Australian man Robert Andrew Fiddes Ellis has been jailed for 15 years for sexually abusing 11 young girls in Bali

Key points:

Robert Ellis stood trial for abusing girls aged between seven and 17 over a two-year period
He allegedly lured children with money and presents
His lawyers say they will appeal sentence

The 70-year-old, originally from Melbourne, stood trial for abusing the girls aged between seven and 17 over a two-year period from 2014.

It was alleged he lured his victims with money and presents and then took them to his Bali home and bathed and sexually assaulted them.

"I have nothing more to say, I'm sorry," Ellis said to the waiting press before being led from the court.

"Well, I am 70 now, 15 years would take me to 85. I don't know if I'll live that long."

Judge Wayan Sukanila said Ellis' crime could stain Bali's image.

"What he did can ruin the future of his child victims, they are the nation's asset to build Indonesia one day," the judge said.

"And secondly, his crime can stain Indonesia's tourism image and especially Bali."

With all the pedophile sex tourists these days it might increase tourism to Bali. Not the kind of tourists you really want, mind you.

Ellis' lawyers say they will appeal the sentence.

Last week, in a bizarre press conference held at the court, Ellis insisted on his innocence, claiming he paid his victims "generously" to give them mandi — the Indonesian word for bath.

"Try and interview the girls if you can, try and interview the girls and see if they want me in here being punished," he said.

Not much hope for someone that shallow and narcissistic. He thinks he was doing them a favour.
