In regards to media coverage related with possible changes in the new/revised Criminal Code (KUHP) in Indonesia, Bali Government office has issued a statement containing 3 points to be shared for immediate release; please find hereafter its translation:

1. The recommendation of the full regulations, including what is commonly mentioned as the “Adultery Act” is still a recommendation and has not yet formally issued and cannot be enforced.

2. Based on various feedback, the President of The Republic of Indonesia and the Indonesian Parliament have agreed to indefinitely postpone the passing of the bill with those new regulations.

3. Bali Government office encourages all parties involved in tourism (i.e., persons visiting or planning to visit, as well as industry stakeholders) to stay calm and continue their activities (or planned activities) as usual.
