CHINA: 12 NANJING DRUG DEALERS SENTENCED TO DEATH

June 22, 2017:

Eighteen men were on trial in Nanjing for various offences, ranging from trafficking and possession to drug abuse and re-offending.
Of those on trial, a total of six men were sentenced to an immediate death sentence, while a further six received postponed death sentences, with the remaining six receiving long jail terms, and forced rehabilitation. The sentencing comes just four days before the “International Day Against Drugs”, while it has also been reported that Nanjing Intermediate People’s Court has installed a new court specifically to handle and crack down harshly on drug offenders.
The men were convicted of trying to smuggle drugs inside tires, mattresses and various other objects, which had been sent from southern Chinese provinces to Nanjing, to be sold on the street. One man had ingested a large amount of heroin before flying from Yunnan to Nanjing, Nanjing police found the drugs hidden in the bed awaiting a pick up; he was sentenced to 15 years.
The use of bankcards, cell phones and WeChat transfer were all used in order to commit the crimes and assisted the police in catching the criminals. The men were all convicted of trying to either traffic, conceal, possess or use methamphetamine, ketamine and heroin.
