The Denpasar Court has sentenced Jorgei Rafael Albornoz Gamarra to 10 years imprisonment.
The Peruvian was caught smuggling 4kg of cocaine back in December 2018 by custom officers at Bali’s airport.
“We sentence the defendant to 10 years in prison and a fine of Rp1billion (USD 70,500),” said Bambang Ekaputra, head of the panel of judges.
The sentence was less than what was earlier demanded by the prosecutor. Based on Article 113 of Indonesia’s 2009 law on narcotics, Gamarra could be subjected to 15 years imprisonment and Rp10billion fine.
