COURT: Wong Yan-kam, you stand convicted on your own plea of guilty of one charge of trafficking in a dangerous drug.

The drugs involved are 398.40 grammes of a crystalline solid containing 394.44 grammes of methamphetamine hydrochloride, commonlyknown as “Ice”.

For that quantity of drugs, I adopt a starting point of 15 years, as suggested by your counsel.

I have taken into account every thing urged on your behalf and I have considered the contents of the two letters which have been handedup to me.

Having considered all of them, in particular your plea of guilty and your co-operation with the police, I shall reduce the sentenceto one of 10 years’ imprisonment from the starting point of 15 years’ imprisonment.

You will therefore go to prison for 10 years.
