Two foreign nationals involved in the assault and kidnapping of a Ukrainian man in Bali have surrendered themselves to the police.
The Deputy Chief of Bali Criminal Investigation Bureau, AKBP Suratno, confirmed that two out of 4 suspects involved in the assault and kidnapping of a Ukrainian man named Oleg Zheinov had surrendered themselves to the police department.
“The two suspects with initials AT from Russia and ID from Ukraine are already detained,” Suratno said during a press conference on Friday (4/2).
The incident can be traced back to when a Russian national named Volodymyr Kaminsky and his girlfriend V arrived in Bali for a vacation. They rented a motorbike from an Indonesian woman named Cenly Eleunora Musa and her Ukrainian boyfriend, Oleg, on December 31, 2021.
The motorbike was stolen the following day from the parking area of the villa where Volodymyr stayed. Upon knowing this, Oleg, Cenly, and two of their friends went to Volodymyr’s villa in Tibubeneng to ask him to take responsibility.
As the situation escalated, Volodymyr called his friend and asked him to call the police. Instead of calling the police, his friend had sent four expats to the villa with a car.
They assaulted Oleg and Cenly and dragged them into the car. After a while, the four expats took them back to the villa and left the location.
“The other two expats involved in the incident are still in hiding. Meanwhile, these two men who have surrendered themselves to us are also considered as witnesses,” AKBP Suratno concluded.
Oleg, Volodymyr, AT, and ID are currently detained at the immigration detention house, as they would soon be deported for violating Article 75 of Law Number 6 of 2011 concerning Immigration.
