BALI, INDONESIA – A holiday in Bali is most people’s dream, but for one 14 year old school boy from New South Wales, Australia, it turned into a nightmare.

A few days after he arrived to the resort with his parents he was arrested for possession of drugs after buying 3.6 grams of cannabis worth $28 near Kuta beach, close to his hotel.

As Australian Ambassador Greg Moriarty tried to negotiate his release, the boy was locked up at the notorious Kerobokan prison where killers, drug dealers and sex offenders mix freely.

Wearing a bizarre Hannibal Lecter style mask to prevent being identified, the boy was later moved to the less intimidating Jimbaran Immigration detention centre.

With further pressure from the Australian Government, the boy will be put on trial this week. If found guilty the schoolboy could be sent back to Kerobokan prison for anything between 4 and 12 years.

An ultra-orthodox Jewish sect have attacked the Zisalek ice cream parlour in the Mea Shearim neighbourhood, also posting posters asking that people should not buy the ice cream cones.

The reason given is that people seen leaving the parlour are licking the cones, this according to ultra-strict Sikrikim group is disgusting and promotes sexual promiscuity.

The owners of the ice cream parlour introduced separate entrances for men and women, but this did not satisfy the religious zealots, who vandalised the premises.

Owner Guy Ammar said that “the local residents like us and told us not to give up”
