Australian tourist, Edward Norman Myatt (54) has seen Denpasar prosecutors call for the maximum penalty of death to be imposed for trying to smuggle 1.1 kilograms of hashish and methamphetamines concealed in 72 capsules ingested and concealed in his gut when he arrived in Bali of a Thai Airways flight on February 27, 2012.
Citing the amount of drugs and the method of concealment as indications that Myatt is a member of an international drug syndicate, prosecutors are seeking the ultimate punishment that can be imposed under the law.
Myatt, who has worked as a hairdresser, was a frequent visitor to Bali fueling suspicion that he may have carried drugs into Bali on past trips.
The man’s trial will continue on May 24, 2012 as witnesses are called in the case.
