21 year old Czech model appears before the sessions courts today
LAHORE – A 21-year-old Czech woman who was apprehended at Lahore airport for allegedly smuggling nine kilograms of heroin, appeared before the sessions court on Friday.
Tereza Hluskova appeared before Additional Session judge Shahid Bashir Choudhary in a case related to drugs smuggling bid that was foiled by Pakistani officials at Allama Iqbal Airport, Lahore in January.
Earlier the court recorded the statements of customs officials and others involved in helping the accused. The court adjourned the hearing till August 3.
Durin the hearing, the prosecution told the court that accused Tereza along with her partner Shoaib Hafeez rented a house frome Ishaq where the lawyer of foreign model told the court that there was no record of the rented house.
Czech model was staying in Pakistan for three months on a visit visa, which was issued to her on Nov 15.
The customs officials refused to hand over the alleged smuggler to Anti-Narcotics Force and shifted her to the customs house for interrogation.
Reports say the 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.
