Australia, Sydney: 91 year old man charged with cocaine importation despite not knowing of drugs in luggage.
Breaking News: Man, 91, charged for cocaine smuggling in Australia despite being an unknowing victim. Border police discovered soap packages in his luggage that tested positive for cocaine. The man claims ignorance. Police proceeded with charges, stating: "Claiming ignorance of drugs hidden inside your luggage does not automatically mean you will not face criminal charges... People can expect they will be charged if they... are reckless or wilfully blind to the fact that there could be narcotics concealed inside their luggage or items they are carrying". Most jurisdictions hold passengers responsible for the contents of their luggage, unless they can prove tampering has occurred.
