Condoms for Bali HIV group confiscated at Denpasar Airport

THE head of the Northern Territory's AIDS and Hepatitis Council (NTAHC) has said she was left scared and surprised after being detained at Bali's main airport because she was bringing hundreds of condoms into Indonesia.

NTAHC executive director Kim Gates said the incident early last month occurred when she was trying to take 720 condoms to an HIV organisation in Bali.

At Denpasar Airport officials detained her and confiscated the condoms.

"I have actually travelled with condoms before so I was actually quite surprised," Ms Gates said.

"I was a little bit sort of scared. I didn't know what was going on."
