Australian Drug Convict Weds in Prison


A member of the so-called Bali Nine gang of Australian drug smugglers married his Indonesian girlfriend in Kerobokan Prison on Monday.

Martin Stephens, 34, is serving a life sentence for his role in a 2005 attempt to smuggle 8.3 kilos of heroin from Bali to Australia.

His marriage to divorcée Christine Puspayanti, 33, whom met Stephens while visiting prisoners as part of religious work, was held at a church on the prison grounds, prison chief Siswanto said.

Three members of the Bali Nine are on death row and are awaiting the outcome to final appeals.
