Cyber Crime Suspects Arrested In Bali


Some 39 suspects from China and Taiwan had been arrested from a luxurious villa in Indonesia’s resort island Bali on April 4, 2015, for allegedly involving in cyber crimes, an Indonesian police office said.

“We are going to hand them over to the People’s Republic of China’s police today, as soon as we finish all administrative procedures,” Chief of the Bali Provincial Police Inspector General Ronny Sompie stated Monday.

The Indonesian police, he noted, are not handling the case because the suspects carried out their criminal activities outside the archipelago. “We just helped the Chinese police by capturing the criminals,” he added.

Ronny further expected that Interpol provides the path to the Bali Police so that the police could anticipate the entry of criminals to the country. “Through Interpol path that should be given to us so that we can anticipate because Immigration will be able to track if we can get the data before they are in Indonesia,” he said.

On Saturday (April 4), all of the suspects were caught red-handed from a villa at Sekar Sari Street, Nusa Indah, Sanur, Denpasar, during a joint operation involving personnel from the Indonesian police headquarters, Bali provincial police, and Denpasar Timur police precinct.

The Chinese police representatives have arrived in Bali, he revealed, adding that if they were not caught, the suspects would have continued carrying out cyber crimes by targeting those living in China.
