Talking about foreigners

A gang of east European drug smugglers has been jailed for a total of 84 years for trying to smuggle £4 million of cocaine through Dover on a cruise ship.

Eighty four years sounds a lot but it’s only 12 years each then UK’s special prison sentence discount of serving only half of it becomes 6 years for dealing in death.

Seven people – two Lithuanian men, a Lithuanian woman, two Latvian men and two Latvian women – were arrested on May 21, 2010, after 35 kilos of the drug was found onboard the MSC Opera which was en route to Amsterdam from Brazil.

In four cabins UKBA officers found bodysuits designed to be worn under clothing to conceal drugs, and tape or bandages for strapping drug concealments to bodies.

Six of the smugglers pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle the cocaine and the remaining one, Ziedonis Auzins, was found guilty after trial in February.
