Police officials among 20 convicted of drug trafficking

Dec 07, 2011 - 14:20

KABUL (PAN): At least 20 individuals, including three police officials, were sentenced from four to 20 years in jail on charges of drug trafficking, the Criminal Justice Task Force (CJTF) announced on Wednesday.

Having defence lawyers to plead their cases, the accused were convicted by an appellant court at the end of an open trial on the basis of evidence, CJTF spokesman, Ahmad Khalid Mowahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Under the relevant law, a convict could move the Supreme Court against the appellate court decision.

Hailing from Farah, Kunduz, Nimroz, Shiberghan, Bamyan, Helmand, Mazar-i-Sharif, and Herat provinces, the men were held with more than 113 kilograms of heroin, 1,060 kg of opium and 195 litres of alcoholic beverages.
