Conned Into Carrying Drugs.

Posted on December 22, 2007. Filed under: News | Tags: , , , , |

They became the unwitting mules of those drug syndicates when they applied for those high paying jobs. Umi Azlim Mohamad Lazim 23 ,a Universiti Malaysia Sabah graduate in Biological Science is now on death row in China for trafficking nearly 3 kilo’s of heroin .

She got the lucrative courier job from an internet site. There are 69 other Malaysians held in China alone relating to drug cases. If you are new and your present job requires you to travel overseas, be wary.

Umi Azlim pleaded guilty and was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve by the Shantou Intermediate Court in May.

In China, all death sentences, immediate or suspended, are reviewed by the Supreme People’s Court. Sentences with a two-year reprieve could be commuted to life imprisonment with good behavior.

She was detained at Shantou Airport on Jan 19. She hails from Kelantan , a state in the North East of Malaysia. There are others like her being detained in other countries for drug related crimes and awaiting their fate.

Her parents were allowed to see their eldest daughter recently. It is very heartbreaking and there is nothing the Malaysian government can do for her. May God be merciful to her.

Job seekers should be wary of those who pay high salaries for little work done .

It is so sad that this poor girl has landed in such a precarious situation. In the past, these syndicates used to prey on young women on holidays in exotic locations who threw caution to the wind when they met a very attractive man. Now, it’s just gotten more insidious with the promise of a dream job. What has the world come to?
