The High Appeals Court rejected an appeal filed by a 40-year-old Bahrain man challenging jail terms received for peddling Shabu in Bahrain.
The defendant was earlier sentenced to five years in prison and slapped with a fine of BD3000. Court files say police caught the defendant in a sting operation.
The suspect fell into a trap set by an undercover agent, who offered to buy BD150 worth of illicit drugs from him. Unsuspecting the police operation, the suspect met the agent and soon after completing the delivery, police officers swooped on the suspect and took him into custody.
