Judge Datuk Collin Lawrence Sequerah handed down the sentence on Muhammad Hafizul Rashid Emmy, 29, after finding that the defence failed to raise reasonable doubt on the prosecution’s case.
"After examining the testimony of witnesses and submissions by both parties, the court found that the defence failed to raise reasonable doubt on the prosecution's case on possession of the dangerous drugs.The defence also failed to rebut the balance of probabilities on the presumption of trafficking under Section 37. (da) (vi) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952," he said.
"Therefore, the court finds the accused guilty of the charges against him. The court hereby sentences him to death by hanging,” added the judge.
A woman, believed to be a family member of the accused, who was in the public gallery, was also seen crying after the court handed down the sentence.
