A Japanese national caught red-handed carrying marijuana and the Denpasar District Court sentenced hashish through Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport to 7 years in prison on March 26, 2012.

As reported by Radar Bali, the decision of panel of judges lead by Komang Wijaya Adhi declared that 44-year-old Yao Noriyoshi had been proven to be guilty of being in possession of a Class One Narcotic in the form of 1.4 grams of marijuana and 1.64 grams of hashish.

His conviction of violating the 2008 Anti-narcotics Law means that Noriyoshi must spend 7 years behind bars and pay an addition fine of Rp. 1 billion (US$111,000) or have an additional 6 months added to his 7 years sentence.

In applying the severe sentence the panel of judges took into consideration that during the course of the trial Noriyoshi never admitted that the drugs found by officials were his and that his actions sought to undermine national efforts to forbid the use of narcotics.

The public prosecutor in the case who has sought a 5 –year-sentence expressed agreement with the sentence handed down to the Japanese, saying the State would not seek a higher penalty. Meanwhile, Noriyoshi’s attorney said he and his client were taking the possibility of an appeal under consideration during the allotted time of one week after the sentence in which an appeal must be filed.

Noriyoshi was arrested June 28, 2012 at Bali’s airport where the drugs were discovered concealed in his suitcase.
