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.
