From the West Indies, cocaine was found in containers and was to be recovered by traffickers in the Nantes region. Judged for their participation in a large cocaine trafficking at the port of Saint-Nazaire in 2018, three men, including two dockworkers, were sentenced to up to six years in prison on Friday in Rennes.
The defendants, aged 59, 48 and 38 years, were tried since Thursday before the interregional specialized jurisdiction (Jirs) of Rennes for the importation, possession, transfer and transport of narcotics, committed by organized gang on the port of Saint-Nazaire in Montoir-de-Bretagne, in Loire-Atlantique.
The alleged leader of the traffic, a 59-year-old retired docker, had recruited another docker and a self-contractor from the Saint-Nazaire area. The first, aged 48, was in charge of storing the drug, the second of 38 years was to carry it.
In the box of the defendants, one of the henchmen acknowledged having agreed to transport the goods in exchange for a small sum of money, while the second said he did not know that the bags contained drugs.
"Without you the arrival of these products on the national territory was not possible"
According to the court, the traffic allowed them to import more than a ton of cocaine. During the investigation, the customs officers had operated in the port area two record seizures of cocaine, more than 290 and 110 kilos, in January and February 2018. After spotting the drug aboard a ship leaving Martinique, the investigators had equipped GPS plotters that allowed them to identify people receiving the drug in France, says France Bleu Loire Océan.
In its decision, the court largely followed the prosecution's pleadings and sentenced the head of trafficking, who was absent at the trial on medical grounds, to six years' imprisonment with detention and a fine of 300,000 euros.
The complicit dockworker was sentenced to five years and kept in detention. He is definitively prohibited from practicing the docking profession in port areas, and has been sentenced to a financial penalty which will be specified later.
According to the president of the court, François Lavallière, this sentence corresponds to the "seriousness of the facts" committed with full knowledge of the facts. "Without you the arrival of these products on the national territory was not possible," said the magistrate docker, who according to his own confession, participated in the import of at least 150 kilos of cocaine, "more than 600,000 doses of drugs resold later", according to the magistrate. The third man was sentenced to one year imprisonment and a fine of 10,000 euros, without a warrant.
