Tourist jailed in Bali for slapping immigration officer

A British tourist who slapped an Indonesian immigration officer has thrown another epic tantrum as she was jailed in Bali during a holiday rampage.

Auj-e Taqaddas, 43, kicked, screamed and called her jailers names as she was led to court, where was given a six-month sentence.

A video shows her attempting to stop the men placing her in handcuffs, before trying to kick one near the groin, The Sun reports.

As she continues to struggle, she shouts: “I am walking, there is no need for this! Come on!”

Finally she is bundled into a waiting car.

Several other videos have also surfaced since the infamous airport incident apparently showing Taqaddas causing chaos around the holiday island.

The other videos appear to show her attacking a security guard with a broom and chair, and screaming at hotel staff.

Her antics have earned her the nickname Dora the Explorer online, according to local news outlet Coconuts Bali.

Directorate General of Immigration spokesman Theodorus Simarmata said the other videos were probably recorded before Taqaddas was arrested and detained.

The unruly tourist was first charged after she arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Indonesia, in July last year to catch a flight to Singapore.

The woman had been issued her boarding pass and was moving through immigration when the officer noticed she had overstayed her month-long visa by a whopping 160 days.

Taqaddas was taken into an office and told she had to pay a fine of about $35 for each of the days overstayed.

Her foul-mouthed tantrum was caught on camera and went viral online, and she was hit with a $5600 fine.

Her trial began in December, and just concluded with her being sentenced to six months in prison, after being charged with violent behaviour against a government official.

During the trial Taqaddas claimed the video had been edited.

After being sentenced in Denpasar District Court, Taqaddas said the court was corrupt and she had been tortured by police three times including on Wednesday.

She was arrested before the trial in a shopping mall after failing to appear in court on several occasions.

“This is a sham court who was only listening to the dirty prosecutor who did not bring me to the court for six months,” she said.

As two officials escorted her from court, she shouted: “Indonesia is a criminal country. Indonesian law is corrupt. Indonesian judges are corrupt. No lawyer was provided. Indonesian immigration is corrupt.”

Immigration Chief Ngurah Rai Aris Amran said at the time of the incident: “She slapped the officer, who is a respected guard.

“She pretended not to know that she had overstayed.

“She touched immigration, which means touching representatives of the nation. So we reported it to the police.”

The original video shows how the fine sent Taqaddas into a rage and she was caught on camera branding immigration officer Ardyansyah, 28, a “f***ing ba****d’’.

When she tried to snatch back her passport, Ardyansyah quickly pulled it away — and she retaliated by slapping him.

In the video, Taqaddas is heard blaming “f***ing immigration’’ for causing her to miss her flight and telling them to “take the f***ing money and get lost’’.

She continues: “I’m your f***ing mother’’ and then slaps the guard.

Taqaddas then says: “You aren’t paying for this f***ing flight. You b*****ds told me to bring the money, why didn’t you b*******s tell me anything else.

“And shut up your f***ing camera and show your ugly face in that camera.’’

The guard says “this is my office”, to which she replies “this is your office, well show your ugly face”.
