About time that law breakers who disrespect the Indonesian authorities and show contempt for ordinary Indonesian people are deported. Don’t just deport them take a retina eye scan and ban them from your beautiful country for at least 2 years. People like this make my blood boil because here we are waiting patiently to be able to travel again. The quicker people take the vaccines and follow rules the quicker everyone to get back to the “new normal”

These clowns should be so lucky not to be in Singapore facing jail time and each pay a heavy fine. Recently a Brit may be behind bars, a fine or both for not wearing a mask on mass transit more than once back in May. Furthermore he had the audacity to appear in a Singapore court without a mask. White privilege?? No such thing in Southeast Asia. Follow the rules or go home. And while at it get a jab.

If an Indonesian citizen has committed a crime in a Western country he or she will face a similar song as any others. So why should it be any different for any foreigners behaving badly in this case especially when there is a delta surge in Indonesia...

@Randy, "Furthermore he had the audacity to appear in a Singapore court without a mask."

@Ben, with all due respect you think I didn't know that. Was Talking about hard crime earlier on. The drama was that these clowns didn't obey the rules. If getting Jail time for breaking mask rules like in Singapore that would even bring up more protests here.

Besides every other person is not wearing a mask now regardless of the vaccination rate be it in the US or in Europe. It seems that it will be mandatory mask wearing again due to the delta variant surge first detected in India.

@Randy, to be honest i doubt any western country have someone deported for not wearing a facemask. You could be fined for it, but it's comparable to be fined for not wearing a seat belt or helmet, not considered anything serious.
