Russia rebukes its badly behaved citizens in Bali


Jakarta, IO – Russian Minister of Justice Konstantin Anatolievich Chuychenko gave a strong response with regard to cases of public order disruptions involving Russian citizens in Bali.

“All (Russian) citizens who come to Indonesia are obliged to comply with Indonesian law,” he said, reported Detik, Tuesday (4/4).

Konstantin, who signed an extradition agreement with the Indonesian government in Nusa Dua, Bali, Friday (31/3), emphasized that if Russian citizens are found to break the law they must be prosecuted.

The extradition agreement represents a mutual step taken by Indonesia and Russia in dealing with crimes committed by Russians in Indonesia. “Now, we have the legal basis in fighting crime. We will carry out mutual cooperation,” he said.

This extradition agreement, said Chuychenko, is also an important mechanism in the development of tourism in both countries. Previously, Law and Human Rights Ministry office in Bali revealed that from January 1 to March 27, as many as 56 foreign nationals had been deported, 18 of whom were Russians.

“The signing of this extradition agreement is a continuation of the agreement on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters between Indonesia and Russia signed in Moscow on December 13, 2019,” said Law and Human Rights Minister Yasonna Laoly.
