Police name two Bulgarian nationals suspects in ATM skimming case targeting foreign tourists have been in Indonesia since May 2. Police say they confessed to attempting to steal ATM data, with foreign tourists as their targets.

Two Bulgarian nationals have been named suspects in connection with ATM skimming after local residents in Nusa Penida allegedly caught them in the act and brought them to the police. “The two foreigners have been named suspects in an ATM skimming attempt. We are still doing further investigation on both of them,” Mirza Gunawan from Klungkung Police told Tribunnews. He added that the Bulgarians, identified by their initials KZI, 24, and GZI, 25,

“They already had plans for skimming. They went to Nusa Penida to survey which ATMs they could use as targets,” Mirza was quoted as saying. Bali has a pretty bad rap for ATM skimming, and this certainly isn’t the first time that Bulgarian nationals have been involved with such cases. Late last year, four Bulgarian men were arrested after police caught them tinkering with cash machines in Sanur. That was followed by yet another arrest in February of five Bulgarian men in Uluwatu, who were also connected with an ATM skimming scam. “We hope that this case will push local residents to be more alert and report

immediately if they see any suspicious activities,” Reka Sanjaya from Nusa Penida police, as quoted by Balipost. KZI and GZI was first brought to the Nusa Penida Police Station, but their case is now being handled by the Klungkung Police. The pair told the police that they’d learned skimming from the internet, and were both farmers back home, according to a report from Tribunnews. Authorities say neither KZI or GZI were successfully able to copy any sensitive information, but police reportedly secured all of their belongings, including their laptops and suitcases. Under Indonesia’s Information and Electronic Transactions Law, they could face up to 7 years in prison. (coconuts.co)

Balinese teen defeats world champ at international surfing competition

An Indonesian teenager pulled off a stunning upset Monday by defeating two-time surfing world champion Gabriel Medina in Bali. Granted a wildcard spot to compete in the World Surf League (WSL) event at Keramas beach on Bali’s east coast, 19-year-old Rio Waida quickly proved why he is considered Indonesia’s next big hope on the international stage. Waida scored a low combined twowave score of 9.60 out of 20, but that was still enough to edge out 2018 world champ Medina and Deivid Silva — both from Brazil — in clean head-high waves.

“I’m very happy I won in the first round, especially because I was competing against Gabby Medina, the world champion,” Waida said in a post-heat interview. “The waves were small, but I know the break here so I could implement my strategy. “I don’t care about other competitors — I just thought about myself.” On his best scoring ride, Waida — who finished third in the WSL World Junior Championships last year — completed a series of powerful maneuvers in the pocket of the wave that earned him a 5.67 out of 10 and cheers from fans on the beach.

The Balinese surfer followed that up with a 3.93, which was enough to see him advance to round three where he will compete against the winner of a round-two elimination heat. Some five decades after surfing was first introduced to Bali by foreign visitors, Waida is from a new generation of Indonesian surfers that are stamping their mark on the international scene. The Corona Bali Pro is the third stop on the 11-event men’s world tour and follows competitions on the Gold Coast and at Bells Beach in Australia. John John Florence, a two-time world champ from Hawaii, currently has the tour ratings lead and advanced on the first day of the competition along with event favorites Italo Ferreira, Filipe Toledo and Jordy Smith.
