KANGAR: A 26-year-old welder was sentenced to death by the High Court here after being convicted of trafficking in 1,721.4gm of ganja two years ago. 

Justice Datuk Hasan Lah passed the death verdict on Jefri Ibrahim after being satisfied that the prosecution had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt. 

Jefri, who was clad in a white T-shirt and long blue pants, looked calm and managed a grin when the sentence was read. 

The accused, whose last known address was Kampung Lahar, Mukim Rambai, Tunjang, in Kedah, was charged with committing the offence in Jalan Jejawi Sematang, Jejawi at 5.55pm on Aug 10, 2001. 

Jefri was on his motorcycle when he was stopped by two police officers at a roadblock. 

Two police officers found in the motorcycle basket a black plastic bag and inside it was another plastic bag containing a neatly packed solid object identified as ganja.
