(4/20/2012)

Another person convicted of trying to smuggle drugs via Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport is now facing the prospect of life in prison

A 36-year-old teacher from Malang, East Java, Theresia Avilla Yanti Siwi, recently heard prosecutors demand life imprisonment for trying to smuggle 3.755 kilograms of methamphetamines into Bali. This was followed by a similar life sentence demand on April 17, 2012, for Greek Nikolaos Bouikidis, also 36 years, who tried to bring 4 kilogram of methamphetamines into Bali via the airport.

Prosecutors told the court that Bouikidis, who works as a bus driver in his native Greece, was shown to have deliberately and purposely tried to bring methamphetamines weighing nearly 4 kilograms into Indonesia via Bali’s airport. The amount of drugs involved and the damage the criminal act to Bali’s reputation, according to State Prosecutors, warranted a life sentence behind bars.

In mitigation, Nikolaos has freely admitted his crime and asked forgiveness from the people of Bali. Prosecutors are also seeking a Rp.10 billion US$1.1 million) fine from the man.

Nikolaos committed his offense on October 3, 2012 after disembarking a Qatar Airways flight from Doha.

Acting as a mule or courier, Nicholaos says be was promised a fee of US$5,000 once he successfully delivered the shipment to a man in Jakarta.

Police are estimating the street value of the methamphetamines at Rp. 10 billion (US$1.1 million).
