In trying to find ingenious ways to smuggle drugs, a 23-year-old South African woman had drugs woven into her dreadlocks! However she was caught at the Bangkok International Airport in December last year and has now been sentenced to 15 years in jail.
After the court hearing, Nobanda was sentenced to 15 years in a Thai prison for smuggling 600g of cocaine from Brazil to Thailand.
She will sleep on a cement floor and will have to depend on her family to send her money for food, as the food in Thai prisons is barely edible.
Nobanda acknowledges she committed the crime, but says she was a decoy and a victim of human trafficking.
