62-year-old Indian woman faces gallows in Malaysia

Fazila Bee Abdul Kareem, a mother of three children, was charged last month with trafficking in 2,925 g of ketamine at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13, 2009.

In her ruling High Court judge Noor Azian said it did not make sense that the accused had come to Malaysia to work as claimed by her.

She said that if what Fazila claimed was true, she would have details of her employer and would also possess a work permit.

Fazila, she noted, came here on a tourist visa.

"Her evidence is not consistent and is a fabrication," Noor Azian said, adding that Fazila's testimony that another Indian woman had asked her to check-in her bag at the airport in India did not make sense.
