Tunisia-Drug trafficking: 25-year-old woman convicted to 15 years in jail

The criminal chamber at the Tunis court of first instance convicted a twentysomething to 15 years in prison for bringing cocaine back to Tunisia.

According to the first elements of the investigation, customs agents at Tunis-Carthage International Airport doubted, in June 2021, the 25-year-old woman who arrived in Tunisia on a flight from Turkey.

A passage to the scanner disclosed that she had ingested foreign bodies that turned out to be cocaine capsules.

She confessed during her interrogation that a dealer paid all the costs of her trip to bring the drugs.

The same room condemned the latter, in absentia, to 15 years in prison.
