Bali News: Wages of Sin in Bali

(5/14/2011)

Bali continues to be a wrong turn for those seeking to participate in the narcotics trade.

The Denpasar court handed a 13 year prison sentence to 29-year-old Thai woman, Ampar Junporn, for trying to smuggle 208 grams of methamphetamine concealed in her vaginal tract. Added to the prison term was a fine of Rp. 1 billion (US$113,640) which, if left unpaid, will translate into an additional stint behind bars.

Following a pattern of harsh penalties from the courts for drug crimes, the panel of judges increased the woman's penalty from the 10 years demanded by public prosecutors.

The woman was initially arrested at Bali's airport on November 6, 2010, where a body cavity search revealed the drugs concealed on her person.

Meanwhile, a member of the anti-narcotics team at the Tabanan police sector, Putu Sutrawan, is now on trial in west Bali after being caught in possession of 4,995 ecstasy pills. On Thursday, May 12, 2011, prosecutors asked the court to punish the policeman with 15 years in prison and a fine of Rp. 150,000 million (US$17,050).

Sutrawan was arrested in September 2010 based on information provided by suspect in a narcotics case. Police found the commercial quantity of ecstasy pills in the possession of Sutrawan at the time of his arrest.
