BELGOROD, May 13 (Itar-Tass) - A British citizen was convicted in Belgorod for the crime that he ordered by mail a parcel with heroin in the hotel, where he was accommodated. The foreigner, who is not named, was sentenced to one year in an open prison, the regional court told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The detectives found that in February 2013 the British citizen, who arrived for taking a job in Belgorod, agreed to buy the drug in the telephone conversation. During the search in the postal office a parcel, which was sent from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the hotel room, was found and confiscated. As much as 0.73 grams of heroin were found in the parcel.
At the request of the defendant the criminal case was tried in the special procedure without court deliberations. In the verdict the court has taken into account several mitigating circumstances, as well as the fact that the crime was not finalized over the interference of the law enforcement agencies.
