French national jailed for drug trafficking

A 63-year-old Frenchman was sentenced to jail for eight years on Thursday after he was found guilty of trafficking 3.5 kilos of cocaine.

The man was arrested in the Linopetra area in Limassol on February 2. He admitted to carrying the drugs to Cyprus hidden in the lining of a suitcase.

The court said it took the defendant’s confession, cooperation with police, clean record, and health problems when sentencing.
