Judicial Commissioner Ridwan Ibrahim, in making the decision, said the court had no choice but to pass the death sentence on Khairil Anuar Abdul Rahman, 34, and Afendi Adam, 28, after the prosecution had proven their case against the two men beyond reasonable doubt.
Ridwan, however, did not provide the grounds for his judgment.
Khairil Anuar, a restaurant worker, and Afendi, a painter, were charged in the High Court here on March 12, 2002 with trafficking in 971gm of cannabis in Jalan Rokam, Taman Razaki, here on Feb 28, 2002 with another person still at large.
Deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim prosecuted, while Khairil Anuar and Afendi were represented by lawyers Manjeet Kaur and Ranjit Singh Sandhu respectively.
Manjeet and Ranjit were expected to file an appeal for their clients against the conviction and sentence.
