Aussie drug smuggler faces 15 years

PROSECUTORS in Bali have stepped back from their threat to call for the death penalty for Australian drug smuggler Edward Norman Myatt.

They have asked the judge for 15 years imprisonment instead.

Myatt, 54, an Australian citizen who had been living in London before his arrest, has admitted to smuggling just over a kilogram of hashish and five grams of crystal methamphetamine into Bali.

The drugs were found in 72 capsules which Myatt had swallowed.

Judges in Denpasar court were told authorities became suspicious at Myatt's "abnormally large belly" and took him to a hospital for scans.
