From Iceland — Icelandic Women To Be Interrogated In Czech Republic

Icelandic Women To Be Interrogated In Czech Republic

Published June 26, 2013

Two 18-year-old Icelandic women who were arrested on suspicions of cocaine possession in the Czech Republic in November 2012 are being interrogated tomorrow in the Prague jail in which they have been held.
The interrogation of the two women was meant to take place weeks ago, but a change in prosecutors has caused significant delay in the case, RÚV reports.
According to Þórir Gunnarsson, the Consul of Iceland in the Czech Republic, the women are in good spirits, considering their circumstances, and are taking things one day at a time. After the women are interrogated tomorrow a decision will be made as to whether they can be released pending trial. The Icelanders could face 5-8 years in prison if found guilty.
