Wanted: Auj-E Taqaddas Skips Sentencing Trial and Now a Wanted Woman
Auj-E Taqaddas, the U.K. woman under trial for criminal assault on an immigration official, has skipped her sentencing court session on Wednesday, for the third time on Wednesday, January 30, 2019
As reported by Radar Bali, the patience of judges and prosecutors may be at an end. Public Prosecutor Nyoman Triarta said on Wednesday: “Today the defendant could not be contacted. In fact, we have sent three formal summons to attend court.”
The third summons was sent on Monday, January 28, 2019. Prosecutors also sent the woman WhatsApp messages that were apparently received but left unanswered. “The WhatsApp message was only read. There was no good faith to answer.” Said Triarta who went to the Hotel Edelweiss in Kuta in search of the woman.
The prosecutor discovered that the woman had checked out from the hotel, adding: “We have already coordinated with the police (to find her), but have been unable to locate her. But what’s clear, the defendant is still in Bali. Her hand phone remains active.”
Strengthening the belief that Taqaddas is still in Bali is the fact that he name and identify have been placed on a “no-fly” list handled by immigration. Meanwhile, police are on alert at all sea crossings to capture her should she try for flee by land and sea.
The presiding judge in the case, Esthar Oktavi has announced a two-week deadline for Taqaddas’ capture so she can attend her sentencing session. After that time she will be placed on the most wanted list of the Bali Police and Interpol.
Police explain that Auj-E Taqaddas was not in detention, but allowed to stay at a local hotel during the trial that saw prosecutors demand a one-year prison sentence.
