Sentencing - Custodial sentence - Duration - Being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of prohibition on importation of class A drug - Disparity of sentence.
A sentence of 12 years' imprisonment for being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of the prohibition on the importation of a classA drug was held to be manifestly excessive in view of an earlier decision of the court. Accordingly, the sentence would be reduced to 10 years' imprisonment.
