Judge Noor Azian Shaari sentenced Ferry Linbark, 44, a Swedish of Iranian origin, after finding him guilty of trafficking in 4.3kg of methamphetamine at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport arrival hall at 10am on Dec 6, 2011.

The drugs were found at the bottom of Linbark’s bag.

In her decision, Noor Azian said the defence had failed to raise reasonable doubt on the prosecution’s case.

She said Linbark, who owns a bar in Pattaya, Thailand, had relied on mere denial in his defence against the charge.

“We, therefore, find the accused guilty.

“With no other alternatives available, the court has to impose a sentence of death as provided under the law,” she said.

Deputy public prosecutor Naziah Mokhtar from the Customs Department prosecuted while Linbark was represented by Manjit Singh and L. Ramesh.

A total of nine witnesses testified in the trial.
