English Court Sentences Croat To 8 Years In Prison

A jury at the Canterbury Crown Court in England has found a 34-year-old lorry driver from Croatia guilty of attempting to smuggle approximately two kilos of cocaine, 150 kilos of cannabis resin and 30 kilos of herbal cannabis into the UK.

Damir Komaromi was sentenced immediately after the jury reached its verdict yesterday to eight years in prison. Border force officials stopped a Slovenian-registered lorry at Dover in September last year and found the drugs hidden amongst pallets in brown boxes.

“This case should serve as a warning to anyone tempted to try to smuggle drugs into the UK. We will catch you and bring you before the courts,” said Border Force officer Malcolm Bragg, reported British media.
