PUTRAJAYA: It’s still the gallows. After a lengthy submission by their lawyer and prosecutor, the nine Filipino men convicted of waging war against the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during the Lahad Datu intrusion five years ago will face the death sentence.

Chief Justice Tun Md Raus Sharif said the decision by the five-man panel of the Federal Court was unanimous, adding that it agreed with the Court of Appeal’s decision that the death sentence was the most appropriate, based on the facts of the case.
