WATCH: British Tourist Slaps Immigration Officer Over $4,000 Fine

The Pakistani-born British research physicist overstayed her visit to Indonesia by five months.

A British tourist became infuriated when an Indonesian immigration officer issued her a $4,000 fine for overstaying her visa. The Pakistani-born, British-educated medical researcher went on a high-pitched, hot-blooded rant which culminated in her slapping one of two officers in the face.

According to the Immigration Office, the tourist named Auj-e Taqaddas arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, Indonesia, last Saturday but has been stopped by the Immigration office due to overstaying her tourist visa.

The Office says Taqaddas overstayed for 160 days, which is more than five months.

The officers fined her with $25 for each days Taqaddas overstayed in the country, which made up a hefty $4,000 fine.

However, the lady, in a very vocal manner, blamed the Office for making her miss her flight.

"You aren't paying for this f***ing flight. You b*****ds told me to bring the money, why didn't you b*****ds tell me anything else," she shouted at the officer.

On her ResearchGate profile, 42-year-old Taqaddas describes herself as a medical physicist and a therapeutic radiographer specializing in radiation oncology.

Following the incident, the immigration officers reported the matter to the police. Taqaddas ended up in an immigration holding cell, where she has remained since Saturday. 

"She pretended not know that she had overstayed. But people who visit a country to travel know they have a period of stay. She had overstayed since February," Immigration Chief Ngurah Rai Aris Amran said in a comment to reporters.
