MALAYSIA: DEATH SENTENCE FOR TWO WOMEN IN PENANG FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING

November 8, 2019:

The High Court in George Town on 31 October 2019 sentenced to death two women after finding them guilty on a charge of trafficking in 294.9 grammes of drugs into the country three years ago.
Judge Datuk Akhtar Tahir ordered Zawani Zulkifli, 33, and Nur Zahirah Yusoff, 32, to be sent to the gallows after finding the defence failed to raise reasonable doubts against the prosecution’s case.
The two women were jointly charged with trafficking in 212.7g of heroin and 82.2 g of monoacetylmorphine at Park View Tower, Jalan Harbour Place, Off  Jalan Assumption, Seberang Perai Utara at 4.45pm on December 18, 2016.
In the judgment, Akhtar said there was no evidence that the women had voluntarily assisted in curbing drug trafficking activities.
“Besides taking into account the drug type, namely heroin and morphine, the defence also failed to raise any reasonable doubts, and therefore, both the accused are found guilty,” he added.
They were charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which provides the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.
