    TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe enforcement of the emergency state of public mobility restrictions or Emergency PPKM in Bali also targets foreign nationals. From the results of the Yustisi Operation aimed at monitoring and disciplining the public over the predetermined health protocols, the province’s immigration decided to deport three foreigners.

    The Bali Regional Office of the Law and Human Rights Ministry Head, Jamaruli Manihuruk, said his side conducted the operation on July 8 and arrested 14 foreign citizens suspected of violating the basic hygiene principles.

    “Three of them were found guilty of violating health protocols and were recommended deportation,” said Jamaruli in a press conference in the Ngurah Rai Immigration Office on Monday, July 12.

    They were Murray Ross from Ireland, Ayala Aileen from the United States, and Zulfiia Kadyrberdieva from Russia.

    According to Jamaruli, they violated the Home Affairs Ministerial Instruction No. 15 of 2021 on Emergency PPKM in Java-Bali and Circular of Bali Governor No. 9 of 2021 on the Covid-19 Emergency PPKM in the New Era in Bali. Thus, they were subject to deportation based on Law No. 6 of 2011 concerning Immigration.

    However, Jamaruli stopped short of detailing violations committed by the three foreign nationals. He said the immigration received a recommendation of deportation from the Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) which carried out the Yustisi Operation.
