While in Bali, he added, Marcus moved from one place to another six times until he was arrested in Badung on July 23. During the arrest, he was accompanied by a woman identified only by her initial WPC, 48, who is now a witness.

The case will be under the coordination of the National Police’s international relations division and the police attaché in the Indonesian embassy in Washington, DC. The case is handled under good cooperation between the Indonesian National Police and the US Marshals Service (USMS), Golose said.
