The Nusa Penida Tourism Activist Association (HPPNP) has filed a report to the police department regarding the illegal fees in several tourist places in Nusa Penida.
The Head of HPPNP, I Putu Gede Suka Widana , confirmed that he has filed a report to the police concerning the illegal fees being collected from tourists. This is on top of the official levies that are collected by the Klungkung regional government.
“Tourists are being required to pay illegal fees on top of the official levies. That’s what makes us concerned,” Widana said on Wednesday (6/4).
During a meeting that was attended by the Head of Nusa Penida Police and Military Department, Widana explained that he has received many complaints from the local tour guides and drivers as their customers were double charged upon entering tourist spots in Pejukutan Village, Nusa Penida.
“This is really unethical, because visitors were unofficially charged for sightseeing,” Widana added.
Meanwhile, the Head of Nusa Penida Police Department, Kompol I Gede Redastra, stated that he will conduct an inspection of those tourist spots.
“We will begin our investigation by collecting information from the poeple around that area and will try a persuasive approach to prevent the issue from becoming bigger,” Kompol Redastra concluded.
