A 30 year old Nigerian female student in Malaysia identified as Mary George Unazi, was sentenced to death by the Malaysian High Court today May 14th for trafficking 765.9gm of metamphetamine at the KL International Airport (KLIA) on May 10th 2011.

The presiding judge, Judge Datuk Ghazali Cha, while delivering his judgement said all evidence brought against her proved that she was indeed guilty of trafficking the banned substance. He said she had failed on her part to convince the court that the bag which contained the substance wasn't hers

Unazi was arrested at the baggage claim area at the international arrival hall of KLIA. She was charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 of Malaysia which carries a mandatory death penalty upon conviction.
