A Finnish woman, Tila Johanna Kivinen, escaped protective custody by Indonesian immigration authorities that were in the process of placing the woman on a plane for deportation.
The woman, who lists her profession as a nurse, was taken into by Indonesian immigration officers for creating a public nuisance in the Ahmed area of Karangasem, northeast Bali. Authorities suggest that the 30-year-old woman is mentally troubled and was in the process of being sent back home to Finland. She had overstayed her visa and was no longer able to present a passport when asked to do so by officials.
Kompas.com reports that Kivinen fought with immigration officers and escaped their custody at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
Efforts by immigration officers, police and the Finish Consulate in Bali to determine the whereabouts of the woman have been unsuccessful.
Immigration officials say the woman, who was in Bali studying Yoga, had caused disturbances in North Bali by refusing to pay for meals or accommodation.
Kivinen (pictured) is described as being 165 centimeters tall, blonde and has a wound on the right thigh. Anyone seeing this woman should report her whereabouts to police who are concerned for her safety.
The woman’s visa has expired and she is now staying in Indonesia illegally.
