Sunday 24 Jul 2011

Four friends, including a Thai drug kingpin, were sentenced to death by the Alor Setar High Court here today after they were found guilty of having trafficked cannabis, five years ago.

"I am satisfied that the prosecution has proven its case beyond all reasonable doubt," Judicial Commissioner Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab said when delivering his verdict.

Mohd Sabri Ishak, 36, Muhamad Hasbi Baskaran Abdullah, 41, Jarry Saeddanee, 37, a Thai national, and Azizan Hamid, 45, were detained by undercover police officers disguised as drug buyers at Bukit Kayu Hitam on May 20 2006.

The men were charged with joint intention of trafficking cannabis weighing 93,070 grammes at Jalan Taman Seri Temin, Bukit Kayu Hitam, about 7 am the same day.

They were charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and received the mandatory death sentence under Section 39(B) of the same act.

Both Mohd Sabre and Muhamad Hasbi were from Penang and worked in the cargo section of an airport and as a lorry driver respectively while Azizan was a fisherman from Langkawi.

The prosecution was led by deputy public prosecutors Nor Shuhada Mohd Yatim and Mohd Sabri. Muhammad Hasbi Baskaran, Jaren and Azizan were represented by counsel R.S. Rayer, S. Yagoo, Ali Munawar Razak and Datuk Abdul Halim Said respectively.
