Wayan had been a member of Bali’s police force for 35 years. His bloodied corpse was found on Legian beach on August 17, 2016, with 42 wounds, including grisly head injuries.Connor served just under four years of her five-year sentence. Surya Dharma, spokesperson for Bali Justice office, said Connor would be taken to the Ngurah Rai airport immigration office after her release on Thursday morning. She will be processed from the immigration side of things for her deportation. She will soon fly out to Australia via Jakarta since there’s no flight to Australia from Bali. Immigration will also test her for coronavirus, as it is a requirement to fly. She will not fly out today, but soon, we have been advised that there’s a flight to Australia for her”. At present, Garuda Indonesia is operating one flight per week from Jakarta to Sydney and another flight to Perth.Kerobokan Women’s Prison Governor Lili, who uses just the one name, said when Connor first came to the jail she had been very emotional.Now she has changed a lot, for the better. In the beginning, her emotions would run high, we slowly approached her by involving her in many prison activities. Religious activities, painting classes, hairdressing, knitting, any prison activities she would join. Now she has become someone the other prisoners look up to. She has come a long way.”
Lili said Connor was excited to be reunited with her family again but also anxious about the media presence outside the jail. The police officer’s widow, Ni Ketut Arsini, said the death of her husband was in the past and life had to go on.We have accepted the fact that we lost him, that it was his fate for him to be taken from us tragically like that. For me to be a widow, for my sons to grow up without a father. We need to continue with our lives. We are not forgetting him, he will always be in our memory, but we need to move on. Ni Ketut said she did not want anything do with Connor, including an apology from the Australian woman.
No. We don’t want anything to do with her. Nothing. We moved on, we are not angry at her or holding a grudge towards her. But we can’t, we simply can’t forget what she did. She should live her life, as we will live our life.The 49-year-old Connor, a mother of two teenage boys, had maintained her innocence through the four-month trial. The fight between Taylor and the police officer started after Connor’s handbag went missing while Taylor and Connor who had been lovers and were having a romantic rendezvous in Bali were kissing by the water’s edge. Sudarsa stated he was a police officer, but Taylor accused him of stealing the handbag.
