Cannabis trafficking before the Moutier Court. Three defendants are accused of violating the federal drug law to varying degrees. Two of them appeared before the judges on Monday. The third is currently wanted by the police. They are believed to have grown several hundred hemp plants, mainly in St-Imier. The case broke out at the end of 2015 and it made noise, a local sports personality being involved.
A cellar lent, nothing more
The man in question allegedly lent some of his cellar to two young people in their twenties so that they could grow cannabis. According to the indictment, he also financially supported their illegal activities by not asking them for rent and paying the water and electricity bills. Questioned by the courts, he acknowledges having made his premises available for these crops. On the other hand, he denies having participated in the maintenance and harvesting of the plants.
Hundreds of cultivated plants
Between August 2014 and November 2015, the young people would have grown 560, for a production of 3.6 kg of dried cannabis. One of them, who was living in the area at the time, was not a first attempt. He had already set up plantations in his own apartment and then launched a third in an acquaintance's apartment in Pieterlen. In total, he produced between 5 and 5.5 kg of cannabis wholesaled for more than 40,000 francs. The facts are largely accepted. The young man must also respond to various speeding charges.
Subsequent judgment for the absent accused
The third defendant, absent Monday, would have participated only in part of the crops made in St-Imier. He has also sold about 15,000 francs, mainly in the Jura where he is domiciled, as well as in Tramelan and La Chaux-de-Fonds. It will be judged later.
Other offenses judged
Note also that the man accused of hosting these plantations in his cellar is also being tried for two offenses under the Federal Aliens Act. In the first case, he would have accommodated someone who was illegally staying, in the second he would have helped to provide a job for a foreigner who did not have the necessary authorization.
The Public Ministry requires 24 months of suspended sentence for four years against the principal farmer and 12 months of suspended sentence for two years for the man who lent his cellar. The Moutier Court will deliver its verdict on May 6th. / ast
