(5/11/2012)

A 39-year-old English teacher from East Java reportedly collapse in the Denpasar District Court on Thursday, May 10, 2012, when a panel of judges handed her a 20-year sentence for trying to smuggle 3.5 kilograms of methamphetamine through Bali’s airport in October 2011.

Theresa Avilla Yanti Siwi, in addition to 20 years behind bar, was also fined Rp. 10 billion (US$1.1 million), a failure of which to pay will add an additional six months in jail.

Prosecutors had demanded life imprisonment instead of seeking the death penalty, allowed under Indonesia’s tough anti-narcotics laws.

According to The Jakarta Globe, the head of the judicial panel, Gunawan Tri Budiono, ruled the woman guilty of violating Article 113 of the 2009 law on narcotics and, in the process, of having tainted the image of educational institutions.

Arrested after flying to Bali form Kenya, the woman told police she had carried the drugs from Mozambique where she was paid US$700 to hide them in the lining of her suitcase. After her arrest, she provided the name of the drug dealer, Erika Dewi Widya Yanti, who was subsequently arrested by the police and is standing trial separately in the same case.

Also arrested and undergoing trial is Nurhadi Imron who was to sell the drugs as his part in the crime.

Because an appeal of the case would have engendered the possibility of a new verdict with the stronger penalty of death before a firing squad, Theresa’s lawyer immediately told the court his client accepted the verdict.
