CHINA: CANADIAN SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR DRUG OFFENCES
April 30, 2019:
A Chinese court sentenced a Canadian national to death on 30 April 2019 for producing and trafficking methamphetamine.
Canadian Fan Wei was a leader in the production and trafficking scheme, the Jiangmen Intermediate People's Court said in a statement.
Another suspect, Wu Ziping, was also sentenced to death but Wu's nationality was not given. The court also did not specify the gender of either Fan or Wu.
The court also issued judgments against nine other people, including one American and four Mexicans.
It did not specify what sentences five of the nine received though it indicated the minimum they got was life in prison. It said the other four had been jailed, though it did not say for how long.
All 11 can appeal their sentences.
