Possession of cannabis oil is not taken lightly everywhere in the world. This 45-year-old man, who told police he was a designer, was arrested after two bottles of cannabis oil were discovered in a package allegedly addressed to him
As reported by the Mirror, A British man has been accused of trafficking drugs in Bali and he could be sentenced to death if he’s convicted, Indonesian officials say.
The 45-year-old man was detained after he received a package from Thailand containing almost 31 grams of cannabis oil, it is claimed. The liquid was poured into essential oil bottles, the authorities said.
The man, who hasn’t been named by the authorities, appeared at a Bali police station on Thursday alongside four other foreign men accused of trafficking drugs.
All five were arrested separately over the past two weeks. At the police press conference, the men wore orange jumpsuits and black masks at one point as they were presented to the media.
Indonesia has strict drug laws, and it routinely gives death sentences to people convicted of smuggling or dealing. Local media said the British man was arrested after a package from Thailand was intercepted at a post office in Renon, Bali, on November 30.
Police claim the package was addressed to the British man, and an X-ray revealed that it contained two bottles with a yellowish, thick liquid. The liquid, weighing 30.76 grams, was tested and it was confirmed to be cannabis, said police.
