(Bernama) — The High Court here today ordered Mohd Jusnaidi Omar, the brother of a federal minister, to enter his defence on a drug-trafficking case.
In his ruling, Justice Datuk Ian Chin said the prosecution established a prima facie case during a four-day trial that began on May 26 and fixed June 16 for the continuation of the trial.
Chin also ordered Mohd Jusnaidi, 36, to be tried for a second charge of possessing syabu on the same day.
Mohd Jusnaidi is charged with trafficking in 1.011kg of cannabis under Section 39B (1) (a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act which carries the mandatory death sentence.
He also faces a jail term of up to five years and nine strokes of the cane, if found guilty of a second charge of possessing 23.98g of syabu.
He was alleged to have committed the offences at the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal, Tanjung Aru here about 10am on May 20, last year.
The prosecution team is led by Senior Federal Counsel Suhaimi Ibrahim, assisted by Deputy Public Prosecutor Gan Peng Kun, while counsels Zahir Shah Hussein and Hamid Ismail represented the accused.
