The quantity of drugs involved is 992.04 grammes of a crystalline solid containing 981.99 grammes of methamphetamine hydrochloride.These drugs were imported into Hong Kong from across the border.
All things considered, I adopt a starting point of 19 and a half years’ imprisonment, enhance it by 1 and a half years, making atotal of 21 years.
I have taken into account everything urged in mitigation on your behalf. There is really no other real mitigation apart from yourearly plea of guilty for which I shall give you the full one-third discount, thereby reducing the starting point to one of 14 years’imprisonment.
You are therefore sentenced to 14 years’ imprisonment.
