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

The family sent the second one over for company.

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....

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
