A 24-year-old Indonesian woman said she was sexually abused in Ubud by 2 Turkish men who claimed to be journalists.
According to the information from the Vice Director of Bali Criminal Investigation Bureau, AKP Suratno, the incident occured when the victim with initials (TNL) was sitting at Lovin Bar in Ubud to edit a video on Thursday afternoon Oct 3rd 2020.
2 suspects approached the victim and sat next to her. The victim had met one of the suspects before, so she didn’t find it suspicious to talk with them.
