The sentence seems DRASTIC for the amount of heroin involved 16 grammes (He is not a dealer with that quantity)If this was a Sri Lankan from a rich family, the case would not even go to trial...The Jordanian Embassy should intervene. FIND THE CULPRITS BEHIND THE 90 Kilos COCAINE DISCOVERED IN A SUGAR CONTAINER.....
