Kanabis - Kuala Lumpur (Setapak) JUN

KUALA LUMPUR: A car repossessor was sentenced to nine years' jail and 10 strokes of the rotan for possessing 210.7g of cannabis.

S. Suresh, 23, was initially charged with trafficking the drug in front of a lift on the ground floor of Block 8, PPR Kampung Baru, in Air Panas, Setapak, about 7pm on March 22, 2006.

He pleaded guilty at the High Court yesterday when the prosecution offered a reduced charge.

In mitigation, counsel S.S. Seelan said Suresh was 21 at the time of the offence and was the sole breadwinner of his family.

Judicial commissioner Zainal Azman Ab Aziz told the accused that he was lucky to have the charge reduced from trafficking, which carries the death sentence. - Sumber
