Cannabis sentencing

First published in News

Three men are due to be sentenced after 2,500kg of cannabis was found on a yacht.

Hermann Josef Deuss, 63, and Willi Heinz Riechling, 56, both from Dusseldorf, Germany, and Walter Untermayer, 64, of Austria, were arrested on July 22 after Border Force officers intercepted the yacht off the coast of Newhaven and seized cannabis worth about £7.5 million.

The men appeared at Lewes Crown Court on Wednesday when they each admitted being knowingly concerned in carrying or concealing cannabis on a ship, an offence under the Criminal Justice and International Co-operation Act.

They are in custody ahead of their sentencing after at the same court on October 3.

Whilst I agree with your sentiments, because it is high time that cannabis use was legalized in the UK, the fact remains that this was a crime- the majority of the proceeds of which would have flowed out of the UK.
