Liew Zheng Yang v Public Prosecutor [2017] SGHC 157


We acted for the appellant in this case, successfully arguing that the District Court’s conviction of the appellant for the charge of conspiring with another to traffic drugs to himself was wrong in law. The High Court judge accepted our submission that where an accused orders drugs from another for his own consumption, the accused cannot be liable for a conspiracy to traffic drugs to himself.

The High Court judge accordingly quashed the appellant’s wrong conviction. The High Court judge then convicted him with the lesser (and legally correct) charge of attempting to possess drugs for his own consumption.
