British former war correspondent on trial in Indonesia for hashish


A British former war correspondent on trial in Indonesia on charges of possessing hashish faces up to four years in prison, a prosecutor said on Thursday.

David Fox was arrested on October 8 along with Australian bar owner Giuseppe Serafino on the tourist island of Bali. Police said they confiscated a total of 10.09 grams (0.36 ounces) of hashish from Fox's clothing and house.

He is being tried at the Denpasar District Court, where prosecutor Erawati Susina said he could face a maximum four years in prison. Serafino is being tried separately and faces the same charge of possessing category one narcotics, which carries a maximum penalty of 12 years' jail, or the lesser charge of possessing narcotics for personal use, which carries a maximum sentence of four years' jail.
