(6/19/2011)

Beritabali.com reports a Thai housewife has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted in a Denpasar Bali court of trying to smuggle 358 grams of methamphetamine through Bali's airport.

Jip Jamasauk, aged 28, was deemed by a panel of judges to have been proven to have violated Indonesia's anti-narcotics laws by trying to conceal 16 condoms filled with the drugs in her alimentary tract when she arrived in Bali on January 9, 2011. The illicit drugs were later retrieved by custom officials after the administration of a purgative.

The ten-year sentence was less than the 12 years requested by prosecutors.

The mother of two who worked at a supermarket in Bangkok, told the court she accepted the sentence and would not seek an appeal.

“Emmy” Ueamduean Sophawet

Another Thai woman, 24-year-old “Emmy” Ueamduean Sophawet, also felt the weight of Indonesia’s anti-narcotics law last week when he was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment in a separate trial for trying to smuggle 1,280 ecstasy tablets and 2.68 grams of methamphetamine into Indonesia.

The sentence handed down on Thursday, June 16, 2011, was less than the 16 years sought by prosecutors.

When asked is she would appeal the sentence, the women claimed she had no money to file an appeal and said she would accept the sentence of the court. Prosecutors, however, have reserved the right to reconsider the sentence and possibly seek a harsher penalty for the woman.

“Emmy” arrived on a flight at Bali’s airport on December 16, 2010, where she was found to be concealing the drugs in her gastro-intestinal tract.
