Indonesian prosecutors have asked that an Australian accused of trafficking heroin from island of Bali to Australia should face life in prison.
Scott Rush could escape the maximum penalty of death
Scott Rush, 20, is the first of a group of nine Australians in the case to hear the prosecution's plea.
Mr Rush was arrested at Bali's airport last April, allegedly with 1.6kg (3.5 pounds) of heroin strapped to his body.
Convicted drug smugglers in Indonesia can face the death penalty.
But prosecutor Made Sudarmawan said Mr Rush's age and good behaviour during the trial so far were mitigating factors.
A term of life imprisonment in Indonesia can mean the prisoner spends the rest of his or her life behind bars, but there are cases of remission, analysts say.
The trial is expected to resume next week, when the defence will make its plea.
Dubbed the "Bali nine" by the Australian media, the eight men and one woman were arrested at Bali airport in April and accused of carrying more than 8.2kg (18lb) of heroin.
Indonesia has increasingly become a transit route for drug traffickers, and courts across the country have toughened up on offenders in recent years, sentencing several foreigners to death for serious drugs offences.
Another Australian, beauty therapist Schapelle Corby, was found guilty of smuggling marijuana into Bali and sentenced to 20 years in jail last May.
