(11/13/2010)

Convicted of trying to smuggle 796 gram of methamphetamine (sabu sabu) into Bali, a 26-year-old Iranian man, Rouhollah Serish Abadi Bin Samad, was sentenced to life in prison by the Denpasar District Court on Monday, November 11, 2010.

According to Kompas.com, the sentence handed down by the Court shocked the Iranian who had earlier heard State prosecutors demand the much more lenient sentence of 17 years imprisonment.

In handing down the punitive sentence, the chief judge cited how Samad's action had supported the distribution of narcotics in Indonesia and had tried to undermine national efforts to eliminate drug addiction. "The defendant's action have damaged the image of Indonesia," said chief judge Amzer Simanjuntak.

Speaking through his attorney, the Iranian said he will consider whether or not to appeal the court's sentence. Appeal of a sentence in Indonesia can sometimes result in a more severe sentence being rendered, which in Samad's case could mean a sentence of death.

Samad was arrested by Bali Custom officials at Ngurah Rai International Airport on May 13, 2010, with 976 grams of sabu-sabu concealed in the walls of his luggage. The man claimed he had been paid Rp. 20 million (US$2,175) to act as a courier for the drugs which have an estimated street value of Rp. 2.2 billion (US$239,000).
