Man charged with trafficking 50.40 grams of syabu
KOTA KINABALU: A 26year-old man was charged at the Magistrate’s Court here yesterday with trafficking in 50.40 grams of syabu.
However, no plea was taken from Tadih Hassan when he was brought before magistrate Cindy Mc Juce Balitus, as the chemist’s report was still pending.
Tadih was alleged to have committed the offence beside the Dang N Cafe Restaurant in Bandar Sierra, Telipok at 8.20pm on October 31.
The charge framed under Section 39B (1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, and punishable under Section 39B (2) of the same Act, carries the mandatory death sentence, upon conviction.
The court fixed December 12 this year for re-mention of the case and ordered the accused to be further detained in custody, pending disposal of the case.
