He fronted a crowd of reporters yesterday wearing orange prison-issued clothes and a black balaclava.

Mr Roberts Lawyer Deni Sedana told News Corp Australia his client had "fallen ill" and that "he often suffered from depression and was a suicide risk" after he had been taken to hospital "in shock".

He will now be processed by police at Denpasar police station. His case will then be handed over to prosecutors to prepare for trial. It is likely he will soon be transferred to Kerobokan jail.

The self-described qualified accountant faces a maximum of 20 years in prison or the death penalty.
