Johnsson and Remi were found with a total of 11.6 grams of cocaine between them.

An Australian architect who has been accused of selling cocaine to tourists with his Indonesian girlfriend has laughed before he was paraded in front of cameras for a press conference in Bali.

Police investigated and during a raid of her premises found packages of cocaine inside her trousers pocket, two packages inside a sanitary pad and one package inside a pillow.

The authorities allege they found nearly 12 grams of cocaine, worth about $3,000, packed into several small plastic bags under floor boards at the residence.

"Brendon [Johnsson] admits he bought it from a man name Made in Legian Street, on August 3rd for 40 million rupiah".

Bena was allegedly promised payment from Johnsson for selling four packages. But she hasn't been paid.

According to police, Johnsson had been living in Bali for four years.

Indonesia has some of the world's toughest anti-drug laws and drug traffickers can be sentenced to death for carrying more than five grammes of some drugs. "Remi claimed the same", Purnomo said.

Brendon Luke Johnson, from Brisbane on Australia's east coast, was arrested Saturday with his Indonesian girlfriend at their rented unit in Kerobokan, an area that has become popular among expats.

The 43-year-old designer, who has been living in Bali for four years, said he sold the drugs to pay for his addiction, Purnomo said.
