Woman Imprisoned for Pandering and Drug Violations

By Iceland Review

Catalína Mikue Ncogo, an Icelandic citizen originally from Equatorial Guinea, was yesterday found guilty in Reykjavík District Court for managing prostitution and drug smuggling and sentenced to two years in prison. However, she was acquitted of charges of human trafficking.

Reykjavík District Court.

The ruling states that Ncogo had initiated and organized the smuggling of 400 grams of cocaine and profited from the prostitution of three women, ruv.is reports.

She was also found guilty of having bitten a police officer in the back while being arrested. The sentence is not probational.

Ncogo has always maintained her innocence and is planning to appeal the ruling. Her lawyer, Sveinn Andi Sveinsson, considers the ruling harsh judging by the nature of the violations his client was found guilty of.

Ncogo was also charged for coercing a woman move to Iceland on false premises, holding her captive and selling access to her body. Ncogo was acquitted of that charge.

An Icelandic man in his forties was given a four-month probational prison sentence for assisting Ncogo on managing prostitution.
