Customs officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport  arrested on Monday, February 27, 2012,  a 54-year-old Australian man, Edward Norman Myatt, after flushing 1.103 kilograms of hashish and  1.11 kilograms of methamphetamine from his gastrointestinal system.

Myatt, who holds dual U.K.-Australian citizenship, landed on a Thai Airway flight. Actiing on intelligence, customs officer identified the man’s behavior as suspicious, prompting a closer examination, including an eventual x-ray of the man’s stomach organs.

According the I Made Wijaya of the Airport Customs office, narcotics officers had received a tip on Myatt’s possible connection with the illegal drug trade and details of his flight to Bali from New Delhi, India.

While Myatt was being escorted under guard to the BIMC Hospital in Kuta for x-ray examination, he tried to evade arrest by leaping from Custom’s office vehicle while stopped in a traffic jam. His escorts managed to recapture the man and eventually complete the trip to the clinic.

Following x-ray examination, the prisoner was given a steady diet of juices and milk that naturally yielded a large number of capsules containing methamphetamine and hashish during the course of the ensuing four days. In total, 72 capsules were evacuated by Myatt. The capsules contained 1.103 kilograms of hashish with and estimated street value of Rp. 661.8 million (US$73,530) and 1.11 kilograms of methamphetamine worth Rp. 679.3 million (US$75,480).

Police continue to investigate Myatt’s connections to the international drug trade while preparing a dossier for prosecutors who can, under Indonesia’s tough narcotics law, demand the death penalty for the man.
