Security at Bali’s new international arrival and departure terminal on the run-up to the APEC Conference was put to an enexpected test when on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, a laptop in use at an immigration counter was stolen.
Police quickly and effectively managed to recover the stolen laptop computer and arrest a 42-year-old Taiwanese national, Chen Ming Hsein, the following morning at the Hotel Nusa Dua Beach.
The computer was stolen at a 7:10 pm on the Tuesday evening from a special counter set up to assist delegates attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Conference (APEC) now underway in Bali.

After interviewing those who may have witnessed the theft and consulting other security measures in place, police were able to raid room 308 at the Hotel Nusa Dua Beach occupied by the Taiwanese where they found the missing computer.
Police placed Chen under arrest for steeling the computer shortly after arriving on Malaysian Airlines from Kuala Lumpur.
