Frenchman sentenced to death over Indonesia drug smuggling

Source: BBC News

A Frenchman has been sentenced to death for drug trafficking in a shock verdict after prosecutors had asked for a 20-year prison term.

Félix Dorfin, 35, was convicted of trafficking about 3kg (6.6lb) of various drugs into the Indonesian holiday island of Lombok.

He was arrested in September last year at the island's airport.

Indonesia has some of the world's strictest drug laws - including death for some traffickers.

2. His sentence should be commuted

That being said he wasn’t caught with a joint but over 6 POUNDS of dope.

Why do these morons courier drugs through places like Indonesia and Singapore knowing the penalty is death?

8. Oh, no. I wish the guy could go back in time and not make this fatal mistake. Why?

Why do these guys traffic drugs in these countries that have such harsh laws? Yeah, I know it's the money. But there are other countries. Other illegal activities that don't result in a death sentence.

Countries especially don't like foreigners trafficking drugs into their countries.
