A New Zealander has been sentenced to 15 years in jail by a Bali court on drugs charges.
Antony de Malmanche, 53, claimed he didn't know the 1.7kg of crystal meth was in his backpack when he flew to Bali from Hong Kong on 1 December 2014.
He believed he would be meeting a woman he had met online.
The judges could have imposed a maximum sentence of death and prosecutors had recommended 18 years in prison for de Malmanche.
They said he deserved a long jail term as the drugs had the potential to harm 1700 people.
