Meanwhile The Head of Badung Public Civil Service Officer, I Gusti Agung Ketut Suryanegara said that he hasn’t found the foreign national who was scavenging in his area. “I’ve already heard the information, so I deployed some officers to find that man. I think he was the same man who was previously spotted begging in the Pecatu area a couple of weeks ago.” Suryanegara said on Wednesday (7/4).

In similar news, on Tuesday (30/3) a Russian national was detained by a police officer after getting caught begging in the Pecatu area. During the interrogation, the man admitted that he was running out of cash in order to survive while staying in Bali. But the police officer decided to let him go after giving him a warning. Suryanegara explained that the man could have been deported for what he was doing. “The officer should’ve detained him so we could cooperate with the Immigration Office to potentially start the deportation process.” Suryanegara concluded.
