Czech model charged for smuggling heroin takes U-turn


Czech model Teresa, arrested for attempting to smuggle heroin to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has taken a U-turn like Pakistani politicians.

The 21-year-old model was taken into custody from the Allama Iqbal International Airport in January when she attempted to smuggle 9kg heroin to UAE. Drugs worth Rs150 million were recovered from her luggage.

The woman had managed to pass through two security checks when the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) and Customs officials took her in custody after finding the contraband. In April, the foreigner was indicted for smuggling heroin.

According to details, the Czech model wants to become a great leader and has even got the training for taking U-turns.

The model had earlier confessed to smuggling heroin to UAE but now, taking a U-turn, she said that she had come to Pakistan to do research on Islam.

After spending a year in jail, the foreign model has learned how to take a U-turn. Not only that, she has also adopted the Pakistani culture as she wears traditional clothes and carries a shawl too .

In her latest statement, the model said that she came to Pakistan for modelling and for doing research on Islamic studies.

“But the Customs officials arrested me on the airport, thinking of me as an easy target,” she said. She added that no drugs were recovered from her luggage.
