Hong Kong’s High Court has sentenced three people to almost 30 years in prison for manufacturing methamphetamine.
Hongkonger Kent Lam, 58; Torres Gonzalez Marco Valerio, 35, from Mexico; and Enriquez Anna Mae Justimbaste, 41, from the Philippines were earlier convicted by a jury of conspiracy to manufacture dangerous drugs.
Lam was sentenced to 29 years’ imprisonment while the other two were jailed for 28 years.
4.71 kilogrammes of methamphetamine was found at the defendants’ drug laboratory in To Kwa Wan in March 2019.
He said Lam had sent his daughter, who was 15 at the time, to accompany Valerio when the Mexican went out to buy equipment for drug production.
