Man to hang for drugsKOTA BARU: A chicken seller was sentenced to death by the High Court here after he was found guilty of trafficking in almost 2kg of cannabis six years ago.
Ou Seng, from Narathiwat, Thailand, was charged with committing the offence in a house at Kampung Berek Gong Demin at 3.20pm on Jan 10, 2002.
In his judgment, Sulaiman said the court could not accept the accused's defence that the red bag containing 1,996.7gm of cannabis belonged to a friend named Ayub.
Defence counsel Ahmad Nizam Mohamed told the court that on the day in question, Ou Seng and Ayub had gone to the house of another friend, known as "Abang Mat" in Gunong, Bachok, in a car belonging to Ayub.
"Therefore, the accused was not an innocent carrier in this case."
Ou Seng appeared calm when Sulaiman passed the death sentence. - Bernama
