“According to the report we received, the 6 foreign nationals broke into a villa belonging to a local and claimed that they get the property from god,” Yudhistira said on Wednesday (6/4).

These expats broke down the front door of the villa on Saturday (26/3) at 1:00 am. The owner spotted them and asked them to leave the property, but they were unfazed and refused to show their legal documents. The owner immediately reported the incident to the authorities.

When authorities from the immigration and the police office arrived, all the expats were detained as they refused to cooperate with the officers.

“The suspects were proven to violate our laws and regulations and will face deportation,” Yudhistira concluded. All the suspects are kept at the immigration’s detention house in Jimbaran while waiting for their deportation.

There are a lot of Russians in Bali keeping a low profile as they should be. It's hard to distinguish any other Eastern Europeans speaking more or less the same language. English is definitely not their first language.

These foreign criminals were probably drunk...this is a a lesson for other expats to behave and not to break the law as you would normally follow in your own country.

No money from home coming through? No surprise that they’ve turned to crime via gangsterism. Maybe it’s time to cancel the humanitarian visa extensions to a population that can’t spend.
