Drug dealer sentenced to death by Sibu High Court

SIBU: A drug dealer has been sentenced to death by the High Court here on Monday (March 13).

Judge Datuk Christopher Chin meted the sentence after finding the accused, Loi Kwong Kiat, 53, guilty of drug trafficking.

Loi was jointly charged with another man Loh Kung Huat, 56, under Section 39B (1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act for trafficking 65.94g of methamphetamine on July 20, 2020 in a house in Lorong Tun Ahmad Zaidi Adruce.

The law provides for a death sentence by hanging upon conviction or a life sentence and 15 strokes of the rotan.

Loh, however, was acquitted and discharged last year after the court found that the prosecution could not establish a prima facie case against him.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Kenneth Mark Netto prosecuted the case while Loi was represented by counsel Rosli Gapor.
