Drug sales on bail earns death

A DRUG dealer was sentenced to death in Shanghai as he delivered more than 10 kilograms of drugs while out on bail, a Shanghai court said yesterday.

The dealer, surnamed Ying, 45, was sentenced to eight years in prison in 2009 for illegally possessing 193 grams of drugs, but the court, in southwest China's Sichuan Province, allowed him out of jail on bail since he had hypertension and heart disease.

But only three months after release, he began trafficking methamphetamine, also known as "meth'' or "ice,'' from Sichuan to Hunan Province and Shanghai, the Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People's Court heard.

"Ying recommitted drug-related crimes especially after the Sichuan court leniently allowed him bail, so he must be severely punished for several crimes," according to the court.
