Comments Off on Moroccan man gets death for Methamphetamine trafficking

SHAH ALAM: A Morrocan man was sentenced to death by the High Court yesterday  for trafficking in more than six kilograms of methamphetamine.

Judicial commissioner Choong Siew Khim sentenced Mohammed Seddiki, 27, a  car salesman after finding the prosecution had proven their case beyond  reasonable doubt.
Mohammed was travelling with two German men – Najib Sayed, 27, and Yossuf  Ezami, 26, – when the offence was committed.
Najib, a dispatch rider and Yossuf Ezami, a marketing officer, were also  charged with Mohammed.
All three were charged with trafficking in 6.6 kg of methamphetamine at  the Kuala Lumpur International Airport arrival hall at 8.45am on Jan 1, last  year.
The court, however, freed Najib and Yossuf after finding their defence had  raised a reasonable doubt.
The two had claimed they had no knowledge of the contents in the bags they  were holding as the bags were given to them by Mohammed.
The three were travelling from Germany and had transit in Instanbul and  Gaziantep, Turkey before arriving Malaysia.
DPP Rozanna Abd Hadi from the Customs Department prosecuted while  Mohammed, Najib and Yossuf were represented by counsel T. Suresh, Karpal Singh  and Datuk N. Sivananthan, respectively.
A total of 10 witnesses testified in the trial.
