thank you for your reply, I do not know the amount of class A & B drugs as did not know for sure what was being hidden in 4 water boilers on a pallet in my truck (I was paid not to look !) on my other truck it had 250 kgs of rolling tabacco both trucks were sized and the drivers arrested and later bailed to appear next month. this all happened in June of this year. Will the amount I have said change what you have said about the warrant to arrest ? I have not done anything like this before and do not have a criminal record and will the two innocent drivers still be prosecuted with the NCA holding the statement I have sent to them ?
thank you again, what do you think will happen to the two innocent drivers ? will NCA & Customs still go ahead and prosecute holding the statement they have that I made in front of an English solicitor practising here in Portugal /
should I reply to the letter requesting me to go and be interviewed, would it help if I sent you a copy of the letter
what would happen if the bailed drivers who both live in Portugal did not go back for their bail hearing
they are on Police bail
since I message you last, one driver who was driving the lorry with the drugs in has been told he is no longer a suspect at his bail hearing last week and released from bail and the mobile phones and sat nav's being held have been returned this was the investigation by NCA. the other driver that was driving the truck with the tabacco on board is on bail till next Febuary ! do you think that as NCA are no longer pursuing the driver of the drugs consignment. Will the customs do the same, bearing in mind that my finger prints and both drivers and others are on the boxes that the tabacco was in, as these boxes had been used before on other work ( 2nd hand) I have told this to customs in an interview when this first happen as I was given the boxes by another removal company and I also gave the details to customs the name of this person to check finger printing
thank you, ***** ***** still not followed up on the finger printing and interviewing where we were supplied by the boxes. if they were building a case wouldn't they have done this by now its been 4 months since they have had this info
following up on my last questions and answers, one driver that was driving the lorry with drugs on has been released from bail and the charge dropped. the other driver charged with avoiding duty on 250 kgs of tobacco has a county court appearance scheduled for 6th May, the difference is his finger prints are on the boxes and packaging as these were reused boxes and packaging from a removal we had all worked on in the past ! and possibly all our finger prints are also on the boxes and packaging. if it goes to trial what is the likely out come ? if found guilty what sort of sentence (driver has a previous record from 20 years ago)
it went to crown court for trial and was given a six month custodial sentence ! is it automatic to reduce if good behaviour
can I find out what happened at the trial
a year on and the driver convicted ended with 3 months custodial sentence, my two trucks were confiscated and sold off ! my question now is how would I find out if I returned to England would I be arrested ?
A year on and the driver pleaded guilty and served 3 months custodial sentence. my two trucks were confiscated and sold off ! my question is how would I find out if I returned to England for a week later this year (family wedding) would I be arrested ? is there an arrest warrant out for me ready for my return ?
