Bali Custom's officials arrested 7 Iranian nationals at the Island's Ngurah Rai International Airport on Wednesday, December 9, 2009, caught with nearly 2.5 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine or Sabu-sabu concealed in capsules previously ingested and carried in their alimentary tracts.

One of the seven was initially brought to a local medical center for x-rays when customs officials became suspicious of their travel documents and demeanor. The medical screenings revealed the concealed capsules. Quick work by custom officers including a review of the passenger manifest and trip to a local hotel booked by the man and his traveling companions yielded 370 capsules and the total arrest of 7 men.

Depending which charges are leveled against the men by prosecutors, penalties could range from as few as 5 years to a maximum punishment of execution before a firing squad.

The seven men now in police custody are Mehdl Alinejadgolestan, Brahman Mirzaei, Mohsen Muhammadiargasl, Daryoush Amidali, Alireza Safarkhanloo, Masoud Soltaninabizadeh and Saeid Soltaninabizadeh.

Police continue to interrogate the men and examine their belongings, hoping to trace the illicit drugs to a Chinese business man in Jakarta who was waiting for the men's arrival in the capital.
