A 25-year-old woman was sentenced to ten years in jail on Monday, after having attempted to smuggle around 9.5 kilograms of cannabis into the country.

The woman had been arrested at Larnaca airport in September, where, after having arrived on an international flight, a check on her luggage was performed by the Customs department.

The check department uncovered five nylon packages containing a combined total of 9.5 kilograms of cannabis.
