KUALA LUMPUR (23/01/2017): A married couple was charged in the Ampang Magistrate's Court here today with two counts of drug trafficking. 

However, no plea was recorded from clerk Lai Sook Kwan, 25, and her trader husband, Tan Kean Yap, 30, after the charges were read out before Magistrate Haslinda A. Raof. Tan and Lai, who is pregnant with her second child, face the death penalty if found guilty of the charges made under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act. 

They were jointly-charged with trafficking in 52.8gm of Nimetazepam and 181.8gm of Methamphetamine at a house in Jalan Perdanan 2/24, Taman Pandan Perdana here at 8.30am on Jan 11.

She pleaded not guilty to all charges. The three charges were made under Section 12(2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, punishable under Section 12(3) of the same law, which provides for imprisonment of up to five years, or a fine not exceeding RM100,000, or both, if found guilty. 

The couple was represented by lawyer Amirul Ridzuan Hanif. Deputy public prosecutor Raihanah Abdul Razak, who prosecuted, did not offer bail. The court set March 23 for mention of all cases. -- Bernama
