(Balitrips.net) / 16 Jun 2009
The Chief of the Bali Villa Association (BVA), Ismoyo S.
Soemarlan, is calling on the government to undertake sweeping raids
against illegal commercial villas in Bali and close all illegal villas
Quoted in Denpost, Ismoyo, who is also the owner of the Villa Uma Sapta, said the hoped the government would soon undertake sweeping raids involving members of the BVA.
raids are necessary, according to Ismoyo, in order to move against
villas that avoid taxes and have callously evaded recent efforts to
allow lenient ex post facto commercial registration of their enterprises. Said Ismoyo: "Arrest them! It's clear they are breaking the law."
The Chief of the BVA
told the press that he has accumulated data on illegal villas that
could form the basis of future enforcement actions. Ismoyo said that
tracking down the illegal villas is an easy matter of comparing the
list of licensed establishments against those Bali villas offered for
rent on the Internet.
