Popular Science News | Russian Chemist Jailed for Helping Drug Traffickers

Popular Science News – some people say that the TRNC legal system has faults but compared to the Russian system it is light years ahead. A Russian Chemist has just been released from a Russian jail where she has remained since mid-August, charged with helping drug traffickers. Sounds sinister until you realise that she had been called by the defence lawyers to show that poppy seeds imported by a Russian businessman did not contain narcotics. When her report showed that the seeds were drug-free she was arrested and imprisoned for helping to find the businessman innocent.

She will have to return to the court later to defend herself at her own cost. I wonder how many expert witnesses in Russia will now offer their services to help in the defence of business people who possibly refused to pay a bribe to government officials?
