A Russian national who allegedly extorted another foreign national by claiming to be a member of Interpol in Bali stands accused of extortion this week, meaning he is facing a maximum of 15 years in prison under Indonesian law.

Prosecutors at the Denpasar District Court yesterday said that the defendant, identified as EB, extorted a total of IDR171 million (US$11,973) from an Uzbekistan national in Bali, NR. 

The crime reportedly involved two other people, identified as MZ and A, who are still on the run. 

The months-long con began earlier this year in February, when the group approached NR and accused him of being involved with a fugitive. In a series of threats, the victim eventually wired IDR121 million to the suspects, and handed over a motorcycle unit worth IDR50 million. 

EB was eventually arrested for the scam in July, less than a week after the victim decided to report the scam to authorities.
