A 35-year-old male tourist from Japan is being processed through the Denpasar Courts after being caught with less than one gram of marijuana in his possession.
If the maximum sentence is imposed by the Denpasar Court, shop owner Watanabe Shinishi could face 12 years in prison for being arrested with 0.72 grams of marijuana at a Kuta nightspot on December 23, 2012.
The Japanese tourist, visiting Bali with his family, told police he brought the drugs from a man on the beach for Rp. 200,000 (US$20) and intended to use it for his own enjoyment.
The man’s trial resumes in Denpasar on April 16, 2013.
