He asks that Australian tourists behave badly to face the prison


The Balinese courts should adopt a "no sympathy" approach to behaving badly towards Australian tourists, he recommended the Indonesia-based Institute in Australia.

Ross Taylor of the Perth-based group said that the Bali courts were too lenient towards trespassing and disrespectful vacationers who had to send them to prison.

His calls follow a recent series of bad behavior on the part of Australian holiday island tourists, including a man who allegedly kicked a man from his motorcycle during a "fury" in Kuta.

"Granting them an extended vacation in Bali and perhaps one to six months in the Kerobokan prison would perhaps illuminate some of these people," Taylor said 7 news.

However, Taylor said that the idea of ​​sending Australian visitors to prison was not popular among Indonesian authorities who did not want to have a negative impact on the crucial tourism sector of the island.

About 1.2 million Australians travel to Bali every year, most of them abiding by local laws and culture.

But there has been a recent wave of cases where Australians have acted violently or have been accused of breaking laws on the Indonesian island.

Last week, South Australian merchant Nicholas Carr, 26, said he was "too drinkable to remember", kicking a motorcyclist in Kuta while the stunned locals watched.

The accident video shows Mr. Carr dropping a local cyclist from his motorcycle in a shower of sparks, before intentionally bumping into the hood of a moving car.

Other footage, obtained from Channel 9, presumably shows Mr. Carr taking an ambush to grandfather Nyoman Purda and launching the stranger from the porch while claiming that someone was trying to kill him.

Carr told Channel 9 that he was "very drunk" after consuming "more than ten" vodka cocktails.

"I apologize, I don't remember anything," he said.

"I just want to apologize to everyone, to the victims, to the people of Bali, to anyone who is affected. I remember crashing a scooter. "

Mr. Carr is facing serious charges of assault, involving a maximum sentence of two years and eight months behind bars.

Earlier this month, an Adelaide model claimed to have been searched, detained by the customs, and asked to cough for nearly $ 40,000 after airport officials found "drugs" in her luggage.

Tori Ann Lyla Hunter said she had a medical note for treatment, which she used to treat anxiety and ADHD, but admitted that she was carrying more than necessary for the six-day trip.

He spent four days in a cell in Bali before being released and being able to return home to Adelaide.

And in May, a group of young Australians were branded as "savage" and "disgusting" after videos of them running naked came out, urinating in public and shouting insults at the locals in Bali.

The shocking video was shot by the group's Balinese tour guide and uploaded to Snapchat on Saturday, according to 7 News.

It shows at least five men, who look drunk, who shout in public, damage the property and continue with wild antics on a party bus.

Should there be stricter penalties for Australians who behave badly in Bali? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
