The Head of the Badung Police Department, AKP Roby Septiadi confirmed that the suspect was arrested along with 109 packages of cocaine and a package of hashish. “The drugs that were possessed by the suspect are considered one of the most expensive drugs in the market, so we assumed that his buyers were either rich expats or locals here.” AKP Roby said on Friday (9/7).

Foreigners who were given visa extensions are now selling drugs to stay longer. Maybe it’s time to remove all foreigners who have no valid reason to stay now that vaccines are available in their home countries? Vietnam has ordered all such foreigners out by July 31.

.you know america has major problems with drugs. I have seen it destroy families. Wreck everything.. i love your country. Because of strict drug laws. I was only there month and a half. Left the day before closes. March 20 2020. To experience people who have never taken drugs most your whole society. It woke me up.. PLEASE. UNTILL you see what it has done to america. Please throw those people in jail long time. Deport the expats. You have to.. they and drugs are very bad. Balinese are the kindest people i have ever met in my life. Some people who get on drugs need given a chance. Maybe only one. And need to be educated. Drug dealers . Just go to prison long time. Expats deport them .they know better. They fuel the drug trade. So polisi please have mercy on some. People must be eduacated. In america. They have billboards showing pretty girl before meth. And girl after meth. You can see them they look like walking dead . Their lifes destroyed . #1. Love your family

@J West, yes it seems many have stayed on in Bali just to take advantage of easy living for themselves and to flaunt the rules and laws of Indonesia
