2 Bangladeshi expats face gallows for drug smuggling

KUWAIT CITY: Criminal court presided over by Judge Mohammad Al-Duaij sentenced two Bangladeshi expatriates to death for smuggling and peddling drugs. According to the case file, one of the convicts was seized by customs officers at Kuwait International Airport for attempting to leave the customs area without handing over his baggage for security screening.

The convict, who was entering the country under Article 20 visa (domestic visa), was found in possession of one kilogram of marijuana, which he confessed he was smuggling for one of his compatriots who was eventually arrested by securitymen.
