    Fair enough, but a light sentence in view of the fact that she knowingly assisted a murderer to evade detection and to dispose of evidence.

    It would seem on the face of it that they got off lightly, but what is nick like in Bali for cop killers?

    The prosecutor, however, said an appeal would be considered.

    Aha.

    Would be justice if she appeals and they give her a few more years.

    That'd make me larf!

    Dizzy chick, should have stayed with her ex and kids and business, instead of rushing off on a romantic hoopla with a younger con-man during her horny midlife crisis phase.

    Now she's lost the lot,...for lurv..

    Most of these hippy types are soft as shite but the thought of an arrest for a drug offence in a country like Indonesia maybe brought out dreadheads panic, paranoia and inner rage. It looks like he has bought himself a lighter sentence.

    It does look like that.

    Six yrs for cop murder is extraordinarily light.

    Let's see who's gonna feed him perks while inside. Maybe he'll hafta endure a bit of botty bashing too, to survive the pressure.
    I wonder if he can get weed in there, if he's a little compliant, like this,,,,

    In hindsight, I suppose a dead cop witness to drug use on the beach saved the perp from a longer sentence for drug possession.

    Five minutes googling and you can see Indonesian cops and military are notorious for extra-judicial killings and other horrid things.

    Indonesia makes the Thai murders of demonstrators and Thaksins extra-judicial killings look downright civil by comparison.

    INDONESIA 2013 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT

    “The government failed to conduct transparent and credible investigations into
    some allegations of extrajudicial killings by security forces…Corruption abuse of prisoners and detainees, harsh prison conditions, trafficking in persons, child labor, and failure to enforce labor standards and worker rights continued as problems.

    “There were Several reports that the government or its agents committed arbitrary or unlawful killings during the year....
    …..
    “During the year human rights groups and the media reported that both military and police personnel committed unjustified killings, some of which were not investigated transparently

    https://www.state.gov/j/drl/rls/hrrp...eap/154385.htm

    “The Indonesian mass killings of 1965–1966 (also variously known as the Indonesian massacres, Indonesian genocide, Indonesian Communist Purge, Indonesian politicide,or the 1965 Tragedy) were large-scale killings and civil unrest which occurred in Indonesia over many months, targeting communist sympathizers, ethnic Chinese and alleged leftists, often at the instigation of the armed forces and government. Initially it began as an anti-communist purge following a controversial coup attempt by the army group (30 September Movement) in Indonesia. The most widely accepted estimates are that 500,000 to more than one million people were killed,[4] with some estimates as high as two to three million.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indone...5%E2%80%931966
    Good grief, you bring up the 1965 genocide of communists and Chinese that brought Suharto to power!!!!!

    This has no relevance to present day policing in Bali, it was to do with land reforms in Bali the Communists wanted and the traditional caste system being in conflict. Powerful upper caste landlords protected their patch.

    It was not the police who did the killing, it was the army who provided logistics for local black shirt youth movements. The army eventually had to restore order after 5% of the population was killed, but it was not police.

    The old structures are not as powerful now. I have had stand up blazing confrontations with Army officers in their own headquarters and had them apologise and grovel, unthinkable thirty years ago.

    The present day cops are genuinely focused on keeping the tourists and public safe, which transcends all their other worries as they do not want anyone hurt. Perhaps I should elaborate a bit on that, it is in the context of civilians and tourists and the acts of mass murder IN RECENT HISTORY.

    Mother and her toyboy lover left police officer to die on a Bali beach after beating him with a broken bottle

    07:00, 30 APR 2017



    As the sun rose over Kuta Beach on the exotic island of Bali, the light bounced off the crystal sea water and the morning beams warmed the white sands. For many, it was a picture-perfect holiday destination but, as the sun came up on 16 August 2016, a body was discovered on the beach.

    Wayan Sudarsa, 53, was facedown in the sand with dozens of wounds. He was a Bali police officer and he’d been brutally beaten to death. Nearby were some identification cards – they belonged to an Australian woman. Just what had gone on in paradise?

    Sara Connor, 45, was a single mum from Byron Bay, Australia. She had two sons aged 11 and nine, and was dating a British man, David Taylor, known as DJ Nutzo.

    David, 34, and Sara had started out as friends, but had grown closer after his marriage broke down. In April 2016, they started dating, but David was struggling with visa problems since divorcing from his wife.

    He’d been advised to leave Australia and return on a holiday visa, so David headed to Bali. He’d been there 10 days when Sara flew out to capital city Denpasar’s airport to spend a week in the sun with her dreadlocked toyboy lover, while her children stayed with their father back in Byron Bay.

    On August 16, after dropping off Sara’s suitcase at the house they were staying in, they had dinner and headed to the beach with some beers. At one point, Sara left her bag on the sand while they went to the water’s edge for a paddle. When they returned, Sara’s bag was gone. It contained her driver’s licence, identity cards and about £175.

    David spotted a man nearby and thought he’d taken it. The man was Bali police officer Wayan, but he denied having anything to do with the missing bag. David didn’t believe him, so started to frisk him – then a fight broke out.

    Wayan’s body was found by a security officer in the early hours of the next morning. He had dozens of wounds across his face and upper body where he’d been beaten with fists, a mobile phone, his own binoculars and a beer bottle. An autopsy revealed it would have taken around two hours for him to die of a brain haemorrhage, which could have been stopped if he’d received medical attention.

