Two female drug dealers arrested in Dubai

Two African female drug dealers who managed to skip airport customs in other countries were seized separately in Dubai, with one hiding costly cocaine in her hair and the other concealing heroin in her shoes.

Customs inspectors at Dubai airport caught the two in April after receiving information by the emirate’s counter-drug squads that two African women might be trying to smuggle narcotics through Dubai.

The first women, a 25-year-old Kenya, arrived from Argentina on April 4 and Dubai airport female inspectors noticed an unusual bulge in her hair.

When they asked her about the bulge, the woman said she was using a special hair glue but the inspectors were not convinced.

“When they looked into her hair, they found 10 plastic rolls inside hair curls….they contained nearly 360 gm of cocaine which is known to be very expensive compared with other drugs,” newspapers said, quoting Major General Abdul Jalil Al Asmawi, head of the counter-narcotics department.

He told newspapers that the woman confessed she had received the stuff from a female South African friend who lives in Argentina. “She said she was asked by that woman to deliver the drugs to a man in Johannesburg in return for a sum of money,” he said, adding that the woman has been referred to the competent authorities in the emirate.

The other woman, 28, arrived in Dubai on April 17 and attracted the attention of customs authorities by her confused behaviour, Asmawi said.

He said the woman had come from Faisal Abad and was heading for Nairobi, adding that around 205 kg of heroin were found concealed in one shoe and 198 gm in the other. He said the woman told police she had received the stuff from a Nigerian friend residing in Pakistan and that she asked her to deliver the drugs to a man in Malawi who was to meet her at a hotel. “She said she agreed to do the job in return for 50 bags of rice.””

Lawmakers Fire Warning Shot on Egyptian Aid Amid Interpol Push

April 16, 2012

National Journal on April 15, 2012 released the following:

“By Sara Sorcher

Members of Congress are warning Egypt not to take U.S. funds for granted if it continues to escalate its plans to prosecute nongovernmental workers accused of illegally operating democracy programs and stirring unrest.

Many lawmakers thought the worst crisis in relations between Washington and Cairo in three decades was beginning to abate after seven American pro-democracy workers—including the International Republican Institute’s Sam LaHood, son of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood—were allowed to leave the country last month. Their U.S.-funded institutions paid $5 million to lift the travel ban against them.

But things took a turn for the worse just days after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on March 23 waived the new congressional restrictions on $1.3 billion in military aid to Cairo, which required her to certify that Egypt supports the democratic transition and is protecting basic human rights. As first reported by National Journal, Egypt is now requesting that Interpol issue worldwide notices seeking the arrest of other personnel—including 10 Americans—from IRI, National Democratic Institute, Freedom House, and International Center for Journalists. Egypt considers these personnel to be “fugitives” because they were not in the country when the case began.

“[Egypt] can’t play these games with the NGOs and expect to get the kind of support it needs from the United States and the community of nations,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., told National Journal Daily.

Washington has “a lot of patience” for the country’s volatility as it transitions from the autocratic rule of Hosni Mubarak, Kerry continued. “But, ultimately, they need to know it’s not in their interests to go down this road. We will have to work with the new Egyptian government to determine what kind of assistance is appropriate going forward, and while we want to help for a ton of reasons, nothing can be taken for granted.”

Kerry appears to be hardening his tone after telling NJ Daily on March 27 that he supported Clinton’s decision to allow the aid to flow because “suddenly pulling the rug out from under” U.S. assistance would harm Egypt’s ability to stage a robust economic recovery and guarantee a breach in Washington’s relationship with Cairo.

Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., ranking member of the State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, told NJ Daily she supports the Obama administration’s effort to persuade Interpol to dismiss Egypt’s request for the global arrest notices as “politically motivated.”

The United States is not obligated to arrest anyone subject to these so-called red notices, but suspects are likely to be arrested if they travel abroad. A red notice is often viewed as a precursor to filing extradition papers.

Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, has blasted Clinton’s decision to waive the conditions he authored, saying it sends Cairo a “contradictory message.”

Despite the waiver, the military funds have not yet been disbursed to Cairo—and Egypt’s latest actions are likely to complicate the State Department’s upcoming consultations with a concerned Congress. Already, Senate Armed Services Committee ranking member John McCain, R-Ariz., has said that the United States should delay providing the aid until after Egypt’s presidential elections in late May.

As lawmakers work on next year’s foreign-aid bill, they must decide whether to reinstate or even toughen the human-rights conditions on the Egypt aid—or whether to include the waiver option for the administration.

Some have already toed a tough line. Leahy has warned that if Cairo’s behavior does not change, “I’m not putting money [for Egypt] in the foreign-aid bill next year.””
