Out of Africa, Into Jail

Bali Prosecutors Demand 17-Year Prison Sentence of South African Librarian Caught with Drugs at Ngurah Rai Airport

(5/11/2012) A South African woman, Kedibone Sheilla Motsweneng (38), has heard Denpasar, Bali prosecutors call for a sentence of 17-years in prison and a fine of Rp. 1 billion (US$108,000) for trying to smuggle 1.9 kilograms of methamphetamine through Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on October 23, 2011.

The sentencing demands were made at the Denpasar District Court on Monday, May 7, 2012 where prosecutors told the court that Kedibone had been proven guilty of violating the 2009 narcotics law.

The South African defendant who lists her profession as a “librarian” arrived with the drugs concealed in her luggage as she disembarked a Singapore Airlines flight in Bali on October 23, 2011.
