Three Accused of Smuggling Cocaine to Iceland

Three individuals have been indicted for smuggling around 430 grams of cocaine from Britain to Iceland with the intention of selling the drug in Iceland.

Two of the men are foreigners but reside abroad, one in Britain and one in Ireland, and the third is Icelandic, ruv.is reports.

One of the men smuggled the cocaine with him when he flew to Iceland.

The court has demanded that the men be put on trial and made to pay their legal costs.

In an unrelated case, the Reykjavík District Court today sentenced a man to two years prison for having tried to smuggle around 2 kg of strong amphetamine—enough to produce around 16 kg—from Paris to Iceland.

The drugs were concealed in two packages in the bottom of the person’s suitcase. Police believe that the man was a carrier and not an organizer. The man confessed to the crime.

In another separate case, the main hearings in the case against seven men who are accused of having organized the smuggling of 19.4 kilograms of amphetamine by mail from Copenhagen to Iceland in early January began today.
