SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/Asia News Network): A Malaysian drug courier who escaped the gallows last year after the High Court reduced his charge, was sentenced to death on Thursday (Oct 25) after the Court of Appeal overturned the earlier decision.

Security guard Gobi Avedian, 30, was charged with the importation of 40.22g of heroin, but a High Court judge believed his account that he did not know the bundles he was carrying contained heroin.
