P. Ramlee’s grandson among three acquitted of drug trafficking charge

SHAH ALAM: The grandson of Malaysian screen legend Tan Sri P. Ramlee was among three men who escaped the gallows after the High Court here acquitted them on a drug trafficking charge.

Judge Nurulhuda Nur'aini Mohamad Nor ordered Zakaria Nasir Nasir, 30, who is P. Ramlee’s grandson; Mohd Faizul Zulkipli, 37, and Mohammad Saifuddin Darmawan, 34, to be released after finding that the prosecution failed to establish the case beyond reasonable doubt.

The three men were jointly charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act with trafficking in 4,678.5g of cannabis at an apartment in Puchong at about 3.50pm on Jan 15, 2018.

Zakaria Nasir was represented by lawyers Latheefa Koya and Zaid Malek, while Mohd Faizul was represented by lawyers Rajpal Singh and Phan Yantong Nur Sarah, and Mohammad Saifuddin by lawyer Dir Kheizwan Ab Halim @ Kamaruddin.
