GEORGE TOWN: A 32-year-old man has been sentenced to death by a High Court here after he was found guilty of trafficking in more than 6kg of methamphetamine two years ago.
Justice Zamani Abdul Rahim in his judgment ruled that the defence failed to raise a reasonable doubt in the prosecution’s case against Ooi Chun Huat.
Ooi is alleged to have trafficked in 6,104.4gm of the drugs at a house in Taman Tambun Permai, Simpang Ampat, south Seberang Prai at about 11.45am on April 12, 2012.
The offence under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction under Section 39B (2).
Ooi, who wore a red chequered shirt and black track bottoms, merely "smiled" during sentencing.
