Two Russian Tourists undergoing separate trials in Bali for possession of marijuana have been sent to prison for periods of 4 and 5 years.

Revaz Tolordava (28) was sentenced to 4 years in prison while Anton Pudikov (32) to 5 years on Thursday, October 10, 2013.

The two panels of judges hearing the cases agreed with prosecutors’ by declaring both men guilty of possession marijuana.

The men were also told to pay a fine of Rp. 800 million (US$69,500) each for their crimes or face an additional one month prison on their sentences.

Tolordava’s sentence was equal to that demanded by prosecutors, while Pudikov’s sentence was one year less than the 6 years sought by the State’s attorneys. The fine imposed on both men matched that sought by prosecutors, but time to be served in lieu of payment reduced from 3 months to only 1 month.

Revaz was arrested after police found marijuana in the baggage compartment of his motorcycle and at his residence on Gang Carik in Kerobokan. The drugs found at both locations totaled 72.56 grams.

Pudikov was arrested separately at him home in the Jimbaran Asri Complex with 83.52 grams of marijuana.

Radar Bali reports that both men were displeased with the sentence of the court and demanded their lawyer appeal the court’s decision. The lawyer tried to appease the two men, saying the sentences were in accordance with sentencing minimums demanded under Indonesian law.

Should the two men pursue an unsuccessful appeal they will also face the possibility that the appeals court may see fit to add more time to their original sentence.
