In delivering the sentence, Justice Datuk Ghazali Cha said the prosecution had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt, that the men were aware the premises were used to process drugs.
Other incriminating circumstantial evidence were the discovery of Sargunan's shirt and towel as well as some of the accused's toothbrushes in the premises, which indicated that they had spent long hours there.
