Authorities in Bali Rearrest Russian Interpol Fugitive

The Bali Regional Police has arrested Russian Interpol fugitive Andrew Ayer alia Andrei Kovalenko, nearly two weeks after he escaped from a holding cell at the Ngurah Rai Immigration offices in Denpasar on February 11.

“[Police and Immigration] officials arrested Ayer and his girlfriend Ekaterina Trubkina at a villa in the Seminyak area. He was arrested last Wednesday after he went on the run for 13 days,” said Immigration Office head Eko Budianto.

“We secured potential exit routes from Bali to ensure Ayer cannot escape from the island. We also mobilized police and immigration from the Gianyar to Karangasem districts for a manhunt to search for him prior to his arrest.”

Bali Regional Police spokesman Police Grand Commission Djuhandani Raharjo Puro reiterated Eko.

“We are holding Ayer as an Interpol fugitive for his involvement in narcotics. On the other hand, we are holding Trubkina for being his accomplice,” he asserted.

Ayer escaped from Immigration custody after he was visited by Trubkina. Indonesian authorities were set to deport him to an undisclosed country, where he will be handed over to Interpol, when he went on the run.

Ayer served a 1.5 year jail sentence at Bali’s infamous Kerobokan Penitentiary prior to his escapade.
