Holland: Smugglers with 2,9 kilograms of coke are unpunished
    #2239193 - 01/13/04 02:40 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

http://www.rtl.nl/(/actueel/rtlnieuws/)/...uracao_0500.xml

It's in Dutch, but I'll translate it. The news is a little old though

12-12-2003
Smugglers with 2,9 kilograms of cocaine are unpunished
Drug couriers who smuggle less than 3 kilograms of cocaine through Schiphol Airport do not get punished when they are caught. The limit was set by minister Donner.

The minister thinks it's more important to intercept the drugs than to punish the smugglers. The judicial system doesn't have the resources to punish that many people.

Parlement
The majority of parlement agrees with Donner, mostly because of the lack of jailcells. VVD, D66 and LPF are against the plans, they think the smugglers should be subpoenaed.

100% checks
Yesterday the so-called 100% checks on all flights from Cura?ao started. RTL news can give you the following results. In two days 100 smugglers were caught. Normally around 15 are caught.

Customs seized dozens of kilograms of cocaine. Also the planes were less crowded than normal. Many smugglers are cancelling their flights at the last moment.

----
IMO it's silly and a wste of resources to bug the small time smugglers this much. A few hundred kilograms of cocaine is nothing. 100s of tonnes are smuggled through the harbor.
Almost every drug problem would be solved if they made it legal.

I hate coke, but this is good. People should be able to do it if they want.

What's "2,9 kilos"?? 2.9 kilos?
