SIBLINGS LOSE APPEAL AGAINST HANGING

0

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s appeals court on Wednesday upheld the convictions and death sentences on three Mexican brothers for drug trafficking, forcing them to appeal to the nation’s top court as a last resort. The brothers surnamed Gonzalez Villarreal—Luis Alfonso, 44, Simon, 37 and Jose Regino, 33—were sentenced to hang by the Kuala Lumpur High Court last year for their part in a methamphetamine operation along with a Malaysian and a Singaporean. The suspects were arrested at a factory in southern Malaysia in 2008, with police seizing almost 30 kilograms (66 pounds) of methamphetamine and chemicals used to produce the drug.
