Choking to Death

Ugandan Man Faces Possible Death Sentence for Smuggling Drugs Concealed in his Gut into Bali

(9/21/2012) A 39-year-old Ugandan citizen, Bashit Gadafi Polikoko, has heard Bali prosecutors call for the death sentence in his ongoing trial before Denpasar District Court.

Poliloko is charged with trying to smuggle 1.055 kilograms of methamphetamine into the Bali, concealed within his alimentary tract.

Beritabali.com said prosecutors estimate the street value of the concealed drugs is Rp. 2.6 billion (US$274,000).

Polikoko arrived in Bali on board Qatar Airways flight QR 638 on June 30, 2012 with 66 capsules of drugs hidden in his digestive system.

The man’s lawyer told the court that Poliloko is merely a victim of an international drug syndicate.
