Prison sentences ranging from 12 to 18 months in prison were requested on Tuesday by the Namur Prosecution Office before the Criminal Court of Dinant against eight people involved to varying degrees in the cultivation and trafficking of cannabis in Verouenval between April 2017 and September 2019.
Prison sentences of one year and 18 months have also been sought against the main accused and the ninth accused for assault and battery as author/co-author committed on May 28, 2019.
This movement and this culture was dismantled after a minor abuse sponsored by the master dealer. “This minor was caught in an ambush,” the Namur Public Prosecutor’s Office said. “We gave him an appointment to hit him. He bought two grams of hashish in a week from a dealer whose name he mentioned. Phone missions were carried out and on September 10, 2019 several inspections were carried out.
In this merchant, five grams of hashish and remnants of an ancient culture were found. “But in his parents’ house, a smoking area was set up with a table for packing hashish in the attic. There were fifty plants in a greenhouse and outdoors in the garden. It was a veritable jungle of hashish,” added the prosecutor’s office in Namur.
“My client has been a consumer for about ten years. He has supplied himself to Couillet and wanted to facilitate his consumption by growing cannabis in addition,” pleads the master dealer’s attorney. The latter asked for the sentence to be absorbed because his client was recently sentenced to 18 months in prison for acts of the same nature dating back to 2017.
Favorable measures were demanded for the other accused present at the hearing. Judgment on December 20.
