The prosecutor of the court of Denpasar, the capital of Bali a province of Indonesia, called for three months in prison for 14 years old Australian teen who was arrested on October 4 on the island of Bali for buying about seven grams of hashish.

The teen could be sentenced to up to six years in Indonesia, where drug offences are harshly dealt with drug trafficking.

His arrest sparked media outrage in Australia, forcing the government to intervene. The Australian Foreign Minister, Kevin Rudd, had assured that “it would do everything to bring back the young.”

The age for the youth defendant also drew criticism because of the severity for the offence in the field in Indonesia, where justice does not provide courts for minors.

“We requested a prison sentence of three months, which is lower than the usual sentence. We take into account their age and the fact that their behavior can change,” said the representative of the prosecution, Gusti Putu Gede Atmaja I after the audience.

The tribunal shall forward its decision on November 25.
