0

A court sentenced a Kenyan and her Filipino cohort, both members of an African Drugs Syndicate, to life imprisonment and imposed on them a fine of P2 million each after finding them guilty beyond reasonable doubt of trafficking 4.5 kilograms of methamphetamine hydrochloride, locally known as shabu. PDEA Director General Undersecretary Arturo Cacdac Jr. identified the convicted persons as Elizabeth Nyambura Runana, a Kenyan, and Maria Grace Navarro Lacson, a recruiter of drug couriers from Concepcion, Tarlac. In a 26-page decision penned by Judge Maria Bernardita Santos of Branch 35 of the Manila RTC, the court found Runana and Lacson guilty beyond reasonable doubt of violation of Section 5 (Delivery of Dangerous Drugs), in relation to Section 26 (Conspiracy) of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. They were both sentenced to suffer life imprisonment without eligibility for parole.
