Aussies visiting Bali get brutal reminder about the island’s dos and don’ts after tourist’s ‘immoral’ public sex act caught on CCTV sees him deported and blacklisted
Australians visiting Bali are brutally reminded of the island’s do’s and don’ts after tourist’s ‘immoral’ public sex act caught on CCTV sees him deported and blacklisted
A tourist caught in a public sex act by an angry Bali resident was quickly deported from Indonesia and blacklisted to remind visitors to the tropical paradise of the crackdown on tourist behavior.
The Italian man, 35, was caught on CCTV having sex with a Balinese woman in a residential alley in Kuta on September 9.
It is understood the man, identified only as LS, met the woman at a nightclub and the pair decided to go back to a hotel.
However, they couldn’t wait and ended up performing a sex act in front of a couple’s home.
A man inside was alerted to the pair by the repeated barking of his dog.

He reportedly initially thought the man was urinating before he saw he was with a woman.
“It turned out that when we checked the CCTV footage, they were having sex,” the man’s wife, Ayu Purwita, told a local newspaper. Detik Sulsel.
Ms Purwita said the pair ‘jumped a fence and ran’, but police were able to identify and arrest LS from CCTV footage. The woman he was with was not arrested.
The Italian’s visa was due to expire on October 3, but he was instead deported on a flight to Rome via Kuala Lumpur.
His name will be on Indonesia’s immigration blacklist for the next six months and can be extended for another six months at any time, at the discretion of the authorities.
“The person concerned will be subject to administrative immigration measures in the form of deportation and the person’s name will be included in the deterrence list,” said Sugito, head of Ngurah Rai’s immigration office.
More than 200 people were deported from Bali between January and August this year, including twelve Australians, Yahoo News Australia reports.

That number is a significant jump compared to 2022, when a total of 188 people were deported throughout the year.
Tourists in Bali will soon be given a list of ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ upon arrival on the island, following local frustration over unpleasant visitors.
The list will prevent travelers from pretending to be unaware of local laws when they misbehave, and is part of a wider crackdown that also includes a specialist ‘tourism task force’.
