  • French national Felix Dorfin left is accompanied by an interpreter during his sentencing hearing at a district court in Mataram Lombok Island Indonesia Monday

The Mataram District Court in West Nusa Tenggara sentenced a French citizen to death for drug trafficking on Monday.

Dorfin was arrested carrying a suitcase filled with about 3kg of drugs, including ecstasy and amphetamines, after flying into the airport from Singapore.

Indonesia has some of the world's most tightened drug law, including death by firing squad for some drug smuggling and it has sentenced foreigners to death in the past.

"The court convicted defendant Felix Dorfin death sentence", presiding judge Isnurul Syamsul Arif said in a court session.

He was jailed in Mataram, the provincial capital, following his arrest, but managed to escape in January by bribing a police officer.

C'est donc au tour de Bruxelles de se pencher sur les négociations tarifaires menées par la centrale avec les industriels de l'agroalimentaire.

The public prosecutor, Ginung Pratidina, initially sought a 20-year prison term and a Rp 10 billion ($690,000) fine for Dorfin.

It was not clear if the jailbreak played any role in Monday's stiffer-than-expected sentence. Since the inauguration of President Joko Widodo in 2014 in Indonesia, a total of 18 death sentences were carried out. The judges found Dorfin guilty of violating Article 113 on drug smuggling in the 2009 law on drugs Dorfin was arrested by customs officers on September 21 a year ago at Lombok International Airport in Mataram, where he had just landed from Changi Airport in Singapore. The lawyer Deny Only Indra spoke of a "shocking ruling".

"If he had known, he wouldn't have brought it here", Indra added.

There are scores of foreigners on death row in Indonesia, including cocaine-smuggling British grandmother Lindsay Sandiford and Serge Atlaoui, a Frenchman who has been on death row since 2007.
