Court to announce verdict of 9kg heroin smuggling case on November 3

LAHORE: The Sessions Court announced that verdict of 9 kilogram heroin smuggling case will be announced on November 3.

On 29.10.2018, Additional Sessions Judge Ali Raza reserved the verdict involving Czech model Tereza Hluskova who was arrested with nine kilogram of heroin powder from Allama Iqbal International Airport.

Earlier the court had recorded the statements of customs officials and others involved in helping the accused.  During the hearing the defense counsel told the court that the accused lady is in hot water due to delay in the final decision of the case.

On her reservations, the judge said “the final decision will be made in the first week of the month of November.”Tereza Hluskova was attempting to smuggle the heroin from Lahore but she was intercepted by Customs officials. Hluskova was on three-month family visa to Pakistan.

Later, an alleged facilitator of the women named Tariq was arrested. According to the accused facilitator, Tereza was sent by his brother’s friend and it wasn’t her first visit. The model in her statement said that she was in Pakistan for modeling purposes and did not know who placed heroin in her luggage.

Earlier, the session court indicted the Czech model in the heroin smuggling case but Hluskova pleaded not guilty before the court.

Woman was arrested by customs after she managed to pass through the two checking counters of the ANF. The model, however, says she did not know how the drugs found their way into her bag as she visited Pakistan just for professional engagements.
