Japanese actress Maria Ozawa yesterday, November 6, aired her frustration towards the immigration office of Bali, Indonesia after having her passport stolen by two alleged officers.
There to attend a friend’s birthday celebration, the 32-year-old said that the men asked to see her passport just as the party was about to end. The next thing she knew, the two officers have taken off with her ID without a word, leaving Maria feeling baffled. “As cheesy as it sounded, I had no choice but to show it to them,” said the star.
With the help of her friends, Maria was able to show up at the immigration office that same night to retrieve her passport. Apparently, someone from the party set her up, although the celebrity refused to buy the explanation coming from the officers with what happened next. “And after talking about nonsense for two hours in the office, they printed out some papers for me to sign. [They] gave me back my passport, told me over and over how famous I am in Indonesia and as I was walking out from the office, they asked me to take a selfie with them. Like what? Seriously?”
Maria then ended the note by calling out hardcore fans from Indonesia for having her privacy clearly violated. “This is so wrong in so many ways. I’m glad I’m well known but this country needs to change, these people are erasing the ‘good’ people out there. Stop harassing me every time I visit Indonesia. Clearly, I need more privacy. Wake up, Indonesia. I know you guys are better,” stressed the actress.
