An Australian has gone on trial in southern China for allegedly smuggling out 30 Kg of crystal methamphetamine out of the country.

The 25 years Peter Gardner can be executed if found guilty. The accused have reportedly told the court that 'he did not check his luggage.'

In a live online broadcast of the court proceedings on Thursday, Mr Gardner was heard testifying off-screen that he had made "a really big mistake" and brought "a big shame" to his family.

It may be added that China has strict drug laws - anyone found carrying more than 50gm of meth faces a potential death penalty.
