A Taiwanese drug trafficker Wednesday was sentenced to death in Xiamen for smuggling 370kg of ketamine, reports Xiamen Economic Daily.
The Taiwanese man, surnamed Huang, together with 3 other Taiwanese men, had allegedly smuggled 370 kilograms of ketamine (a drug which is becoming increasingly popular with clubbers) from Guangdong to Taiwan over the past few years, according to the Intermediate People’s Court of Xiamen.
Huang and his accomplices had all together bought about 370 kilograms of ketamine in Humen Town of Dongguan City 5 times during March to June of 2009, according to the court.
These drugs were then secretly transported to Xiamen by one of the accomplices who was surnamed Li and were handed over to Yang, who was stationed in Xiamen.
When Yang got these drugs, he hid them in beer boxes or fruit boxes and then contacted another Taiwanese man surnamed Xu.
Xu was a shipman on a Xiamen-Penghu cargo ship, and when the ship stopped in Xiamen, he would secretly transport these drugs to Taiwan.
On 5th June, the 3 accomplices of Huang were arrested in Xiamen during their dealing.
