TRNC Supreme Court reject appeal filed by a Nigerian student sentenced to 8 years in prison for drug charges

The TRNC Supreme Court has rejected an appeal filed by a Nigerian student who was sentenced to 8 years in prison for drug charges.

The defendant who was tried in Famagusta District Court for charges of "illegal drug taking" and "illegal drug saving", was sentenced to 8 years in prison. 

He was arrested by the police on January 29, 2019 after he was found with 809 extacy-type drug pills and 20 grams of cannabis-type drugs in an operation held in Famagusta.

He rejected the court verdict and filed an appeal to overturn the verdict.

The decision of the appeal, which was heard in the presence of Bertan Özerdağ, President of the Supreme Court of Criminal Committee, member Beril Çağdal and member Peri Hakkı, was announced on Tuesday, December, 22.

The delegation emphasized the seriousness and gravity of the crime in its unanimous decision.

The delegation mentioned that if the defendant is not caught, he will poison many people and declared that the lower court's decision was not wrong and that they rejected the appeal.
