Authorities in Indonesia's Bali have detained a Danish tourist for featuring in a pornographic video uploaded to social media.

The 50-year-old woman could face a jail term of 10 years if she is found guilty of violating the Pornography Law, said Bali Police chief police Stefanus Satake Bayu Setianto, as reported in the Jakarta Post.

Under Indonesian law, any person exhibiting nudity, sexual exploitation, intercourse or other pornographic content in public can face a maximum 10 years in prison and/or a fine of Rp 5 billion (US$335,000).

The woman was found to have exhibited her genitalia in a recent viral video, in which she was seen lifting her skirt and leg to the camera while riding a motorcycle as a passenger.

An investigation found that the video was apparently taken at around midnight in December 2022 in Seminyak residential area on the west coast of Bali.

Her motive remains unclear and the investigation is ongoing.

Police said the tourist returned to the country on April 9, 2023 at Ngurah Rai International Airport using the visa on arrival facility. Her visa is valid until June 7.

Famous for its beaches and ancient temples, Bali has become a top tourist destination in recent years thanks to its generous visa policies.

It has also cracked down on foreigners violating public order following a string of recent incidents.
