Three to hang for drug trafficking in Malaysia

A Malaysian court has sentenced three Indonesians to hang for drug trafficking.

Lawyer Rafidi Mohamad said a high court in northern Kedah state found his clients guilty of trafficking more than 4lb of cannabis.

Police found two slabs of the drugs inside a plastic bag in a car the men were driving five years ago.

Mr Rafidi said the men, aged 31, 33 and 42, were sentenced on Sunday. He said that he would appeal against the verdict.

A drug trafficking conviction carries the mandatory death penalty in Malaysia.
