About 10 grams of hashish were seized in a Frenchman’s luggage on Tuesday November 15 at Plaisance airport.
The 33-year-old man arrived in Mauritius from Dubai. Customs officers intercepted him and checked his luggage, including a backpack in which a sachet containing hashish was discovered.
A provisional drug possession charge was laid against the Frenchman when he appeared before the Mahébourg court. He remains in preventive detention.
