A Malaysian national will be deported after finishing his 13.5 years of imprisonment for importing narcotics into Bali.
The Head of Bali Law and Human Rights Minister, Jamaruli Manihuruk confirmed that a man who has been identified as Gibinathan V Loganathan (aged 37) from Malaysia will be deported and blacklisted from entering Indonesia after finishing his jail sentence in Bali’s Narcotics Prison, that is located in Bengal, on Friday (19/11).
Jamaruli explained that prior to the release, Gibinathan was proven guilty of smuggling narcotics into Bali. “Gibinathan was arrested for violating the Indonesian Narcotics Constitution by importing narcotics that weighed over 5 grams onto the island,” Jamaruli said on Sunday (21/11). After officially being released from prison, Gibinathan was transported to the detention house of Denpasar’s Immigration Office Class I to begin his deportation process.
The deportation process was delayed as the Immigration Officers are still waiting for additional documents from Gibinathan’s origin country. Additionally, Jamaruli warned all ex-pats who have been staying in Bali to avoid any violations to Indonesian laws and regulations. “I warn everyone to never attempt to smuggle any kind of illegal substances into Bali to avoid harsh punishments in accordance with our constitution,” Jamaruli concluded.
