Duo sentenced; plane confiscated
WILLEMSTAD - M. T. (Turkey, 1965) and E.J.W. (Curaçao, 1974) were sentenced today by the Court of Justice to 6 years in prison for their involvement in the export and possession of 290 kilos of cocaine.
The man K. A. (Turkey, 1963) heard acquitted. His role in the whole could not be proven by the Court.
The case came to light on October 30, 2016, when the men were arrested at Hato Airport with 290 kilos of cocaine, gloves, hats, a firearm, a padlock and a scissor. The drugs were on board of an aircraft stationed at the airport. This was confiscated by the court at the request of the prosecution.
The prosecution will soon proceed to auction them.
