Shock After Aussie Tourists Forced To Do 'Walk Of Shame'
Two young Australian tourists accused of committing a petty crime have been forced to do the "walk of shame" in Indonesia.
The "walk of shame" is when people accused of crimes are paraded around villages with signs hanging from their necks that declare whatever it is they allegedly did wrong.
The two tourists were accused of stealing a bicycle on Gili Trawangan, and subjected to humiliation.
Village chief Muhamad Taufik claimed CCTV recordings showed the two Australians taking the bike.
Surrounded by security officers, the tourists had signs hanging from their necks that read: “I am thieve [sic]. Don’t do what I did...!!!”
“We interrogated them, made an agreement, paraded them around the island and forced them to leave Gili,” Mr Taufik told news.com.au.
They were believed to be the first foreigners forced on the walk of shame on the Gili Islands this year.
The pair were not charged with any offence.
