Till Death do They Depart

Two Malaysian Drug Smugglers Receive Life Sentences for Smuggling Drugs into Bali.

(7/17/2010) Continuing a recent tradition of handing down stiff penalties to those who break Indonesia's anti-narcotics legislation, two Malaysians were sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday, July 14, 2010, by a panel of judges in the Denpasar District Court of Bali.

Boo Guan Teik (46) and Chang Cheng Weng (39) were convicted of trying to smuggle more than 2 kilograms of Narcotics on January 20, 2010, via Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport.

The Malaysian men were sentenced to life in prison and fined Rp. 2 billion (US$217,400). The sentence read by presiding judge was the same punishment demanded by State Prosecutors.

The two men were caught wearing body packs concealing a combined 1.95 kilograms of methamphetamine (sabu-sabu). The two had arrived on a Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong.
