Fadley Faisal

A local man was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment by the Magistrate’s Court yesterday, for multiple offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Hamdani bin Haji Wahab, 38, whose case was handled by Magistrates Hajah Ervy Sufitriana binti Haji Abdul Rahman and Mohammad Marzuqi bin Sabtu, was arrested at 10.40am on July 12, 2018, while in a boat in the vicinity of Tanjung Kindana.

No drugs were found on him in a body search, but his urine sample later tested positive for methylamphetamine.

Hamdani had also consumed methylamphetamine on three counts while under supervision, prior to his arrest on July 12, 2018.

Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) prosecutor Ainorazimah binti Haji Zabidi prosecuted the case.
