Seven Months Sought for Aussie Drug Man
The Bali Times
Prosecutors at the Denpasar District Court requested on Wednesday a seven-month jail sentence for Australian drug suspect Robert McJannett, who was arrested upon arrival in Bali last December.
Under Indonesia’s harsh drug laws, the trade unionist had faced up to four years in prison in Bali.
But prosecutor Nyoman Sucitrawan told the court that McJannett was not a drug dealer and had only been in possession of 1.7 grams of marijuana.
McJannett had been using the drug to ease symptoms of various medical conditions including depression, the prosecutor said.
The hearing was adjourned until next Wednesday.Filed under: Arts & Entertainment
