The brother of a Canadian teacher who has been detained in Indonesia for two months without charges says his brother is now being held for another 30 days.
Neil Bantleman, of Burlington, Ont., was arrested in Jakarta in mid-July during a police investigation into the alleged sexual assault of three kindergarten students.
Bantleman, who worked at the prestigious Jakarta International School, was detained along with an Indonesian teaching assistant and both men have denied the allegations.
Guy Bantleman said Friday that his brother was handed papers Thursday night telling him he'll be spending another 30 days there.
He says his brother has yet to be charged with anything and is being held with no evidence, adding while the family expected the detention to be extended, they are still shocked and disappointed.
Guy Bantleman says he believes the extension is being done to make it appear the police have done everything possible in their investigation.
