    Bali court adjourns Angus McCaskill case

    AN AUSTRALIAN man facing up to 12 years in an Indonesian prison for cocaine possession must return to court in Bali on Thursday, after his sentence request hearing was postponed.

    Angus McCaskill, 57, was charged with three offences after he was caught with 3.84 grams of cocaine at a supermarket in Tuban, near Bali's international airport, in June last year.

    The prosecution had been due to submit its sentence request at the Denpasar District Court today but the case was postponed until Thursday.

    The New Zealand-born Melbourne resident appeared in court last month to answer questions from a panel of three judges.

    McCaskill apologised to the court for his actions while also admitting to having used cocaine on a previous occasion.


    "I know (it's illegal) and I apologise for that. I (used it) in 1996 ... once, (but) I stopped using it," he told the court.

    Aussie Angus McCaskill out of notorious Bali jail after High Court appeal


    A MELBOURNE man is expected to return to Australia this week following a 14-month stint in Bali's notorious Kerobokan jail for cocaine possession.

    Angus McCaskill was initially given seven years in jail after being caught with less than four grams of cocaine after a boozy night out in Bali in June last year but had his sentence slashed in April to just 12 months following a High Court appeal.

    An appeal by prosecutors against the lower sentence has now been rejected by the Indonesian Supreme Court, meaning the 57-year-old is set to walk free.

    He has been released into the custody of immigration officials and could fly home to Australia as early as today.

    It's understood the court made the appeal decision a priority as McCaskill had already served his term.

    However, he was forced to remain in Kerobokan while the appeal was pending.
