An Appetite for Kung Foo

(12/14/2013)

Two foreign businessmen are facing criminal charges in Bali for assaulting a travel agent who brought customers to the Feyloon Restaurant in Kuta.

Facing justice are Malaysia Frederick Wog Wei and Hong Kong citizen Wat Yiu Fai who have been charged with assault under Section 170 of the Indonesian Criminal Code (KUHP) with a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

Wong Wei who works as the manager of the Feyloon Chinese Restaurant and the Restaurant's owner Yiu Fai beat Bali travel agent Hendra Haryanto in a parking lot opposite their restaurant on August 4, 2013.

As quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Public Prosecutors Peggy Ellen Bawengan told the court that “both the accused joined in committing an assault that resulted in wounds on their victim.”

The court was told on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, how the travel agent did not realize he was being followed by the men when he returned to his car in the parking area and was set upon by Wong Wei and Wat Yiu.

The men knock aggressively on the car window of Haryanto and repeatedly struck the guide causing lacerations and bruises to the man’s face.

Haryanto tried to run away from the men but was cornered again at the adjacent gas station where the beating continued.

The owner and manager of the restaurant were reportedly upset by Haryanto’s refusal to pay an additional Rp. 10,000 (US$0.90) per customer when they wished to increase a group meal check from Rp. 150,000 (US$12.50) to Rp. 160,000 (US$13.30).

Nyoman Sudiantara, the lawyer representing the two men, has called on the court to see the case in a proportional way, concerned that a harsh punishment would deter foreign investment in Bali. Sudiantara argued before the panel of judges: “If my clients are ruled legally at fault in the disciplining of their subordinates, this case will have an affect on foreign investment in Bali.”

Trial continues in the Denpasar District Court with a verdict expected before Christmas.
