Court finds youth guilty of drug trafficking

8th December, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: A 22-year-old youth was sentenced to death by the High Court here, yesterday, after he was found guilty of trafficking in 749.4gm of syabu.

Lim Cheng Yung appeared calm before Judge Datuk Nurchaya Hj Arshad when the decision was handed down.

The court among others held that upon a consideration of all the evidences adduced, the court found that the prosecution had successfully proven a case beyond reasonable doubt against the accused.

“The accused is found guilty as charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 (Act 234) and convicted and sentenced to death by hanging to the neck until death,” Nurchaya said.

Lim had trafficked in the drugs on May 19, 2016, at 2.50pm at the arrival hall of the Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

He was convicted under Section 39B (1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act which provides for the mandatory death sentence.

The prosecution had called six witnesses during the trial and the accused was the sole witness during his defence. The trial began on July 10.

Customs Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Nazir Amir Johari prosecuted the case while counsel Ram Singh represented Lim. – ECA
