Bali police arrest Australian accused of sexually abusing four girls in Denpasar
The 70-year-old man is alleged to have given the victims, aged about 10, clothes, sandals and money, and could be jailed for a maximum of 15 years.
An Australian man is accused of abusing four girls aged about 10 over a four-year period in Bali.
The 70-year-old has been taken into custody and the Australian consulate has been advised, Bali provincial police spokesman Hery Wiyanto said.
“The victims then were given things like clothes, sandals and money of Rp 200,000 [$AU20],” he said.
It is alleged the victims were abused once but the crimes date over the past four years.
The children have told police they were taken to a house in Denpasar and molested in a bath.
Police say they have statements from the girls and physical evidence sufficient to charge the man, who they referred to by his initials.
“The number of victims could be more because, during the search in the suspect’s house, we found names of people whom we haven’t found out whether they’re victims or not,” Wiyanto said.
“If there are people whose children were victims, please report.”
Police are considering charges under Indonesia’s Child Protection Act carrying a maximum 15 years’ jail.
