(7/3/2010)

Shock and dismay were the reactions of eight Iranians convicted of drug smuggling as they were given life sentences by the Denpasar Court on Friday, June 29, 2010.

Prosecutors had sought 18-year sentences for the men, but the panel of presiding judges opted to give life sentences to the men who had tried to smuggle large amounts of methamphetamine concealed within their alimentary tracts.

Masoud Soltani Nabizadeh, Seid Soltani Nabizadeh, Mehdi Ale Nejab Golestani, Alireza Safar Khanloo, Bahman Mirzadi, Daryous Omid Ali, Mosen Muhamed, and Saeid Shahbazi were caught as they attempted to smuggle 4.7 kilograms of methamphetamine with a potential street value of over US$1 million.

The men immediately declared to appeal the sentence of the court, opening the way for a revised sentence of less severity or a possible death sentence at the end of the appeal process.

In handing down the tough penalties, the presiding judge said he saw no mitigating circumstances that would have prompted him to impose a lighter sentence.
