A 25-year-old man named Raja Andika Syah Putra will potentially face 14 of imprisonment for drug trafficking.
During a virtual trial on Thursday (2/9), the man who had been working as surf instructor was charged with 14 years of imprisonment by the prosecutor, Eddy Arta Wijaya after previously getting arrested for getting involved in drug trafficking in Bali. “I demand the Judges charge him with 14 years imprisonment as he was proven to violate Article 114 Number (2) of the Indonesian Narcotics Constitution.” Wijaya said on Thursday.
Prior to the arrest, the man who was originally from Padang, West Sumatra had attempted to distribute around 74.30 grams of crystal meth in the Bali area. When he was arrested on May 21st 2021 from his boarding house that is located on Jalan Cekomaria Number 3, Peguyangan North Denpasar, the officers from Bali Narcotics Investigation Bureau found quite a large amount of meth that he hid inside multiple concrete stones.
During the interrogation, the suspect admitted that he received the packages from a man who he called Boss at Lumintang Public Park. “The suspect received a total of 100 grams of meth from a man called Boss, and he was asked to split it into 31 different packages before distributing them.” Wijaya added. The suspect attempted to hide the packages inside formed concrete stones and then inside a plastic bag, stored below his sink. “The suspect has managed to earn money on two occasions from distributing the illegal substance; however he was arrested before being able to complete duties given by ‘Boss.” Wijaya concluded.
