NZ rapper Scribe sentenced to intensive supervision for possessing methamphetamine

New Zealand rapper Scribe has been sentenced to six months intensive supervision for possessing a Class A drug.

Scribe, whose real name is Malo Ioane Luafutu, was found guilty of possessing methamphetamine in March 2018.

The 39-year-old appeared in the Christchurch District Court on Tuesday. He had also been charged with breaching supervision.

The court learned that Scribe is Muslim and illegally left Christchurch after the March 15 terror attack on two mosques.

He was put on six months supervision in December, after admitting breaching a protection order and willful damage of a property.