    David Taylor, one of the prime suspects to the murder of police officer Wayan
    Meanwhile, Sara’s cards were found near the body, and the police put out a public appeal for her arrest.

    The couple had moved on to another area where they’d visited markets and sampled local food. Sara turned on her phone and started to receive messages from worried friends – they told her she was a wanted woman, and that the police officer was dead.

    Sara and David burned their clothes, then they went to hand themselves in.

    They told police that a fight had broken out between them and Wayan. David claimed Wayan had smirked at him when he questioned him about the missing bag, making him doubt he was actually a police officer. When the fight started, Sara said she’d tried to break it up by sitting on Wayan’s back, but he’d bitten her. When they left, taking Wayan’s identity cards with them, they thought he was unconscious. He was, but because no one discovered him, the officer, who had served for 30 years, died of his injuries.

    Sara said they’d thought about going to the police but the taxi driver wouldn’t take them because they were covered in blood.

    The couple faced a number of charges including murder and fatal assault in company. They were held in Kerobokan prison, which faces constant allegations of violence and corruption.

    At the trial in January this year, Sara claimed she did nothing but try and break up the fight. While David insisted that he was acting in self-defence in ‘fear of his life’.

    Sara said that when they discovered the officer was dead, they were ‘desperate’, and burned their clothes in a panic.

    David explained that he suspected Wayan might have stolen Sara’s bag because he sniggered at them when they asked for help. ‘I thought, “This man could have done something,” so I searched him, his pocket, under his jacket and in his trouser pocket,’ says David.

    When Sara tried to separate the two men, David had continued to beat Wayan with the binoculars around his neck, a mobile phone and a beer bottle that was on the beach.

    During the trial, Sara and David were taken back to the beach to re-enact events of that fateful night. It was a spectacle – they wore orange prison clothes which had name labels on. They were watched acting out the attack, as David swung a broken bottle at a police officer who was pretending to be Wayan.

    The court questioned how Sara and David had escaped unscathed from a fight in which Wayan sustained over 40 injuries.

    At the verdict, David’s long dreadlocks had been cut off and been replaced with a more conservative cut. Both Sara and David were found guilty of ‘assault in company’ – because the victim didn’t die directly from the wounds they inflicted, but because his injuries hadn’t been treated.

    Wayan’s grieving widow was disappointed that they weren’t found guilty of murder.

    The judges said Sara had sat on the back of the police officer so he couldn’t fight back – not to break up the fight.

    In March this year, at Denpasar District Court, a panel of three judges sentenced David to six years in prison. David offered his ‘sincerest, deepest apologies’ to the family of Wayan saying, ‘I never intended to do harm to anyone’.

    Later that week, Sara was sentenced to four years. The pair continue to express their love for each other. Sara’s children sent their mum an emotional video message, saying: ‘Mum, we love you, come home soon.’

    A romantic break turned into a genuine holiday from hell – with one innocent man dead, and two people behind bars.

    It was the prosecution that appealed against Connor's light 4 yr sentence, demanding 8 yrs instead.

    She decided not to cross-appeal fearing a hefty increase in her sentence.
    She was lucky to get only a 1 yr increase to 5 yrs.
    Taylor still has to hang in there for 6 yrs.

    What's the odds, she'll drop the nutso, she's already blamed him for the murder.

    Australian Sara Connor arrives home after serving four years in Bali jail over police officer death


    A Byron Bay woman who was jailed in Bali over the brutal death of a policeman has arrived home in Australia.
    Key points:

    • Sara Connor, 49, maintained her innocence after Wayan Sudarsa's body was found on Kuta Beach in August 2016
    • Connor admitted to destroying the police officer's ID cards and, with her boyfriend's help, burning their bloodied clothes
    • She left Sydney Airport on Saturday night with a police guard

    Sara Connor arrived at Byron airport last night, wearing a face mask after spending almost four years in a Denpasar women's prison.
    In 2016, the 49-year-old and her British boyfriend David Taylor were accused of killing police officer Wayan Sudarsa, whose heavily wounded body was found on Kuta Beach.
    Throughout their highly-publicised trial, Connor maintained she was trying to separate the two men after a fight broke out between them over her missing handbag.
    She was given an early release this month and boarded a plane home to Byron Bay where her two sons live.
    Connor left the airport on a bus last night, with a police guard.


    Connor left the airport on a bus last night, with a police guard.(AAP: Paul Braven)A forensic expert told an Indonesian court Sudarsa died on the beach several hours after the fight and sustained 42 wounds to his body, including more than a dozen to his head and neck.
    Taylor admitted to bashing the officer with a mobile phone, some binoculars, his fists and a beer bottle as the men struggled, but said he was acting in self-defence.
    He was found guilty of group assault leading to death and sentenced to six years' jail.
    Connor admitted to destroying the police officer's ID cards and, with Taylor's help, burning their bloodied clothes.


    Sara Connor's boyfriend David Taylor remains in jail.(ABC News: Phil Hemingway)In their final plea to the judges during Connor's trial, her defence team said she was only guilty of destroying evidence, which carried a maximum seven-month jail term.
    Connor said she let Taylor burn bloodstained clothing because she was scared and was thinking of her children.
    She made an emotional plea to Denpasar District Court judges during her trial, saying she had no role in the death of Sudarsa.
    "I believe in the truth, which I have said to the police and in court from the beginning," she said.
    "I have never denied being there, but I swear I have never harmed the victim."
    Connor admitted to cutting up the officer's ID cards from his wallet, but said it was to protect him from identity theft.
