The Deputy Chief of the Buleleng Police Department, Kompol Yusak Agustinus Sooai, confirmed that a police officer identified as Aiptu Wayan Putra Yasa was fired from the police institution for his involvement in fraud.

“Putra Yasa was already dismissed from his corps on December 31st 2021, but the official discharge process was conducted on January 5th 2022,” Kompol Sooai said.

He explained that this punishment was part of the police institution’s commitment to enforce the rules of the corps. This includes dismissing those who violate the Bali Police Department’s Instruction Letter Number Kep/979/XII/2021.

Sooai continued the official dismission process on Wednesday (5/1), although the suspect didn’t attend the ceremony.

The investigation began when a victim filed a report concerning an incident in 2020. At the time, Putra Yasa promised him work for a government official in exchange for money. The suspect then admitted that he and his partner named Made Muliasa had conducted fraud from 2013 to 2016. He was sentenced to 4 months in prison.

“There will always be reward and punishment, but I always warn that punishment awaits offenders,” Kompol Sooai concluded.

Finally!what about the rest? Post offices should be next as should be the Customs office. Both of these are ripping off receivers of packages from foreign countries. As an example, I shipped a 2.5 kilo package containing Xmas presents, vegetable seeds and smoked salmon via U.S.Mail, shipping cost $96 receiver in Denpasar Post Office had to pay another $100 for "Import Duty", is that a rip-off or what? $296 for a package that was worth $50.

@Heinz Schirmaier, I've got used to ordering goods from abroad, I avoid customs and post in Indonesia like the devil the holy water. 5 years ago I paid 5,000 IDR for every mail from abroad with a value below 100US $, two years later 20,000 IDR, nowadays the customs and postage fees are higher than the value of the goods ordered. I am waiting until I can go to Thailand again to meet my needs there. I am not ready to support the corruption
