Three in court for smuggling dagga
By Tando Mfengwana
A South African and two Britons who are suspected of attempting to smuggle marijuana to the United Kingdom are to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's court on Monday.
It is estimated that the dagga had a street value of R175 million. The Scopiorns busted the international syndicate after a tip-off from a member of the public.
They recovered four tons of the high-grade and compressed dagga in a Milnerton warehouse. The dagga was being packed in apple boxes for export to the UK.
