Farmer, 27, to hang for drug trafficking

ALOR SETAR - A 27-year-old farmer was sentenced to the gallows by a High Court here Monday for trafficking 1997.24g of cannabis.

Judicial Commissioner Datuk Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab handed down the decision after the defence failed to raise reasonable doubt against Fauzi Maim Muhamad Zaki, who appeared calm when the sentence was read out.

Fauzi Maim was charged under Section 39B (1)(a) of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952, punishable under Section 39B (2) of the same act which provides a mandatory death sentence on conviction.

Salim Soib @ Hamid was the deputy public prosecutor while counsel Muhamad Asri Abdul Hamid acted for Fauzi.
