Zambian drug-trafficker to hang

2010-06-25 12:54
Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia's High Court on Friday sentenced a Zambian national to death by hanging after he was found guilty of attempting to bring almost 160 grams of drugs into the country four years ago.

The judge ruled there was no evidence to support Emmanuel's allegations that he was set up by anti-narcotics police.

The police said Emmanuel, 31, passed 37 rubber capsules containing heroin and monoacetylmorphine while in custody after he was arrested at Penang International Airport in northern Malaysia in October 2006.

Malaysia's tough drug laws prescribe a mandatory death sentence for those found guilty of trafficking most types of drugs.
