A 38-year-old Balinese mother of two has been sent to prison for one year after falsely claiming her baby had been kidnapped.

Ni Wayan Sukerti made the false report last year, claiming that two motorcycle riders, unknown to her, had attempted to kidnap her baby. Ni Wayan also has a toddler.

Ni Wayan claimed that on November 1, 2019, the motorcyclists had attempted to kidnap the one-and-a-half-year-old baby boy, Ni Komang Puspadewi, at around 10.30am. She also said this had taken place north of Pura Subak Uma Desa on Batuyang Gang Walet Road in the Sukawati subdistrict. read more
