Agustina explained that this operation was conducted following the latest Home Affairs Minister’s and Bali Governor’s instruction to ban New Year’s Eve events in Bali during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The people were already warned that they were not allowed to host parties or light up fireworks on New Year’s Eve, so people should’ve known the consequences,” Kompol Agustina added.

However, he admitted that all the fireworks collected will be returned to the vendors a few days after the New Year’s Eve celebrations. “We only seized the fireworks temporarily, and plan to return them on the 3rd of January 2022, once the celebration ends. We have already collected their data for easier procedures,” Kompol Agustina concluded.

Restrictions on the New Year’s Eve celebrations were initiated to prevent mass gatherings that would potentially create a Covid-19 cluster.
