The Prosecutor, I Wayan Sutarta confirmed that the suspect could potentially be charged with the maximum jail time for getting involved in drug trafficking during her stay on the island. Anastasiia admitted that she was tempted to start operating this illegal business after receiving an interesting offer from another Russian national who is now considered a fugitive.

Prior to the arrest, the suspect received an offer from a Russian man named Ivan to buy a package of crystal meth for a good price from him. “According to her WhatsApp chat with Ivan on March 22nd 2021, he offered her a package of high quality meth for USD 42 (IDR 600,000) only. And she immediately took it.” Sutarta said during a virtual trial.After agreeing with the price, the suspect took the package from a place that is close to her villa that is located on Jalan Babagan, Canggu North Kuta.

A few hours later, officers from the Bali Police Department came to the suspect’s villa around 12:30pm and began their search. As a result, the officers found a package of crystal meth weighing 0.62 grams that she stored above her fridge.

After conducting a drug test, the suspect surprisingly tested negative for any kind of narcotics, so the officers changed their charge from possession of drugs for personal use into possession of drugs with the intent to sell, which has a harsher punishment in accordance with the Indonesian Constitution about Narcotics.

It seems, that the northern Europeans do not respect Indonesian law in any way.

@Neil Gill, you seldomly hear "ordinary foreigners" breaking the law nor doing illegal activities in Java or in other provinces in Indonesia. But it does not mean that it hasn't happened before.

But Bali seems to be the place for just about "anything goes"...
