BerichtOnderwerp: Malaysian faces death penalty for drug trafficking    wo 5 aug 2015 - 1:24

The Jakarta Post, Tue, August 04 2015,

A 55-year-old Malaysian, Ng Huk Kwan or Jimmy, will likely face the death penalty for his alleged involvement in the trafficking of 46.5 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine.

Prosecutor Zainal Abidin from the Riau Prosecutor's Office told a panel of judges at Pekanbaru District Court in Riau on Tuesday that the defendant had violated articles 113 and 132 of the 2009 Narcotics Law, which carried a possible death sentence.

“For his crimes, we ask the judge to hand down the maximum sentence: the death penalty,” he said.

According to Zainal, Jimmy played a role as a courier to deliver the meth, which was worth Rp 180 billion (US$13.3 million), from one Malaysian with initials ABE to another man in Palembang, South Sumatra. For the service, Jimmy, who entered Indonesia through Dumai Port, was paid 5,000 Malaysian ringgit ($1,301).

Jimmy looked surprised upon hearing the prosecutor’s request.

The presiding judge, Amin Ismanto, then adjourned the court until next week to hear defense pleas.
