A 26-year-old Iranian man has been apprehended by Customs officers at Bali Ngurah Rai International airport with 1.046 kilograms of sabu-sabu (methamphetamine). Rouhallah Seish Abadi Bin Samad had reportedly made several visits to Bali in the past. In his most recent trip he arrived on Qatar Airways 638 on May, 13, 2010, after transiting in Doha, Qatar on a Qatar Airways flight from Damascus.

According to Radar Bali, Samad raised suspicions when he became nervous when his bags were x-rayed by Bali's Customs officers. The x-rays showed the concealed stash of drugs encased in plastic bags hidden in the side-panels of the luggage.

Concerned that the Iranian might be concealing more drugs, officials gave the man medications to purge any packets of drug concealed in his digestive system. After keeping the man under close supervision, no additional drugs were discovered.

The Iranian told investigators that he was acting as a paid "mule" and would be paid several thousands dollars by a contact named "Wahid" upon arrival in Indonesia.

Police estimate the street value of the confiscated drugs at Rp.2.2 billion (US$239,000).

If convicted, the Iranian can be jailed for 20 years and fined Rp. 1 billion (US$108,700).
