Romanian receives death sentence in Malaysia

The appeal of Ionut Alexandru Gologan, the Romanian citizen sentenced to the death penalty for drug dealing in Malaysia, has been declined. His lawyer has introduced, as a matter of urgency, a request for an appeal to a higher Court – the Federal Court of Justice, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE). Ionut Alexandru Gologan, aged 23, from Prahova County, was arrested for drug dealing and sentenced to death by the Court of first instance. According to MAE, the Romanian Embassy to Kuala Lumpur has taken ‘multiple steps through diplomatic and consular channels for offering specialised assistance to the Romanian national, especially for identifying the best available defence options, to avoid the capital punishment’. On 26 June 2012, at the international airport of Kuala Lumpur, 1,494 grams of methamphetamine were found in the luggage of the young man who was working as a part-time driver.
