A coconut milk seller was sentenced to death by the George Town High Court on Wednesday, September 30th, after he was found guilty of trafficking 208g of cannabis at a food court in Bukit Mertajam, more than two years ago.
Judicial Commissioner Mohd Radzi Abdul Hamid ordered R. Siva Raman, 48, to be hanged, after ruling the defence failed to raise reasonable doubt in the case.
He said the court did not believe the sworn evidence provided by the accused and another defence witness — the only two who testified at the defence stage.
