Cok Ace told reporters today that he deeply regrets the incident.

“Especially since it occurred in Ubud, where culture and tradition runs deep,” he said.

The vice governor then lamented certain types of tourists that Bali seems to attract.

“It’s not just a Bali issue. There are countries at war, countries in economic turmoil, [and their people] see Bali as having this extraordinary pull,” he said.

“Everything is cheap [in Bali], the people are kind, so [foreigners] come to Bali. Not just the good ones; the stressed ones, too.”

As for Tuschinski, officials said that she was admitted to the Bali Provincial Mental Hospital right after the incident.

Police previously stated that she became depressed as she can no longer afford staying in Bali.
