A villa in Seminyak is taking the spotlight and making headlines in Bali this afternoon after allegations surfaced that it exclusively catered to the gay community. Authorities on the island have since expressed their disapproval based on their belief that homosexuality is against cultural norms in Bali.

The Denpasar District Court yesterday sentenced three Bulgarian nationals to seven months in prison each for attempting an ATM skimming scheme in Bali. 

“Thereby sentencing defendants Boycho Angelov Karadzhov, Filipina Aleksndrov Lyamov and Stoyan Vladimorov Stoyanow to seven months in prison and a fine of IDR5 million (US$361),” presiding judge I Made Pasek said at the hearing, as quoted by state news agency Antara.
