Marten told the press that he was bound to Bali for a second honeymoon with his wife, Anna Maria Sofyana, before considering how to restart his film career interrupted by his latest imprisonment.

Roy, who received a joyous homecoming at his home in Bekasi on the outskirts of the Indonesian capital, told the press the he was blessed to possess an extraordinary family and an extraordinary group of friends.

The details of the star's holiday in Bali are being carefully guarded to allow Marten and his family and undisturbed reconciliation after his two year absence.
