Man gets jail, rotan for drug charges
MUAR: A 37-year-old man was jailed a total of 11 and a half years and given 10 strokes of the rotan after he pleaded guilty to possessing more than 13gm of two types of drugs.
Tee Bon Heng, from Pagoh, pleaded guilty to possessing 12.09gm of monacetylmorphine and 1.66gm of methamphetamine in a hut at a durian orchard in Kampung Paya Selamat near Lenga on Dec 10 last year.
He faced two charges - Section 39A(2)(C) and Section 12(2) for possession of the two drugs - under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
According to the facts of the case, police found several plastic packets, which contained brown powder and some pills, Tee's driving licence and an identity card in the hut.
Tests carried out by the Chemistry Department showed that the powder and pills contained the two drugs.
Sessions Court judge Norazlan Ahmad then sentenced Tee to 11 years' jail and 10 strokes of the rotan for the first charge and six months' jail for the second charge, and ordered the sentences to run concurrently from the date of arrest.
