So what’s the bet for the likely penalty from an Aussie court?

Released on parole for time already served in PNG…. And maybe if the magistrate is feeling particularly vindictive… a good behaviour bond.

Yes; agreed, time served ..

Good behaviour bond is interesting option; the drug owners back in Aus might have other more permanent plans.

First stop after arriving in Aussie is to go to a DAME and renew the Licence and then an IFR check; back in business!

Add Cutmore to the list of disgraced Aussie that have wronged the PNG people; by the way, where is Fred Martens these days?

A year in a PNG kalabus would be as bad as 10 in an Aussie air conditioned-all-comforts-provided jail, so let us pray he does another year up there, then who cares if he is set free? His life, and rectum, will never be the same. The only place he would ever be likely to get a flying job would be Burundi or the Congo.

Sarcasm and lack of faith in the PNG judicary may be well founded, but cross jurisdictional prosecution will be interesting.
PNG legislation may be incapable of prosecution, but Australia isn't a prosecutor on PNG's behalf for offences committed in a sovereign nation.
So what offences has old mate committed in Australia that he can be prosecuted for under Australian law?
Just saying...

Intent to traffic in a commercial quantity ? Probably in his favour that he busted the a/c on departure.
Had he turned up back in Oz there would probably have been a reception committee observing the proceedings. And etc.!!
Some vid about of the departure..!

Drug pilot Cutmore might have some esteemed company in Bomana jail

Sean Honey, son of Tropicair PNG, Managaing Director, Tony Honey (according to Tropicair web site a few minutes ago) has been busted and remanded for drug and fire arms offences in POM after importing large quantities from USA. Sean was also in trouble earlier this year in Cairns when arrested and charged with cooking Meth/Cocaine etc in the quarantine hotel. Magistrate let him off so as not to prevent his PNG work permit being re-issued. Bad mistake!

Troppo….. I’m not a lawyers arse, but why do you presume that old mate can’t be charged here with offences that occurred outside Australia? (War crimes, human trafficking, etc are)

Mach E Velli…. I don’t believe that puppy has spent one day in a PNG jail, he’s been holed up in significantly more comfortable digs, presumably at Aussie taxpayers expense. Something to do with medical issues , DFATs generosity knows no bounds.

You don’t have to be much for a lawyers arse these days. After my recent episode, I can attest to that !
