Two Icelandic girls sentenced to 7 years in prison in the Czech Republic

Two Icelandic girls were arrested at the international airport in Prague in the Czech Republic when three kilos of cocaine was found in their possession, last year. Yesterday they were sentenced to 7 years in jail.

Þórir Gunnarsson, the Icelandic consul in Prague was present when the ruling was made and he said that both rulings have been appealed. The girls are 19 years old and they were sentenced to 7 years and 7,5 years in jail. One of the girls had more cocaine in her luggage and therefore received a heavier sentence.

The consul added that there was a lot of tension in the air when the ruling was read. The girls collapsed after the ruling was made. He said that the girls said "I could just die" when the ruling was made, and that they said repeatedly "Oh my god".

The consul added that the lawyer defending the two girls would appeal right away and he said that the judge made wrong assumptions and that she misunderstood documents.
