The Bali Police are seeking the whereabouts of a female foreigner named Valeria Vasilieva, who allegedly called the police in Bali corrupt in a viral social media video.
The woman, also known as Miss Global Estonia 2022, stated in a video uploaded to her TikTok account, @lerusi_k, that the police in Bali are corrupt because they always ask tourists for money. The video is believed to have been made during Vasilieva’s vacation on the Island of the Gods.

Bali Police Head of Public Relations Police Chief Commissioner Syamsi said the Bali Police are still looking for Vasilieva, who is most likely still in Bali.
The team from the Special Crimes Committee is still looking for the whereabouts of the person concerned. They want clarification first,” said Syamsi on Thursday 19th May 2022.

A lot of people here worked up over her "allegations". Apparently the influences left Indonesia on 17th May.

When preparing for a Bali trip people might come across this article in the foreign press:

In any case; before posting anything online while in Indonesia take a deep breath first before pressing 'post' button:

a) the ITE (internet) law of 2008 can be used to criminalize almost anything like simply sharing your opinion;

b) and while in Indonesia you are likely monitored by the "virtual police";
