Outraged Balinese authorities are trying to track down two female tourists after one of them was filmed by the other brazenly crossing a street while totally naked.
The incident was filmed in the village of Canggu in the Indonesian island of Bali and police spokesperson I Gusti Agung Kerta Suryanegara admitted that it has “caused a stir” in the community.
In the footage, a naked woman is seen crossing the road while a fully-dressed pal films her with her phone outside a pharmacy.
When she gets to the other side her pal who was filming also crosses over and hands the naked women some clothes.
Reports said the incident sparked a heated debate on social media with locals and foreigners taking part.
One Indonesia netizen said: “[People] like this should be arrested, fined, deported and banned from Indonesia for life. Without taking tough action, we are just jokes to them.”
Suryanegara, who heads a Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) department in Badung, said they are trying to track the two foreign women down and are in the process of gathering information.
He told local media: “It’s disrupting order, which means it was inappropriate and not in accordance with our culture and nature.”
He added: “It’s causing a stir.”
