A PARAÑAQUE City court has slapped a Chinese drug lord with two terms of life in prison after he was caught selling a kilo of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) in an entrapment operation in October 2012.

This means Benny Chua Ang will have to stay at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City for up to 80 years.

"The prosecution has established its cases against the accused (Benny Chua Ang), with moral certainty, proven the existence of elements of the offense charged and that the corpus delicti was properly established and preserved," said Judge Danilo Suarez of the Parañaque Regional Trial Court branch 259 in his decision.

The Philippine National Police said Ang transacted with a police undercover inside his vehicle parked at the Uniwide Sales in Coastal Mall, Barangay Tambo, Parañaque City where he handed over P5-million worth of shabu.

But after sensing that he was having business with a policeman, Ang pushed and kicked him out of the vehicle and locked himself inside.

"The arresting team banged the windshield of the vehicle until the accused surrendered to the apprehending team. Subsequent search on the vehicle yields a backpack containing three red foil packs of Chinese tea which upon inspection contained shabu weighing more or less three kilograms. The boodle money was likewise recovered inside his vehicle," said PNP-Anti-Drugs Special Operatives Task Force chief Benjamin Lusad.

Lusad said Ang is considered a "high valued target" of AIDSOTF for he belongs to a well organized, foreign illegal drug group operating in the country.

He said Ang transacted only with a potential buyer for a minimum of a kilo of shabu which was charged P5 million at street level in 2012.

Lusad said AIDSOTF is "happy" with the decision of the court.

"A pusher in jail saves a lot of our youth. This is another victory against the drug menace," he said. (Sunnex)
