overshadowed by allegations a former Qatari football boss paid more than $5 million in bribes to win the vote to host the 2022 tournament. The scandal has sparked calls for a re-vote and led five of FIFA’s biggest sponsors -- Hyundai, Coca Cola, Adidas, Sony and Visa -- to demand a full investigation. The Belgian and Nigerian teams are meanwhile due to arrive Tuesday. After that just three of the 32 teams will be missing: South Korea, Ghana and Portugal, all expected Wednesday.
