Bali is worried it could lose its status as Australia’s favourite beach playground amid widespread protests in response to draconian government laws and a crackdown on tourists behaving badly in the beach resort.
About fucking time. Why anyone wants to go to this infested shithole
, run as it is by corrupt cops and a judiciary that is for sale, beggars belief.
JAKARTA (Reuters) – A former Indonesian Constitutional Court judge was jailed for eight years on Monday for accepting bribes to influence court rulings, the state news agency Antara reported. Patrialis Akbar, the second constitutional court judge to be convicted of corruption in three years, was also fined 300 million rupiah ($22,500). Akbar was accused of accepting $10,000 in bribes and causing losses to the state.
According to data from the KPK’s Anticorruption Clearing House (ACCH), at least 18 judges were prosecuted from 2010 to May 2018. One of the cases occurred in October 2017, when KPK investigators arrested Manado High Court Judge Sudiwardono. In June, Sudiwardono was sentenced to six years in prison for accepting bribes paid to influence an appellate bench handling a corruption case related to allowances for village officials (TPAPD) in Bolaang Mongondow, North Sulawesi.
Whats this all about?
Indonesia is gearing up to pass new laws making consensual sex between unmarried adults a crime, and also making it illegal for unmarried couples to live together.
Among other things, it would make it illegal to criticise the president, have sex outside of marriage, sell contraceptives and take away a women’s rights to choose an abortion
Sounds like Iran.
We have been told “Oh that wont happen please come and spend your money here”.
Right. We believe that. Until someone “gets offended” and the cops come calling anyway…both hands out to “look the other way”. Its already started, actually.
Already there are reports of Lombok hotels asking couples to provide proof of marriage before they are allowed to share a room.
Famous last words “It cant happen here”.
