Indonesian court sentences French drug smuggler to death


MATARAM, Indonesia: An Indonesian court sentenced Frenchman Felix Dorfin to death for drug smuggling on Monday (May 20), in a shock verdict after prosecutors asked for a 20-year jail term.

Dorfin, 35, was arrested in September carrying a suitcase filled with about 3kg of drugs including ecstasy and amphetamines at the airport in Lombok, a holiday island next to Bali where foreigners are routinely arrested on drugs charges.
