Drug abuser’s jail sentence upheld

|     Fadley Faisal     |

THE High Court yesterday upheld the five-year prison sentence for a notorious drug abuser who failed in his bid to have it reduced.

Chief Justice Dato Paduka Steven Chong did not consider Awangku Abi Hurairah bin Pengiran Md Daud’s sentence for the consumption of methylamphetamine to be excessive, as he already has a record of previous convictions.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Amiriah binti Haji Ali represented the Public Prosecutor as respondent.
