“When asked to pay the rent for the villa, the perpetrator refused to pay. He lost his temper and damaged the contents of the villa, resulting in losses of more than Rp91 million,” explained Jansen.

He said the police will take firm action because his disorderly conduct and crime can tarnish the reputation of Bali, a Hindu-majority island that relies heavily on tourism. (un)
