Kenyan woman busted for drugs at NAIA

21 posts in this topic

Manila (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN) - A Kenyan woman was caught trying to smuggle nearly 10 kg of ¿shabu,¿ or methamphetamine hydrochloride, into the country from the United Arab Emirates on Friday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said Saturday.

Lina Aching Noah, 36, was arrested after customs inspectors found the illegal drugs, with a street value of about P45 million, in the lining of her luggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, PDEA Director General Jose Gutierrez Jr. said.

Noah, a suspected member of an African drug syndicate, arrived in the country at 7 p.m. on Friday on an Emirates flight from Dubai, Gutierrez said.

The PDEA said that prior to her arrest, it had received a tip from a foreign counterpart agency about Noah, prompting agents to coordinate with the Bureau of Immigration and Bureau of Customs to intercept her.

Noah is being held at the PDEA-National Capital Region detention facility.

They should just put her (with her drugs) on the next plane to China. I understand they have some tougher penalties for carrying drugs than the Philippines do.

Well look at that, silly girl. She will spend the next 50 plus years until she dies, in jail in a foreign country, with no hope of seeing anybody she has ever known again...

 

I just remembered... there was another African, I think Kenyan, arrested just a few short weeks ago for the same thing... I guess they'll become best buddies now.

HS;

 

I totally agree. I mean that. I personally believe drug pushers should face the death penalty. I know most do not agree with me but thats what I believe. It will not stop the drug trade but I will bet anyone a dollar to donuts that in countries with the death penalty the drug rate is a lot lower than in countries which are more progressive so called.

the drug mules tend to be sad characters though

 

btw the Dutch figures of drug use are way below our surounding countries who have less liberal policies

 

meth of course is disgusting stuff but there are plenty of drugs that do not threaten the population healthy much or not more then legal drugs as alcohol do

Don't jump to conclusions guys...this sounds fishy...She boarded a flight from UAE, in Dubai, which has the most sophisticated Drug alert system in the whole wide world and are known to convict innocent passengers on fake drug bust to get incentive and many countries have issued notices on to be careful in dubai airport, they even convict you, if you have pain killers, if your bag brushes off with 0.003 micro grams of cannibis you will be put in prison...read here

Drug laws make Dubai the riskiest destination for unwary travelers

 

· Even painkillers can land the innocent in prison

Knowing how tough it is to smuggle drugs from UAE, why would drug syndicate use that airport and funny thing is, selling drugs in UAE would be 100 times profitable than Philippines pesos..drugs syndicates are evil but not stupid..they could have landed from Kenya itself to PH....

 

People just assume and stereotype everyone..just because she is from Africa does not mean she is mule...she might be an innocent victim..god save her soul if she is....

      I'm looking for a particular steel (might also come in aluminum) product but know that without a "sample" I'm going to be pretty much SOL finding it here without knowing the real name of it or at least having a picture.  So I think if I describe it here maybe someone will known the name or perhaps a brand name or something.   Here goes...  Take a piece of heavy gauge 1.25" square bar.  Remove about  a 3/4" wide strip from the middle of one side and curl the 2 cut edges back towards the opposite side.  Then down the opposite side put a line of say 3/8" holes all the way down.  Maybe every 5th hole is a double so it's like 3/8"X3/4" slot.  I thought this was called speed bar or rack bar or something like that but Google isn't helping.  What's it called?

      I finally had a chance to eat at Cru steakhouse in the Marriott Manila. I heard a few references from our friend @miles-high and thought I would check it out.  Sorry Miles, I was severely disappointed. The wine list was horrible, I mean it was dismal. Come on. They ran out of the best wine on the list after one bottle. I asked if there was a sommelier on staff and the manager came over and informed me they were about to re-do the wine list, "maybe in June or July". What a joke! The wine list was shit. This place is supposed to be "the best" so if you want to be the best then have something other than  a $25 Mondavi Cabernet on the list as a feature. Horrible wine list. I can buy better at Rustans. On this occasion it wasn't about cost, and well,  they couldn't deliver. We asked for a proprietor's list, and it didn't exist. In fact the 'manager' didn't even understand what a "proprietor's list " was. I had to explain it to her. How embarrassing for her, and Marriott.  Regardless it was horrible. I don't mind paying 4-5 or hey, lets get on it and spend 10 times retail for a really good bottle of wine. After all it is allegedly the best steak house in Manila. Well, not even close!  They tried selling me a $25 bottle of Robert Mondavi available in every Walgreens  for 15k PHP. What a load of shit. The best bottle for value  on the menu was an Aussie Shiraz and they only had one bottle available. OK so moving on past the wines, after all its a steakhouse, right? So what about the steaks? Sous vide for the steaks with reverse sear tastes different than a properly cooked steak. I was NOT impressed at all. This was probably the worst experience I've had at a signature Marriott restaurant anywhere in the world.  Avoid at all costs and save your pesos boys. That was a complete waste of my time and money. I could do better getting pissed up at home, with a few  run of the mill steaks from Kroger and about 30 minutes of my time in my outdoor kitchen.  What a huge disappointment. The staff were great but they can only do so much. I blame the food/bev manager at Marriott for this disaster.  Never again starts my thoughts on Cru Steakhouse Manila.
