Prosecutors in Denpasar District Court have asked the judges in the trial of 25-year-old Myuran Sukumaran to pass the death penalty on the alleged ringleader of the Bali nine conspiracy.
Prosecutors took an hour to outline their reasons for demanding the death penalty.
They painted a picture of Sukumaran as a man who conceived with Andrew Chan the entire conspiracy then provided money, tickets and hotel bookings for the couriers and ended by strapping heroin to the bodies of four people arrested at Denpasar Airport in April last year.
Prosecutors told the court he was at the head of an organised conspiracy to export a class one drug from Indonesia.
"We ask that the panel of judges hearing the case of defendant Myuran Sukumaran declare the defendant guilty of the crime of exporting first-class narcotics in an organised way, and without permit," prosecutor David Adji told the district court in Denpasar, Bali's main town.
He demanded that the panel of judges "hand down the death sentence to the defendant."
Yesterday prosecutors asked for one of the alleged drug smugglers, Scott Rush, to be sentenced to life in prison.
Under Indonesian law, the court is not bound to follow the recommendation by the prosecution team if Sukumaran is found guilty.
Prosecutors said that there were no mitigating factors in favour of the defendant, and that his crime ran against the Indonesian Government's tough anti-drugs drive, and also tarnished the image of Indonesia and Bali.
They said that the defendant had also "not been straightforward during his questioning and in court".
Sukumaran, who is from Sydney, showed little emotion as the prosecutors submitted their sentencing request in the Denpasar District Court.
Prosecutors said there was no reason to grant leniency.
It is the first time they have demanded death for one of the Bali nine.
Sukumaran is accused of affixing packages containing heroin on at least three of the mules from the so-called Bali nine - Renae Lawrence, Martin Stephens and Rush.
The gang of eight men and one woman, arrested after a tip-off by Australian Federal Police (AFP), are accused of attempting to smuggle the drug out of Bali to Australia.
Mohammad Rifan, one of Sukumaran's lawyers, asked for two weeks' time to prepare a defence comment in response but Judge Gusti Lanang Dauh gave the team until February 1.
Sukumaran was allegedly discovered at a hotel on Bali's Kuta Beach with several mobile phones and 350 grams of heroin.
He has denied any knowledge of the heroin seized at Ngurah Rai Airport last April 17, as well as that found at his premises when he was arrested.
