Icelandic nationals sentenced to 7.5 years for drug smuggling

Prague’s Municipal Court on Friday sentenced two 19-year-old Icelandic nationals to 7.5 years prison for smuggling cocaine. The young women were caught at Prague’s Václav Havel airport on November 7th last year smuggling 3.5 kilograms between them. The decision is not final: the defendants can still appeal. The prosecution had called for sentences of up to 18 years in prison, as the duo allegedly acted as couriers for an organised crime gang.
