Voice print proof helps nab drug trafficker

VOICE identification technology has been used for the first time by a Shanghai court to help convict a drug dealer who was sentenced to death yesterday for drug trafficking.

Voice prints have been used by police but it was the first time judges used it to verify evidence, a lead judge said.

The Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People's Court used the technology to match the voice print of Zhuang Wei, the main suspect in the trafficking case, to tape recorded evidence.

Zhuang denied he had anything to do with the case after he was caught with drugs weighing 188.45 grams.

The court heard that Zhuang sent his partner, Liu Jiaming, to buy methamphetamine.

Zhuang was sentenced to death and Liu, who confessed and cooperated, was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve yesterday.
