Going on a holiday to Bali? Leave the drugs at home
A former poltical candidate and would be union offical has been busted for trying to import drugs into Bali from Australia.
Indonesian authorities allegedly caught Robert Paul McJannett, 48, with two grams of marijuana in socks in his luggage at Denpasar Airport.
Officials say McJannett, a crane operator, was initially uncooperative following his arrest, attempting to flush the marijuana down a toilet.
He had been detained after arriving in Bali with his 21-year-old son on a Virgin Blue flight from Perth on Monday night.
Given the publicity surrounding past drug arrests and harsh prison sentences it's a mystery why anyone would seek to import drugs into Bali. Just stupid, I guess.
