Suicide-Bid American Gets Deportation Stay


An American man threatening to kill his four children and himself if he is deported from Bali received a stay on Wednesday.

Eli Gattenio, 50, has been barricaded in his Seminyak villa since last Wednesday after it was ordered he be deported to the US following a divorce of his Indonesian wife and alleged violations of his immigration status.

National lawmaker I Gede Pasek Suardika said on Wednesday, however, that Gattenio’s deportation was being postponed by the Justice and Human Rights Ministry, based on “humanitarian grounds.”

    Eli probably killed his wife and just tells of how she has abandoned her family.
    This guy is a monster and cheats and lies his way through every situation he finds himself in.

    The stories of this guy are unbelievable but true.

    He is a dangerous substance abuser who is probably in the process of getting what he has deserved for quite some time….. i.e to be separated from what he loves most > yes MONEY not his Kids!

    Wow, in USA this kind of thread is identified as terroism! His kids lives mean nothing, what obout other peoples lives, are garbage for him. Bali don’t need this kind of man.

    What we can learn from his sample?
