Two Canadians plead guilty of smuggling cocaine into Sydney

Australian media reported that two Canadians changed their pleas to guilty ahead of a trial of smuggling cocaine on Sydney ship. Melina Roberge and Andre Tamine had initially denied their roles of importing 95 kg of drugs on the passenger ship MS Sea Princess in 2016. When the ship docked in Sydney, police sniffer dogs found 35 kg of cocaine inside their shared cabin and 60 kg was more discovered in Tamine’s cabin. According to authorities, the cocaine had an estimated value of A$21m which is one of Australia’s largest seizures on a passenger boat. Roberge and Tamine will be sentenced as soon as the trials are done.
