THE UNCOVERING OF THE BALI BLAST CASE

Drs. Made Mangku Pastika
Inspector General Police, Investigator In Charge in Kuta Bali Bomb Case

On October 12th 2002 a tragic event occurred in Bali. Three separate bombs where detonated causing hundreds of deaths and casualties, and a vast amount of material damage.
This tragedy attracted international attention, because up until this occurrence Bali was known as a safe and secure tourist destination, and most of the victim were foreign tourists.
After the bomb blast the Police started comprehensive investigations and helping organise evacuations of the victims. They got help from local communities, volunteers and other organisations. The Police also formed a team of investigations to uncover the incidents. Several countries supported them.
The crime scene was throughly searched throught by forensic experts from various countries using high technology. Within a short time of evidence being gathered from the crime scene, Police were able to link this evidence to several prime suspects, which resulted in their apprehension.
After interrogating the prime suspects and evaluating the evidence, it led Police to the conclusion that these suspects were just a few of a well-organised terrorist network. Some prime suspects are currently facing the co urt of law, whilst others are still wanted.
Investigations are continued, and strong indications show that the perpetrators of the Bali bomb blast are linked to the international terrorist organisation Jamaah Islamiah and event to Al-Qaeda. Several of the perpetrators are known to be the arganisational structure of Jamaah Islamiah.
The succesfull uncovering of the Bali bomb blast would not have been possible without the high technology tools and experts from friendly countries. This includes identifying bodies of victims that were unrecognisable.
The investigation team still fases difficulties in completing the uncovering of the network behind the Bali bombers, in spite of which their morale is still high in fighting terrorism.
Indonesian Police have collaborated with American, Australian, and Japanese Police to set international security standarts to prevent and defect any further terrorist attacks in Bali.
