12 Years Seeking Justice

Local Law Mafia Slips Control of Government of Indonesia


Executive Summary:

For 12 years Michael Patrick Donnelly and his two sons Sean Wayan Donnelly and Brenden Surya Donnelly have struggled without success to win their legal rights against a group including ex-wife / mother Ni Made Jati, lawyers Ida Bagus Wikantara, S.H. and Mochamad Rifan, S.H., and rogue members of legal institutions in Bali which have used false documents and manipulated legal processes to cause a simple marriage / divorce to become a complex of 7 civil cases and 11 criminal cases in the two countries of Indonesia and the United States.

The ex-wife / mother has a limited education and is apparently under the control and being manipulated by a Bali law mafia which has ravaged family and national assets, including an estimated USD 30 million sent secretly outside the country, and an unknown but significant amount moved into the pockets of rogue members of legal institutions in Bali.
