TANGERANG, NETRALNEWS.COM - Rapper Iwa K underwent the first trial of drug posession case on Wednesday (9/6/2017). The trial took place at the Tangerang City District Court. He faces up to 12 years 

Despite the possible sentence, his lawer Chris Sam Siwu still hopes that his client is sent to a rehabilitation center instead. 

"Whatever happens, the assessment has shown that my client needs to undergo rehabilitation," said Siwu
