Advise Your Clients on Dangers of Bali Cocktails

Lombok, Indonesia

Following the death of yet another Australian tourist from drinking a methanol-laced cocktail, at a bar on Gili Trawangan off the island of Lombok, the head of the Bali Tourism Board, Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, said yesterday that tourist restaurants and bars in Bali and Lombok should be closed down if they are known to sell adulterated produce.
