A 59-year-old Australian named Allan James has been detained for overstaying in Bali.
The Head of the Badung State Attorney Intelligence Service, I Made Gde Bamaxs Wira, confirmed that the suspect was detained for violating immigration policy by illegally staying for 8 years in Bali.
“The suspect has been temporarily detained at the Immigration’s detention house while waiting for his trial schedule,” Bamaxs said on Friday (18/3)
The suspect was proven guilty of staying on the island with a tourist visa for over 8 years.
“The suspect entered Bali in 2014 with his tourist visa and he hasn’t been doing anything for work during his stay,” Bamaxs added.
However, Bamaxs hasn’t published further details concerning this case as he’s still waiting for the trial.
“Basically, the suspect was detained for being unable to show us his stay permit. We seized his passport as an evidence and he will potentially face a 3-month imprisonment,” Bamaxs concluded.
