ALOR SETAR - Two friends have been sent to the gallows by the High Court here for drug trafficking two years ago.
Mohd Nasir Md Sahimi, 35, and Mohd Mazwan Abd Aziz, 34, were calm when the sentence was handed down by Judicial Commissioner Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab yesterday.
However, their family members could not hold back their tears.
Both of them then hugged their family members at the gallery before being led away by policemen.
Mohd Nasir and Mohd Mazwan were found guilty of trafficking in 33.8gm of heroin and 48.6gm of monocetylmorphine in front of a restaurant in Jalan Teoh Moh Soo in Kulim at about 1.15am on June 14, 2012.
Mohd Zaki said the prosecution had proven the case beyond reasonable doubt.
