11 jailed for life in Philippines for drugs

CEBU, Philippines (AFP) - Four Chinese, two Malaysians and two Taiwanese were among 11 people jailed for life in the Philippines on Friday for illegal drugs, court officials said. Bao Xiafu, Liu Bo, Tao Fei and Joseph Yu, all Chinese nationals, Malaysians Liew Kam Siong and Siew Ken Wing, and Lin Li Ku and Wu Tiao Yi of Taiwan were found guilty of manufacturing more than half a tonne of metamphetamines. Cebu city regional trial court judge Marilyn Yap also sentenced their three Filipino co-defendants to life in prison while setting free British passport-holder Hung Chin Chang, also known as Simon Lao. 'This court has considered death as the penalty... due to the presence of aggravating circumstances,' Judge Yap said in her written verdict.
