Dozens of debt collectors forcibly towed the car of a hotel guest in Kuta on Wednesday afternoon (2/2).
Debt collectors went to a hotel in Jalan Kubu Anyar, Kuta on Wednesday afternoon, causing a disturbance to other hotel guests and staff.
According to witnesses, dozens of men went to the hotel receptionist and asked the staff to call a guest who owned the car with registration number DK 1990 OS, parked in the hotel’s parking area.
When the car owner appeared, they all began arguing as the debt collectors kept insisting the owner give up the car along with the legal documents. By-standers and other guests started to feel uncomfortable and scared.
“Police officers who were spotted coming to the hotel didn’t do anything to help, although the car owner asked them to take the car with them until the situation gets better,” said a source.
The car was finally towed with a truck, though the owner didn’t give the debt collectors the keys and documents. “The car owner told us that it wasn’t legal to take the car without an official letter from the court,” the source added.
The hotel staff hopes to avoid similar situations as it may harm their reputation among travelers. Meanwhile, the police department hasn’t published any official statement concerning this issue.
