The Head of Bali Law and Human Rights Ministry, Jamaruli Manihuruk confirmed that Hruska has violated Immigration rules.

“He has been running an accommodation business named Selang Resort located in Karangasem that was funded by his father from Czech Republic” Jamaruli said.

The six month period ban from reentering Indonesia is pretty lenient. Other countries would be like five to ten years ban depending on the severity of the person's case. And probably jail time before being deported.

Why is it that the Eastern Europeans don't believe the laws are directed at everyone not them....

@Neil Gill, well it can be said for Aussies too. It seemed that breaking the law in Bali for example would somehow not affect them (Aussies) while traveling overseas. Australian laws do not carry overseas.

It can also be said for other nationalities including Indonesians with their respective laws traveling in Australia would not protect them should they break the law while visiting.

We have a big problem in Thailand with East European and Russian nationals ( among other nationalities) forging and uttering false documents to stay illegally on false passports, bank statements and working without proper visa's....many international wanted criminals are active as criminals hiding in the community . This ongoing situation is dangerous for legal residents and citizens.
